Hi there,

A friend at my local GW asked me to start a project log here, so I figured I'd oblige. I'll start by saying this:

More pictures of this and other projects can be seen at my website: http://nedius.webs.com/spacehulk.htm.

Ok, so my board!

The aim of my project is to create a multi-system, modular terrain board that is firstly a Space Hulk board, but is also suitable for games of 40k. The board must be representative of the individual Space Hulk board tiles, but also be stand alone terrain pieces. The tiles should be varied, and if possible interactive (both physically and game-wise). It should also be easy to store (I don't have a huge amount of storage space at home!). Finally, it should be robust yet light, thus, ideally, entirely plastic.

I've been working on this for some time now. At the moment, my priority is to create the basic layout of Suicide Mission done. Once done, I'll decorate the scratch built walls and interiors, and then paint the board. Once this is done, I'll make roof sections for each section, allowing the board to become a sealed terrain set for games of 40k. The roof building will be mixed with building additional sections that will allow me to play other Space Hulk missions, and add greater variety to my 40k game layouts.

Anyway, I'll add detailed info later as I'm pressed for time, but here's a taste!

Please resize pictures so they are no more than 640 pixels wide and no longer mess up the layout of the forum. This would also make it easier to get an impression of the project. :)

I've been wondering of the feasability of this for a long time, so it's nice to see that it looks great!

Exactly what/how many sets have you used/expect to use to make this? I can see the ever-useful cities of death buildings, an inspired use of the bastions (craziness, looks amazing), and some of the platformer(?) chemical plant bits.. I just don't know how many! :p

Fantastic start though, keep it up! :D

Well, you can do something as easy as opening them in Paint and under Image you choose the Resize / Skew (or whatever it's called in english) option. Then you simply choose the same percentage for the vertical and horizontal rezise (40% should be a good start).

Thanks for the comments so far!

Resource list

MIGHTYpanhead asked what had gone into this set. Well, here's the list so far (or so far as I remember...):


3 x Imperial Sectors
1x Bastion
2 x shrine of the aquilla
1 x bio-toxin plant
1 x Maunfactorum box
1 x Sanctum Imperialis box
several sheets of 3-4mm plasticard, and other sheets of varying thickness
several textured plasticard sheets
various styrene rods, tubes, and other shapes
several warhammer regiment modular bases
lots of stuff raided from my own bitz box, and some donations by friends!


I estimate that at the moment I've spent well over £300 on this set. However, I've been at this for a few months, so usually I've paid about £20-£50 a month on getting bits and putting it together (my armies have seen VERY little love over this time!). Still, at this cost it's cheaper and more versitile than the forgeworld base!

My original attempt was done using card and foamcore. Far cheaper, but much more labour intensive, less durable and looked, well, cardboard-ish. I couldn't compete with Modhail's project, so decided to take a different route. I'd seen resin casts, Hirstarts stuff etc, but nothing quite like this.


Making a tile section - part 1

I though some of you might me interested in the process I go through to make the tile sections. It's far from well thought out, and really quite simple. What I like about it is that it creates a tile that has an inside and outside, making it perfect for games of 40k as well as space hulk.

Step 1

http://www.freewebs.com/nedius/photos/3D-Space-hulk-Board/Space%20Hulk%2022.JPG

I was making this tile section last night. I started by cutting a 7x7 square from a warhammer regimental base, getting four floor tiles, 3 wall tiles and several sprue bits with the raised cylinders still on. Each cylinder ws about an inch apart.

Step 2

http://www.freewebs.com/nedius/photos/3D-Space-hulk-Board/Space%20Hulk%2021.JPG

I glued the sprue bits to the underside of the floor tile. This raises it up enough so that things can fit underneath it, to give the apperance of complex machinery hidden beneath the floor.

Step 3

http://www.freewebs.com/nedius/photos/3D-Space-hulk-Board/Space%20Hulk%2024.JPG

I mark the centre lines on the base, so that lining up the tiles is easy. It helps make sure that the tiles will line up with each other. I messed this up on a couple of tiles, and it looks a bit odd. I may need to repair them at some time, ripping up the floor and re-gluing it.

Step 4

http://www.freewebs.com/nedius/photos/3D-Space-hulk-Board/Space%20Hulk%2025.JPG

Now, as I'm rushing to get the basic layout done for tomorrow (I'm planning on taking the board to my local GW for release day), I've not added any decoration to the base here. This will be added later. Ideally, it would be added now as it's easiest to acces the floor when the walls are detached. However, for the sake of speed, I've gotten straight on with the walls. They are just three tiles glued together. However, before being stuck down, each end needs plaining down slightly, as the walls are slightly wider than the floors. This can be a real pain, both as to do it can often damage detail, but not doing so leaves gaps between the bases!



Step 5

http://www.freewebs.com/nedius/photos/3D-Space-hulk-Board/Space%20Hulk%2026.JPG

http://www.freewebs.com/nedius/photos/3D-Space-hulk-Board/Space%20Hulk%2027.JPG

Glue the walls in place, using the butresses for support. This creates both the inner and outer wall for the section, making it look as impressive from the outside as the inside, an important part of this project.


The nest bit is more complicated, as walls now need to be custom built. For the sake of speed, again I'll put the walls together first, then decorate. I'm compromising on build quality at the moment so that the board is at least lay-out-able. After this weekend, I can slow down and do things properly.

Anyway, I must go and finish my last 5 sections ready for tomorrow. I'll take pics of the building process, and of the board's first run-out at the release day!

It was very well recieved at my local GW, and had a fair sized group of people gaming around it all day. Lots of people played through suicide mission, both as genestealers and marines. We found it a very good set. The new space hulk miniatures fit onto it very well. The only difficult tiles are those with the little trap door on them. The raised skull makes models standing on it lean over a bit. However, the tile is big enough to stand most of the miniatures off to the side of it.

Anyway, here's a couple of the day's highlights.

Yes! This is why I hang around on this forum... It looks really great! The raised walkway, pipelines, everything! It has the right feel to it.

Great job, now let's see some paint ;)

nedius
05-09-2009, 21:26
paint??? NOOOOO!!!!

Lol, of course, I'll get to painting it soon enough.

I'll complete a tile section, and then paint it. Might make a few more tiles whilst I'm at it, of course...

Unfortunatly, I'm not bad at modelling, but I am bad at painting! So don't expect anything to astonishing in that department!

05-09-2009, 21:43
that really is a thing of beauty sir, the scary thing is I have 3 imperial sectors all de sprued and waiting to be put together. This thread has given me some conflicted ideas my modular COD board might have to wait....

can't wait to see it all painted up.

This looks bloody awesome!! And what a great idea bout using the tiled sections out of the Cities of Death box sets!! It actually means that you can fit the models on the squares!! It looks awesome!! Wish I could afford to do something similar!! Had the same idea bout the wallet is a bit light to do that!! haha. and there is noooooo way Id make it look as good as that!! Wonderful work!!

wow that is super fantastic! wish i could have a go on that board. how well do the sections fit together to make boards for use in other missions?

The board sections match the card tile sections exactly, albeit it quite a bit larger. So once I've got the set done, any mission you can play with the card tileset will be possible.

As for expense, it is an expensive set, but in a way that's testament to how long term a project this is. I buy one regimental base pack and a city of death building, or sector if I'm feeling flush, at a time, and do it little at a time. So it's slow going, and the expense is spread out. I've no expectation to have a complete set anytime soon. Each tile takes an evening to build the basic layout, never mind decorate.

Anyway, I'll be giving the set another run out tomorrow (will take some more pics - I want to use my stealers rather than the space hulk ones!), and after that I'll get back to work on it.

Over the next few weeks I'll be working on the following:


rooftops for the rooms and corridors
decoration pannels for the blank walls
piping and other decoration for the inside bases
basic layout tiles for the next smallest mission
more 'how I made my tiles' sections.
my own modelled terminators on detachable 40mm bases


After the rush to get ready for release day, I've had a few days break!

Insidentally, anyone know of a good LED tutorial?

Hi all,

Well, my break from the table is over, and I'm getting back to work (when I've time from my actual work...). However, there's been some slow progress on the modelling side, and the first public outing of the board as some 40k terrain.

First off, a pic of my own classic genestealers...


http://www.freewebs.com/nedius/photos/3D-Space-hulk-Board/Space%20Hulk%2067.JPG

And then a pic of my friend Ali's genestealers!


http://www.freewebs.com/nedius/photos/3D-Space-hulk-Board/Space%20Hulk%2073.JPG

This is the board we played on. A simple X shape, just to try it out. We've decided that although it was an interesting game, we really should have used more of the corridors to give it a real test.

In the background you can see the Landing pad (or the beginnings of it). As it's such a big piece, I'm going to try and magnetise it, and keep it in bits so that I can easily take it appart (easy storage!).


http://www.freewebs.com/nedius/photos/3D-Space-hulk-Board/Space%20Hulk%2072.JPG

More shots of the game are at my website (see below)


http://www.freewebs.com/nedius/photos/3D-Space-hulk-Board/Space%20Hulk%20DSC00538.JPG

As for modelling, this is one of the basic little bits I'm doing - 'step' tiles. This one is a bit naff, but you get the idea. It's not as good as the pannels Paulsongames has done (darn him!!). After that, there's a shot of some of the detail panneling I've added to some of the walls. It's not extensive, and needs lots more work, but I can almost manufacture these small bits for just sticking onto whichever wall I need. Mixing them up will allow for some variation in the deco as well.

It looks awesome, especially on the gaming board. It looks like it could be a lot of fun as a Space Hulk game, but also without using the SH rules... So perhaps a group of desperate Guardsmen trying to get out, using the normal 40K rules or something...
Keep it up! Really nice stuff.

Would make a V good pic, in the dark, with just a dim red light slightly showing the xenos horde wanting to rip them apart!!

Thanks, I will do my best! At the moment, I'm working on a few things that are a bit little - decorations on walls etc. And I'm doing a few bits on some of the other projects, although even they are linking to my SH project. I'm building a base for a carnifex that is desigend to look like the floor of the 3D board! I'll get some pics soon.

And Bugbait, yes, you can just about fit a dreadnought base in the corridors with little in the way of tall pipes etc. If you go to the gallery at my website, you'll se a brood of 3 lictors all in one section - easily enough room to replace them with something bigger.

Will get some more pics soon. I want to do some entry point tiles, which I'll show soon enough.

Nedius I have to say this is one of the nicest Space Hulk 3Ds I have come across and I have been playing this game for a LONGGGGG time. Not as long as some longbeard but long enough to have boughten genestealer when it first came out. Anyway you have inspired me and I have stred buying the items on your list of components. Mission 1-1 was always I ball. Congrads and good luck. :)

26th September 2009

I've been working on decorating my board recently, so no new sections to share yet! I'm eyeing up making some tiles that are designed to represent entry points, and also a side project - I've so many broken bits of terrain, I could do a small boards-worth of scatter terrain. These would be prety small, something that would be very useful when storage is an issue for me!

Anyway, what have I been up to? Well, I've been decorating so the tiles will be ready for painting, rather than the slightly plain interior most sections have (in particular the junctions).

So, I thought I'd present this as another 'how to' section. Insidentally, the first 3 pics are old, the next three are new.

Making short walls

Short walls are used to make the inside walls of any corner, so with all the jucntions in Space Hulk, there's a lot of them to make! Here's how I do it.

1. Cut the bits you need. I measure them as carefully as i can, then try them out so I know the bits are ready. You'll need 3 beams and two walls for each 'corner' bit. Notice that I've got two white bits. These are styrene square rods - they give a straighter join than the CoD beams, which have slightly sides.


http://www.freewebs.com/nedius/photos/3D-Space-hulk-Board/Space%20Hulk%2028.JPG

2. Glue them together, and then in place on the board.


http://www.freewebs.com/nedius/photos/3D-Space-hulk-Board/Space%20Hulk%2029.JPG

http://www.freewebs.com/nedius/photos/3D-Space-hulk-Board/Space%20Hulk%2030.JPG

3. Decorate them! Now, I did this in this order as I wanted the board playable asap. It would have been much easier and more efficient if step 3 was done before step 2... However, now I've made my bed, I'll lie in it!

So, I make small pannels that will be easily stuck on anywhere I think they'd look good. Easy to make, easy to place.


http://www.freewebs.com/nedius/photos/3D-Space-hulk-Board/Space%20Hulk%2086.JPG

Then, I add them on.

Decorating Floors

I've also been decorating the floors, using bits and bobs inspired by the 3rd ed floor tiles themselves.

I've added books with spilled pages, and shell casings scattered around. I've also got bits of discarded equiment, limbs and terminator helmets (evidently dropped by a 3rd ed stealer...). I'll get pictures when I'm next working on those board sections.

Anyway, for the moment, here's some of the floor deco I have:

http://www.freewebs.com/nedius/photos/3D-Space-hulk-Board/Space%20Hulk%2085.JPG

I've done further work on the second pic, I'll get a comparison soon.

As a side, I've made a 'monsterous base' for a carnifex I'm working on. I wanted it to look like I took it from my Space Hulk board, so I used the same processes on it. It's not quite finished, though. I can't decide what is missing. I feel bases like this should look complete even before they've got something standing on them, and this one doesn't. What's missing? Can you help me out?

By the looks of the pics the set works really well in normal 40k games as well as Space Hulk.

Now....... PAINT! :D

I may paint a section this weekend, just to try out a scheme I'm considering.

I had the chance to see the Forgeworld anphelion base at Games Day this year and it's so small! My sections are around twice the size of a Forgeworld section. by using the CoD floor tiles, it really has made the board a formidable size.

If I do get painting this weekend, I'll post some pics. I'll warn you in advance that my painting is rubbish!

Sorry about the lack of progress recently! I've been quite busy with some stuff to do with related Space Hulk projects - my PC-2-board game campaign, and classic RT era genestealers on Space hulk-sih bases. However, I'm going to start painting soon, whilst finishing the decoration on those sections quite plain.

I'm also looking forward to seeing this Fortress of Redemption... I'd like to see how I can use that to make some interesting board sections. The tower would be good as a roof piece, the gun and fire platforms interesting dead ends. Hopefully I'll get to see it soon!

ChrisMurray
18-11-2009, 12:53
Only just found this thread. The board is looking good, I might have to pop down one day when your about and see it in person. Painting all those details is going to be a pain though lol.

You could use the Fortress of redemption as a temple\interior check point as space hulks are so vast they could possibly have massive cavern like rooms with fortress checkpoints and temples in them. (well I like to think so anyway)

nedius
18-11-2009, 20:56
I'm hoping to see the size of it first... I want to check it will fit with the hight of the rest of the board. But thanks for the suggestion! Hope to be able to get some more pics soon - even if only of the new decorated sections I've done.

As a side, I've made a 'monsterous base' for a carnifex I'm working on. ... What's missing? Can you help me out?

Aside from the Carnifex (ho ho!), I would put a box or more pipes to one side ot the vertical pipes you already have - something to make it more asymmetrical.

I loved your detailing of the inspection panel with only one bolt, which shows detail under it, so perhaps a hole in one of the floor plates (bent upwards?), although it looks glued down and this would be a right pain to do.

Wow.

This is an amazing project, and one which makes me wish I had unlimited free time so I could build my own set :D

Everything looks fantastic so far, but I fear it'll be a royal pain to paint with everything already stuck down - hopefully you can still lever the pieces apart without much damage so you can get at the fiddly bits.

There should be some pics of the interior details I've added, and the basecoating tomorrow.

Maklai, if you want to see how I did this, there's a few pics in the space hulk photo gallery on my website (http://nedius.webs.com/apps/photos/photo?photoid=50660577)

Ok, well, I spent 3 hours and five cans of black undercoat spray basecoating all of my current board sections. MAN but that was a long job. It was evening, so freezing cold, dark and damp. Far from dieal conditions! However, the result is that not only are all my current sections ready for painting, I've actually started! One section now has the base colours ready for me to age, weather and add detail to. Pics soon, I promise!

However, to keep you going, here are some pics of the interior details of the hulk.

Ok, well here are some of my painting WIP shots.

There's plenty left to do, as you will see! I'm sort of working in colour blocks, doing one colour section, along with all the highlighting and so on at once, before moving onto the next. This means the walls and floors are all 'done', and now I need to do the metal work and smaller, decorative details.

And after that's done, the process of weathering and aging will begin - paint chips, rust, dirt, blood stains, all still to be added!

I'm also working on a 'get all the base colours done first' system. Thatway, the walls and floors of the whole board will be done before I go back and do the detail work. This will mean it will look ok when on the table being played long before any of the sections are actually finished...

Anyway, the pics so far!

Looks really good Nedius, but how do you plan on painting those space marines? The space to get in and detail them looks a little tight. Will they just stay green?

I'm tempted to copy terrain like this, but it must take up a lot of space (and cost a heap).

Well, so far I have half of all the board sections I need for a complete set, and it's probably cost about £200 - £300? But that's been spread out over many months, so it's not been too bad. As for space, other than the chapel I think the whole set can be fitted into two large storage boxes which go in my loft, so space isn't too bad.

As for the marines, they will be painted to be like bronze statues, so baze coat dwarf bronze, bit of a dry brush highlight and a green/turquoise wash to make it look old and corroded. Hopefully will look ok.

I would never ever ever ever use LED lights in a model or a miniature.
If you painted highlights on something you will allready have given it the look 'as if there is a light shining on it'

Now if you then ad a actual light that shines on it, not only will you effectively make your painting pointless, you will also make the look of the entire model 'wierd'.

At least, that's my experience with it, that's what i have seen. I might just be a idiot who knows nothing tho :P

But, it is very, very awesome! And I salute you for that! Good use of Platformer bitz.

nedius
21-01-2010, 13:38
well, this has been on the go for about a year, and has probably cost around £400+ over that time. I begged, borrowed and scrounged spare floor tiles, so that wasn't so bad. You get about 9 useable tiles in each set? So one building can usually make 2-3 corridor sections. Someone could also do this much quicker if they gave some proper time to I. I tend to just get bits and bobs done as and when I can/feel up to it!

I think I remember that, with what looked like an Eldar Wraithlord and a very thin and weak looking person that was wired into the display (or something like that)? I think it may have been in the old rule book...

nedius
21-01-2010, 19:43
Not a bad idea, but it's in the middle of the room, isn't it? I'd have to make it either removeable, or move such features to the side of the room.

About the display - it's a great idea, but once the base coating is done I'm going weather and age the set quite heavily. So things like display units would be broken, shattered and and so on. I was going to use CRasterImage's tile system to make some display images, but held back for the reason mentioned above... maybe I need to rethink that.

I don't think the toilets in the 41st millennium would look the same as the ones today, possibly just a metal tube and a rim to sit on?

Modhail
24-01-2010, 10:16
I think it depends on social status. For the lower classes, especially indentured workers, it would just be a drain under their feet at their workstation.

Middle class toilets would just be the fold-away type you see in some Naval vessels (and Firefly...). Does the job, doesn't take up space.

For the upper classes you'd get Silurian marble pots, sculpted like the maw of a Tesserian Fangbeast with a rim covered in pterasquirrel fur (the furs are replaced and melta-burned after each seating, naturally). All set under an Ancient Terran Oak awning, hung with rare Spallsilk, embroidered with ormulo wire and privacy-screens woven in. It naturally comes with full wiper-servitors, scent-eater cherubs and a custom made cheekbuffer servitor. With scented buffing pads ofcourse...

If you are satisfied with regular modern-day pots, you could just go here (http://www.blackcatbases.com/product.asp?strPageHistory=category&numSearchStartRecord=0&strParents=135&CAT_ID=135&P_ID=447&btnProduct=Products...).

Would they use sea shells instead of toilet paper in the 41st millennium?

But I agree, toilets are needed! toilets is what made Duke Nukem 3D such a bad ass!

But, it is very, very awesome! And I salute you for that! Good use of Platformer bitz.

It would be possible to speed it up by making your own floor tiles. Make half a dozen assorted 'master' tiles out of balsa, bitz and ends, make a rubber mould and then cast them in resin or dental plaster. Very easy to do and would be very cost effective on a project like this.

Ok, well, just so we all know this isn't a dead project...

The reason for the lack of updates is because the current step is a VERY long one, with little in the way of interesting updates!

However, this one does seem interesting enough to post.

I'm nearly finished painting the base colours onto the walls and floor of all the board sections.

http://nedius.webs.com/photos/3D-Space-hulk-Board/3D_space_hulk_2.JPG

It've done three layers of green, and four layers of grey to white on the floors. This will mean that very soon I have the whole of the 'mission 1' phase of the board painted to what I'll consider 'tabletop' standard. It'll look fine for playing games in at my LGW, but all the detail work and weathering will still need to be done.

Here's a close view for the work so far.

http://nedius.webs.com/photos/3D-Space-hulk-Board/3D_space_hulk_3.JPG

You can see that the fans, vents etc all still need doing. The walls and floor also need weathering, and all the decorative details need to be done.

An upcoming, and very silly, part of the project, will be the £80 board section... Simmilar to my cathedral section, but instead of having little statues, it will have two of the big SM statues instead. Will look spectacular. But be insanely expensive! Ah well!

03-04-2010, 20:50
That's what's going to make it up to the £80.

2 x Shrine of the Aquilla - £40
2 x Honoured Imperium (statues) - £30
1 x modular movement tray - £6

The remaining £4 will go on plasticard for doing various plinths etc.

Actually, after next week, I have a week off in which I'm planning on seriously hitting the painting - doing all the details, the bronze work and weathering. With be another long job, but I have five days. Will probably not be enough!

14-04-2010, 12:21
Oh my -

This is astonishing. I thought that FW's Anphelion base captured the real look of 40k bases/ships, but you've outdone them. It's all full of detailed splendour, painted the way it should be. Also, that ol' sergeant as a statue is good, painted great and placed even better. The 2nd ed. marines, boring as they appear to us youngsters who wasn't there back in the days (the Rogue Trader marines does not appear boring at all, though, and should be reproduced en masse for the sake of a jubilee or just pure awesomeness - me want beakies), finds an excellent use as statues; I've found it myself out as I, along with my brother, tried to spice up a Cities of Death ruin.

What more can I say?

Hello all!

I'm pleased to share a piece of work done for me by my friend Ali. She's a Space Wolf fan, and she agreed to help me paint my dead marine!

The image is my modelled version of an image from the Deathwing suppliment for the 1st edition of Space Hulk. However, I knew that I'd be completely unable to do this dead Space Wolf justice! Step in Ali!

Ali has done a great job, and I love the look of this! It's not finished yet (it still needs more battle damage, and perhaps a bit of weathering - Will have to do puppy eyes at Ali...).

Anyway, just a nice little update!

Lucky you to get such a good Space Wolf painted for you by your friend! I think it needs some defining shades in the armour joint between the feet and the legs, and some pack markings on the shoulder pad and, or, the knee pads. Also, the underside of the boots could do with some metal and dirt.

This project is getting better all the time. :)

nedius
01-05-2010, 22:43
People keep going on about the cost, but it's really not that much more expensive than a big army!

How much does a 2000pt army cost? Or even a 3k-4k apocalypse army? People still have those!

Besides, you don't go for the whole thing in one go, you start with just a few sections. One Imperial Sector box and a few modular movement trays will set you back £60-ish and give you enough stuff to make several sections - enough for a small 40k base that would let you play some of the Anphelion base missions. Then, as I've done, just add new sections as and when you've the time and money. I've still only got half the total number of board bits I need for a complete set, but to be honest, I may never get that far. A small mission like Suicide Mission nicely fills a table!

Pleas though, as mentioned before, please don't add led's to the base, it just screws up the paint job and while it might look cool at night it just looks stupid during the day, Perhaps some smashed and burn't out led's though on the wall?

ok... I probably won't. At the moment, I'm trying to finish a few board sections - the library and some shorter corridor sections.

My current plans are:
finish painting and weathering
finish partly made board section
build my 'big' room (the £80 one described earlier)
Buy another Imperial Sector to make more corridors and junctions

I will confess to slow progress recently due to work pressures and other 40k projects (I keep getting distracted by genestealers...).

Hello once again!

It's coming to the end of term, and as a teacher I've found myself very busy with little in the way of modeling time! However, to prove that this is still an on-going project, here's some of my latest work!

http://www.freewebs.com/nedius/photos/3D-Space-hulk-Board/Space%20Hulk%20Library%208.JPG

This has been a LONG process. I need too many books for the shelves for bitz websites to have enough, so I've been making them using thin plasticard. It takes a suprisingly long time to make 10-12 (which is what I tend to make as a batch), and it takes 17-24 to fill a shelf. And there are 9 shelves, 32 cubby holes, and so on.

http://www.freewebs.com/nedius/photos/3D-Space-hulk-Board/Space%20Hulk%20Library%205.JPG

So, a long haul piece of work. However, the room itself is finished, so can be painted, and each self glued in place as and when I finish one! It will be a few weeks before I can get shots of this (end of term, wedding and honeymoon will sort of fill that time...), but hopefully they'll come soon enough.

More pics, including a closer view of the selves above and several WIP shots, are available in my 3D Space Hulk Gallery (http://www.freewebs.com/nedius/apps/photos/album?albumid=6771816&pagesize=60&page=2).

Seeing this, I think this would be great for a Deathwatch Roleplaying campaign... it's almost too awesome to be "wasted" just for Spacehulk.

nedius
11-07-2010, 19:53
There's the beauty - it's not just space hulk - I use it for 40k and necromuda too!

Aulbath
11-07-2010, 19:59
Yeah, I guessed so. However, this piece is so full of character and detail it's a shame it's just "terrain" when it could be a living, breathing backdrop to a story. Oh, the possibilites.
You most likely know about it, but I am going to post it anyway: http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_minisite.asp?eidm=50&enmi=Dark%20Heresy

Really, this library is my favourite piece so far... I love all the details, I can already imagine intresting people that gangers or others would encounter in a room like this.

Will you paint this like it's just abandoned or has something BAD happened there?

nedius
11-07-2010, 21:20
One of the sets of shelves are wrecked, as if something crashed into them and the shelves collapsed! So something happened here. Just not sure what yet.

Nedius,

Nedius, I truly would LOVE to see a tutorial on you site on how you built that room. Moreso, the shelves and the individual books. I want to make a "Wizard's Study" for a diorama, and what you did was very similar to what I had in mind.

Very inspirational.

and if you want LEDs do some LEDs in the future...you don´t have to have the powered up during games, just the possebility to make the corridors glow in the dark and make the horror feeling complete is worth it...

and this plog is subscribed ;)

Really nice work, i do like the simple things on the terrain that really make it stand out such as the pile of shell casings and the blood splatter.

Nice use of the older marines as statues, people have always said what can i use them for no they look like statues (hey presto the idea I never thought of)

Thanks for all the comments guys! I'm afraid I've not had any time to do any work on this, nor will I for a week or two (weddings and honeymoons tend to get in the way of such things!).

However, then I'll be finishing the library and beginning some of the new sections discussed so far!

Absolutely amazing log. Reminds me why I should spend more time browsing the various project log subforums. The whole project just oozes more and more character with every new and unique section you add. Very nice work.

nedius
08-11-2010, 20:47
Hi guys, thanks for the continued interest!

I'm afraid that I am somewhat skint at the moment, which means I've not had much money to buy new bits to finish new sections, hence the delay!

I have some pics of the board in use at my local GW that I will hunt out and add, as well as some of the detail work on the interior done on some sections.

Deffgob
08-11-2010, 20:58
whats great about it is that you can make one room or corridor at a time, and finish it completely, before you get materials to make another! so there is progression and time to save up while working!, im in love with this project :D ..and skint as well! so no corridor castle/ship for me just yet :D

Edit: any thoughts on what rooms you might add in the future?

Vermin_King
09-11-2010, 02:58
Did you ever figure out the toilet deal? If you've seen the movie The Rock, they have an excellent scene where the Seals come up in the prison bathroom. I don't think that on a ship that they would have gravity fed fixtures, but who knows. I imagine a bank of sinks in the middle, troughs along one wall, squatters like in the old Eastern Bloc rest areas along another. It would be an open playing area with the bank of sinks acting as cover.

But that was several pages back. Maybe that idea has been dropped.

Great looking stuff thus far.
Only thing I see that (to me) needs altering is the dead marine.
For one he looks far too shiny and his right hand is currently gripping just a bolter handle, complete with the trigger guard, swapping his hand out and weathering him shouldn't really be that much work ;)

Bumped into this thread quite accidentally but I have to say Nedius without any amount of hyperbole, you are an inspiration.
I've spent a little bit of time flicking through your site as a friend of mine found it and is using it as a reference for his own set of 3D Space-Hulk tiles.
Pictures of these constructions do them little justice as the handful he's made so far (or at least had done when I last visited him a wee bit before Christmas), fair blew my socks off.

Good Work Fella :D

A suggestion for quickly making books could be - do you need to make every book completely?

I was thinking if you could cut round plastic tube in half and glue them side to side it would appear like a row of books? You could then just maybe add some small strips at various places to make them appear bound differently? Just a suggestion.

drmarco

Nedius...

Stumbled across this thread recently and I just have to throw some major kudos your way. It's rare to come across a modelling blog or thread that consistantly inspires, but this is one such thread. The project is clearly a labour of love for you, and the subtle level of detail is commendable.
It reminds me of a modern take on what good old Heroquest tried to do, with the library in particular harking back to the 'furnished dungeon' idea, and although this makes it an awesome setting for 40k games, it's clearly a Space Hulk player's dream...and as many others have suggested, would even make a beautiful setting for a 28mm scale inquisitor or ffg role-play game...

Congratulations on the recent nuptials, and while I and many others eagerly await the next installment don't feel pressured - model as the notion takes you, as I'd hate to see this project burn out before you have every Space Hulk tile represented! :D

Finally a massive thank you for taking the time and effort to share this with your fellow modellers...like I said, it's been an inspiration, and as such I hope to undertake a similar project soon - but your explanations and guides on what has (or hasn't!) worked for you are greatly appreciated. Please keep the 'how to' and step-by-step pics coming, if even just on your own blog...for instance - how the heck did you manage to build those wonderfully gothic shelves? What thickness plasticard was involved? And what was used to make the shrunken pistol's 'plinth'?

Good luck!

Marco

Well, I have finally got round to doing more work on the set!

However, I was far too efficient and tidied up after myself a bit too thoroughly...

I had made seven 'new' tiles for the set - small one square sections to represent entry points, using the circular hole floor tiles from the shrine of the aquilla set. But I then tidied them all away, so you'll have to wait for pics of those.

All is not lost; I did leave one section out - the off-set four way junction room.

http://nedius.webs.com/photos/3D-Space-hulk-Board/S7001847.JPG

Not, in itself, that intresting... What is a bit more interesting are the two servitor stations that will be located in it! Here's the nearly completed first one.

http://nedius.webs.com/photos/3D-Space-hulk-Board/S7001842.JPG

If you'd like to have a go yourself, here are the bits for the second awaiting construction:

Ok, here are some shots of two of the entry points.

I'm quite pleased with them. They are better for the board than little purple arrows. :-)

Here's the first:

http://nedius.webs.com/photos/3D-Space-hulk-Board/S7001859.JPG

http://nedius.webs.com/photos/3D-Space-hulk-Board/S7001860.JPG

The brown stuff is coco-matting from planters (you can also get it as pet bedding). It looks good, but it awful to work with. The fibres were very stiff, and not very easy to manipulate, even when soaked in a watered down PVA. The smooth plastic was also a bad medium for sticking the PVA to. So it isn't very strongly attached.

http://nedius.webs.com/photos/3D-Space-hulk-Board/S7001861.JPG

I currently have seven entry points, most are something like the second one, or are waiting to be decorated. Might try greenstuffing some tyranid-ish polyps or growths on some, see how those turn out.

Hmm... interesting idea. I was going to try just really thin rolled greenstuff... That might be an interesting alternative.

I will, but I'm not quite there yet. There are a few pics earlier on that show most of what I've got, as I've not done much work for some time. However, once I've got a fair few more sections done and painted up, I'll post some more 'full set' pics.

I like the idea of the video though, will have to see how I can make that work.

Great log. I'm more into the fantasy stuff (Heroquest/Warhammer Quest) myself but I can always appreciate a great terrain project. I like all the thought that you've put into the individual sections - like the wires sticking out, the grim statues flanking the corridor, and the ammo shells all over the floor. Subbed.

if you want really customizable tendrils hot glue stretched out then glued in place with superglue. i remember reading about that on a cool or not mini diorama.

Must be quick, so can't post too much.

But here's a couple of the first WIP shots for my Chaos room - a T junction room being used as a chaos shrine:

http://memberfiles.freewebs.com/98/11/43411198/photos/3D-Space-hulk-Board/S7001865.JPG

http://memberfiles.freewebs.com/98/11/43411198/photos/3D-Space-hulk-Board/S7001868.JPG

The star is cut from 1mm plasticard. I tried to make it look sort of rough - hewn and broken look, as if it's constructed from sections of bulkhead salvaged to create the chaotic icon.

More WIP shots to come later.

Daniel36
12-01-2012, 13:37
Yeah man, the infestation thing already looks cool. The Chaos Shrine looks nice as well.

I want to ask, have you tried using this for Necromunda at all? And if so, is it just as fun as playing a game of Necro with different floors, as people keep saying is a must in Necromunda?

I want to know because I have always wanted to do something not unlike this for Necro, but if it turns out not to be that much fun, I won't bother.

12-01-2012, 17:05
Ok, here's the rest of the current WIP shots. There will be questions at the end!! :p

http://memberfiles.freewebs.com/98/11/43411198/photos/3D-Space-hulk-Board/S7001869.JPG

Walls all in place, ready for decorating. Lots to chaos-ift inside! I would have gone for a four way room, but, as I hope you'll see lower down, I needed a long wall section for part of my decoration idea.

http://memberfiles.freewebs.com/98/11/43411198/photos/3D-Space-hulk-Board/S7001873.JPG

For the outside, I want the room to blend in with the rest of the set, so didn't want to alter the outside apperance too much. However, I have tried to make it look like someone has hacked away att all the Imperial Icongraphy, smashing off the face of the statue holding the now defaced Inquisitorial plaque. The Aquilla has also been partially hacked away.

Now, the question.

For part of the decoration, I want a large chaos 'relic' - in this case a skull from the big ogre monster that I think looks nicely chaotic. This is why I needed the long wall. My current plan is to mount it up near the top of the wall, lashed there with chains and spikes, in a position like the image below:

http://memberfiles.freewebs.com/98/11/43411198/photos/3D-Space-hulk-Board/S7001875.JPG

However, as I was resting it on the floor, doing something else, I saw it and quite liked the effect...

http://memberfiles.freewebs.com/98/11/43411198/photos/3D-Space-hulk-Board/S7001877.JPG

Now I'm torn... resting on the floor, as if it is eating away and the floor tiles themselves, or lashed to the walls? If it were on the floor, I may make it look as if it had fallen there from the walls, but I'm not sure... Any thoughts? You may help me make up my mind.

Daniel36
12-01-2012, 19:00
Hmmm.... You may only read my thoughts if you promise to answer my previous question! :)

While I was looking at the Chaos star and the 4 arrows pointing towards the corners of the room, I thought a really cool thing would be if there were 4 sacrificed corpses, all completely torn to shreds and fully gored up, in those corners, the arrows pointing towards them as if it's some kind of Chaos sacrifice.

I think that particular skull is a little too big for that room myself, but that is really just a matter of opinion. In any case, I can't really help you decide on what to do with that specific bit, which I will admit is really nice and does deserve to be used.

nedius
12-01-2012, 22:30
Sorry! the necromunda question! Basicly, no, I've not used it for necromunda. I've not had an active gang for years. That said, a few friends of mine have talked about using it for games of necromunda if we ever start up a campaign. I'd like to try it. I've certainly used it for small 40k skirmishes (400pts or less), and they were great fun! The set as it was before I built more stuff filled 3/4 of a 4 by 4 table, so was just about right.

As for the skull, it is big, but is very cool, and I like the idea of it lashed somewhere or other. The idea of the sacrifical corpses is a good one. Will have to see how I could do them... Zombie bits?

How about something inbetween lashed in and nomming? (Has come to l life and is trying to tear free... perhaps a ritual went horribly wrong...) as for corpses/cultists the WHFB zombie kits, Empire militia, Cadian IG, and Flagellant kits would probably have some suitable components to scavenge.

So glad to see this thread alive and kicking.

Re the Chaos room, I'd vote for the skull chained to the wall, then you'll have floor space below for candles, skull piles, etc etc

Also like the idea of the remains of sacrificial victims in corners

This is simply a phenomenal piece! I cant believe I just stumbled upon this now. As others have said before, your work is truly an inspiration!

i vote for the skull to go on the floor but turn it into an altar sort of thing were they leave offerings and the like but sumat would have to go up on the wall maybe a strapped up corpse or a warp thing embedded in it (also if on floor put candles on it with wax dripping down the sides)
awesome work so far but how long before we see some ork sections? they like space hulks too....

I think with greenstuff work to make it look almost part of the ship, deamonic almost, it will look better eating the floor!

Now I'm torn... resting on the floor, as if it is eating away and the floor tiles themselves, or lashed to the walls? If it were on the floor

Four options jump to my mind.

1: Mounted on an altar/plinth sufficiently low enough for the cultists to get some face-time with it.

2: On the floor with suitable decoration behind it (Chaos Star-Halo, gibbets, corpses ect) to highlight the fact it's exactly where the evil spiky fung shui says it should be and hasn't dropped onto the floor thankyouverymuch!

3: Lashed to the wall with a small altar or fane under it (with tributes/sacrifices still in place). Possibly issuing gore or otherwise doing things statues do when they've got chaos all over them, perhaps with glowy eye sockets..

4:Growing out of the wall, like #3 but with extra grimdark-sinister-evil (and Greenstuff). Perhaps it's a very slow manifestation, gradually pushing through.....




Good to see you back dude. Keep it coming.

Just got the ForgeWorld newsletter in my mailbox and their update instantly reminded me of your amazing project... Seems you've been a source of inspiration for somebody:shifty: Keep up the good work, even though their stuff is nice, it's nowhere near as cool as yours!

I guess I have to add more positively connotated words to my vocabulary.

Alright... this project is stunning, amazing and tremendous. Oh, and of course breathtaking. :D

some fantstic detailing and ideas, looks really cool

Regarding the ogre-beastie-skull: to keep it focal, I'd say have it lashed to the wall at height, as that reinforces the icon/relic aesthetic in this little section. That should also avoid it pulling focus too much from the detailing at ground level.

Furthermore - totally concur with the 'sacrifices' in the cardinal points/room corners...perhaps have each showing signs of death befitting the chaos powers (one corpse missing a head, one covered in sores, one twisted/mutated, and one with daemonette claw wound/slaanesh symbol drawn in blood/a really big smile on its face...).

Thanks again for taking the time to share,

Marco

More please! Love the Chaos room - I think the skull should be chained up on the wall.

Nedius! Did you settle on a place for the Ogre-gribbly skull?

Hey Nedius - picture links seem to have died, and your freewebs site seems to have become lost in the warp...

Heartbreaking, as I was just about to start my own rip-off of your ossum work so far :)

Any chance you could check out the picture source/add pics to the thread here from elsewhere?

Cheers,

Marco

A very very well thought out project this. What has impressed me most is the cleanness of the cuts. What type of knife are you using im betting that it is razor sharp.
