Behold my mighty pile of plastic crack! It’s time for some proper 40k terrain 🙂
Is the backdrop to our 40k games in an on/off campaign we play. My terrain will be situated in the northern part as it fits with my Frontline Alpine mat and the basing on my DKoK and Orks.
I’ll work through the buildings first, kitbashing and just getting stuff sorted. I want big buildings and wrecked vehicles and debris. Perfect hunting grounds for my Cult and especially my Horsemen 🙂
I won’t debase things, I think. I want the conflict zone appearing fairly fresh as that will open up for colours and I want my terrain to look good!
Will be the Shrine of the Aquila. Very cool building!
I found with games workshop terrain, a glue gun really speeds up the assembly process and holds extremely well. If you want to make the terrain go further then you can use foamcore to make wall sections together with the GW stuff, some examples on my blog of buildings I have done this with. Look forward to the results.
I use a really nice plastic cement glue that works great. Been using it for years and I feel I have good control of the process.
I’ve got a halfway decent plan on how to do it and I’ll say as much. Huge.
I’ll check your blog, thanks for the tip 🙂
I was in my flgs the other day looking at terrain kits from all sorts of people, including GW. I have often thought that it would be cool to have some wrecked vehicles for terrain but always thought that was a lot of money to spend on a model and then trash it, just for terrain, but then while I was standing and looking at the various kits, came to the realisation that there is really no difference in price. In fact some vehicles are a lot cheaper than the terrain kits! Rhinos are half the price of some kits! Then I realised something else – if you buy a Landraider and use it for terrain, you will use it far more in your games than buying one for your army. Having had all those epiphanies I left the shop without making any purchases at all lol
Haha, you’re saying something there 🙂 my vehicles are second hand wrecks from eBay that I can’t be bothered with in salvaging. They’re that bad!
Going through my purchases though I must say this is actually quite a lot of plastic for your buck. Much better than the last time I bought 40k terrain which was around the cityfight days.
Yeah pre-owned wrecks are best (if they are the right price). Certainly cheapest.
And you don’t feel so bad tearing into them 😉
Plus if they are that badly built they already look damaged! Or mutated. Perhaps Tzeench had been up to his dirty tricks. 🙂
You know I should’ve done a blog post on a couple of those tanks I bought on eBay. You would not believe what some people had been up to!
Oh I’d believe 🙂
