About the Project

With This Project I am working on building a Space Hulk themed Kill Team table. For which it will be based on the description of a Space hulk and the now out of print board game. Three things I feel it needs are; - Ship Parts (of differing nature) - Multiple Levels across the board - Rooms that could resemble one of the missions from the original space hulk board game.

Step by Step Tile Construction (WIP)

Step 1: Layout Tile using Pen. I used 80mm wide for the corridor with a 100mm between walls leaving a 10mm x 10mm chamfer at the base of each wall. These Corridors should be centres on each wall. However, it is not a given rule unless you want something roughly modular!

The keen eyed person will likely notice it differs slightly from the CAD image!

Step 2: Cut Out wall using the same material as your base in mine I used heavy card (chipboard in the US). Then these are glued into position using PVA or Hot Glue. note; the former requires perpendicular supports to keep it vertical.

In long runs I did add some additional support to the walls to ensure these remain somewhat plumb. The Insulation will push the others plumb when this is glued into place.

Step 3: Is to Add some insulation to pack out the space between the walls and the edge, and in addition support the upper levels.

Then the tile will be filled with some kind of filler.. Considering solely using Sculptamold but given these are card I am more worried I will have 6 tiles which are damaged…

(Note this is not done yet, and thus only forms a bit of a plan)

Step 4: Add Details, then Paint it in a suitable base colour. in My case I will use midnight blue, then wash with Black.

The idea to keep pushing forward on the build using cardboard and hot glue to build it fast. Once the basic structure is down the rest can then be formed to add strength and texture to the board.

This will look plain up until all boards are laid out. But to keep the momentum I need to keep posting and thinking about how I can take it to the next level!

I will publish some firmed out plans later in the project once I have an idea how it will be finished.

Starting Steps - Realising I have likely bit off more than I can chew!

I have started marking out some 12″ x 12″ Cardboard tiles with basic room layouts adding corridors and elevated sections. (See Photos)

The idea is currently to use a mission from the original space hulk game with two levels and attempt tie the layouts vaguely together. The intention being to allow line of sight down onto the lower levels giving a 3rd dimension to the gaming table during kill team scenarios.
