Post Apocalypse Rusted Storage Tank War Game Terrain 25 - 28 mm

It has been a long time since the world changed. The desolate post apocalyptic landscape is filled with the decaying remnants of the earlier world.

This terrain piece represents a heavily rusted storage tank.

Could it possibly contain some of the rare gasoline or even life-giving water? Whatever the contents, it is sure to attract the attention of survivors scavenging possible resources.

The piece is designed for 25-28 mm scale and  stands about 5 inches (128 mm) tall. The base measures approximately 4-1/4 x 4-1/4 inches (110 x 110 mm).

It would look great in any industrial setting, military base or city ruins. This terrain piece would be at home in many science fiction, post apocalypse, and pulp war games including Warhammer 40K™ and Warmachine™.

Arcane Magical Summoning Stones War Game Terrain Scenery

Mysterious arcane symbols are carved into the face of these ancient, weathered stone monoliths. The stones can appear anywhere: from remote uncharted island coasts to dark dense jungles to arid desert wastelands to alien planet vistas.

But to what purpose? Perhaps they simply territorial boundary markers. Or maybe their purpose is much more sinister. Do they act as a magical nexus point for summoning dark creatures from beyond our universe? Possibly sacrificial stones for the worshipers of ancient eldar gods?

Terrain stones like these can be used in all manor of role-playing and table top miniature war games. They can find a place in games as divergent as Dungeons & Dragons™, Call of Cthulhu™, Warhammer 40K™, just to name a few.

These small scenery pieces can be used as objective markers for victory points or simply to enhance your game board terrain. Scaled for 20 to 30 mm miniature figures.

Alien Plants Flora for 25mm Science Fiction Miniatures Games

Encountering the unexpected is one aspect of miniature war games and role-playing games that adds to the fun. Small terrain pieces can fill the need.

Here is a selection of odd alien flora to add to the sense of the unknown in your games. These plants can be "seeded" in amongst your normal 25mm terrain to give the game table some new color.

As such they can be used as victory objective markers or perhaps as a surprise encounter.  Maybe some are even intelligent and can provide strange new interactions with your players!

Plants can be used in many game genres.  They need not be limited to science fiction games where characters are exploring a newly-discovered world. In horror and pulp games, they can be an invading alien species (as in The Day of the Triffids). And in fantasy games, these plants can be the result of dark magic encroaching into the characters' world.

Whatever the mythos, strange new flora can add to the fun.

Mad Science Transporter Dimensional Gate 25-28 mm Science Fiction Scenery

Switches are thrown; equipment is activated.  Ethereal sparks leap about the circular portal!  A loud humming sound quickly rises in pitch, passing into the supersonic ranges above normal human capacity.  The air inside the gateway seems to split apart, revealing strange new colors as the test subject steps into the mechanism.

So, what have the mad scientists in our research and development section come up with this time?  It could be a simple matter transporter.  Or perhaps an inter-dimensional portal opening into new weird space.

This apparatus could be found in any experimental laboratory.  Or perhaps it's a bit of alien technology being reversed engineered.

This scenery piece is scaled for 25 to 28 mm miniature figures.  It can be used in most science fiction war games such as Warhammer 40K™.  Or it could be a part of a crazed scientist's efforts to open a bridge for the Lesser Gods in Call of Cthulhu™ or other horror role-playing games.
