Not much progress this weekend. Only foamcore work on the city wall and supports for the roads.



Some idea of how the roads will look on this side of the canal



And a little layout work for the bastion




Oh and we got a huge box from forge world. What could it be?


The MARINE CASTELLUM STRONGHOLD. Which we are hoping to use as part of the landing port. Unfortunately it's really big and hard to incorporate. Might need to cut it down some

I win. The canal is now a river! Also spent most of this weekend reinforcing the tables themselves. The particle board was curving way too much on the sides



And also a silly picture of my siege tower attacking the city wall

So oooo epic!

I love the siege tower , it may be a silly picture for fun but those moments give lots of scope for great narrative hooks.

That siege tower is kickass! Really hammers home the techno-medieval theme of 40k

My project partner also chopped up the CASTELLUM STRONGHOLD and got it to fit in under the road. Eventually this will have two tall sky shield landing pads above it with an elevator down.

Very ambitious project! How does all that plaster and foamboard work for durability though?

Hey Redemption,

I think you are like the 4th person to call our project "ambitious" which is concerning .

In regards to the stryafoam, it's mostly just a base structure and very well reinforced. The dental plaster is also very strong, though we've had some issues with really thin pieces breaking when we are grinding or sanding them to fit. Your question is making me consider the risks of the large flat surface (like roads and courtyards) areas that were supposed to get covered in plaster. Those could have a higher probability of cracking. I'll need to look into that some more

Thx

Ok, my wife is going to kill me once she see my recent credit card activity. Just purchased the realm of battler: sector imperialism from games workshop.

The plan is to cut the road sections out and use them on our raised roads then use the rest of the materials for floors and some wall facades
Hopefully that eagle can work as a front gate but I fear it's too big

Just got our order in from Zen Terrain

Not a huge fan of laser-cut stuff because it still looks really flat once painted but some pieces here and there help. This is one of a few companies we are trying out. The walkway already looks really good and I'm even more excited for the command table that we are going to light from underneath with LEDs

Started work on completing the cathedral. Doesn't look like much we actually did a ton of work. All of the Pegasus hobby pieces had to be ground down to fit, the base had to be reinforced because the foam wasn't strong enough, level everything, made new stronger pillars out of wood trim and still there is tones of grinding and glueing to go.

Do you intend to put any interior walls in your large ruined building? Or a stairwell to suggest there's a way up to that level from the floors below?

THIS is awesome. You could (If you wanted) attempts to build a ZM-esque lower floor to the cathedral, with vaulted ceilings and reliquaries, maybe descending into dirt walled catacombs that have been there since before the Imperium came...

@emberlord and @warboss

Yes and yes. There is an approximate 1' cubic area under the cathedral that will have caticomes, shrines, graves, stairs, etc. kind of like raiders of the lost arc I guess. In regards to the destroyed building, you're right we should have added stairs there as well but that might be too late. I think we may fake it with some doors. There will be a large staircase going down to the lower level right outside it though

Here is a pretty poor pictures of the space below the cathedral to at least show the area you're talking about

Here are some shots on the beginning of the very very long paver project. These will be used for the floor in the catacombs as well as all the outside lover level walking paths and courtyards. They are cut from the cardboard that's found on the back of notebooks, glued down with wood glue and will have sand spread between the cracks to represent mortar. Idea taken from :
