Thanks @Brother Dextus

Hopefully I'll have the supports cut for the upper level today.


Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Not on every tile, things I think would get a little congested if I had something on each of the 16. I'm thinking of doing another one of these dumping stations, which stand about 14" tall and the main platform is 8" square, several modular walkways with subtly larger platform areas as 'spray down stations' for the canals, four pillars (at least one or two with ramshackle sniper nests up top), the pipeline that I've had sort of in the works the whole time, and two larger 10x10" platforms for the fully raised tiles that have no canal. I was thinking one of them would have a large freight elevator on it with skids/crates as scatter terrain and the other could have large storage tanks of water/cleaner used for the hose down sections so long as I can reasonably run pipes to and from it.

Everything will be capped at 12" taller than the main level of the table (14" from the bottom of the canals) to imply a fairly low ceiling to the area. Ultimately I'm looking at 5-6 different levels vertically for models to use.

....any of that make sense? Here's where I'm at with it now. Really jonesing for more than 10 minutes at a time to put on it.

Thatís sounds like some awesome terrain youíve got coming up. Are you going to add some barriers, gantry and walk ways for the raised areas? Going on your build quality so far youíre going to have a green eyed monster inducing sweet gaming table!
Keep it up dude.

Was reading through HH red books yesterday and was thinking your terrain would also make a pretty good space hulk if you put the tall sections either side of a low tile in the middle.


It looks awesome dude.

Thanks for the kind words Would you believe this is my first actual cohesive terrain project? I've built various small things in the past but this is the first venture into an entirely themed and scratch built table with terrain specific to it.

The walkways I mentioned in my previous post will be ~2" above the raised area of the table on legs echoing the telescoping poles of the dumping station (ie. I have more of that tubing and found a far better way of cutting it ). I'm thinking that I should have another level above that though....I'll have to figure that out as I get rolling on that aspect of the terrain. The main platform of the dumping station will be ~1" above the walkway system (3" above raised area of table). I could maybe transform my pillar idea to enclosed staircases, that way I could put precariously high walkways (~10" above raised area of table) between them way up at the 'ceiling'.

I have thought many many times about building a retaining wall with sewage grates in it to cover the rough edge of the table so that it works with a flat area and adds to a much larger table, but for now that idea is stewing. Once I get a couple tables done for 40k I'm totally going to recreated the Space Hulk tiles for a more immersive game. Will very likely widen things up to accommodate Zone Mortalis as well, but with relatively obvious squares to maintain the ability to play Space Hulk (since it's what got me into this whole nonsense hobby back in the 90's).

Finished everything but the fine detail work on the main platform centre console thingy and glued the legs for the second level in place, though the second level is still sitting unattached (don't think the legs were glued in place for the second picture, but that's basically where they are).





One I finish the small details I'd like to add to the consoles it's on to the ladder between levels I think, so I can glue the top in place finally. Railings I'll have to work out once I've done some hard thinking on my walkway system. I have the design and materials at least.

Finished the console details, glued the 2nd level in place (after playing a stupid game with leveling it off a bit better), and am ready to start work on the ladder between levels and the railing up top. I think I may have to add some supports in underneath on the main legs as well, to pull two in that have waffled out a bit but more to better support them as they are just glued by the edges of a tube to the bottom and are ~5" tall.







EDIT: Got a bit more time, did work on the ladder. Pink part not glued in, and I cut them a bit long to give me leeway with the railing.

Woo railings! Decided to only to one entrance to the main platform. The piece can easily be turned on the spot to whatever heading is desired during setup anyway.





Next up: some details around the pipe on the top level once I figure that out.
