    Forward Operating Base St Pius (Jacka's New Urban Project)

    I have now closed my old terrain log (Kasr St Pius Jacka's Urban Project) after it was destroyed during the catastrophic hacking disaster last year. The creation of the new log has been delayed because of a move to my new Forward Operating Base (Change of State) and the development of the Base (Man Cave). In this log I will continue to build on last year wok and commence my table as I now have the room.

    I have commenced building my version of FOB St Pius (Urban Terrain). I have now modified this concept of this thread because Cadia has fallen and the market has dropped out of Real Estate on Cadia.

    This has been a project that has been brewing for nearly ten years and I have been gathering all sorts of terrain for the project. It will be a complete gaming table in the end and will be based on Secret Weapon's Urban Table Scape. Those of you that follow my thread in the Warhammer 40,000 Imperium Thread will know that I have be doing some terrain projects there. Like my fellow IG Commander SDKFZ I have now decided to commence this terrain thread as the project has now gathered it own head of steam! Below is a list of what I have completed in the last two years.

    Here is my garage where the table will be built. I have an area that is 8m x 8m and is carpeted. You will note that I'm using some old rubber camping mats that the table will be placed on so that any wayward Troopers are not damaged if they fall from the table. I have lots of shelving with space for more terrain pieces as well.

    Here's the first project. I am using this terrain piece of a destroyed building to get colours right and do a couple of the Secret Weapon Urban Tiles. The buildings are pre-painted Gale Force Nine Battle in Box sets. Unfortunately these are no longer available. I will start with a black under coat then Grey dry brush of course. The building bits will be mounted on two tiles.

    So this means that the commandvehicle has to stay outdoors ?
    Awesome hobby/gaming room, Jacka ! Will be great to see how the board looks all set up in the future.
    Smart idea with the campingmats, dropping minis is alwas a real hazard, this helps alot.

    Thanks mate I like it! Of course the Command Vehicle and Mobile Base has a home (See below). See the advantages of good planning. I will be starting the board itself soon. First though a couple of test SW tiles.

    Now I need to do some work to get this thread rated! LOL!

    Got some work done today. Base coated three tiles then dry brushed and started to highlight bits. These Secret Weapon tiles are not hard work at all. Must count how many I have to do though.

    LE,

    Sorry about that mate but at least you can watch the table grow from concept to completion and then games. I'm pleased how the Gale Force Nine buildings are turning out as well.

    Well today I got a bit more done. Another five tiles base coated and the picking out of features started. The SW tiles are a dream to paint. Not sure if I will need to varnish them as that could work out expensive. I am using British Paints Flat White spray as a base coat and then doing the grey in a Dulux Paint Simone Well Grey which is a very good match for concrete. Not sure how I ended up starting of the damage urban tiles, but they seen to have worked out ok.

    Here what they look like now:

    Progress today has involved more dry brushing and some detail. I dry brushed, with Humbrol 29 Brown, all the craters and this has come out well. I thought I would pick out some red tiles on one of the masonry piles and this failed. I'll correct this tomorrow. I also did some test with vanish and I am happy with the result and will varnish all the tiles. The house paints I am using for base coats are working great. I think the Secret Weapon tiles will be finished fairly quickly. May even start on the table earlier then I thought.

    The added colour is really bringing the tiles to life.

    Out of interest, how are the tiles, do they go together well? Are they robust enough to be carted around? Any observations?

    Cheers

    The Secret Weapons tiles are much better the the GW cityscape ones. They have far less detail and are far more realistic. They are very harmonious and there is enough variety to set up many different aspects of the city. The roads are two Chimeras wide and all the footpaths handle up to 32mm bases nicely. The locking system is excellent and they are made from hard wearing plastic. They are very easy to paint. The damaged tiles are based on the undamaged tiles so you change out tiles when gaming as area are damaged by shell fire. I going to use bubble wrap bags to store them. Just the standard 15' mail bag will work a treat.

    No worries mate. You will get to see the other versions of the tiles as I paint them.

    I'm pleased how they have come out. I ended giving them all a vanish coat and that has brought the colours out even better. The house paints have work well and they are cheap as well.

    Re: Forward Operating Base St Pius (Jacka's New Urban Project)

    I have now finished the first eight SW tiles. So all up six damaged and two normal tiles. The last two will be the floor for the next building. I pinned and glued a main structure, small single piece and a corner piece to each of the tiles as this will be permanent structure. I will not do this all the time to ensure variety on the table. Hes some pictures of the finished building and roads.
