Warboss_Waaazag,

The dangling wires are a great idea.

I am curious at what you are going to do with the "Squirrel!" Project.

Cheers,

CB


Hey Captain Brown, thanks for the feedback. The "Squirrel" Project, and likely anything else industrial I work on in the next few months, are all part of a massive modular Spacehulk board I'm building in anticipation of running my friends through the Deathwatch Campaign I have been writing for the past few years (as found here). I originally intended to make sixty 6"x6" vignette terrain pieces, but my ambition grew larger than my origin. Thus the reason I started with the ridiculously large piece I've been posting up progress shots of. In an essence, the big piece is the true "squirrel". Whenever I'm done I hope to have enough pieces to create a contiguous derelict interior to cover two 6'x4' tables with, just so I have enough variety to never play on the same configuration twice.

The "Squirrel" vent is meant to be a stand alone piece that can be placed as scatter terrain and will likely get many friends of similar manufacture, considering the base piece costs less than a dollar and most of the details on it are made from garbage cardstock and coffee stirrer sticks. I'm cobbling a prototype so I can make a more comprehensive tutorial for this blog.

As far as that campaign is concerned, it is large, ever evolving, and just the beginning of my insane ambition to write what will likely become a dozen or more equally detailed campaigns for a variety of armies. If anyone has any requests (for instance I have two acquaintances who play Astra Militarum and Deathguard respectively and whose shared narrative is that they've been fighting for control of an abandoned mining world of blue sand and Brutalist Hablocks. I intend to surprise them with a custom Campaign along the lines of "Life and Death of Calumet" or some such title. So, if anyone has any requests, but understands it will be some time before I get to your suggestion, feel free to throw me some ideas. I'd love to hear from you all.

Cheers!

Thanks, Dr H!

I tried my hand at super glue and baking soda weathering and was mildly impressed. I think I still prefer sand and white glue, but In combo with the other stuff. Didn't know what to expect so I used both techniques on the cup terrain tile first. The so-far results.



And then, after sealing the above, I went on to apply the same techniques to the larger piece. Details of the bulkheads:


Here I created the beginning of some stalactites (instead of using green stuff).


And the far side of the wall.


C&C always welcome. Thanks for looking. Have an awesome day.

Mostly, on my phone.

It's a good method, but I agree, you want to combine stuff. The way I look at it, nothing weathers evenly anyway.

Yep. Same page, graven.

For the upper deck I added sand. I wanted to create a heavily corroded look. Pretty sure I was successful with at least that. Baking sida is like the finest of fine sands. Microscopically small.


Then I went bonkers with the lower bulkheads.


This morning, I Woke up to a dried piece (I sprayed the whole thing down last night with a 30:70 mix of white glue:water to try to seal the baking soda and sand on) and discovered just how batsh!t crazy I went with the corrosion detailing. Hopefully paint will cure some of this madness.

Excellent progress! And don't sweat the current appearance- once you get a lick of paint on I'm willing to bet you'll be very impressed. In addition to the irregular surface, the areas will absorb/take paint differently, depending on what all crud is built p there- natural shades and tones, as well as textures. Great stuff!

Thanks, Cat!

I apologize for how dark these photos are. I took them at night, when I do a lot of my work. Both sides of the main wall are officially primed.


Tada! Now to weather the platform, build more staircases, and plate the ground floor. Hooray...

You forgot, "And to wire an embedded set of LEDs" seriously mate, looking great.
