    Hello Everyone

    I've set up this thread to share some of the warhammer related woodworking projects I have created. The plan is to share pictures of completed projects, works in progress and possibly even some abandoned projects.

    I don't have any Lizardmen specific projects at the moment, but I hope to add a few in the future. So at the moment, these terrain pieces represent pathetic structures built by the lesser races, ready to be destroyed at the whim of the cold-blooded denizens of Lustria!

    I look forward to hearing your thoughts, critiques and feedback.


    Cheers,

    Nightbringer

    As a start, I figured I'd share some pictures of the painting shelf I designed and built a few months back. I made it entirely from scrape/garbage wood that I picked up for free. The only piece had to purchase was a $9 swivel wheel (which allows it to be rotated) from Home Depot.

    It measures 12"x12"17 and holds a total of 104 paints and 20 paint brushes. It also has a removal top, revealing a central storage compartment that I use to store undercoat cans and other random assorted hobby stuff.

    Although it is very handy for keeping all my supplies organized, I'm ashamed to admit that it has not expedited my painting projects. :sorry:

    Let me know what you think :happy:

    Thanks. My paints used to be all over the place, they really build up over time.

    Looks lovely, although I'd probably get it splattered in paint eventually!

    That looks great, I like the Mark of Tzeench. Very cool :)

    Gotta get me something like that. I also make a mess all over my table with painting, cutting & gluing.

    Thanks JamJar! I'm glad you like the Tzeentch symbol, I didn't think it would get a "warm" reception from the cold-blooded denizens of Lustria.

    So, do you have any terrain yet

    Sadly I only have one completed terrain piece at the moment (and none of the Lizardmen variety :(). I'll be posting the pictures soon.

    I do have about 3 or 4 terrain pieces currently in progress though! :)

    If I could do woodworking like this I would refrain from spoiling it with paint.

    Below are pictures of the "Chaos Bane Stone" I made. The rock spire is carved from pine, and the base is made from red cedar. The skulls on the ground and the buried shield are bits from the Warhammer basing kit.

    Let me know what you think. :)

    I cut the basic shape with my scroll saw. Then I used my rotary tool to refine the shape and add in the finer details.

    Thanks!! :)

    They are easy enough to make, but quite time consuming (at least with the tools and techniques I currently employ). Plus it produces a ton of sawdust!! :eek::eek::eek:
