We’re back with a look at the Storage Silo kit which is part of the Base-0 range from Systema Gaming – perfect for 28mm skirmish and wargames. We’ve previously reviewed the HQ Unit, the Habitat Units 1 & 2, and the Level 1 & 2 Walkways, so check those out for other parts of the Base-0 range.
Here is the Base-0 Storage Silo kit we ordered, it comes on 3 laser-cut MDF sheets each of which are around 3mm thick and about the size of a piece of A4 paper. This kit is priced at €16 (17.80)
As with the other kits in the Base-0 range, each of these laser-cut MDF sheets is labelled in the corner. Sheet G1 contains most of the outside structure of the Storage Silo, G2 holds most of the parts for the containers, and G3 contains the railings, ladder, and some smaller parts.
It’s simple and quick job to release the parts from the MDF sheets, all you need to do is cut the tiny tabs holding the parts in place using a craft/hobby knife. Here’s the pile we ended up with after freeing all the parts.
Picking out a few of the parts, you can see that this kit comes with quite a few shapes we’ve not seen in the other kits from this range. There’s a long ladder, valves, and engraved panels, plus some platforms, supports, and railings.
Following the assembly guides on the Systema Gaming site, we built the parts below as shown, we decided only to assemble it to this stage with glue so the we can easily store these separate parts. You can see we have a tower, 2 containers, a platform, and a large ladder.
Stacking the parts above together, we have the completed Storage Silo, a very cool terrain piece that will fit right into many modern and sci-fi tabletop battlefields.
There’s some great details on the Storage Silo kit including the tiny laser-cut valves on top of the containers and the etched Systema GS logos on the front.
Throwing in a few 28mm Warhammer 40k Space Marines for scale, you can see this will work well on the tabletop and could just be an interesting terrain piece or could even be an objective to fight over.
Another great addition to the Base-0 range, the Storage Silo is well designed and is simple to build. The assembled kit is a useful piece of terrain in skirmish and wargames, making a great firing platform, or even a resource that can act as an objective to fight over.
We look forward to combining this kit with the other Base-0 buildings we own to create a table-wide outpost for our games for Warhammer 40k, infinity, and Necromunda. Watch out for our next article in which we’ll pull all these kits together to create some awesome battlefields.
