I'm a little new to making my own scenery, having one ruined building made out of a cheez-it box under my belt. I'm wondering if anyone knows about a resource site with printable templates for making buildings that would fit into 40k. Additionally, where does everyone buy their materials, and what materials would work best for making buildings of the orky persuasion?
What i do to make a 40k buildings or Ork building is to buy foam board at your local craft store for about two bucks, then draw the shape you want the building to be on the foam board and cut it out with a exacto knife and glue it together.

I have a few basic templates found around the web here -

As you can see, if you have a ruler and some cardboard you can easily make your own!
I use anything I can find to make terrain, dont forget the terrain builders first rule, never throw anything away!
5mm Foamboard from the local stationery warhouse is nice and easy to use as is old polystyrene packing material.

I'm an avid recycler so I use everything from home, or stuff that wouldn't be used otherwise.
I use thick cardboard (not cut perfectly), tin cans (glyphed up), sprue pieces etc etc
Im currently working on an ork krane
Thanks everyone, and especially bugbait, that was exactly what I was looking for!
One more quick question...is there anywhere online I can buy foam-core sheets? There's no hobby shop where I live, so buying locally isn't an option.
I have never seen foamboard at any hobby shops, only the large stationery shops usually in 4 x 2 ft sheets, and sizes 2 and 5 mm thick, two colours black or white. Store this stuff carefully as it will slowly warp over time.
Well, there isn't a staionary store where I live either. xD
Thanks for the storage tip!
Plan B, hardware stores have 3mm MDF wood, basic straight cuts are easy with a box cutter knife, jigsaw is better for complex cuts.
Plan C, move house!
Ebay.... That's wher I get some of the stuff I need since cardboard won't always work....
