Daemonaut, Cylinders, Tower and Container

I've been putting off taking pics of all this because I kept telling myself "we need more figures!" But terrain stuff is important too, I finally convinced myself.

First up, a Reaper Chronoscope figure conversion. I picked up the astronaut figure specifically for this conversion because it just seemed like a no-brainer. Months later I finally snipped off the human head and added the demon skull (I think it's from Reaper too) and the Daemonaut was born!

 The base is laser-cut that I picked up from GenCon,sorry I can't recall the company. Below, the minismith and Mr. Brown confront the Daemonaut to discover its intentions...

 The bigger cylinder containers are the anti-moisture tubs from pill bottles. I've been collecting them for years and finally decided it was time to put them together for some blocking terrain. I a;so added a couple of metal "spring" looking beads and (below) some old paintbrush tip protectors as stacked pipes.

 These cylinders were too cool to throw away- they came from a small shelving kit to protect the ends of the legs. I glued 2 together to create these larger containers with the pallet sort of edges for some forklift device to more easily grab them.

 Not-Chiana and some friends use the cylinder containers for cover...

I got a few of these plastic popcorn tubs for next to nothing with the express idea of using them as taller buildings. But the scalloped top presented a bit of a chore to cut off, so I've only done up one so far. I've got a plan for the next one to have strips of plasticard glued over the scallop part to avoid all that trimming.

I had to get another Reaper Bones cargo container. This time I painted directly onto it instead of priming like on my Kickstarter one. It took the paint okay, we'll see how ell they both stand up to gaming.
