Thank you all.

@ Archer Will get it sorted, and thank you.
@ Vik, Just trying to make it look the part really, I am happy with how it is looking so far.
@ Gits, Thanks sir, I try.
@ Graven, Thank you bud, much appreciated.

So have finished off a few bits, going to add some details later, but will have a run at it across all the pieces. Going to take a little break from it to make sure I do not burn out, have so many ideas for it though.

Indameentime....


Which is a multipart section, and can be used as smaller sections, but is magnetised for strength.

Scale shot...


And with a little paint..


And some shots of what I have done so far laid out...







And on the shelf..


Thanks for looking, any comments gratefully received.

that aqueduct is simply awesome! left me speechless for a moment...true jaw dropping!

i have these project burn out times every time in each project...i need to put up my brush and start working on my pieces too....

one minor suggestion....that round shape of a "place" you did there...that masonry circle...its all (damn loss of words here...speech impediment) all the stones are not staggered ...would be not a sturdy way to build something...made out of foam that way of course easier...but...

Seconded. Aqueduct is amazing work. Now I totally want to make one of my own. Any chance of letting us know its dimensions? Height and all that?

Also, did you scribe in the stonework? I've seen something similar to what you've done. The person used a ball point pen that ws out of ink.

History trolling aside, The aqueduct has massive potential. I've seem tables with things like monorails, which may function, in game, in a similar way to the aqueduct.

Not where I should be

Thank you all so much,

@ Red, sorry for delay, you asked for dimensions. I am kinda working to a 3" cube system similar to Deadzone. It has a nice feel to it but at the same time lends itself to other systems and free open play as well as the grid system. Below is a pic I hope will help.



This is the main arch section, as you can see it is 3"(75mm) high, with the arches being 2"(50mm) wide gaps. The over all length os this sections is 12" (300mm), though I have made a smaller group of sections this time around. The idea behind the piece and the gaps, is to restrict movement of large units but maintain sight lines etc. Infantry can move fairly freely through it as well. Later you will see the extensions I put together to extend its height to 6" (150mm) with the channel on top. The parts for the extensions came from the off cuts from the arches. The channel on top is 40mm wide with a 10mm wall either side, it would be possble to have a 60mm base on top, though it would float slightly. Again the idea is to restrict movement of large units.

This is a cross section of the walk way, each piece is 20mm wide.


Breakdown of extensions...



Various new pieces..

Some break down to be able to build bigger structures...





And with a lick of paint...




You may have noticed the drain covers/grids..



This was always on the cards, enabling models to stand over some of the water sections, Added a few to the other earlier pieces..


Also messing about with the idea of a catacombs/graveyard, made a little crypt...




In between drying times messed about with some off cuts...



Next up a distraction...


Well ok three distractions..


Got these a while ago from OneManNoodles, not seen him about for a while, hope he is well, and doing great. I am going to make some different backs for this, have various ideas in mind. Already started, more pics later....

Wel thank you for looking, please feel free to comment and critique.

Sorry to sound rude here, but you are simply not allowed to use the term "messed around" in combination with your work... it's way beyond mere messing around with...

Also thanks again for that tutorial/step by step...

All looks super and highly inspiring!!!

Can't wait to see what the "distractions" wind up with.

Yeah have not seen much of OMN of late, hope he is okay.

Thank you all, very much appreciated.

So bit of progress, this is all interchangeable...

Bit of body work...


Made these by making a foam former and gluing the PC onto it, and itself to form a shell...


Made some turrets...


The foam enables me to be able to bury a magnet under the PC to give various mounting points for turrets etc. also magnetized the the gun ponts so they are interchangeable...




And here is the back of the open topped variant, think it is classed as a Salamander Command Tank.


Well still very WIP and lots of variants, Heavy Flamer, Heavy Bolter, Autogun, Vanquisher cannon, or maybe earthshaker, might reduce the length of that one, and a Hydra variant, also probably make some more standard backs for just troop carrying, and some more bigger guns.

Thoughts and comments welcome, thanks for looking.
