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…

More terrain today – though these have been on the go for months in a neglected sprayed-silver state. I could have finished these next month for the Neglected Models challenge, but I wanted to get them done this month for Terrain Month. We’ve got a pair of Reaper Bones models in a harder plastic – one Dumpster and also two Weapons Lockers.

I tried a different method for the chipped paint for these – I have (had, soon!) a little bottle of Vallejo Masking Fluid, so I added bits of that to the silver (after a gloss spray again) before going over it with the dappled greens and browns. Unfortunately, as I rubbed it off, it left a horrible sticky mess and was shitful to work with, so I’ll be disposing of this bottle. I might try it again with a freshly purchased on and see how it goes.

I’ve got another two “Weapons Lockers” and two more dumpsters, though I’ll be doing them in a couple of different colours, and they’re nowhere near finished yet – and as these ones are done, you can see them now!

For a bit of a laugh, the size comparison pic has some Dark Angels Marines posing while the whole lot is on a green background. Fairly nice bits of terrain, but that’s one fucking HUGE dumpster compared to every one I’ve seen in my own life…
