The Great 40k Terrain Challenge 2: Fuel Reserve

We made the deadline for the first piece. This is our next project. The deadline will be Sunday, November 5; two weekends and the days in between with a few more since we’re posting this two days early. Hopefully we’ll get someone else from the club to join in. Our next task:

Fuel Reserve. Page 105 of 6th edition. 
Armored Fuel Barrels (or storage tanks) can prove handy shelter-right up until the point they go BOOM!

If a model is in cover behind a fuel reserve, it has a 5+ cover save. However, each time a model successfully makes this cover save, immediately roll a D6. On a roll of 1, the barrel (or tank) explodes. etc.

Games-Workshop fuel dump. It’s been out of production for quite a while but you can find them on ebay sometimes.  Picture from DakkaDakka.

Here are some materials I’ll be using:


We’ll see how this one goes.

Soda cans are also easy to use if you feel like doing a structure.

very easy to make. MDF base, two cans, add a card panel, add some piping, paint then add the crochet mesh.

Spent the week dry fitting pieces and this is what we came up with. We’ll start priming today.

Kudos to Dave, one of the newest members of our group, for getting his project done on time. I got sidetracked on a number of other gaming projects and let this one slip to the side.


A very worthy effort. Good to see a member add a new piece to his terrain board!


Another view.

I’ll have to get mine done this weekend. But wait til you see what I’ve been working on!

Okay, here it is painted with base coats. I made a few changes. This is designed to go against a table edge.


Ready to Paint and Flock.

Update Saturday, February 17, 2018

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything to the blog. Playing and building terrain takes up more of my precious time. This was a fun build. I’ve meant to put one of these together for quite a while. (And I finished it quite a while ago.) I’ll be putting up a few new and completed pieces in the coming weeks.
