New Warsenal Pillbox

Warsenal has just come out with a new budget-friendly bunker for your table top battles.

The USAriadna "Comanche" Colonial Defensive Post is a great-looking terrain piece with a fully playable interior, and retails for only $12 - or two for $20! A very inexpensive way to fill up a table quickly, especially for a terrain-intensive game like Infinity. And if you're hosting a tournament and need LOTS of terrain - it's a great deal.

The Comanche bunker reminds me of the Atlantic Wall emplacements, and it matches the style of the Warsenal Command Bunker.

They are super easy to assemble - each one took only about 15 minutes to put together.  I painted these four quickly in an afternoon.

I base-coated with VMC Pale Bluegrey, then shaded this with VMC Blue Green, VGC Turquoise, then P3 Coal Black. I then highlighted by re-applying some Pale Bluegrey, and finally white. Orange areas are GW Blazing Orange highlighted with Golden Yellow and shaded with Skorne Red (I applied that over a base of GW Macharius Solar Orange, since it covers in a single coat). Weathering was added with P3 Bloodstone and VMC Orange Brown, and paint chips applied with some blister foam and P3 Umbral Umber.

You'll notice that there are two different shapes - mirror images of each other. I am super happy with how good these look, especially for the price, and how quick they were to assemble and paint.  I can't wait to see what's next in this particular line.


  1. Hi Tom, big fan here. How do you get the panel lines to pop? are pin washing them?

  2. I don't know what pin-washing is - But I don't do anything special. I prime black, and airbrush over that; the panel lines do all the work themselves. I don't line them, wah them, nothing. I just don't spray it on so thick that it fills them in!

  3. Did you paint these fully assembled?

    Fantastic job!
