Dude this is turning out to be a rocking project and I can't wait to see it finished. Have a bit of rep for doing such a nice job on something I absolutely hate to do (terrain).

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?

Ok that church is simply sex on toast. I'll rep you when I can, got to spread the love first. Are the statues part of the kit or are they from somewhere else? I really like the idea of the graves and whatnot. I look forward to seeing more.

Awesome job bro, that church looks tight! If I may ask, what are you using to build the terrain on? Thanks again!

There is an imperial fist corpse on the fuel dump tile, although all you can really see is a leg. But now you mention it, I can think of a few things to do with corpses and such.

One detail that will go in is in the church graveyeard, I plan to paitn up some zombies to put there when the board is on display.

Cheers Pie, the statues are LotR terrain. I've had them floating around for years and decided it was time to put them to use lol.

The church is going to be one of three buildings that have superior detailing and are more like display pieces. The other will be a hospital/quarantine area and the last one is a secret :D

Thanks kindly. For the board itself, I've got 6, 2"x2"x6mm pieces of hardboard. And the buildings themselves are based on 4mm mdf cut to size.

For all the wood, along with a bag of sand for basing and a load of pva glue it came to about 20 pounds. Probably could have gotten the wood a little cheaper but oh well.

On the progress front, there has not really been any lol. I've only had a chance to drybrush the church in the last few days. I have however, ordered my dissection table for the hospital, so once that arrives, I'm hoping it will motivate me to finish the church so I can crack on with the hospital.


Cheers all.

Thanks a lot. I think the computer parts look very 40k to begin with and mesh very well with the other terrain :D

Every log needs a poster child, and he is mine :D

On the update front, my dissection table arrived today, so i need to get the church finished so I can start of the hospital/quarantine area.

Cheers all.
