Welcome to the Hive Sector EPG-13 (east primary gate) WIP.

Planet: not yet classified
Hive City name: not yet classified
Progress: 40-45%
Size: 8 x 8 foot

Beginning -

My friend and I just got started on a large 6x8' cities of death table. We have mostly just gotten the pink a blue foam levels down. I have been saving up a lot of scenery over the years and we have some pretty cool stuff to work with. The table will have a lot of elevated roads, 7-8 large buildings, a fortress wall with gate, multiple levels, a canal down the middle, a large courtyard, bridges, a large bastion connected to the city wall, a manufactorum, two landing pads and a large cathedral as the focal point.

Can't wait to see the much more!

Let no man glory in the greatness of his mind,
but rather keep watch o'er his wits.
Cautious and silent let him enter a dwelling;
to the heedful comes seldom harm,
for none can find a more faithful friend
than the wealth of mother wit.

Here are some pictures of the first building. These are all old forge world destroyed buildings they don't sell anymore. We really don't wont a lot of destroyed buildings so we decided to put them all into one. You'll see we had to shave down the foam some to make them level with each other and also began carving the foam to match the brick floor pattern. hoping to add some stairs and other pillars soon

I really like that elevated roadway! And the plaster copies of stuff is smart. Watching this thread from now on. Keep up the good work.

Agreed as above: looks great so far, and I'll be seeing how this develops!

Tunnels! Tunnels are the best thing and you have done them wonderfully here. I... really like tunnels on boards like this, you don't see them too often.

We did some work on the cathedral towers using pink foam and the back side of the shrine of the aquila panels. Also decided to raise the hill it will be sitting on to give it a slightly higher base than the raised roads.

Also tried carving stairs. They don't look so great. I think we are going to have to apply plaster to most of the items we are carving out of pink foam. I don't know how everyone else get such good results just using the foam

Games Workshop just release a new game called shadow war Armageddon with just the terrain I was needing for a factory and maybe some bridges between buildings too

Are you using a knife or a hot knife/wire cutter.

Though my guards may sleep and my ships may lay at anchor, our foes know full well that big guns never tire.

Very nice. Just in time for Shadow War.

Fifty, my more skilled carving partner on this project used a razor at first for the steps then moved to a dermal with a cutting tool. We used a hot styrofoam knife on some parts of this but I don't think it's very easy to manage or city straight with

Brilliant! This is looking like it's going to be a dream to play on! What about added ambitiousness and creating a removable bridge across the canal which can be destroyed by a squad for example if they have a melta bomb (or equivalent)?

Will be monitoring this thread...

Great idea! We really don't know how we are going to make the two bridges across the canal yet. Original one was supposed to be destroyed but I don't know now. Trying to convince my building partner that we should add a third table in between the existing two and make the canal a river

We started work on the imperial bastion and city wall last night. Mostly just foam core right now to get the frame strong enough to hold the weight. We will add all of the plastic and plaster details later. The building will have three levels including a motor pool basement, barracks on the middle floor and a two story command center as the top interior level. Tower will provide troops direct access to city wall and has a Aquila strong point with canon as the top/roof.

Ok I may have just purchased all of the Hirst arts molds needed to make the cargo bay interior in the image below. These should help with the details needed for our future hanger project and the bastion interiors above.
