Sorry to derail your thread @MancInventor

It’s not derailed just yet :ROFLMAO:. To be honest, it’s a healthy topic, and it’s good to hear debate about something that isn’t Britain’s place in the European economic union lol. I didn’t mean to admonish anyone and I’m sorry if that’s the way it came off.

Besides, I think most of the derailment was caused by myself and @Resmire and discussion about our common experience. In fact, I think @Lyracian had a similar experience against @Edelweiss. I know my poor boy @Yaksam having won a battle against her watched as she rolled ‘full recovery’ for the 5 people he’d taken out of action and then proceeded to roll dead, dead for the 2 people she took down which included his heavy; she lost but her gang rating leaped up whilst he was left in tatters. He had to start again. I’m on the verge of starting a petition to ban @Edelweiss from playing any Wargames, she is an anomaly vortex. She is an anomaly of an anomaly because her anomalies are constant. She is the lasgun that takes down the bane blade, she is the proton torpedo fired without a guidance system that takes down a moon sized space station, she is the infection that destroys an army of invading Martians. She is Leicester City winning the premier league. @Edelweiss is the green in a red or black bet, she is the one who hits the small target in full cover that is fast moving with a BS of 2, she is the guardsman that defeats the hive tyrant in hand to hand combat. If @Edelweiss fell into the centre of a minefield she’d come out with an extra ice cream. She’s genuinely not bothered about her stat increases because even with a BS of 1 she’d still hit you in hard cover - and then you’d roll dead on the serious injury table despite wearing carapace armour and being hit by a thrown rock. She is the arrow in king Harold’s eye, she is the ball bouncing off Harry Kane's heel into the goal. She is the only person that would routinely win with a goblin only army (pre AOS). Edelweiss could roll a D6 and score 7. Don’t play Yahtzee with Eidelweiss, you may as well play “pointless” against google. She must be stopped before she ruptures the space-time continuum. Edelweiss has lead to a new branch of mathematics called improbability. If you need your new Juve to take down a bloodthirster, get edelweiss to roll your dice.

Don’t believe me? Ask @StusIdle what happened to his pitslave in the THUNDERCUBE!! Despite destroying the 3 other guys and charging Edelweiss, who up to this point had achieved nothing other than moving 2” and shooting 3 of her own fans - he proceeded to roll 3 ones on his attack dice and watched in horror as her pit slave nonchalantly picked him up and lobbed him into the death pit. She finished 3rd overall out of 25 despite having killed twice as many of her own fans than she did other pit slaves!

Sorry for the derailment folks lol, back to some good ol’ fashioned terrain!

Sort of glad I missed the boat for Tribemeet 2019, I was sorely tempted to plaster everything in poster paint and have done with it readfor the event. Now I’ve decided to add a fuel tank to my “pond of death” terrain tile, here’s the progress:

Marked out a bit of cardboard to be the walkway then cut down a length of resin pipe to fit it. The idea was to have something that looked legit but provided plenty of opportunity for falling in the drink.


Nothappy with just a sheet of cardboard for the floor, I reinforced it will matchsticks from a craft store.


Then used plasticard to texture the surface and added a valve assembly


I glued some accoutrements to the coffee mate tin then did a dry test:


Note, by this point I had aLready lined the pond with corrugated material.

So you’re not going for my ‘actual toxic sludge’ approach then? :p
Looking great!

I think I still have a t shirt with your “actual toxic sludge” on it!

I was merely helping to find the answering to an age old question.... “is that wet?”
:LOL:

I am simultaneously intrigued and concerned by this conversation, and I am not sure if I want to know what you two are talking about :unsure:

Cool tile though @MancInventor !

Thanks for the support guys.

So, I’m currently not in the country for a couple of weeks, internet is scarce too. But before I went I tried out a little something I discovered quite by accident.

Drawing notes on the back of a pad with a mechanical pencil and the lead snapped making a nice impression in the card. Looked just like a 40k scale rivet!

So:
I measured the fuel tank and drew out some strips and embossed the rivets at regular intervals then I cut the strips out:


I’m really happy how they turned out. Then I just stuck them in position:



And it’s not all bad being here, when in Gibraltar:

There’ll be a couple of updates soon, now I’ve repaired my airbrush I just wanted to lay some paint down. I’ve got an event I’m organising next week, after that I’ll be back in the game.
