Im currently building a 40k city using GW terrain.

So far i have built a Manufactorum, Cathedral, administratum building and a large landing pad plus a few home made foam buildings (Ill be adding more pics soon)

Im looking for more inspiration so any comments or ideas are welcome.

Is any one else on DAKKA DAKKA involved in making a battlefield/terrain if so wat is it and why ???

i would try a unified paintscheme instead of induvidual colours for each building , the red on the manufactorum looks great just needs some depth imo, the admin building is pretty cool gotta admit, that would look great painted up.


Automatically Appended Next Post:
so as to my question , i am guessing about 4-6 kits?

Looking good Paranoia_Agent! I will be checking in on your thread. As for color I think the red you have is really nice and stick with the Codex Gray. Let the little details do all the talking rather then a paint scheme that does not fit the overall feel or fluff.

@Neil, Thanks for the plug buddy. Your dollar is in the mail!

Very nice indeed. It is good to see buildings on this sort of scale - they are usually fairly small, which is a shame.

I am currently doing the same thing, building a city. That because my main army, guard, is Urban themed.

For inspiration on on what buildings to create, just look into the stratagems in the cities of death book.


Otherwise:

-PDF barracks
-Manufactorum
-Slums
-Power generator
-Bar
-The governor's palace
-Arbites Office
-Garage/tanking station
-Train station (?)
- much and much more...

Hope this helped

Haha yea ''Kingoftheswords'' is has got a big doller sign on it already and its no were near done.

Just so you guys now its currently got:

3 Shrine of the Aquila sets
4 Basilica Administratum kits
1 Sanctum Imperialis kit
A set of pillers and a crashed shuttle, so alot of kits already.

Unfortuanatly "neil101" i havent had the chance too play many games on it yet.

I have made every building in my city fit with this big scale im currently working on another building a large Basilica Administratum i will post pics of that soon.

My biggest problem with it at the moment is trying too make the crashed shuttle work well with the building ill probly use lots of modeling clay so it looks like its hit the building and skidded across the floor.

Awesome, great work so far

Just the sort of inspiration i need to get me pumped for my city building and painting!

I agree with you 100% on the scale so far, i always felt the piddly buildings the GW studio (and most people) make were completely at odds with the fluff.

Thanks for the comments guys i really need the feedback to keep this huge project going.

Yea i always thought that if i was gonna build a 40k hive city i was gonna build it big!!!

I will be putting up a few pics of the city as a whole soon, the bourd im currently using is 48" wide by 96" long but i dont think it's big enough wat do you guys think make it bigger ?????

And i want to add a crashed landspeeder in the courtyard of the smaller building any suggestions on how to model the dead marine pilots ???

Well, dead SM don't have any real expressions with their helmets on. So, just model them limp, and with some scorchmarks, as a landspeeder is open topped. Hope this helped.

Yea it does help thanks.

My origional idea is, Having one marine partially decapitated with a piece of metal sticking out his neck limp and gorified.

The other guy crawled away from the wreckage with half of one leg missing proped up against the side of the speeder bolter in hand and other arm holding a gaping hole in his chest.

Scorch mark idea for the win!!!

And blood everywere completly gorified for your wargaming needs.

haha, your visualisation sounds more interesting than mine. Mabye bahe the crawling man half in and half out of the landspeeder, to suggest his wounds were too much?

I like it problem is SM usually have chemicals pumping through there system when wounded to help them get that little further or fight that bit longer.

Its a good idea though i think ill have to crash a Valkyrie or something into my manafactorum and do it using guard models.

Thanks for the idea.
