I really dig how much extra your basements give the models. Especially when you add the damage to them. - Makes it feel much more like a long decayed city...

Thanks!

Sorry for jumping from one terrain piece to the next.

Sorry for the lack of updates lately, other things got in the way.
I picked up the triumph arch I began some time ago, here's a WIP image:


I tried experimenting with more Cities of Death bitz (wall sections, lamps etc) on the walls, but everything looked slightly out of place on that huge wall, so eventually I ended up using only a few extra bitz. It's a little boring, but I still think the scale of the arch is turning out ok. I also tried cutout block letters for the inscription, but realized I preferred a more handwritten style. If it looks completely awful when painted I can always replace it. Thoughts?

Do you have a vehicle model to place under the arch to give us a sense of scale? Also, the walls look a little plain. Maybe extend the details of those arches around the top to the bottom? Or coat the walls in a sand texture gel to give it a poured concrete look? It looks impressive. I've been meaning to make something like this myself. This is great inspiration!

Thanks for the feedback!
"Tu simia et asinus" roughly translates into "you're a monkey and an ass", it's an inside joke, sort of.
I'll get a vehicle in there on the next pic... the tile is 40cm across, and the arch is sized so that a Baneblade can just get through it. I always use sand-textured paint, we'll see how it looks...

That arch looks great, but definitely needs lots more Gothic Esq details,
maybe some statues, or small arch reliefs over the walls, just something to cover up the flat sides.
At least that's my opinion, I'm sure you have plenty of ideas of your own .

Sorry about the break! Both the Arch and the CoD building are now textured and painted (still some detailing to be done), images coming up after the holidays.

Just chiming in to let you know I'm still alive. Haven't had time to work much on my terrain, I got a Hemlock for my Eldar army which has been stealing away my precious hobby time. However, I've taken a few days off from work next week, hopefully I'll be able to get some terrain work done!

instead of adding bits to the wall why not add texture of some kind? maybe even draw bricks in with a pen deep enough that they show once you paint it?

Suddenly, progress!

I need to paint the inside of the arch, but apart from that I think I'm done. Maybe I should have added more details, but I ended up liking the simplicity, it gives the arch a kind of brutal, monolithic look that I'm ok with.

Unbelievable! Thanks for sharing all of this; it's very inspiring.

I just had some 30x30cm boards made for my local club which I intend to begin work on, and you have absolutely raised the limits of what I thought of as possible! I really like the fact that your buildings are largely raised up above the "floor" (and I echo the cool depth and detail that the collapsed basements add); the height to which you have done that is greater than I would have tried.

I also love the standard sized "tiles" that litter the bombed out buildings (like in the cathedral or on the raised "altar" by the statue). Can I ask what you are using for those? Are they just movement tray tiles?

Also, I have never used foam board like you have there (like for the floor of the bombed out cathedral) but I can clearly see how that would be excellent for avoiding the melting of styrofoam by spray paint (or the necessity of painting all foam surfaces with white glue first.

So, awesome! Thanks very much.

Thanks for all the praise!
On my first buildings (like the raised altar) I used cut-up cereal boxes for floor tiles, but they're a pain to glue on. They look a little to thin IMO, but on the other hand it's easy to make nice cracked tiles. On the more recent buildings I just drew a grid on the foamboard floor, then used a scalpel to slice through the upper card of the foamboard. Then I used a ballpen to widen the crack. Crazy fast when you're doing large floor surfaces, but doesn't look quite as good up close. The loose tiles in the cathedral crater section are made of foamboard as well. I drew a grid, same way I did with the floor, but I cut all the way through to make a loose tile, then split it down the middle to make two thin tiles. (If you make the final cut a bit rough you have the option to either put the tile card side up for a smooth surface, or foam side up for a more ruined look.)

Thanks so much, that is awesome! I do hear you about "looking thin" but it's a good use for that thin cardboard, and it is very easily sculpted to look cracked (like in your "altar" pedestal piece) which is great. The scoring with hobby knives & ballpoint pens I also can see now that I look at the cathedral floor again. I think it looks great, and if you "loosened" a tile or two somewhere in the middle, like you describe above, it would break up the smoothness. But for large surfaces, I definitely see how that is a great way forward.

I secured some foamboard today from the art department (I'm a teacher) and am pleased to know about that and see how you have used it; I would have used Styrofoam all the way and that's a lot of work as you have to paint it with white paint before painting. Now I need to spring for some Citadel scenery, of course, but that's just something I've been waiting for an excuse to do, in honesty.

So, I'm excited to get to work--thanks again for the inspiration!

How did you paint it? Did you just use spray paints? Basically how did you do the grey-black. It looks really good.

Thanks!
Plastic buildings are spray-painted black (or in some cases, gunmetal), foam parts are painted with black water-based wall paint. Then everything is drybrushed with citadel greys, then splotched a bit with ink, washes and brown paint, the drybrushed again. After this, detailing as needed. (still lots of detailing to be done...) The ground is just painted with the same wall paint, then drybrushed with a lighter grey wall paint. After that, it's citadel greys all the way, with some brown washing here and there. For the entire table I've used about 5 pot of mechanicus standard grey, and 3 pots of the lighter greys. (mostly administratum grey and dawnstone)

Sorry for the lack of updates, summer is here and the only thing I'm painting atm is a cabin roof and a boat hull. ><

Winter is coming and it's Warhammer season again! No further progress has been made on the table yet, but I recently played a game on it, and it worked pretty well!
As you can see, there are still a few tiles missing. I think it might be a good idea to use these for open terrain, tbh it was a little too cramped for tank warfare.

This has really taken shape, seems to have all come together at once!

My only suggestions to you, which are really nit picking personal preference stuff, are that the archway seems very "flimsy", maybe some buttresses could make it look more substantial? And that the blank tiles are no bad thing, maybe just a few craters or barricades? Looks out of place amongst the rest of your fantastic creations.

Once again, well done!
