Destroyed Mech Markers for Mech Attack
Each time that the club has gotten out our big mechs for a game of Mech Attack in 28mm, we have discussed leaving destroyed mechs on the board or making markers to represent the wreckage. I made these basic wreck markers using the same technique as the plaster wrecked cars I made some time ago.
Each one is molded from a different piece of one of my mechs, so you might be able to recognize each piece's origins in our old battle reports. After making the plaster reproduction, I attached each one to an old CD and added textured modeling paste, with perhaps some insulation foam or rocks as needed. The painting is very quick and dirty, with just base brown and green colors, a few details in copper or gray, a dry brush matching the ground ocher color, and an overall glop of dark umber ink.
They are very simple and the results are rough, but I think they will suffice as a piece on the table to indicate a wrecked mech, piece of terrain, or objective marker.
