Default To the Streets! Reaper's Imperial City.

Yoyo people, my project this summer is a game board.

Iíve wanted to have my own board for some years but time, money and space have always been my enemy. Well in September Iíll be moving into a new house with Concrete Hero and several of our other friends. I will be having the big room, which has enough space to accommodate a game board, so. . . Iím going to make one.

It will be modular, split into 2*2 feet sections that have the buildings free floating to aid storage. Iíve planned it all out to have a grid like road system which will make it more customizable.

In total, the board will have 14 buildings as well as various other features (E.G power planet, fuel dump, a square with a statue)

Anyway, enough yapping, onto some piccies:

My first three buildings:

1








2














3






The fuel dump WIP




The power generator WIP






Iím really pleased with my progress so far, Iíve only been working on this for a week or so.

Iíve got one of the Pegasus hobbies buildings coming in the mail (the one with a big circle stained glass looking window, set 2 I think) which Iíll be using as a church. Iíve also got a big building built which will be a hospital/xenos lab. Iíll be buying the forge world dissection table come pay day.

Anyway, hope youíve enjoyed what youíve seen so far. Feel free to leave a comment, they are all greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Reaper

Woahh great work. The paint job looks very crisp, not sure if the red checkered tiles fit in on the buildings, but either way this is an impressive piece. The Guard posters are a very nice touch. plus rep indeed.

As always Reaper, your work is simply badass. The Scout is pretty cool as well, mind I look forward to seeing more of this, do you know how large this will be roughly? Plus rep mate!

"No one ever spoke about of those two absent brothers. Their separate tragedies had seemed like aberrations. Had they, in fact, been warnings that no one had heeded?"

'Killing a man is like fucking, boy, only instead of giving life you take it. You experience the ecstasy of penetration as your warhead enters the enemy's belly and the shaft follows. You see the whites of his eyes roll inside the sockets of his helmet. You feel his knees give way beneath him and the weight of his faltering flesh draw down the point of your spear. Are you picturing this?'
'Yes, lord.'
'Is your dick hard yet?'
'No, lord.'
''What? You've got your spear in a man's guts and your dog isn't stiff? What are you, a woman?'

I simply love the imperial propaganda! A fabulous job there matey! I'll definitely follow this to see how it turns out, also wanting to do a cityfight board. I'm planning on a dock/trainyard with highway and loading cranes. Anyway, you've done a really good job.

Cheers man.

The buildings themselves are sprayed army painter uniform grey and drybrushed astrinomican grey. The bases are adeptus battlegrey drybrushed codex grey. The weathered areas are done with vietnam earth MIG pigment.

Some damn fine pieces there, reaper. I like the use of the CPU components. I have an old xbox and an old sky box put aside for the very same purpose.
