A couple of new terrain pieces for Epic and HotT

Multi purpose terrain .. just love it. At the same time that I bought my Spartan Games Flyers and Airboat, I also bought these two terrain pieces. They are made by 'Itar's Workshop' in the USA (www.itarsworkshop.com ) - a Power Transformer, and a Power Control Station.

I bought them as Epic terrain pieces, but reckon that they will make nice 'Stonghold' pieces for the 20mm British VSF HotT army.

So, I've posed them here with a few stands from the VSF army.

The brand new Airboat overflies the stronghold .....

A steam powered robot clanks its way through the terrain...

Some Shooters stand guard ...

They'll do nicely thanks. OK ... what's next????

As she arrived she was escorted in by Carruthers' existing flying forces.

Now considering himself a technocrat, Carruthers couldn't resist the temptation of having his photo taken alongside some of the marvellous array of technological watsits and thingamies now at his command.

Needless to say, the pink gin flowed freely at the after function, and Carruthers pondered whether he should be thinking a little more seriously about the deployment of these fantastical machines in his upcoming campaign (HotT Carnage, 26 November).. just before the clouds (or was that the alcoholic haze) obscured his view of his shiney new airforce.
