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.
