I was planning to make some jungle trees as my next terrain offering, but an unexpected arrival of some Fenris Games parts meant that I used the bases I had cut for some scatter terrain instead. All of the studio photo-shoots for White Dwarf in the 1990s featured copious amounts of barrels and crates (as in the header of this blog, for example) and these are my modern versions. The tech crates and wooden crates are by Fenris Games, the wooden ammo crates are by Victoria Miniatures and the barrels are a mixture of Games Workshop and Tamiya 1/35 WWII German 200L oil drums (and also jerry-cans from the same kit).
The crate with hazard stripes is my homage to the 1990s 40K battle reports. The “Take and Hold” mission required taking a certain place on the board, which was represented in the White Dwarf battles by a crate with hazard stripes on top.
