X Wing Miniatures: Ghost pics from Last Game

My Ghost Cake Topper finally saw action as a Leebo/Chewie YT 2400 with an accompanying K Wing loaded with ordnance against a Decimator picket.

The info drop for FFG's actual Ghost looks like it is going to be really good and I am sure it will be a beast on the board. Still, this stand in looked cool right now and my son felt like it was a real Rebels game, which we both enjoyed. The YT is so damn fast I am not sure I will be able to see FFG's Ghost the same way again...

Warhammer 40K: Holographic Tactical Display

Here is a kit bashed holographic tactical display for my Valhallan HQ. I don’t think this makes sense representing anything from the Astra Militarum codex but I suppose it could be an objective? 

Here is a before shot.

I used some Necromunda bulkheads cut and trimmed for the legs, a Mighty Empires 40K tile and a Forge World bomber cockpit control console from my buddy Lovell’s kit that his son accidentally set fire. I was able to saw the controls from the melted cockpit piece and trim it back into shape. The orderly is an old Basilisk crewman, I think.

Not a lot of work but it creates good atmosphere for the game and so, worth it!

Here are some other shots.
