Oh man, I remember that tower. Sweet memories of 2nd edition come back.
Here's my snow-covered Imperial Guard Command Tower:
I will try to get some shots of the whole board this weekend.
That looks great. Loving the base and the snow.
One tip though: you can paint the folding lines. That way they don't stand out that much. (I think I actually read that tip way back, when they had some Eldar pillar in the WD. I think I have it somewhere still.)
Finally I got some shots of the whole board:
With this I guess I've finished my Ice World terrain project. Wow, I did it! A big thanks to everyone that has commented and encouraged! From now on you will have to follow my adventures in my painting log (link in my sig).
Covering Fire out.
Just wanted to say thanks for reminding me of the excellent scenery of years past. I have the 2nd edition card Bastion and Ork Fortress in my collection, and my current roommate also has the old starter set scenery and Imperial Firebase. A year ago we made some neon green space cacti to complete the retro look on our tables
The IG Command Tower is now something that I will have to trawl eBay for periodically. Must have one now after seeing it again!
The throwback to WD231 with the research station is awesome, as well. It just so happens that WD231 is the second issue of WD I ever bought, just a few short months after I started getting involved in the hobby as a wee lad. Oh the memories!
Really nice terrain! Love it.
1. I find it hard to glue mesh as a flooring (because of the small contact area I guess). It just keep peeling of all over the place. Do you have any tips?
2. (sorry if this is to specific for the general blog) I've struggled to find any foamboard in Sweden. Could you direct me to a good source or how to explain it to a shopkeeper in swedish?
Really nice board and terrain, thanks for letting us follow you through this adventure

1. When I used mesh in this log I just put a thin layer of PVA glue (or Trälim in Swedish) on the surface and put the mesh in place. I then put something heavy on top and let it dry.
2. Check office supply shops or art shops. Goes by the name of foamboard or "kapaskiva", "sandwichskiva" or "cellpannå" in Swedish. Maybe this could help if you live in Umeå.
