Hello Readers, so today I have an alternative to the great GW Munitorum Armoured Containers
scenery. These are more along the lines of the FW containers that FW keep adorning their terrain pieces with, however slightly larger than the GW ones and not as detailed or cannot be opened. But, if like me you want LOS blocking scenery - then these are ideal!
Here is the Imperial Space Marine for size comparison.
See, these are the big brother of the Container scenery, a Land Raider can hide behind these easily.

As you can see in the Battle Bunnies image above, the GW containers barely cover the Tech Priest, and a Marine can stand up inside, but no more.
These alternative scenery metal boxes can almost fit a Rhino inside, the hatch looks a little too small but the size overall easily hides a Rhino - an a disembarked squad for good measure.
And, for you Imperial Knight barons, yes, two stacked can easily hide your Knights! Where are these from you ask? They are from the European Company Gamemat.eu
the same as the Battle Mat shown. Check out the site. I pre-ordered these ages ago before GW was producing their versions and I didn't know GameMat were doing a line in pre-painted scenery too. Lots of industrial buildings and they look good basically painted, ready to add the details and transfers to taste.
Speaking of the Game Mats, I have also purchased bags for both the mats I bought. £5 each. They deliver to UK and Europe and the US. Hopefully you found the review of the above useful and a possible alternative for your tables.
