How's it goin everyone. I have been working on different kinds of terrain for a while now. So I wanted to try and make a really intense industrial cities of death game board.

My plan is to make like a chemical/mineral/gas processing plant with control stations, smokestacks, catwalks, and just a bunch of "refinery looking" stuff. Then, surrounding the center will be a system of towers. 4 large towers with 3 stories and 4 towers with 2 stories. All of these industrial towers should have inter connecting catwalks on all levels, even connecting the center of the table. It'll probably fill up at least a 6X4 table.

So now that the center's got some cool looks to it, I wanted to wait to finish it until the towers are constructed. Just to make sure the catwalks and everything line up. I tried to keep all the levels of the terrain pieces the same as the gw cities o death...3 inches high and like increments of 1 7/8 wide. So now it's time to get the towers brewin.

I used poster foam board to make all the boxes and just glued the with some nice hot glue. I started by making just one tower to see if it was all going to work out. And it did.

I'm starting to get stoked now. I went ahead and bought 2 imperial sector sets from gw and got all my bitz boxes out.

Ok I wanted to make a HQ type tower that was bigger and better. This one is intense, the cathedral style ceiling and the upper deck are gonna look sick on the battle table.
As you can see, I'll use anything that works.
I'll be adding to this thread in the days and nights to come.

Looks awesome once primed!

Overall, a very nice setup that might even work real well for a game of Infinity.

Nicely done!

Alright, Ive gotten all the towers built and catwalks that surround the entire complex. Thisinal details project is uber huge, but I'm gonna win!!! All I have left is to do some final details. I'm going to make about 5 or 6 command consoles, and add some wire safety handrails out of cotter pins and wire. It'll be lookin sweet by next weekend, I'm hopin".

Very cool.

Just how modular is it? Are all those catwalks attached permanently, or do you use magnets?

Totally modular. Definitely need to magnetize the catwalks, cause if you move 1 all fall!

This is a city very much to my liking. Do you play necromunda on it? If not you should. How much cities of death kits have you used?

Being completely honest I really didn't like your city at first at all. I just couldn't get past the randomness of it all. Hence why I never posted....

NOW that its primed and painted up it looks awesome! The tubes that are chimneys just looked weird unpainted but with a little black paint on everything it really changes it for me.

Nice underhive and way to see it through. One thing I noticed - you missed painting the sides of the wooden catwalks...And yes, I have been looking that closely...lol.

It looks good, although a little texturizing on some of the blanker, smoother surfaces might be an idea.

Maybe the Squats were all the Space Marines we made along the way.

drinking ale on the ground like russ intended

A little tip thin plastic in the walk ways will get rid of the wood grain texture and give it a industrial feel.
and there are diamond plate sheets too.

putting the finishing touches, on the catwalks as we speak. Definitely putting some plasticard on the walks but I think I'm too far into it to add texture. I'll try and stipple different shades of paint, with painted cracks and the like. I'm about to rust a lot of the "metal" areas.

Seriously though.....I'm starting to dream about it at night, It's to the point where I just need to get it done... But I'm not giving up.

That looks great! R2 turned into a nice window/thing.

"I.. I know my time has come" Tethesis said with a gasp, a torrent of blood flowing from his lips.
"No! Hang on brother!!" Altharius could feel the warmth slip away from his dear sibling's hands

Tethesis's reached out his bloodied arm to Altharius's face.
"I..I have one final request"
Altharius leaned close to listen, tears welling in his once bright eyes.
"make sure th..they put my soulstone in a tank... it'll be... real fethin' cool"
"Yes, you're gonna be the most fethin' cool tank!!" burning hot tears streaked down Altharius's face, as he held his brother's soul in his grasp.
