Thanks all.

WOW HANG ON....Hi Arakasi. how the devil are you?

So today did a center piece for this table, started out with a 12" round of 5mm epvc....sketched out an idea...


Started laying down some base colours...


And added a bit more paint....


Trouble is I think it is a bit gawdy.

Thoughts welcome.

"added a bit of paint" he says as he shows us something amazing
It looks awesome Cam, and don't worry about gawdy, this is chaos we're talking about, the faction that needs to decorate everything with colours, symbols, chains, spikes, skulls, etc. I'm curious how that's not considered done yet, what are you planning on doing next?

Thanks folks.

Sorry I am a bit quiet, i.e. not chatting much, just working through stuff, and concentrating on the builds.

To give Twinner a few options, I am making a raised "dias" for the center. It will have a more imperial feel. He has shown me a battle mat he wants all this for so hope this lot will key in ok.

Anyways here are some pics of the build today.



These are four quadrants not going to be this tall.




Find this useful for quick mass production.





Do not think I am going to secure the "lids"


More soon.

So you're not building a 40k multi-storey car park? The Administratum Municipalus are going to be disappointed.

Quick question, should the reliefs be just metallic, probably bronze, or should I paint them you know scrolls etc.

Bearing that in mind, maybe the scrolls etc could be a variation on marble?

My plaudits added to the others, I'll just leave my here on the table....

For the detail oddments, I vote color, albeit faded- to contrast with the metal and marble.

The marble finish is glorious. I’m not sure about finishing the sides with color. Maybe verdigris to show age, but since it looks like a piece of art, I almost think keeping it all metal would be fine.

Had missed it was a multi-top piece. Bit of verdigris and maybe a couple of tiny touches of colour on some of the details is probably the best course to fit with both
