    Apocalypse 40k Terrain

    Its about time that I had some decent terrain, now that Apocalypse is out I thought it would be appropriate to have something big.

    I intend to be making something worth fighting for so I plan to make some tank traps, barbed wire, sentry gun towers and fortifications.

    I have always liked the Forge World Imperial Fortress but I don’t have $2000 NZD to spend so I will make my own. After a recent successful dumpster diving drive by (rear window down, stop car, grab the good bits, throw it in the back on top of the unimpressed kids) I managed to acquire enough hi-density white foam to start.

    It will be for my Space Wolves, I cant imagine them being into the big pointy towers and so will drop them in favour of more guns! maybe some Vulcan mega blasters or something, don’t plan of having an Imperial Eagle on the front gate but a Thunder Wolf instead.
    Not too sure about all of the arches either, maybe it is required to break up the walls, can make that decision later.

    About 12 foot of 75mm thick white foam later and I am at this stage, spot the space marine?

    Looks like it will be mounted on 3 x 60cm sections, and about 40cm high, a bit bigger than I originally thought!

    Stay tuned for irregular updates.

    Re: Apocalypse 40k Terrain

    Marvellous! I love a big terrain project, I take it that you have delved into the FW website for additional pictures. would I be wildly of the mark in suggesting that COD components are going to feature quite heavily here? You may consider me a frequent visitor to this thread so come on keep it going.

    Looks like you are off to a good start

    Re: Apocalypse 40k Terrain

    Wow, awesome! I look forward to seeing the rest of the terrain. Will you be making a table for this as well or is it just going to be scatter terrain? Because that would look good on a rocky snow covered board (especially as it is Space Wolves themed)

    Re: Apocalypse 40k Terrain

    I have had a look through the COD stuff on FW, some very nice ideas that I will be using if all goes to plan.

    Dont have a table yet so at the moment they with be all scatter terrain, all of my guys have a kind on desert base so the idea was to do the same for the fortress and say it is one of thier minor outposts.

    Thanks for your ideas, keep them coming.

    Small update

    I have both left and right angular wall sections cut and being PVA glued to a tall section and another straight wall section, based on 6mm hardboard, these will make the complete left and right bits, centre section will be made last, I expect the glue to take a few days to dry properly as 24 hours was not enough when I was making the first walls.

    Doing a bit of a production run cutting a lot of small fiddly bits out of 5mm foamboard, these will be used on the top of the walls where the troops will be standing behind, these bits are the uprights.

    Small Update

    Left and right walls still drying + some pics of the wall template being used to make the platforms that go on top of the angular wall sections. Must have used too much PVA as one of the boards has warped, only about 3mm, not too bad.

    Re: Apocalypse 40k Terrain

    Thanks
    I dont want it to look like the painted FW example, way too new for my liking. Going to have to do some test samples for the texture, want an ancient + weathered look, first plan will be plastering and stipling in the drying plaster and then a light sand to give it a flat look with pock marks, will have to experiment, who am I kidding, most of my terrain doesn’t get past the black undercoat stage . . .

    Would also like a bit of battle damage + the crumpled tail section of an ORK fighter boma sticking out of the base of the wall + . . . getting a bit ahead on myself I think!

    Re: Apocalypse 40k Terrain

    I think so too, especially considering I saw you eying up that Thunderbolt thread with thoughts of an airfield. And you keep trying to convince me you have no time these days

    Re: Apocalypse 40k Terrain

    Update

    Progress with both of the wall top sections, will be adding a bit of extra detailing. Top platforms are not glued down as I plan to plaster over the walls so that extra details/damage can be carved in one day.

    Re: Apocalypse 40k Terrain

    Update

    The little bits are very time consuming, this has taken AGES to do, but at least it is starting to look interesting. Still a few more details to add to the parapets.

    Lessons learnt - Little bits, make more than you need, sort them by size/shape and discard the non conformists.

    Update

    WIP pics of the guard stations that go on top of the high points on the walls, need 4 of these, all 5mm foamboard at this stage, bases will be thicker. Dividers are proving very handy for transferring measurements.
