After a long hiatus we are back with more!

Had been sketching stuff out for a little while in prep for a crashed space hulk board.

Construction has been a difficult issue. Making sure the foamcard is cut to the right angles so it can slide down the angled walls of the space hulk.

The customer had this hex piece of foam laying about as he wanted his army to be able to connect with other display boards down the road.


Details inside the rear. From the start I wanted this to be a very open piece so there is more room for the customer to keep his models. It adds another dimension when you come around the side and see a unit of scouts hiding out behind the walls of the hulk.


The whole thing came together really fast once I had the floors erected. trying to get crisp straight edges has always been difficult for me with the tools I have but I was really happy with the flush top of this.

Details on the internal floors. Lots of fun widgets and mechanisms purchased from a mate of mine who does laser cutting @ miniaturescenery.com

The door details were really fun to try and find pieces that would form a mechanism to close and open the doors.


I have filled the bottom up with expanding foam so give the impression of wind swept sands into the cavity below the crashed ship.


I've been told that Range https://www.therange.co.uk/ in the UK has the foamboard as well as Hobbycraft.

The range has some great stuff. Hobbycraft and the range and screwfix are my go to places for terrain bits.


Dolls house?? Looks like a bombed out noble house to me!
Plastic radiator pipe?? Looks like toxic sump outlet!


Looks good. The use of straws is great; those things are soooo useful!
Making it on a slant looks complicated. Most of the boards I've done are flat, with a piece of scenery stuck to it; like a gun battery or other GW terrain.


Are you painting this up as well?

I was really apprehensive about using straws as they are not exactly a sturdy material but they're usually nestled within a few other elements on this build so they shouldn't shift around. Any that do or that I suspect will move become superglued to the board instead of PVA.

We will be painting reaalllllllllllly soon. :D

We begin with the blue texture!!!!

This is rendering paint, as I get a lot of questions about it and it's changed the way I do hobby. No lies.

It's a thick texture that you can paint on wherever you need it, add grainy rocky desert or even thinned down can create small rusting effects. I have used it on every piece I've made since we got it and I don't intend to go back to sanding with PVA ever again.



The sand will help cover the unsightly expanding foam, plus protect the actual soft foam edges from damages during spray.


Because its painted on, you can use it to create drift and flow through the areas you want it quite easily too!

We added a lot more work to the front of the board for the models to blend in with, plus the customers basing is very debris heavy.

Back of the board needs attention too!


We got around to spray painting finally. The assembly coming apart for ease of painting was a great idea. I'm super happy that it actually worked as well as I hoped.

No real reason. Just hadn't sprayed it at the time. We got it in the end :D



We began with trying to shade areas I felt would have a lot of sand coverage and flow from the winds as well as obviously painting the sand itself. Very dark at first.


Laying down some basic colors other than sand. The purple strip was to help establish the space hulk as part of the customers army as he has a purple themed Blood Angels legion.

Gradually getting lighter as we went on.
