I'm a newbie on these forums, and decided to post some pictures of the terrain I've been building. I have been a lurker for years, and finally decided to post some pictures of what I've been working on. I have been inspired by a lot of what I've seen on here, and I am hoping I can inspire other people with what I build. I have been building terrain for about 15 + years and have enjoyed avery minute of it. These are all pieces I made for a huge table we did last month with about 16 or 17 people playing ont it. It was a huge H shaped table that we all played on.

Good stuff.
Excellent mixture of CoD parts, Hexagon/Platformer, and random items.
everything is well painted and weathered. very playable.

Very nice work! Not too dull or flashy but can blend with almost any table I can think of. Looks a lot like GW's old terrain, from the old rulebooks and stuff, but... better built, ya know, not of paper? I think they are awesome. Especially the landing pad/large one on the end and the tower (snipers :D )

Very good stuff you have there. The one on the fourth pic seems big :)

Wow, this stuff is excellent! :) You've made superb use of parts from various ranges. I only hop that when I get started on Industrial terrain in a few weeks time it comes out looking somewhere nearly as good as yours! :) :cool:

I really like your terrain. I'd love to have industrial terrain of that quality!

And the main thign is it's big as industrial things like factories tend to be. They'd make great objectives!

You know at first I thought it might have been an epic landraider until I looked at the parts more closely!

Great terrain, what sort of coverage do you get with the set? And is that an entire Imperial sector used in the fourth pic?!?

Great looking stuff there. I'd be proud to have my boyz battling across that terrain.

Whoa jeez! Is that fourth one photoshopped in? I dont know why I did not notice that earlier, I guess my mind just said it was not feasible for terrain that big so subconciously dismissed it. Seriously amazing scale.

Hey guys it's great to see that this terrain is appriciated. Supershot05- There is probably more than an imperial sector in that piece. I cheated a little with all the parts, but we won't get into that here. The lamdraider was scratch built before games workshop did there new one. I am disgusted by how over priced there stuff is so try to scratch build some of my tanks etc. It is truly a massive piece. This is just one part of the massive table I did for our anual get together. I live in Wyoming, and when the entire state has only about 500,00-600,000 people in the entire state you can imagine how many people actually game. I will post pictures of the whole table next.

I got the pictures of the full table resized hope they shed some lifgt on the scale of this project. We all had a great time playing on this monster. As with all of our large games like this one, there can be some problems with playability, but that is just because of the amount of people and number of miniatures involved.

Awesome stuff. Some of the best scenery I have seen to be perfectly honest. I love it, there is so much happening and you can't really look at any piece and say "thats GW " or "thats hexagon". YOu have done good sir!

I wanted to get the picture up of the huge mape that a buddy of mine painted for me. This is going to be our campaign map for all future games in our little group (hopefully). I haven't gotten the planet named yey, let alone the continents. I'm trying to come up with something original and unique. The basic Idea is that an object (?) from space hit on the major continent thousands of years ago, and the Adeptus Mechanicus, and Inquisition both found something they are intersted in. They are of course not letting anyone else in on there little secret. The massive crater has been mined for the last millinium and a huge hive city has slowly taken root in the crater over that time period. The rest of the world exists to support the mining and process centers of the hive. Huge swaths of agricultural land provide most of the food for the hive. I am still getting all the ideas together. Hopefully this explains the initial concept. I have to give a big thanks out to Scott for the map.

I have had the privalige of playing on the terrain made by Lose4good for many years. No matter what he makes it is very impressive and a joy to game on. This morning I got a very disturbing call and found out that he had past away in a car crash on his way to work. I am very sad about this. He was a very close friend and the biggest reason that I wargame. He has taught me so much about making terrain and converting miniatures. I would have never played a chaos army if it was not for him. I guess it is time to finish painting it and get it on the table. Thanks for listening. This is a tough time with the loss. We have lost one of the greatest wargamers out there and need to enjoy what he has done.

I got the call this afternoon. It hadn't really sunk in until I stumbled on this topic.

Rod was one of the most influential gamers I've ever known. He was extremely passionate about everything he did wether it was 40k, terrain, music or his family & friends. He put a piece of his soul into everything. He sold a lot of terrain in his time (I doubt theres a game shop in Utah without it) and I think it tore him up a little every time he did. The game wont be the same without him.

Rest in peace, Brother.

Gosh, I am very sorry to hear about the passing of loss4good; it's clear he was a very talented modeller/painter, and a passionate wargamer. My condolences to his family and friends at this time.

My condolences. The passing of a good friend is always an incredibly difficult thing to come to grips with. So all of you guys who knew him, good luck with the grieving... I know it's very surreal.

I can tell he gave you guys lots of added joy with his incredible terrain!
