Thats alot of building! and it looks very promising. Are you planing to attach and make a board/table as well or are these simply large movable terrain pieces?

I'm planning to do a whole COD table with 30x30 cm sqaure sections including streets etc, total 180x120 cm which is roughly 72x48".

Here some more photos of my bronze statue which was finished over a year ago:

http://gw-fanworld.net/attachment.php?attachmentid=32551&d=1186844091

I've also already finished a large tank hangar (30x60 cm) and almost finished a fuel dump (30x30cm), but no photos yet.


I ordered 3 sets of PEGAUS HOBBYS GOTHIC CITY BUILDING
(mor info http://www.terragenesis.co.uk/infopages/page441.html )
last week to create at least three large buildings, maybe with connecting bridges over the street sections, and a large industrial area as well...

lot of work to do ;-)

NICE! This is very inspirational work. I really like the little candles and items at the base of your statue, very much in the 40K spirit. Keep up the good work.

Woah Excellent building,
and a very inspirational statue. :D

14-08-2008, 13:45
That thing is MASSIVE!!! And pretty good looking to boot!

The statue looks nice too!

Very inspiring work! We've been working on a modular CoD table for quite a while now (Check my sig if you want to see), but we haven't built anything large yet, so this is good inspiration! The statue is awesome and I would love to see pictures of those other things you just mentioned!

Cheers!

Massive ruin, like how you have it mounted on a high base, hope this one gets finished.
Very nice statue as well.

OMFG
That is all.

Great use of CoD sprues, wish I had the abundance to make such creations. Should be awesome when it's done... detailing all of that is gonna take a while :p I love the detail and offerings at the base of the statue also!

Standard size table, same as what I am planning... maybe I should make a modular 4-base building to fill the centre. Any plans for bombed/strafed roads?

ReaperOfSouls
16-08-2008, 10:16
This is looking great so far. That city will be stunning when it's finished if you keep this standard up. The statue is beautiful. :)

zigoR
16-08-2008, 13:22
thanx for positive feedback (motivation raises!!!) :)

today I'm going to finish both section with details & the tomb stone in the centre; and start with the stairs section in front of the building. There will be some (4 or 6, don't know yet) statues also made of GreyKnights in power armour. Maybe I can start painting tomorrow ;)

zigoR
16-08-2008, 21:04
Okayyyy... It was a very nice late summer day so I had to take a long walk with my wife & our dog Lotta; she loved it, as you can see below ;)
http://divine-design.de/hobby/tut/cod/lotta_jump.jpg

...so only a small update:

I added some interior details and a lot of wreckage inside the ruins, wich is finished except the grave itself. Now it's ready for painting

yes, most of it is made of sand and PVA, on top of some polystyrene and polystyrene glue.


today I finished the stairs section and primed the whole ruin BLACK! (lot of work...hmpf)

pictures will follow tomorrow :)

Finally someone else thats making believeably sized buildings, and not those little micky mouse knockoffs on a 12x12 base.

Brilliant work mate, I've hit a bit of a creative roadblock with my own, and this has given me some much needed inspiration.

1truegod
18-08-2008, 20:17

Keep up the great work i will make a personal reminder to watch this thread as this is one of the best starts of a COD board i have seen in ages =]

How many building packs did you use for that building?

zigoR
19-08-2008, 15:36
How many building packs did you use for that building?

I bought the Imp. City box
http://uk.games-workshop.com/storefront/newimage.asp?Size=A&Img=258259
and used almost all of the Sanctum & Basilica sprues

chaos0xomega
19-08-2008, 20:12
Heh, that's what I've done to. I really wish they would release a version of that box with more basilica and sanctum sprues (or hell new sprues) instead of the manufactorum. The pieces are nice, but I don't feel as though they fit into the rest of the city. To me they're more useful for a "factory-town" type deal, or if you're crazy enough to build a hive...

Dreachon
19-08-2008, 21:59

Zigor you make every other Cityfight table look crap!

Geez once i get more cash after my marine battle company i will steal that idea :D

How many hours did you spend on it?

zigoR
24-08-2008, 21:06
thanx for comment guys! :)

@liamrob: too many hours ;)
at least 8 days of hard work....


IT'S UPDATE TIME!!
Today I painted the building in four steps:

- spraying Skull White from 50 cm distance, that makes a light grey effect on the structures

- painting everything with heavliy watered down black

- drybrush with TAMIYA XF-53 NEUTRAL GREY

- drybrush with TAMIYA XF-19 SKY GREY


Next time I will start to paint all the details and fix some mistakes...


and here we go:

More please!!!

Love the size of that thing! The painting looks great too.

Cygnusmaximus
25-08-2008, 04:41
Glad to see that there's loads of rubble in there - most ruined cities that I see have suffered an invasion of the rubble snatchers and have clean floors (which is just wrong). I don't think most people consider the fact that for there to be a ruined building, there had to be a whole building to begin with - and the rest of that building generally doesn't just disappear.
I do want to echo Bugbait's question about how easily playable the rubble sections are - and if you did manage to prevent models from falling over on all that, how did you do it?
Excellent work. I'm very hopeful that a massive table will develop from this (with loads of inspirational pics posted, of course), so keep going!

liamrob
25-08-2008, 05:07
That is excellent and so is your guard stuff :D Just imagine playing on that table when it's finished :p

How did you cut your polystyrene? Many scalpel blades or hot wire cutter?

Any chance for a walk through on the colours?
Amazing ...

zigoR
02-09-2008, 18:17
Thanx @ all! :)

@Mordant:

you can find the colours on page2/post40
After that process I "inked" almost everything with a mixture of black, dark grey, dark green and brown (to create a dirty colour... ;) ) - as a result you receive this special kind of "used look".

For the metal details I used "TinBitz" and then "Burnished Gold" or "Boltgun Metal" for non gold parts...

bugbait_nz
03-09-2008, 08:07
Hmmm, might have to try that ink mixture myself, thanks.

awesome work I am totally using this for future reference on my stuff. I like how you did the two story windows.

march10k
17-12-2008, 16:03
Awesome. Part of my future project (12.6 years from now, don't ask how I can be so certain of when) for a modular table is two 60cmx60cm sections that fit together to form a shrine/cathedral for my SoB to defend...I'll be using the 100+ photos of the Kölner Dom that I took this past Oktober for inspiration... but your rubbled floors (saw a lot of black and white photos of WW2 bomb damage that looked a lot like your rubbled floor in other cities on the same trip) and some of the details of your interior will definitely inspire me.

zigoR

Thanks 4 comments guys :)



In the meanwhile (yes... some weeks, I know ;) ) I've received a lot of PEGASUS HOBBYS stuff and arranged it quite good... trying to finish it during xmas holidays...

>> stay tuned


BTW: Kölner Dom is beautiful :) my wife was born and grew up in Cologne...so I know this Cathedral very good!

@Pegasus Hobbies buildings:

here some shots I made in late october. You can also see my gaming room (very untidy, I know ;) )

I used two standard sets, one ruine set, and 'special set' no1 + 2)

N810
22-12-2008, 23:50
Yea I love that those new sets,
I love that all those sets are modular and
you don't have to glue them.

Sidstyler
23-12-2008, 01:07
Wow, I think I like those better than the GW sets. So tall too, they look like real freaking buildings. :p

How much did you spend on just the one building though? And where'd you get those white pillars?

Solun Decius
23-12-2008, 10:23
That's a real nice cityfight table. The game room, however, is nowhere near untidy enough ;) ... You should throw some sprues and empty boxes around, maybe sprikle a bit of sand!

zigoR
23-12-2008, 10:56
Yes, I also like them more than the GW ruins... less details (but detailed enough) and easier to built...

and cheaper:

Gothic Runis (1x)
http://www.moduni.com/product_info.php/products_id/3424930
>> 21,99 EUR

Gothic City Building large (2x)
http://www.moduni.com/product_info.php/products_id/3424923
>> 30,99 EUR >> 61,98 EUR

Gothic Building Small Set 1 (1x)
http://www.moduni.com/product_info.php/products_id/3424924
>> 30,99 EUR

Gothic Building Small Set 2 (1x)
http://www.moduni.com/product_info.php/products_id/3424925
>> 30,99 EUR


TOTAL 145,95 EUR

GW large ruin set is 160 EUR....okay, you get some more bits and stuff like that... you could also scratchbuilt them...

the white pillars are just some resin-copies I made myself - will use the on the ground floor in the center of the large building, too...

@zigoR: Thanks for that great page, gonna spend my christmas money on gothic ruins, I think :D

Your buildings are awesome, really - it's just that the board needs a little fixing right, green/dirt landscape doesn't look very fitting with the ruined ashgray nightmare-landscape you are building?!

You are one experienced hobbyist my friend. I wish I had the room and supplies to practice building terrain. I guess I will have to deal with the mediocre terrain pieces at my local GW. *Sigh....*

P.S. where did you get the heavy open topped emplacement in your pics of the terrain table?

zigoR
03-03-2009, 14:10
Thanx 4 comments guys :) Hope to continue with that project within the next weeks...I'm very busy @ the moment...sry

@Serg. Lynchbox: The open topped emplace ment is a very old gypsum cast (I hope that's the correct word in english) building I bought on a convention in the late-90s (~1997?) But can't remember the manufacturer, ... I'll have some 'google research' ;)

06-08-2009, 21:23
Lookings smashing! Funny thing is I've got one of a similiar size myself which I haven't assembled due to not being able to find a good base material. What did you use there? MDF? Does it become more stable if you add another layer of material on like you've done?

Looks downright stalingrad to me! Amazing job!

all my buildings are based on this, so you can make easily a varying and "everytime different" COD board in 180x120cm....this is ~72"x48"

I use street elements of 15x30cm, so I've even more possibilities...

Those cork tiles are great, a buddy of mine's dad was telling me about how cork is quickly becoming an endangered plant and that it doesnt grow as fast as our consumption of it requires. He had a whole ton of info on it at the time. I seemed so serious about the thought of its loss, as he layed the these same tiles on his 2000 square foot main level of his house. I pointed out the irony of using so much and he responded "If I wait I'll never be able to afford it."

Eh, not so much. Cork is one of the most environmentally friendly and easily renewable flooring materials around.

The cork INDUSTRY is endangered however, mainly because so many wine manufacturers have switched to plastic stoppers (no mold taste or contamination that way.) Growers may stop planting and harvesting cork since there isn't as much demand (and then that cork floor really will get expensive), but it's not a matter of evil humans chopping down all the cork in the world.

Sorry for the tangent... but in the long run the best way to "save" cork is to use more cork!

moduni.de / moduni.com also delivers to UK... and PEGASUS is a US company.. why should they not ship to UK?

Thats for pointing out that site - I hadn't found that one. The US site does deliver to the UK but shipping costs more that the item itself - so that was a no go. The shipping on the site you have recommended seems far more reasonable and is even free if I spend over 125 euros which might be an idea - cheers, fella!

Wow, simply amazing! You win the award for best CoD scenery that is for sure! Love the huge buildings and glad you are back! Though enquiring minds want to know:

1) Where do you store these huge buildings?
2) Did you scrape mould lines? (Love the Pegasus sets but found they are a pain in that they have pretty big mould lines)
3) Have you had a chance to play any games on your scenery yet? If so, did you take any pictures?
4) How is it from a playability perspective?

One small feedback. On the last building their are visible slots. The pegasus sets includes butresses and other filler pieces to go in there. I think it would help the building to look even better.

There's plenty of Pegasus stuff on eBay; I bought quite a bit on Zigor's recommendation.

1) IKEA is your friend ;) I use IVAR http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/S49824326 >> I'll take a foto of my gaming room and a the "storage"

2) yes, for sure! always! ...Pegasus is in some way comparable to GW...so a good knife is your friend this time!

3) no, not yet :cries: and no pictures...

4) It works fine! We used the large cathedral buildung on a tournament, and all players were very satisfied! Placing miniatures inside is a bit complicated, but makes also no sense for games, because you have no line of sight, so you normaly place your minis on the top galleries of the building >> no problem so far!



@visible slots: yes, I was too lazy to put these fillers indisde the building, but it's OK for me... imagine a real office building: there are a many slots or locks and hatches for cables in the walls and pillars etc... may these holes represent this ;)


UPDATE: I made a FLAK-TURM (AA tower) but I'll use it for "green" scenery...

Pictures tomorrow, I'm on holiday right now :D


EDIT: looks a bit like this:

Zigor your stuff is just amazing. Really makes me want to go and get some more CoD terrain. I always wandered what the Pegasus buildings looked like, they work really well with the GW stuff.

Anyone based in the UK wanting Pegasus bits can get them from www.hannants.co.uk Ive not bought the buildings yet but have bought other stuff and they dont hang about sending kits to you.
