Hey guys, with 8th edition coming out and my enthusiasm for the game skyrocketing again, I am really excited to be playing games at my own house for the first time. I finally got off my butt and bought some MDF for a gaming board
I have three 24x48" sections of 1/2" MDF, which sit on my roommate's dining room table beautifully. It's a 54x54" table so even with all three sections on there it's only hanging off the sides by 9". I will be getting a gaming mat to lay on top, but I'm not sure if I want one of the good green ones GW made recently, or if I want a brown mat to match the scenery a little bit better. It would also make things look a bit less silly when I make some Chaos Wastes and Khemri scenery (two of the armies I like, don't have the Khemri painted yet but if they get any releases soon I'll be ready!!). Anyway that's another couple of days before I need to start worrying about that.
For scenery that's built and ready to go, I have more than I need for one gaming table. I've got a few more tree stands than I have in these images, plus the 40k stuff. For Fantasy I have an outhouse, small cart, Dwarf mine entrance, graveyard, Chaos temple thingy that got painted darker colors and now needs dead grass and snow effects. Maybe some bitz to add some contrast too. 2 lava pools as well to match the Chaos temple (also needs snow and dead grass still).
Not a bad variety, but nowhere near enough! With the cool new rules I need to make a swamp, quicksand, and some of the other cool stuff too. I really want to make a bit of Khemri and Dwarf scenery, maybe another 1-2 Chaos looking things too. The floating rock with runes etc. on the top from the VFBRB is pretty awesome and I'll probably draw some inspiration from that. From my GW redshirt days I made some interesting projects (like a Dwarf stronghold, Chaos shrines, flying magical obelisks etc.) and I'm sure I'll be able to come up with something neat.
I think I have an Ork watch tower in progress that's being stored in my parents' basement along with my scenery making supplies. They never made the trip to the new apartment yet. The very beginnings of a Tilean leaning tower as well, pretty much the base and the stairs leading up to/around the base of the tower are done, but the tower itself never got built.
For 40k I have a 2nd edition 40k Bastion and Ork fort (can't remember the exact name but it's gorgeous) and a couple other random things like a Forgeworld Pillbox w/ sandbag emplacements around it, some generic barricades, 2 sets of Ork barricades to go with the fortress (not painted yet) and the Inquisitor hab block I have works too. I have a Chimera bunker somewhere that's not quite painted yet.
More to come as I get stuff done, I'll try to take some pics of the 40k stuff some time soon as well. In the meantime I intend to break the table in with a game ASAP
