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.
