Warhammer 40k Mini Battlezone

Warhammer 40K Mini Battlezone – Space Marines vs Tyranids

 

The battle between the Space Marines and Tyranids is coming, and will be like nothing ever seen.

A custom terrain platform with battle sounds, LED lighting, miniature automation and more. All this action will be controlled by one artificial brain, the mighty Arduino microcontroller.

 

The purpose of the Warhammer 40K Battlezone is to create a small battle scenario between the Space Marine Army and the Tyranids. The Battlezone story line is that the Space Marines have crash landed and are scrambling to establish communication to call for help but as they are doing so, as band of Tyranids ambushes them and now the fight is on. The Battlezone will include custom sounds, motion and light which will be controlled by an Arduino microcontroller.

 

Current To Do List:
  • Paint spaceship wreckage – 75% complete
  • Paint Space Marine troops – 90% complete
  • Paint Tyranids – 50% complete
