    My Space Hulk Project

    Hi All,

    I started this project 3 years as my reintroduction to tabletop gaming ( 25 year absence until a mate started 40K ),I originally quit playing just after Spacehulk's original release ( had Deathwing & Genestealer add ons ) and back then I always regretted not having a fully painted game and also would have liked to try making a 3D board,fast forward to present day and with all the amazing options available to Modelers today I got cracking on trying to right some wrongs of my youth.This is how far I am along with things,I still have to do a single T,L and X corridor section and have 2 T rooms to construct and a further 2 corner rooms to paint,I find that I work in fits and spurts with this and therefore cannot say how well or often for that matter I will update this thread,I just felt that given the lack of any recent activity here this might help stimulate some chatter ? Enough rambling here's the pics.....

    I thought the yellow piping would work with the grey ( thank you Space wolves )

    Included some overpass piping to restrict taller minis if used ( Eldar War walkers etc...)

    Although I'd already purchased the 2009 'stealers ( twice thanks to re-re-release ) I couldn't resist "the Spawn of Cryptus"

    Industrial piping breaks up the monotony a bit

    If you look closely you'll see I still have a LOT of tidying up to do

    But for now I'm happy enough to just try to get last pieces done

    P.S this is my first thread so forgive the shoddy layout

    Great job! Colors look nice and vibrant. Can't justify the (time) investment for something like this, but must be tons of fun to play with it.

    How do you store it by the way?

    Wonderful! I'm jealous on multiple levels. And, except for a lack of talent and desire, I could do this, if I had the time. OK, I might have the time, but those first two deficiencies are persistent. Again, great work!

    Khastarax I managed to get 2 long plastic under bed trays that seem to fit everything comfortably and I think If I was1 stuck I could stack on top off each other in the larger of the 2 trays.I have snooker table baize cloth stuck to the bottom of the board pieces so I can put them on any surface without stressing about marking it and likewise all the minis bases.Funnily enough I still haven't had a single game of spacehulk yet ?
    when I started project I swore I wouldn't play till everything was done,that entails all board pieces,all minis and no cardboard markers whatsoever so nearly there,I may do a video and post link when I am happy to show.
    The reason it's taken this long is that you get fatigued from plaster casting ( minimum 40 hours,as much as 70-80 ),likewise the build is almost double that and the painting don't even start me.So long breaks from it have been frequent to say the least,I do a few days every few months.
    I may have bitten off more than I could chew ,particularly as my re introduction to hobby but hoping when I play first few games it will have been worthwhile :-)

    Have you tried to use this piece of art in a real game? It should be so immersive!
