Greetings Heretics. I return with news from the field. My madness idea of a Game board has spread. I thought to myself, why have one board, when I could have three!

I have brought myself a 6*4 board and sprayed both sides with Plasti-kote stone effect textured paint (much finer than basing with sand)
I plan on having one side grey for my city terrain and the other a desert board. The third board will be achieved by covering the timber with my citadel gaming mat and various green terrain pieces.

I've began early work on desert tiles.

my desert board will be an abandoned imperial World that is being fought over by the tau empire (gives me a use for all the tau bits i have that will never be used in an army lol)

Here are some WIP shots:

Abandoned imperial building:









The white stuff is Das putty which represents the mounds of sand that build up due to the winds. It will also be textured with plasti-kote.

Next up is a crisis graveyard. Here is where a squad of crisis suits made their last stand against the might of the Imperium, as you can see, they didn't do well lol







Next is a filler tile with an exhaust that leads to a subterranean manufactorum, some palm trees and tau wreckage.

Devilfish wreckage


Crashed drone:


Next up are the ruins of another imperial building. Here lie the remains of a fire warrior and another crisis suit, slain by the imperium.









Lastly we have a wrecked devilfish, shot down by Cadian Hydras as it transports a squad of fire warriors (their bodies have yet to be added)





Obviously these pieces are in the very early stages, but so far I'm very pleased with them and think they will look great when they are done. I'd love to hear your thoughts though

Those desert ones look great. The are going to look amazing when you are done.

Out of curiosity, what material are you using for the dunes?

It's a pre-mixed putty called Das. It sets like greenstuff (though harder and more brittle) and costs about 4 for a Kg. It's only really useful for rough work as it's not fine enough for detail work. It's been perfect for making the dunes though as they will be textured anyway.

Nice terrain even if it is in its early stages. You seem to have abundant tallent.

Wow I like that a lot Reaper. One thing I do think is needed however is for more small areas of sand dunes to be laid down here and there as they are only building up where objects are placed. Not big dunes or anything but some small, gentle ones to help complete the illusion.

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?

First of al WOW
Second of all WOW
And Thirdly WOW.........


Love the posters it really gives the buildings that 40k edge thats normally missing from most pieces.

The lay out of them also rock as well and can't wait to see the finished results.

Would love to know how you done the posters, Or even better a tutorial?


Oh max rep by the way will be given.

I know what you mean Wraith, I've still to add smalled dunes where various fire warriors and guardsmen have fallen as well as random ones on their own.

Yo folks, done some more work on the desert pieces today. I've added random dunes to give it a more natural feel as well as some more details.















I've also started another desert tile, a long abandoned tank factory:









Hope you enjoyed this instalment folks, please feel free to leave some comments.

Cheers

Reaper
