Mad Science Laboratory Equipment for Halloween

In the spirit of the Halloween season, here are a couple of 25 to 28 mm scale scenery pieces for equipment to put in any mad scientist's laboratory.

The first is a power generator with a primary coil and a double bank of levered controls.  The base is about 4 inches (102 mm) wide.

The second could be a condensor unit. It stands about 3 inches (75 mm) tall.

These terrain pieces can add a bit of color to science fiction, horror or pulp role-playing games like Call of Cthulhu™ or miniatures war games including HorrorClix™.

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.
