So, I've been on a Terrain kick recently. Probably should be getting ready for the incoming Tyranid codex, but my minds been elsewhere since I'm waiting to see the final stats on things in the Codex before deciding what new stuff I want. So, I've picked up a few terrain kits for myself, including a 2 Imperial Strongpoints, a Blastscape (that was malformed and I'm going to need to fix), a Battlescape, and now a Fortress of Redemption and 2 Imperial Sectors.
Eventually I'm going to get Shrines of the Aquila, a Skyshield Landing Pad, a few Citadel Woods, hill, modular hill, and down the line a Realm of Battle Board. Given the cost of all of it, I was originally going to try doing my own terrain and modular board out of masonite and pink board. But the more I've been thinking about it the more I'm liking the terrain GW puts out, and over time I can afford to get it, and it's going to save me time which is the thing I don't have all that much of right now between work and school. Eventually I'll be putting together some home made tyranid terrain pieces to go with it if GW doesn't put out something before then (I'm not a huge fan of the FW tyranid spore chimneys). But that's a while off.
Anyway, long and short is, I'm going to be putting up my work on it all here. The plan is to put together a jungle themed set of boards and ruins and woods. The ruins will go with an eventual Imperial Army I'm planning on putting together too. When I finally get to basing my Tyranids and the Imperial stuff it'll be themed appropriately for the board and other terrain. It's an ambitious project, and I'm aware it's going to take a long damn time to get it all done, probably with times I get a stuff done and stretches where I don't because I'm too busy. But it'll be fun and in the end I'll manage to have a nice set of stuff I hope that can be used for regular games, Apocalypse, Planetstrike, and Cities of Death games.
I'll be putting up pictures in the appropriate slots as I build stuff, get it based, painted, and flocked. Hopefully this will be a pretty good log of my terrain progress.
