If you’ve ever considered spicing up the terrain for your Gundam games, you might consider building some destroyed Mobile Suits such as these:
On the left is a destroyed Zaku II, and on the right a destroyed GM and its shield. Terrain such as these are easy to build and paint! I used two cheap old 1/144 scale original Gundam kits (These will set you back less than $4 each if you look online!) mounted on bases made of paper clay, wood glue and fine sand. The kits were then spray painted and hand painted to achieve the look. Feel free to embellish the pieces with bullet and plasma wounds (created here using a heated up metal spike to melt the plastic). For best painting results for wounds, use black paint and then drybrush dark brown, followed by silver highlighting around the very edges.
As an aside I’ve been working on some more model making projects. Recently I’ve picked up some Perry Miniatures 28mm models. I plan on having a set of Desert Rats and Afrikakorps to complement each other! Perhaps I’ll consider making rules for that as well!
Here’s some images of the desert rats. Afrikakorp still to come!
You can expect an updated edition of Mobile Suit Gundam: Skirmish as well in the next few weeks hopefully!
