|UNSC Command figure by GZG|
"Good morning ladies, welcome to orienteering on your new home, the planet Brown. Now listen up, we have a lot to cover!"
"You will notice that all the terrain on this new world is based on CD's.. That's right, ordinary CD's. Why you ask? Because, they are uniform in shape, made of a sturdy plastic, a good size for a 15mm scale terrain feature. Most of all, they are cheap or free. Just tape over the hole in the middle and you are good to go soldier."
|GZG colony shacks and container|
"Here are some metal cast shacks from GZG. Also note the large metal container. These products are packed with detail and assemble fairly easily with superglue. Mounting them on a CD makes them easy to deploy and to store... Although they are damn heavy so 2 CDs glued together were needed to stop the base flexing. Spin the CD for a different battlefield orientation. The colors are bright so they are not boring, but follow a limited palette so they all go together well."
|More colony shacks and an air vent|
"You will see these shacks are painted in less bright colors but have a lot of beat-up exposed metal. Apart from some Lego tires, this base is more open for variety, or loose object placement."
|Aquarium plants and rocks|
|Different Aquarium plants and rocks|
"These are new improved forest sections. Hot glue was used to fix the flexible plastic plants to the CDs. The ugly transparent look was defeated by using Citadel Foundation paint mixed 50/50 with PVA, then heavily stippled onto the plants. The PVA stops the paint flaking off. That's right, it's fine! Yes there is another one, but they look basically the same."
