40ft Shipping Container 28mm scale Terrain


SKU: N/A Categories: , Tags: , , , , , , ,


Our 40ft Shipping Container 28mm scale terrain is a very basic kit designed to offer two benefits, quick 6 part assembly and solid line of sight blocking terrain. Its hard to imagine a more ubiquitous object than the shipping container. They are littered all over the planet and other planets too most likely. Its versatile and at home in almost every miniatures game system and terrain theme. A breeze to assemble as all the parts have tabs to  joins together so they only go together one way. Check out our bulk kits for a discount if you are interested in packing a table with fast easy terrain. In just 15 minutes, with assembly time included, you can almost hide a tank behind a wonderfully painted 40ft Shipping Container.

Based off the standard Conex blue prints for a 40ft container done in scale based off of a 6ft person being approx 30mm tall. We did our best to make them realistically scaled. There is a photo that gives the measurements on the website, The exact measurements are 200mm x 42mm x 40mm. The Ribbing is actually etched into the MDF with the laser, which accounts for the extra cost!

We have deals on buying in bulk so make sure you choose the correct amount of desired containers from the tab above. After all who doesn’t want to fight through a shipyard.

We also offer a pre-painted option on these as well but they are very limited so if you are interested please contact us directly at info@ironheartartisans.com , the containers are $12 each pre-painted, they just need to be glued and assembled.


The laser etched detail is such that light gradients of thinned paint over primed surfaces are almost all that is needed to bring this terrain kit to life. We have added enough depth on the etch of the corrugation so that it does have a actual 3 dimensional factor to it instead of just lined in details. All of out example containers were quickly rattle canned with a highlight and a shadow then sponged with rust colors or silvers. For some added fun get out a airbrush and let your miniature tagger spirit flow.

The measurements in the image are approximate, exact measurements are 200mm x 40mm by 42mm tall

This kit is made in the USA by Ironheart Artisans from laser cut 2.5mm MDF and is a multi-part kit that will require assembly. The parts come completely cut and are NOT attached to a sheet that need to be punched out.
