I'll have your *bleep* on a stick for that!
In answer to some of the questions about materials and methods, here are some WIP pics from the next batch of DE terrain. After the lessons learned from the first go 'round, this set is coming together rather quickly. I hope to have them done this weekend.
Here are some of the materials used to design the components. The various coins and other round objects are for creating those smooth curvey shapes. I draw the designs on thin cardboard (cereal box or comic backer board thickness) to create a template. Scissors and a SHARP knife are a must to get things cut out. The glus stick is to temporarily attach the template to the MDF so the design is consistent.
More tools and materials for construction/detailing... glue gun, paver sand, wall filler/spackle, dremel with sanding attatchment, palm sander, and white glue.
A set of 4 barricades/obstacles plus some objective markers.
A landing pad for your raiders and ravagers!
Well, the second batch is done and I've got some pics for you all...
Well, these are up on eBay already if you want to look there http://members.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI...argamesandmore
There are also more pics on my photobucket page. Enjoy!
Had a requiest for some pieces that were a little more fantasy DE friendly.

Here is the completed set for the most recent order...
Laid out for play (landing pad is NOT for the fantasy player, I just wanted to try a new design)

a section of fencing/barricades
I hope you all enjoy these. If you have any suggestions, critiques, tips, or requests, please feel free to let me know. Thanks and stay tuned for more.
If you've still got your Ork fortress, one thing you might consider is an extra wall piece or two.
I'd built something on a similar vein a while back and discovered that you multiply the uses with at least one extra segment. Mainly because it lets you have a three long center with walls heading back. And when you have two extra ones you can lengthen the sides.
That piece went to a client a little while back. I understand what you mean though. When I get around to doing another fortress I know it will get a couple extra segments and a telly-porta. Also, I want to make a larger gate that the stompas can walk through. That probobly means no catwalk though. We'll see.
So I haven't done too much terrain of late. I have been building a HUGE Chaos Daemon army for a gentleman in Tampa. Now that that project is done, I thought that I would turn some attention back to my beloved Orks. Look for some new Orky "arkitekchur" in the coming weeks. In the mean time, I do have one newer piece for you folks to comment on... my Ork Mek Garage (wife sez that it's a barn). Enjoy!
No plan seems to survive contact with the enemy. I'm putting together some Tyranid terrain for a table at a local shop. What they want is some "man-height" hills with brood nest features. Also, because the table is supposed to represent the inside of a tryranid hive ship, he wants some large organic sacks that that large tyranids would grow in and hatch from. This won't take long as I have done some similar pieces in the past.
Here are some pics of the hills underway...

Tyranid Hill Set
sinsinatus - very nice terrain, what colour will the nid terrain be?
Can't wait for more!
I'll be matching the table for the most part. Fleshy pinks and meaty reds with some resin ooze in a milky green for accent.
Paint is this weekend so keep an eye out.
Here are the "pod" pieces for the store's tyranid table. The even grey coloring comes from using GW spray texture as a first primer. It helps blend some details together and will help keep the broad smooth surfaces from looking inorganic. Resin effects will be added after primary painting is complete.
Giant egg cluster...
Large egg cluster...
Small egg cluster...
Hatched egg cluster...
Comments and critiques welcome.
Here are some pics of the Tyranid terrain while some of the early paint is done. Still no resin or detailing done. Hope to be done PDQ.
love the ork fort, just goes to show what you can do with bits and pieces
I finished the Tyranid terrain and delivered it to the client. Here are some pics of the terrain and the finished table.
More pics can be found in the photobucket folder here.
I really like the blade things you made for your DE terrain. I'm definitely pinching that for my arcane fulcrums. Great work!
