Insane sounds accurate

This is the start of the approximate 3' high x 3' wide landing tower. And I thought the manufactorum was a pain

This is just awesome!
Keep us posted, and i think i have to steal some of your ideas for my CoD table.

That cathedral floor is pure genius.
Did a similar thing for a battlefleet gothic table but not nearly as good as this.

Here's the level layout. Bay (ground level), an elevator stop 10" up at the street level, another small level for the monorail 5" up from there, then the landing platform level, then another 5" and I'll add a small control tower or something

Anybody have some good recommendations for railings or stairs that work for 40k?

Was looking at 1/32 plastruct

One quick way is to use wire mesh


from like home depot

Snip in the right spots and you get a lot of cheap railing.

snip it right and you can also make a bunch of ladders.

like this and this

Thanks! What about girders? To cover my landing platform frame I was going to need like 420" or $100 worth

In regards to painting I'm try to figure out what colors to use on the manufactorum. Any advice or opinions would be appreciated



Should I make it Mecanicus or tech marine red?



What color should the exhaust stack be? Yellow, white, blue?





Also are there any spray can options for these that would look good?

Automotive grey and black primers would probably be the easiest and cheapest.
Make a TON of black and brown wash (there are tutorials all over)

then pick out some details in silver bronze and copper to add color.

Personally like the neutral white/grey scheme but thats just me.

White might work but I think I want to save the main white building for the fortress of redemption/senate conversion. Which I hope will look something like these

There's a list of terrain collie schemes in one of this years WD. I'll see if I can find them.

Edit: What luck! Warhammer Community posted THEM on their site!

Thanks again emberlord.



Think I'm going to try and get some sort of mechanicus outpost red for the manufactorum. Need to figure out how to incorporate these other color schemes too

Anyone know anything about lego motors? I'm using these for the elevator on the landing tower. If it's not too hard I might motorize it. If not these will still make it easy to move up and down

Not really but you can still go for a manual version with some kind of winder.
Don`t know if they have enough power for your task? I just remember the ones i had but maybe the newer ones have more power.
Otherwise there should be plenty alternatives.

That multiple landing plattform is awesome!
If you go for a motorized elevator i expect a lot of LED`s too.

Yeah newer ones have plenty of power, especially compared to the old ones. I've got a little one powering a little home-made lego car through a 2-speed gearbox and a working differential which is a far amount of gear-related losses.

Could do with two mind you...

Absolutely love the idea though you can get two types I think, little ones which spin fairly quickly and bigger ones which have gear-reduction inside the motor so turn slower with more torque.

Personally, I'd go with the higher speed one and then do external gear reduction. Be cooler to see all of the gears spinning outside of the motor
