Munitorum Armoured Containers

Munitorum Armoured Containers

Got a box of the Battlezone: Manufactorum – Munitorum Armoured Containers. I did like these when they came out, but had never got around to buying a box.

The perfect purchase for anyone looking to put some variety on to their Warhammer 40,000 gaming table, the Munitorum Armoured Containers set is a versatile, easy to assemble collection of scenery pieces. They can be freely stacked and arranged in any way you please – use them as cover, break lines of sight, and to add chokepoints and strategic interest to your games of Warhammer 40,000!

In the box you get three identical sprues. Each sprue allows you to build a container, three oil cans and four ammo boxes.

The models are quite simple, so should go together quite easily.

I built each sprue as I got it out the box.

I did think initially that the containers would be easy to build, but as the doors don’t add to the structural integrity of the model, I did for two of them press too hard when gluing the parts that they fell apart. Eventually I did get them together. Each container comes with two bolters for gluing on top. I did think it would have been nice to have an alternative choice so you didn’t need to arm all the containers.

The oil barrels go together really easily and the crates are a single casting with nothing to glue.

I gave the containers and other parts a white undercoat using a Corax White spray.

I also undercoated the crates and barrels.

I then started thinking about what colour I would paint them. The box cover art shows one red, one green and one black. Using the colours on my workbench, so I painted two of the containers with Army Green Spray from the Army Painter range.

The third I used Mechanicus Standard Grey Spray.

I also photographed them upside down.

Here are the three containers.

As for the barrels I did them in Zandri Dust. I also did some of the crates with the spray as well.

As for the other crates I used the Army Green Spray from the Army Painter range.
