Reaper Bones 80035: Dumpster & 80034: Weapons Locker (Part 2) + Mantic’s Mars Attacks Street Bins (Red Brick Terrain Urban Accessories)

Reaper Bones 80035: Dumpster & Mantic Red Brick Terrain Urban Accessories, Mars Attacks

A callback to a couple of pieces I finished last January, when the world was a very different place. I’ve now dug out the two remaining, part-completed Dumpsters and the second two Weapons Lockers from whichever Reaper Bones kickstarter that they came from, and gotten them complete. The main thing stopping me was the rather horrid Vallejo Masking Fluid that I had applied to these, where I assume that the latex had gone bad with age, so it caused all of these pieces to be rather sticky and horrible. So they got put away in a plastic tub and forgotten about.

I also found a trio of street rubbish bins, formerly from Mantic’s Mars Attacks game that have now been repurposed into the Red Brick Terrain Urban Accessories kit and quickly got them painted up in the sort of green that you’d see here in Melbourne before the public bins all changed to large transparent ones in more recent, post-terrorism times. Naturally, I found another one of them yesterday as well, so I’ll have to get that one painted up soon…

The impetus for getting these out and finishing them was the fact that we’ve been looking at some other skirmish games to play, and these include Days Gone, which is a Zombie Apocalypse game put out my Guerilla Games, as well as Crisis Protocol – both of which use modern stuff,m particularly stuff that fits the modern urban setting. Obviously, they also fit 40k and Necromunda as well since those settings are pretty flexible unless you’ve drunk the GW kool-aid of recent years that says all terrain must be from Citadel in manufacture and covered in skulls…. 😀

A Space Marine, a Hasslefree model that absolutely is not of Simon Pegg, and a Zombicide figure that is not Basil Fawlty here provide us with some size reference…

  1. Fantastic work on all mate, they look well weathered, and I quite like the fact that they’re not covered in skulls. Was ynaware that Melbourne had done clear rubbish bins, so learnt something new today as well !

    • Cheers, Dave! Yeah, my personal headcanon version of 40k does feature the skull-encrusted places, but also places that look like, say, the gleaming towers of Singapore and the brutal, square grey of Soviet apartment blocks.

  2. I’m surprised by how tall those dumpsters are and I’ve never seen them in that shape either come to think of it. Regardless, they look look awesome and so do the storage crates. Are you planning on playing Last Days (I think Days Gone is a video game) by any chance? If so, I demand and expect a battle report 😀 I’d love to give that game a try one day. Maybe as I get more Fallout terrain done I’d be well suited to trying it as I’d only need minis to play which would be nice. Usually its the other way around!
