    After a long hiatus, this wip kinda speaks for itself. Cardboard and glue (plus it will requires sand and paint).

    Desert terrain it will be! (with multiple pieces, of course)

    Back to buildings! (well, a small fortified position)

    materials:
    polystirene (a piece of… something, destined to trash.)
    glue
    newsday paper
    some metal wire, recovered from the spiral holding a 2020 calendar
    various bits


    Here's the WIP

    as you can see the starting material was too good to throw away, as it's almost ready and requires just a minimal work

    WIP 1.jpg

    after some work…

    WIP 2.jpg

    almost ready to be painted. please note the "hole" in the turret, for the placement of the Admech weaponry.

    wow. the last update here was one year ago.

    One thing i lack is forests. THey are useful for basically any game, be it 40k, fantasy, hystorical (bolt action, black powder)...

    i stumbled upon a green mat that once was used to cover a working desk and (now that the desk was no more) it was literally being thrown away in the garbage.
    It couldn't be. not given that i even have an official GW base for woods.

    1_base.jpg

    i was able to cut 13 pieces of terrains... not bad, it would be enough even for a full-jungle scenario.

    THen i was able to recover some very old square tile with trees, many of them snapped, which were laying in a forgotten box in our gaming store basement.
    "nice, can i take them?" "sure, go for it".

    and now...

    yes, it's not that great and yes, it can (and will) be improved... but i've paid only the cost of the glue and 2-3 hours of work.

    I think it looks pretty good already. Some more simple work will make it great.

    Great work already. This will make the table look good very quickly.

    OK, this one is literally the cheapest one (and also the laziest. no work at all).


    Anyway, a couple of evenings ago when i was taking out the bag of plastic waste, i found that someone threw away a couple of (still perfectly fine) old CD holder, which were laying over the other plastic bags, ready to been taken away the morning after.

    These are the items:

    0_PortaCD.jpg


    But are they really CD holders?

    ...an Imperial hangar outpost?

    1_imperial hangars.jpg


    a Necrons' gauss energy conduit?

    2_Gauss conduit.jpg

    3_Gauss conduit.jpg


    They are battle ready!
    Maybe I'm going to just add some metallic grey on the "ribs", or maybe i will add a internal cover so you won't see through it.

    Nothing wrong with being lazy ;)
    It is very effective!

    Great idea

    Excellent idea, I've been thinking about how I can make some Necron terrain and I like this a lot!

    If they're meant to be energy conduits, how about a copper colour to look like a transformer coil?
