Grav Tank Bases

March 23, 2008

After years of simply putting grav tanks flat on the table, I decided to create some simple bases that slightly lift the vehicle off the ground, giving it the proper look of skimming the surface of the battlefield. My solution involves pennies, a Dremel, and very short pieces of wire. Basically, drill a hole in a penny, insert a small piece of wire, paint, flock, and repeat. I think the result is preferable to simply resting the tanks on the table. They are hover tanks. They should hover.
