Chris Palmer Last week, when I was at Target shopping, I noticed these small plastic faceted ornaments in a tube for $1 in the bargain section they have at the front of most Target stores. I thought they would have a number of gaming uses, the easiest and quickest of which would be as some sort of storage tanks. I think they would work for 6mm, 10mm, or 15mm. I imagine they would also make fine smaller tanks for the larger scales.
|The plastic caps pull off easily. The necks however need to be filed flat a little.|
|To experiment, I glued four of them to a cut down plastic card.|
|I then sprayed them black.|
I then sprayed drybrushed them with a couple shades of tan, and applied some decals to complete the effect.
|Shown with some 10mm figures.|
I think these turned out well. One thing I noticed after I completed this project, is that not all the ornament necks are the same length. So in the future I would be more careful about matching them up to be the same height.
