Are the new Armored Containers Worth it? Come see the new terrain kit up close and personal in today’s first look review!
The new Armored containers are finally here, and to be honest even for $50 this is a neat little kit. Overall you get three of the same sprue, with the containers and the barrels needing to be assembled.
From the looks of it, THIS is the sweet multi-part injection plastic we’ve all be used to for years, and not the “less detailed “material that we saw in last week’s review. However, it’s curious that this box set says that the contents were made in China, just like GW’s bases.
That aside, I love the heaps of detail on this kit, from interior “Game Boy” keypads to the optional eagle buttresses on the outside, there is load of ways to customize this kit to suit your needs.
Another plus is the peg in slot system for attaching or removing the optional stormbolters on the top, because let’s fact it each crate’s machine spirit demands protection!
Following along those same likes you could craft a peg to slot into the same hole so that you could stack the containers modularly and such for switching up the terrain even more. Perhaps cooler is that fact you can fit both 25 and 32mm bases inside the crates as well, Space hulk corridor conversions anyone?
Overall I give this new set 4.5 meows out of 5!
The perfect purchase for anyone looking to put some variety on to their Warhammer 40,000 gaming table, the Munitorum Armoured Containers set is a versatile, easy to assemble collection of scenery pieces. Three Armoured Containers, nine Promethium Barrels and twelve Supply Crates are included, which can be freely stacked and arranged in any way you please – use them as cover, break lines of sight, add chokepoints and strategic interest to your games of Warhammer 40,000!
Special Rules are included in the box: take cover behind Promethium Barrels but beware their explosive tendencies, and search Armoured Containers (which can be equipped with storm bolters…) for potentially game-changing items.
