Default District terra wip

So it's been probably years since I have put my face on these forums and it's probably time I get back to where it all started...

I've had some very hectic tournaments in the last few years, focusing primarily on CSM but moved the start of 2016 to the loyalist and superior codex of SPACE MARINES!

I've gone through a full circle event realising that as much as I do love Death Guard, they were not heavy on the chaos iconography like other chaos marines were so I went back and built a full army of loyalist kits with the preheresy scheme with a few worn out models but mostly basic painting on them.

I ran with this on the CSM codex for a good two years, heavily investing in vindicators, land raider and terminators to get my work done and I performed well most games but then the codex creep came...

Experiments with 4 Maulerfiends, Cypher in Spawn stars, and all the like left me feeling let down by the basic elements of the army and so the Emperors guiding light set me free.

The leap into using preheresy models came almost 2 years ago because of their rugged and tough appearance plus being expensive they were not seen often at tournaments in this area so I took to it quickly and they suited my painting style - fast and washy!

Within months I had made 50 marines and a few tanks as well as ordered 15 odd terminators, which is now in the 50 mark thanks to BAC and BOP box sets.

My shift in the hobby though turned towards the hobby, where I found solace those earlier years when things in life just seemed tough, warhammer and particularly the building of terrain gave me a reason to be excited for tomorrow.

I put most of my stuff on here, been using it as a good creative release and have just in the last month moved in to a much bigger home where I can finally get some real work done and all those half finished projects can go to rest.











Just to make sure there is enough spam in the post.

I hope to reconnect again with those of you I may have lost, and make new friends along the way!!!

Introduce yourself either here or FB.

Looking forward to a good reunion.

Thanks! I got a lot to put here. I wish I kept a blog this whole time.

I have a small update.

I received a commission after selling some terrain to a customer and he had a close friend who was interested and got on to me straight away about creating a dwarf inspired set but changed his mind (thankfully before production began) to a snowed over industrial set and I fell in love and ran with the concept. I drew up heaps of sketches and saved picture after picture of reference for use and have started construction after a long and difficult move to a new home.

This building would be just for repairs and gearing up of the vehicles or machinery of war. The buildings are 6x12" with cuts down the middle so they can be split apart to cover wider areas or put together to form a cluster of industry.


A prep station with fuel tanks and the needed tools of war. The machine must grind on!


Because he was so keen and I had these lying around, I made customer objectives also for the set. :D


More updates soon! I am really keen on this project as a whole. Painting will be so much fun. I have a lot of ideas.

Welcome back! It looks like the terrain is coming along smartly. And congrats on starting a cottage industry. =)

Cottage industry? Not sure what you mean by that ha. But thanks regardless.

I could, the shipping would be killer though I do this because I love it more than any other part of the hobby. I'm horrid at the game!

So I have some extra stuff to show for this set.



I have begun putting the texture paint around. It is good for hiding gaps in walls and

I also use it for roughing up floors and walls to create texture where there isn't any.







The devil is in the details with this one. I hope to really create something with a story for this terrain. An overrun facility with a hint of Genestealer Cult.

Look for the next addition!

Hey, a cottage industry is defined simply as, "a business or manufacturing activity carried on in a person's home." Historically, this was wood working, furniture making, weaving, embroidery, etc.; this was a supplemental form of production following the main income for a household, which was usually farming.

What kind of texture paint are you using?

I would also suggest using spackle or wall and joint compound to add a layer of texture to the foam core walls, then use white artists gesso to seal it and make it more rigid.

Happy terraforming!

Ah that makes sense. I get it. I am using texture paint from Bunnings (a big hardware chain in AUS). I will be using it to slightly texture the walls and bring rust and grime to gear joints and machinery also. Works a treat.

Have another small update.


A crate of goods for the front line/guerrilla army (ironically the genestealers)





And the second building taking shape. This one I wanted as a sort of small refueling station/oils/change that kind of thing. Some minor work to be done but coming along well!

Small update.

I recently got hold of a LOT of scrap and cut off pieces from a friend and I wasn't quite sure what to do with them at first until I realised how easily I could make practically anything given the inspiration.


I made this! A printer it will work as, for the GSC in this sector. Having captured the printer long ago they pumped out propaganda and started turning the masses against their own government.


A corner of one of the buildings I've made. This pipe or canister, whatever it may be has ruptured and genestealer Jim has found a comfy spot to rest his genestealer head.

The body underneath has a Tyranid adrenal gland on the back of it's head, a form of aggressive psych-domination through parasites but the victim didn't live through his transformation.

The printer room currently looks like this.


I've added some pieces to the edges of the room to give it more of a lived in feel.


And the three that I've currently got working on. The blue stuff is texture paint which is invaluable!
