Yep. Even the GeoHex was trash … they were broken and scarred up pretty well. So I got them for cheap. The rest is a classic trashbash scratchbuild bonanza!

You are one trash talking dude.

You have been a busy beaver. ("resourceful rat" just doesn't have the same ring. As in 'rats that sift through the trash for resources'. I don't know, it made more sense to me when I typed it.)

Nice work, and a cheap way to fill a table!

@ Stryderg: Maybe "Resourceful Raccoon" would work? Aka a "Trash Panda"? (The latter which is incidentally the fan-selected mascot for the new minor league baseball team in Huntsville, Alabama).

Hah, I've never heard them called trash pandas, but that does seem to match the raccoons I've run across (resourceful or not).

I'm a fan! If they had baseball games with audiences here, I brought my RCTP shirt.

Given your demonstrated skills, that is very fitting! laugh

I need to get a Trash Panda shirt… (My family is from Florence, less than an hour from Huntsville.)

And by putting the door on one side and the greeblies on the top, I can rotate the building to be door open or closed.

That's just inspired.

I thought it was pretty slick too. I think it came to me when I was trying to figure out the piece and I dropped on the table where it rolled over a few times like a die.

The best bit is, with the door closed, you can put figures on the table that will be inside the building, then lift during the game to reveal what was there.

This is something every gamer should see any time you hear someone talk about how they can't get into wargaming because it's too expensive!

This is absolutely brilliant.

Love it!
