The Super Scenery Project – Part 1 – Aegis Defence Line
You may have noticed that my scenery is something that has gotten a little left behind in the painting stakes (you might not care!). I’ve got a pretty varied collection of scenery such as the citadel woods, imperial sector ruins, imperial strongpoint (bastions and defense lines) and moonscape craters. Every single bit of it still it it’s original straight-from-the-sprue-grey colour scheme. The only bit of scenery that I’ve got painted is my home made “realm of battle” board which to be honest needs a bit of love. Therefore I’ve decided to embark upon a project to change this situation. Therefore I’m going to alternate between painting some figures for an army and painting a scenery piece. The idea here is to make our games of 40K more immersive where the scenery helps set the mood for the game. With the sheer amount of scenery I have this isn’t going to be an overnight change but hopefully if I tackle it bit by bit I’ll start to get on top of it. This is mostly inspired by the fantastic new 6th edition rulebook which has some excellent battlefields but also from attending the Design Studio Open Day where there were some fantastic looking scenery being painted in a short space of time.
