Concrete Buildings help
Ok, so I'm about to have a crack at making my first bit of decent scenery for 40K. I want to make a ruined building, I've made all my rough plans and I was about to start sourcing all of my materials when I got a bit stuck. What do I use for the walls/floor?
I'm guessing that this may sound like a stupidly rookie thing to say but as I mentioned, first time attempting this. Also though, I'm not a complete idiot and I know a little bit about some of the materials I've seen suggested so far. I just wanted to get a bit of a discussion out of it, rather than trying to dredge the internet looking for someone to say what I want them to say.
At the moment I'm leaning towards foamboard. I've seen ceiling tiles can look really good, but they do react pretty extremely if any aerosols or plastic glue gets onto them (I was wondering if a coat of paint would be enough to protect it from that), also though... its quite brittle and I dont want to make a really nice bit of scenery that just snaps to bits if someone looks at it funny. I've considered hardboard as its pretty structurally sound and would make for a decent lasting piece of scenery, but I was concerned about it warping if something spilled on it, or even just too much change in the atmosphere. I've had similar concernes about using cardboard.
What have other people been using, and what did they find afterwards? did it look how you hoped, is it more durable than you expected or did it just explode as soon as you picked it up? I'd appreciate any input I can get on this please as I apparently suck at finding my answers manually or through 'search' functions.
