Default WIP Cityfight board - Black Hawk Downtown

So here's a little ongoing project for me, affectionately called Black Hawk Downtown, as thats the kind of theme i'm going for. the first pics are of the first 2x2 piece of the board i'm doing...

only one building is assembled, windows etc are being done on the others.

its made of fairly thin MDF.

here is an overview of the whole thing, the bottom corner has a nearly finished building:



this is the nearly done corner building with ruined rhino outside (not a fixture):



bit of a POV shot...

I like that. Terrain is something I hate making myself but I can certainly appreciate the work others put into it.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

OMFG T.I., you've excelled yourself.

The centrepiece looks better a little out of focus IMO, its like a night time shot from the film...

You making the final board 4x4?

IMO, any board should be made in modular 2x2 sections, so you get better replayability...

Anyway, keep up the good work...
