I recently ended up with a stack of unwanted hexagonal bases from the Reaper CAV Kickstarter. Why all the tanks I ordered came with all these bases, I don’t know, but they did. I was trying to figure out what to do with them. As I was holding a couple together contemplating their potential, I hit upon this idea
Six of these bases come in a blister pack from Reaper. They are textured on the top and have some support structures on the underside.
So, I glued six of them together with E-6000, sprayed them black, and then dry brushed them with a couple shades of gray and white. I also printed some labels in alien symbols to mark the boxes. I think the effect is pretty good, and they will be great in the cargo hold of the space ship I plan to build for 28mm science fiction Combat Patrol games.
