Or for making fences?

Anyway, I just came across these by accident. If not useful for 15mm, then surely for 28mm, right?



So, what do you think? A good find?

PS. Check out this other type:

Depending on shipping bought in bulk a decent deal. Could be used for building industrial type walk ways.

Didn't you need a fence for a Dino proof bunker at one point Dan? They resemble the fence in Terra Nova:


That last grid you found the auction for looks like it would make for great (grate!) 6mm building facades. Would save a lot of trouble making windows.

Cages for my gorillas. Neat.

You mean these?

On the Necromunda FB groups, they are using Fish Tank Undergravel Filters for walkways.

Did they look like these?

How do you find all these cool things? You must never function inside the box. grin


cloudcaptain19 Mar 2018 8:20 a.m. PST

Yep…those. Just paint a block blue and apply that as a facade.

Those aquarium gravel things look handy for high tech wharf stuff too.

What about some armour for vehicles the anti RPG armour

CAPTAIN BEEFHEART19 Mar 2018 3:15 p.m. PST

Depends on what they are made of. Do they bend? What glue/paint will they take? …But yes, a million uses.

Like cloudcaptain suggested, put a backing behind them, like a patterned styrene sheet, they could be potentially external-structure building walls in 6mm, modern or Brutalist in nature. Great find CC!!!

I am not presently in need of confinement.

Oh. For the miniatures. Yes, I expect those would hold a banth until he broke out at an inconvenient moment. (Well, there's no point in putting a dangerous animal in your game if he's going to stay caged, is there?)

Cacique Caribe19 Mar 2018 6:55 p.m. PST


You are a sage.





haywire21 Mar 2018 7:58 a.m. PST

They were these actually. Which are actually 4 slotted together.



Cacique Caribe21 Mar 2018 3:46 p.m. PST

Whoa! If I was still doing 28mm, I think I'd be all over those.
