Greetings all! So as the title suggests, for a convention taking place at the end of June (link: http://jascogames.com), my friends and I have been tasked with generating terrain for 20 Warhammer 40k tables in just under 2 months!
Can we do it? We have a very ambitious plan and after a day and a half of planning, over the weekend we bought our materials and set to work.
The pictures are somewhat blurry since we decided last minute to start a plog about our endeavor and did not bring a nice camera, further down the line the pictures will be better I promise.
First, a shot of materials and our workspace (the backroom of Jasco Games):
4' x 6' Plywood (Picture taken after some cuts were made):
We have materials to complete the first 10 tables (hopefully in time for a RTT at the end of May) and will start the last 10 in due course. With a little luck and a lot of late nights, we think we can get this done!
So we drafted up our ideas and started construction on one of the coolest (and heaviest) tables in our plans. The table will be a dense Cityfight board, most of the pieces being modular, but with a deep sewer/runoff canal running through the middle of the board. The canal will be impassable save for three strategically placed bridges across the expanse (all well guarded by pillboxes, bunkers and sandbag emplacements:
Its not easy to tell from that angle, but the table is constructed from a 4' x 6' Plywood bottom, 2x4 frame (creating a 4" deep, 6" wide canal) and plywood on top. With that secured in place by a frame around the outside edge, a 1/2" of foam will create the base for our city terrain.
We also started work on our highway table. The idea is that a large highway runs from a raised shipping platform at one side of the table and has been blown apart in the center of the table. A WIP shot of the table as it rests atop the canal table:
Other tables coming up in the near future:
Trenches (this is gonna be awesome)
Highway (more work done!)
Khorne (blood for the blood god, skulls for the skull throne!)
And many, many more!
