I have photos taken with a not-a-cell-phone that I'll upload when I make a youtube video.

I'm happy about these right now

I'm trying to get a week off of work to crank out my entire next 6x8 table this month. We'll see how it goes. I only want to work on terrain

Honestly feth painting minis. I don't enjoy it and I despise painting to a higher quality then "tabletop". Iron hands are my 20th space marine army thats 2k+ points.

Go where the painting muse takes you. No reason to burn yourself out on something when you could work on something else that you want to do.

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.

Oh, that sounds glorious!

I am working on a city board myself, so looking forwards to stealing ideas

That sounds awesome! Good luck getting it moving on your week off!

Really impressive that you’ve painted up 20x2k Space Marines... 40k is an apt number of points that’s for sure! Do you still have them all or have you sold them?

Love the dread with the single eye in the last pic some postings back. Really interesting to see a round "face" on that edgy box.

Maybe 14 of the armies were commissions. I did commissions for years for locals.

I never keep more than 2-3 armies at a time and rotate out any others/sell

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
- Maglev/Train
- 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

Looking forwards to seeing how you solve the mix of modularity and looks. That is my main issue when planning my board.

A week of drinking and building terrain does seem therapeutic. I do not envy you Americans with your seemingly very stressful work/life balances.

Thanks Illumini - yeah Americans are a bit wild. The "Live for the weekend" mindset is really built in. It's the only free time you have!

A few hours away from freedom and no more work. Can't wait!

And so it begins! If the memorial piece is anything to go by this is going to be immense. I’m looking forward to trying to spot the Easter eggs!

Is that a river running from bottom right to a port mid left? I’m liking the prospect of the bridges if It is!
