Those look great SL! Excellent work on the checks. The white areas really break up the areas of yellow.

You're still an absolute madman for painting an army in the two most evil colors!

Thanks, they are a good table top paint job. Finished the Las cannons last night and hopefully I'll do some basing tonight. I also need to paint the 'Bleeding heart' on the white tail sections... Doh!

Good paint job on those silly things. The more I see them popping up here and there, the more I feel like buying one and attacking it with a hacksaw and plasticard.

Honestly.. that's very you! I'm not that creative. I'll leave that to you genius's .

Actually I have another Stormtalon NIB, Not sure I'll ever use three ( 4 if you count the Raptors one already painted. ) I'm quessing I'll hang on it in case I ever start another SM army.

Thanks Dee, Git and Dantay... Means a lot!

So we play most of our games at out local FLGs. The terrain is pretty beat up and some what a mix of stuff and alot of different terrain systems. So this weekend I got some foam board and fired up the juet fueled Glue gun and went to work.

Made 4 large LOS blocking buildings and A pair of damaged Highway overpasses. I made the buildings from a template so I could easily reproduce the panels quickly. A requirement was also to make the interiors large enough to accomidate a dread or crisis suit without forcing the model or placing a counter to mark it's location. I also made the height and width of the windows large enough to make it LOS obvious. After some texturing ( mostly to prevent the foam from being eaten by the spray paint) I primed Black and shaded with Grey and a rust colored primer. Did some light Grey dry brushing and done. Camera pics for now.




Here is a size comparrison with my Eldar Warithknight,



I'll be doing some more smaller structures as well. I'll post some shots later. Maybe in an actual game the next time we play

The terrain looks great, and I like how you've made the bypass sections,
plus how you took into account things like line of sight and model placement,
so the terrain is functionally and not just pretty .

Are you planning on making or adding any small piles of rubble or debris, to place around the buildings and bypass?

I was going for a more urban look so the potential is there for all sorts of additions. I didn’t want to add a lot to the bases of the building as we play mostly on a battle board ( flocked green). Problem with this is that there are a few sections that would hold the buildings without tipping ( remember these are foam board) so adding more to the overall foot print isn’t in the plan. If however the pieces are just too unstable ( they are light weight ) I might base them and add some decoration.

I Still like a fairly busy game table. So the next items will be some smaller buildings, some ground level road sections ( collapsed sections of the raised road) and some simple pipeline pieces. When I get my own board/ table section built I can model the terrain to match my board. These are just for the general gaming at my FLGs.

I will bring these for my next game and take some pic's. Hopefully next week.

Thanks, garnering attention from a great terrain builder is a honor.

Hopefully I can get some hrs in this week.

Thanks , but remember these are only foamboard. Most of the hard work was actually cutting the stuff out. So I thought i didn't get much done for a weekend. Now that I have my STC template . I'll use it do more simular themed stuff. At least we'll have some terrain in the store that matches ( for as long as they last )

Yeah, I like that overpass a lot as well. Makes me think of trying something like a ramp and partial overpass once my SWM boards arrive.

It's great to have finally tracked down the persons log who is working on these Lamenters. I see shots of your models here and there when I search the Chapter, or posted on other Blogs.
It's a great project, and I am impressed with your output. I'm slowly chugging away at a Lamenter's army myself but I have no where near the output you do, and I'm taking a different approach to the chapter.

Very cool work, I am inspired to put my nose to the grind stone and start getting some more models out there!

Thanks gentlemen! Can't see it from the pictures but on one of the overpass sections is a hanging road section. I used some wire to make it look like rebar ( thus help hold the section in place ) I'm planning to adda few more pieces this weekend.

Thanks for the praise.. They are only table top quality but with the Lamenter theme they stand out well enough.. It's good to have a few more Lamenter players out there. I love to see what your doing so post a link here. As for quanity.. these have taken years.. and I have several other armies I play as well , so I hop back and forth.

As always comments and suggestions are welcomed.

Ouch!.. Now get to work so you can pay mine and Git's social security checks!

On the terrain front.. I got 2 smaller buildings finished and 3 new road sections, I also made some (4) corner peices the resemble a park gardern. I got some fake folige that I'm going to try and add. Basic pics later when I return from my Bday meal!
