The bits box

2011-06-13 Khaiell

Usually after assembling models, particularly plastic ones, we are left with a handful of spare parts. Don't get rid of them as they may one day become a glorious addition to a new terrain piece or converted model

It is worthwhile to collect not only bits from miniatures but also characterful "junk" such as oddly-shaped containers, electronic equipment parts and anything else that has a potential to become a modelling project.

PS: Now in the 2016 the bits box is actually a collection of several carton boxes and small plastic containers with dividers to keep various types of small bits apart. You don't want your dwarven heads mixed up with Space Marine shoulderpads.

Originally designed to fill gaps in failed finecast miniatures it does a really bad job at that. However it works great for adding texture to models and fixing problems with the "Chinese import" quality Games Workshop terrain

Finding a nice piece of rock is everything you need to build a spectacular and useful terrain piece, just ready for the Storm of Magic Warhammer supplement

Important for breaking open landscape giving non-mounted troops some hope. Bear in mind that Roman legions were able to set up walls overnight and defeated the Gauls "with a pick not with a sword"
