Welcome to Librarium Online!
I've decided to make some city-fight terrain. I ordered 500$ AU of marines to be posted to me in AUS when I was in England recently, they haven't arrived yet, but I've organised several 4000 point city fight games for when I get them, so I figured I would make some terrain before it all arrives.
I'll begin construction this evening.
My materials include:
One hot glue gun
5 Hot glue sticks
Multiple bottles of pva and superglue
One large sheet of foam board
And 5 plasticard A4 sheets.
My main aim is to create some half-decent looking terrain for my local club, which lacks much terrain, we only have a few roughly made buildings.
I'll post images of what I get done either tomorrow or the day after
Any suggestions would be appreciated, including tips on how to best use the materials.
Thanks, Jack Frost.
I've got a few tips:
- Buy 1 cities of death box, and spread the bits over a few buildings
- Draw some gothic windows and doorways, print them out, put them on the foam and cut it out.
- Get spare sprues and cut the sprue material up to cubes half a cm long, this will make for great debris you can glue to the bases.
- Get the Cityfight codex, this book has more stuff about making cities from scratch
- PVC piping makes for great pipes in buildings for chimneys and exterior sewage pipes.
- Tamiya has a few very nice kits: 1 with barrels, jerrycans and pouches and 1 with signs and fences, both ww2 era but very useful for quickly adding realistic warfield debris.
- Get spare bits from a couple of 40k armies like ork weapons, space marine helmets and skulls.
Good luck mate, i demand pictures!
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.
Voor alle nederlanders:
The Dutch Legion
Toss in a few cheap plaster cake pillars and some wire mesh from a diy store as fencing and you'll do well.
Update. Bit slower than I thought, I've been quite busy, being called into work and committments and stuff.
Anyway. I made a few bits and pieces. Only about 4 hours work all up.
I only took 2 photos. Because my internet is terrible (Dial-Up). And it's too time consuming to upload lots of photos.
Anyway, this is what I've done..
Hope they worked.
Cheers. Jack Frost
Looking good so far, I will wait to comment til later int he process. But keep it up.
Nice start, good that you have different shapes and sizes, try do do something with the large wall sections, like window sills etc to break up otherwise boaring walls.
And bullet holes, lots of bullet holes.
