Retro Monday #2: a bunker fit for your 40K squad

Carrying on with what I hope will be a popular retrotastic addition to the blog, here is the second of our Retro Monday features: a bunker fit for your 40K squad. Last week we featured the teeny version of this, which houses just a Heavy Weapons team (or something with a similar footprint). This week, quake at the majesty of the large version, which could hold something like a platoon of Guardsmen, if you squeezed 'em in real tight.

From the same Tamiya 1/35 Mesozoic Creatures pack, two Parasaurolophi. Again, one as the box suggests, and t'other sliced up and rearranged. Note that I have avoided the use of flock and static grass. Grass didn't exist way back when.* Arguably, if one's hunting dinos on Challenger's Lost World, it should or could be present, but maybe just call me eccentric!

EDIT: A good friend has pulled me up on this. It turns out that although grass didn't become common until the Oligocene or Miocene, long after the dinosaurs, the earliest evidence for grass is in the form of Cretaceous coprolites from India. Our good blue friends below are from that very time, so they could indeed have espied the rare tuft of grass!

Tyrannosaurus princeps

'Cause, you see, a princeps (prince) is below a rex (king)? Guys? Guys? No? Aw, man.

Anyway, these are 1/35 scale infant tyrannosaurs from Tamiya's Mesozoic Creatures pack. I rather liked the colour-scheme of the tiger, so adapted it somewhat. No feathers on these old-style models, mind you. One is built out of the box, and the other has been cut up and repositioned so I don't have two identical models. For scale is a 28mm WWI BEF officer. Yes, 28mm and 1/35 are not the same, but one can happily posit that the 1/35 scale infants are merely a little less infantile in 28mm.

Retro Monday #1: Simpler Mini Bunkers for 40K

I fancy starting a new feature on this blog. In a word, I will unearth popular posts from the past, and shine a fresh spotlight on them. This first one is the most popular post I have created thus far in the whole blog. I was pleasantly surprised to find it on Pinterest some time ago. Without further ado, I present to you Simpler Mini Bunkers for 40K.
