You’ve all seen the picture of the battle for the Golden Arches in our pictures of the day? That piece was a one-of-a-kind artwork made by Peter Carlson at gameswithoutrules. I’m a huge fan, and I think really cool terrain pieces are one way to add something special to your battles. Peter also does unique objective markers, and builds amazing large terrain pieces (for those at BoLSCon, he did the trenches and mountains for the Narrative tables).
Keep in mind that none of these items are done in batches; each item is a unique piece of art that Peter handmakes, so you’re getting something special.
Another one of my favorite vendors is Battlefoam. Romeo spends a lot of time coming up with all the specialty trays to have everything you need. I carry about 8000 points of Imperial Guard, Daemonhunters, and Chaos Space Marines in my 1520, and I have room to add even more if I choose. Before I loaded those into the 1520 I used 3 smaller soft cases and 3 hard cases for the same forces. Besides the great capacity for miniatures, the Battlefoam cases have great designs for holding books, army lists, tapes and dice.
~Point your aunt to one of these sites for your Christmas wish list; she may not buy you Daemonettes, but how can she turn down art or a suitcase?
