|Yes this modular bit of 40K terrain still needs some paint...|

What finally pushed me to get started on this was a mixture of slightly too much fantasy since the launch af Age of Sigmar,the trailer for Shadow War: Armageddon and a gift from a fellow hobbyist. Shadow War looks like it can be a fun way to do something 40K again while waiting for GW to (hopefully) fully overhaul the system. The gift was a stack of 16 square MDF bases a fellow hobbyist had lying around with a plan to turn into a Zone Mortalis board.

- It is practically impossible to reach using normal movement;
- People knock it over while reaching down for something else;
- It is hard to store higher terrain features.

|I try not to think about the amount of time spent making these...|
|Sometimes inspiration hits you during your lunch break.|
|The towers start taking shape.|
|Now they are completely covered. I could punch small holes in every square to make them look nailed in, but I will probably abandon this project screaming if I do that on this scale, so I'll just go for an extra coating of rust.|
|The ramps are in place. I used a q-tip to spread the to thick for even my style of globbing things together bit of glue on the ramp.|
Here is the end result of the first base.
|The other side of the ramp, the upper floor is actually pinned to the tower so it will most likely survive gaming.|
