Always eat your leftovers

After getting the chance to hang out with Lathan (AKA Burn in Designs), I learned how many extra pieces come with the kits that he creates.  Not only does he include optional pieces, but there are numerous "punch outs" that seem to always be destined for the garbage.

However, I saw those, and saw endless terrain and basing opportunities!

I had a bunch of extra shutters, which spoke vents or machinery to me right away.

So, I grabbed some pieces, some matboard and a bit of green stuff and made some Iron Horse charging stations for Wild West Exodus.

I tried to scale them to the Interceptor... held in place by the rear brace.

Don't want it taking off during recharging!!

A touch of primer disguises the true nature of the pieces already!

Ready for painting!!!

I figured I would paint them up like the versions that I saw in the main rulebook.  Also, I wanted to see how the wood would accept paint, as well as glazes.

With the initial layers done, Secret Weapon washes for the win!

A few quick glazes...

Still about an hour or two left to go on these, but they are not too shabby for now!
