Scatter terrain Ainsty Castings Stacked Crates

 Whilst mulling over what to do next this week I got these quickly painted up for my next game of 7TV and of course crates can be useful in any setting really. 

Looking at my terrain a lot of it is neutral or brown or weathered like my rusty industrial set. So decided to go with brighter colours to lift the table a bit more. So went for 3 in camo green and 3 in an orange colour. I shall probably pick up another set or two of these as they are inexpensive for the money really and fill out the table. Also give some cover for those long bridges.

  3. You can never have too many crates. They are such an essential part of many, many games from fantasy to sci-fi.

    1. Cheers Ray. Going to get two more sets and will split the set the same. Maybe do another colour for the third set.

  8. Looks good! I got a bunch of the crates done by Uncle Mike and am going to make stacks similar to this. Wooden crates can be used in pretty much any time period without looking too out of place.

  13. Nice and simple! I bought some of those way back when I was at Salute and I still haven't gotten around to paint them. Which is a shame, as I was desperate to get some back then!
