thanks! I work in wholesale for an electrical company so I get to see a lot of really cool stuff and buy it at good prices for my terrain. These are clipsal mountings for 25mm conduit and I bought them a long time ago because I knew one day they'd be useful for just a day like this!

A bit of a throwback on this one.

I made this piece, planned it for PAX2015 that my gaming group ran to show off 40k to new and old players and we needed a story and some pazzaz to it all.

This was the fated warpgate on the planet Deathguard legions and Imperial Fists faced off on.

The crystal at the centre between the wraithlords is the objective, whoever holds it wins at the end of the game.

But then the eldar arrive...

I had bought a Farseer, a Fire Prism, and 2 squads of Wraithguard that pop out to protect their web world.

Nice done! How does that crystal look when lights out?

Good to be green

That's an amazing piece of terrain, but the star field paint job on the wraithguard carapace is stunning.

Thank you!!!! I spent soooo much time on the faces trying to get them just right. It was some of my earliest airbrush experience so it was difficult to get the airbrush to play along.

I don't have any photos or anything at the moment but I may try and scrape together something next time I'm out there.

So we have got the snow down on some parts and it's looking crisp.

I'll let the photos do the talking.

Some of the buildings put together now. The posters are looking great on the walls and floors. I'm trying to make it look as though these were just as much rubbish as they were helpful.



There is still weathering and plenty more to do. I try and put a lot of depth into washes on the finished pieces because the mix of tones really appeals to me.


The machine shop is by far my favourite part of this. Down on the level of the models this looks like it was a once busy factory churning out weapons and gadgets for the cults.


An overall view of the pieces that were made for this set. A lot has gone into this in terms of sweat and blood and just hard work. I am so happy and it's not even finished!

A few shots of the factory again to get this started.

We are calling this bad boy done!!!!!!!



And set up as a complete board with all the smaller pieces.




The pipe section is a little hard to see but I had fun with it in that it actually comes apart in a lot of places for you to build in a series of different ways.

A cold marine stares through the ruined walls of the factory looking for targets.

I didn't quite like the board that I had for the terrain so with a couple of cans of spraypaint I flipped over the icy blue and turned it into a winter-scape.



AS you can see it adds a lot of depth to the finished product.

Wrecked tanks lie dormant after battle in this frozen landscape.

Also made a forklift for the warehouse as a last pieces to tie it in.

This kit was available from miniaturescenery.com and I also bought the girders you see in the warehouse from them.



Subtle blue washes around the engine components didn't come out as much as anticipated but I'm happy regardless with this entire set.

The board is much better. While I get the frozen icy effect you were going for, it looked more like something to play naval games on. The new paint job suits the terrain much more.

Yeah the board was more to mimic a frozen lake than an actual snowy landscape so it needed to change.




And all packed up! two big boxes full of goodness.

For more pictures I have a facebook set up under https://www.facebook.com/DistrictTerra/ and we appreciate all feedback, all comments and even criticisms of our work. Would

love to hear from you there.
