X-men Tearing up a Sentinel in Genosha!

A while back a fried (Ross) said h had seen some Sentinel parts on ebay that might make good terrain for X-men games.
I looked them up and they were Build a Figure parts from Marvel Legends action figures. But then something else caught my eye. Broken Sentinels that were bases / stands for earlier Legends figures.

I raided ebay and ML groups on Facebook and tracked down a load.

The first one of arrive was the foot. While it may look huge, my favourite X-Men era was the 90s (like the picture at the top) and the Sentinels back then were huge.

Out of all the parts, the right hands is probably the largest and most inpressive. I had to pull the wall stand off the back to make it sit flat, but its rally good for playing on, over and giving cover.

The head seems perfect for 90s Sentnels. On the Onsalught covers above, Rouge is about the same size as a faceplate. Can just seem Colossus throwing this at the Brotherhood!

The final couple of parts were smaller but work as good filler terrain. The Torso is over normal head height so blocks LoS nicely. The left had is covered in ice so I will probably repaint that to look like rocks to match the rest.

A full body worth of parts take up a decent amount of a 3x3 board.

Adding these to my usual 'to hand' terrain gives a nice Genosha board that plays really well.

I may have gone a little OTT though as there are about 5 more parts on the way for a full Sentnel graveyard. Pics of that when they arrive.

What do you think of them?
What will you be using to theme your X-men boards?
