So fancied a separate thread for terrain to my Minis. Which I also really need to update... nothing special here just sharing helps the project mojo.

For a long while I've just used the newmunda boards with some MDF walls, or shop terrain. Anyway looking at a new campaign away from the flags club so thought I ought to finally build some proper terrain.

Luckily I've been hoarding some GW terrain for this purpose. But still from zero to a full board feels daunting, especially given my slow painting record.

First shortcut. Repurpose my MDF wall tiles by cutting up some ZM tiles to make some roofs. This a) makes cost of ZM tiles go much further and I feel is more modular than a fix tile setup. Also should be easier to store. Really surprised haven't seen others doing this?

Secondly, Sector Mechanicus terrain fills a table quickly though offers little cover. I want to build several 'buildings' that can then be rearranged later. Currently only glued the two larger tanks (sprayed red & yellow)


I have the DU terrain but not sure how best to incorporate it. Seems too expensive to create large structures plus would be very uniform. So just using it to make some staircases to place alongside other buildings. Curious how other people use it as FB only shows full tiles which I'm not keen on, unlikely to get more

Anyway, posted the initial table. Not very original but good enough to attract people back so I can start a fresh campaign.

Biggest shortage, after test game seems to be ramps,ladders and staircases to climb and connect terrain. Anyone got good suggestions for plastic walkways?

Once I fix that I can focus on painting and building some more creative pieces.
 
Ive used model railroad bridges and tresses as walkways. A bit of sidewalk textured plastic sheeting hides the tracks.
I’ve seen people use the barricades from the recent boxed sets laid on their sides and glued together as walkways.

I have started one of these as I have 3 barricade sprues. Currently looks a little forced 2 square barricades with a door from a third barricade overlapping one edge to breakup the regularness of it. Planning on smoothing down a couple of sprue rods to become lengthways supports (thematic supports as it's pretty sturdy as is.)

It's in the "works but needs something else" pile...
