    Cities of Death!!! By Iron Kid

    Boom Boom!!

    This is my second thread started today because I figured out how to transfer pictures on to my computer. Finally!!

    The goal to this board was to have a dense terrain setup but have the ability to store it as well. I also wanted to do it right as well and put quality and effort into the project. So I went modular. I got the idea of putting buildings on individual 1 foot by 1 foot boards from the games workshop modular board article (but it's no longer on the website). In fact many of the buildings are heavily inspired by this old Games Workshop article. I also cut thes 1 foot by 1 foot boards in half and even in quarters to allow more versitility.

    The reason why I am posting this thread is to get support from members on this website to help me finally finish this 4 year project (yes it's embarrassing that it's taking this long!).

    And so here are my first few buildings that are completed:

    Nice use of the old start set ruins. The whole lot is very good.

    Btw 4 years is nothing. With the exception of myself and one other club member, I can see you have already done more terrain than the rest of my club put together.. Well there are only like 4 others, but still!

    Re: Cities of Death!!! By Iron Kid

    Hello everyone

    Just a quick update of the cities of death table:

    I have been doing a lot of work on my space marine army but wanted to put some time in to my city. Below is a two block build that can either be put together to make a large construct or put seperatley. The idea behind this, was to make a place where infantry could hide out and fire at each other. I wanted the architecture to have a number of buildings and towers that were connected by catwalks with an open area or courtyard in the middle. This would be an ideal place for snipers, heavy weapons squads, and troops that shoot but need cover.

    As you can see, the first building is almost completely finsihed while the second is still a work in progress. For the second part of the structure, I wanted to expand the courtyard giving a really open space. I also wanted to have a large tower that would be located a level up from the eagle doors. The clocks hands would be able to be changed to notify the players of what turn they are on. the tower will also have an arched roof with a large hole in it to create an ideal snipers nest.

    Here are the pictures of the building/ buildings so far:

    Hello, again!!

    After a long and difficult semester, I can finally restart my terrain making and modeling now that I have little else to do!

    Below are a few pictures of an up and coming addition to the cities of death board- a demolished rhino tank!! Enjoy

    Hey, guys

    Good news! I figured out my posting problem and will continue to put updates up with full sized pictures.

    Below is a separate terrain piece I am working on. It's a satellite dish that can act as an objective, stratagem, and just a cool piece of terrain

    This will be the building where it could be mounted on. Notice how it's a half tile (rectangle) in comparison to the other buildings:

    Re: Cities of Death!!! By Iron Kid

    Thanks for the advice, Shanks! I originally had the ruined sides but took them off- I will probably replace them though!

    A little update on the ruined tank:

    I made a base for the ruined tank big enough to fit the open door and have a rubble pile at the front (as if the tank was caught up in a bunch of it)

    I also used a drill to make holes and a sander to give the look of decay for the tank:

    Hello, everyone!

    As promised, I've uploaded photos of my new building

    This is the front of the building. I will plan to build two to three additional levels on top of this one:

    Here, you can see the entrance from the building to the court yard. The door was from a warhammer building. It is as different height compared to the cities of death walls, so I am planning on making a bit of a balcony on top of the shorter wall:

    This building is becoming very tedious to build. There are a variety of angles and hieghts that I have to take into account; I still want to have a tower with a "V" like roof coming out of the middle of the structure. This tower will have a clock and I am planning to use it as a functional turn- counter while playing games.

    Hope you guys like it!

    Hey, guys

    I have finally finished the demolished rhino! All that needs to be done now is priming and painting and finally adding the dead tank crew member and the interior door.

    I am really happy with how this turned out and I am looking forward to painting it!

    I am currently in the process of painting the rhino interior door. There are a number of monitors and screens on this. Does anyone know of some good tips on painting monitors and screens?

    Hope you guys enjoy this and let me know what you think!

    Regards,

    Hello, everyone!

    A little update on my Cities of death board:

    Here is some progress I've made on my double building:

    As you can see, it's a pretty tough build just because of the different dimensions and angles of the buildings. Buut I should be done by the end of December (remember, I am working on like three other projects!)

    I also finished the build of my Cathedral. All that is left is some rubble details, sanding, and painting; I will do this when all of the buildings are at this stage:
