Reaper Bones Shipping Containers Part 2 – 80036: Shipping Container; (unreleased?): 10″ Shipping Containers?

Reaper Bones Shipping Containers 80036: Shipping Container; (unreleased?): 10" Shipping Containers?

Sort-of on the heels of my last post featuring Reaper’s Shipping containers, I have the last three of the six I got in their kickstarter. The smaller of the three is the same type as in my previous post of containers, but the other pair… they’re a bit of an odd mystery. They’re about 10″ long, but Reaper only lists a 20′ shipping container with an image that makes it look the same size as their regular 5″ ones. So…. that link might be them, it probably is, but.. who knows exactly? I’d have thought listing the actual sizes of the models would probably have been more useful, but what do I know? naturally, the 3″ ones from my previous post aren’t listed at all, at least not when you search for “shipping container” or “container”….

Anyway, more scenery for modern, zombie, apocalypse, superhero or sci-fi games. And a little subset of a Kickstarter terrain built, painted, done and dusted. I’m happy enough with that.

Marvel Crisis Protocol Terrain: Dumpsters and Street Lights

Marvel Crisis Protocol Terrain: Dumpsters and Street Lights

Continuing with the recent themes of dumpsters and large, square metal boxes, today I’m showing the first four bits of terrain from Marvel Crisis Protocol that I’ve painted. These also wrap up my September posts with the Round-up to follow very shortly. I’d managed to resist the game, but a series of articles by Justin over at The Solo Meeple as he painted his way through his collection slowly turned me over a few months from indifference to very interested – and then when I looked around online it turned out that pretty much all of the feedback for the game was quote positive through different review channels that I follow on YouTube, forums like Dakka and Reddit, and now they have an impending release of The Punisher and several of the X-Men

It also tied in with the thoughts of using some Zombie models to play something like Last Days, and then a box magically appeared in my house, fileld with Marvel Goodies! What else could I do but put all of the hero and villain models to one side and start assembling the terrain pieces…?

The mentality there is “saving” the best for last… With a complete lack of heroes to stand alongside, we once again have a Hasslefree model that absolutely is not of Simon Pegg to provide us with some size reference, alongside one of those Mantic bins…
