Managed to see a blister of the new Ork Trukks (or battlewagons as they are referred to) and though most are new, some are conversions of the older models (as we were promised) and it does seem a little strange to see the Flakwagon Trukk as a whole casting as opposed to the three part I am use to.
In my garage (as I suspect is the case with many gamers) is a load of old gaming stuff. Much of the good quality stuff has been sold on eBay, however in a box is one of my first terrain experiments for 6mm games.
I was once inspired by an article from Miniature Wargames issue #13 in which a gamer had described how he created some superb WWII terrain tiles. Taking his cue, and using 10mm cork tiles I created a series of 6mm terrain tiles with hills, hedges and roads.
Incorporating cork bark, some of the hills had rocky features. The “grass” was flocked and then painted (to keep it in place) and then drybrushed.
It worked well except for one major flaw!
Some of the cork tiles warped making it very unuseable. Eventually they were replaced with commercial flocked tiles.
