|With a bit of imagination this is starting too look like something sci-fi.|
For this terrain build I finally got a chance to turn my theory that squirt guns are excellent for making 40K terrain into practice. I picked up around five of these in thrift stores over the summer for this purpose.
|Squirt guns have all kinds of interesting shapes you can use for sci-fi terrain.|
|Preparing a lot of MDF bases.|
|The generators were my first squirt gun shape attempt. I call it a success.|
|this top ramp leads to a dangerous drop.|
Adding floor underlay to the old toy race track seems to work out reasonably nicely, although I'm not sure paint will stick to it. Lets keep my fingers crossed...
|The fallen supports needed more distressing, that's where my trusty pliers came in.|
|The pink shapes on the front are made from a container of disgusting gum.|
|I distress the walkways and will paint them up in rust colors later, it should help explain why no sector on the map truly fits another.|
|The green line at 7.5 cm was a first measurement as to where the rail should be, that is the regular height of 1st floor GW terrain.|
|The insta-filler failed, so it is back to PVA for me.|
The big round thing is a container for diaper disposal liners. I used some foamboard to raise the interior and covered that in filler with some plastic balls to make bubbles. It looked bad, so I poured in PVA today. That will raise the level a bit more and make the balls look more like bubbles. To give it a bit of an extra dangerous edge I've glued in seven of them (it is Nurgle's number, so that adds to the danger!).
Looks like I'm going to be building a lot more the coming weeks. For now I'll have to decide whether to start painting these four to see if paint sticks to all used materials, or if I'm going to fill the last two prepared bases before trying that.
