That is the exact plan. How did you know?
6x6 or 6x8. Sovietwave sort of industrial set of buildings. Cold war space program but imperium. Maglev train, destroyed rocket, soviet destroyed tank yards. Bodies in shallow water, hanging corpses, graffiti and more. Green overgrowth, rust, heavy white orange red yellow Asimov colors.

I'm a broken cog in the world of finance. I have a Boiler Room type analyst role and I cater/support the deals the aggressive sales team makes. It's a screaming and disorganized rush from 3am to the end of day every day and every weekend. Double paychecks, bonuses, buying titans, and buying fancy new electronics isn't a feasible trade. I had to take a week off due to stress and mental burnout. I've never been a person to go to a psychologist but I made my first appointment off a recommendation from a friend during the next week. I'll channel the desperation and rage into this piece. Full Hemingway mode: I get properly fethed up when I binge paint on big projects. I'm loaded up this week with the unholy trinity of cigars, liquor, and coffee.
That gives me from 10/10 - 10/18 to build a table.
Themes and ideas:
- Destroyed 28mm cityscape.
- Retro Sci Fi Space Program/Cold War Russian Chernobyl aesthetic. Asiimov
- Brutalism Architecture for larger structures
- Dirty filthy white concrete color scheme. Minor colors will be chosen later
- Drowned corpses in puddles, displays of public executions, and destroyed vehicles
- 6x6 Scenario table layout for Apocalypse (4x8 Variation)
- 4x6 Standard Battlefield modular layout
- Defensive areas/gun emplacements for a large Tyranid vs Imperial fight or a Chaos vs. Imperial
- Graffiti/some elements of a GSC or Chaos Cult around the buildings
- One 2x2 "Installation" / Supermassive platform type of tile
- Around 12-14 structures or modular pieces
- Destroy old terrain and use those pieces in this table
- War Memorial/statues and a wall of papers for missing people
Still collecting materials now! We're at 100 barrels and 100+ tires!
Sounds like work sucks! Hopefully a week of hobbying and drinking will help relieve some stress! Failing that, it’s always good to talk, so maybe the psychologist will help. Either way the plans for the table sound amazing, the wall a pictures should be pretty grim dark. You should put some Easter eggs in there like Elvis, Princess Di or the pictures of the Primarchs

Ohhhh yeah I have to think of some good easter eggs. Last time I had Emperor Palpatine as a statue on a table and a few funny graffiti additons
From 2016/2017 I made a similar memorial piece and I want to capture the sadness again
