Wheeeeee :) sorry being childish, but its nice to get paid to do your hobby. So i recently got contacted about making some 40K terrain for a gent in Edinburgh; he has a few bits and bobs of terrain (GW – Bastion, Aegis defense lines, and four 3rd edition corner ruins) and plays Space Wolves so would like winter themed terrain. So after a bit of mulling i came up with this design sketch, and a price of £150 (quite cheap as i have a load of stuff in the cupboards i need to clear).
Yeah i know it’s not Picasso but it gets some idea’s down on paper allows me to visualise what i need to build. Doing a design sketch also allows me to get a balance of enough LOS block to Ruins & Scatter Terrain, which is important for a well rounded 40K terrain set.
Also this commission allowed me to pimp the new ‘mouse pad’ material gaming mats that seem to be going around at the moment. Having played x-wing miniatures on one of these i can definitely confirm that they are the future of wargaming as they are a great comprimise between a great visual look for your games and the convienience of a storable gaming surface: http://www.urbanmatz.com/p/193/snow-territory-6×4
Anyhoo so here are some work in progress pics of the terrain so far:
Hope this amuses
