Wanted to get my hands on the new 9th Edition rules and having missed out on the limited edition boxed set (I made zero effort to get it, but was amused by the Games Workshop induced carnage), I thought the Command Edition starter set was spectacular value.
About the only downside of the scenery is that the building sections are not modular so a bit like the Ryza ruins they are what they are unless you want to take a razor saw to them and spend hours converting them.
The detail is what we have come to expect from the latest Games Workshop scenery and is fantastic makes painting them good fun.
Did experiment with some rust and charcoal weathering powders on these which I am quite happy with the results, particularly the rusted floor plates.
Some new variants on the thermo plasma or whatever they are conduit pipe sections. Simple paint job on these with Rust-oleum Gunmetal spray, detail work in greys and metallics, rust washes, gloss varnish and then oil washes. Sealed with satin finish.
Forgeworld tank traps. These are used to block the movement of enemy ground based vehicles, slowing down any armoured assault. The kit contained three sets of Tank Traps based of a Master Model by Mark Bedford
(Product Code TR-40K-S-085..) was £18 for the set back in 2006,
Shown here with a ruined pillbox from Unreal Wargaming Studio.
I loved going into Wargames and then as it became, Dice and Decks in Southport. Martin had a great setup and I really loved the Forgeworld scenery he had available for use.
When Martin decided just before the world went mad with COVID-19 to close the store and move to a warehouse and online setup he sold up a lot of furniture. I went in for a battle mat and a table and cheekily asked about the scenery.
No battle mats to be had, but a deal was done for the Forgeworld scenery and a long desire to get hands on with this amazing and now out of production scenery was done. So pleased to have managed to get this stuff.
As you’ll see form the photos it is not mint condition it’s all be used and is a bit worn, but it’s good enough for immediate use and with a few repairs will be back to a great standard in time!
Photographed here with some of my own stuff and a new Battlemat which I think works quite well in combination.
It’s definitely given me the appetite to try and get a few other bits and paint this stuff up!
Look at those barricades, there is a set of those of I remember rightly!
