    So me and my gaming group have just started getting in to 40K again with the new “kill team” rules, and we need some terrain for the gaming table.

    I was looking around on the internet for inspiration for what to make. I got a lot of inspiration from Mel “the terrain tutor” on youtube, and I really recommend his channel!

    I started planning the terrain be measuring up my idees on my foamboard that I would use as base.

    I got a lot of help by using Mel’s turtoral on “how to make foamboard houses” and by using green stuff worlds “textured Rolling Pins”. I used air drying clay to make the brick floor.

    For the crater i used cork and molding paste.

    next up is building the walls and gate.

    If this building-blog interests some of you guys out there, then please leave a message, that this will motivate me to finish the project.:)

    more will come with time

    FINISH IT…Obscure Mortal Combat reference! Off to a great start! Don’t lose momentum! Pace yourself! OK… I’m done…keep us posted with your progress…For inspiration I could post my pile of good terrain intentions…My wife calls it the Isle of misshapen things…You can recognize a dozen household items used in inappropriate fashion to build terrain…But left unfinished.

    I’m really curious to see how that air dry clay paints up. Looking cool.

    Thanks @snowdog and @inu53 for the motivational words. :D

    The project is getting along. This is my plan for the whole project.
    Yeah I know, it’s not a pretty sketche :)

    This is my biggest terrain project I have done. And I have learned alot so fare. I tried to basic paint it, just to get an idea of what it will look like when it is done. Yeah I know, double work, couldn’t wait. :)

    The next thing I will be doing is the gate and the wall’s.

    More is coming :)

    Those sketches have the 40k vibe down, I’m thinking your group is gonna be feeling pretty lucky to play on that piece.

    Good job @reaperfcrew ! I should really finish the ones I started so long ago…

  • Avatar Image wispa16p said 2 months, 3 weeks ago:

    Looking good so far. Stick with it.

  • Avatar Image reaperfcrew73p said 2 months, 3 weeks ago:

    thanks @inu53 @happyhowler @wispa for the supporting comments.:D

    The project is moving along. I just finish the outer part of the model. It took a couple of evenings to cut the foam for the building details. But I think it ended OK. I have learned a lot so fare, with working with foam. And once I apply the filler I think it will start looking good.

    Next I will begin doing the foam for the inner part of the building. :D
