Let this be your last battlefield: 40k terrain

Greetings all.

It occurred to me that I haven't yet posted any pictures of my terrain. This post will rectify that oversight...

I actually painted all of this a couple of years ago. Since then I'm sad to say that it has mostly just been sitting in boxes on top of my wardrobe, as there isn't a great deal of space to make use of it in my pokey little flat. I'm pleased to say that the missus and I will be moving to a bigger place within a month - a place with a guest game room. This will give me plenty of opportunity to update and, most importantly, use my terrain and board.

Without further ado, some pictures:

Temple of Skulls
Craters - Moonscape, I think
Arcane ruins. Not much use as a 40k terrain piece, sadly.
Everything together on my Realm of Battle board.
I'm really looking forward to getting some more games in on this board. Before that happens though, I need to update my terrain to bring it more in line with suitable 40k terrain. The first thing to be fixed is the woeful lack of Line of Sight blocking terrain. I've got a few things planned to rectify this, so look out for those in the future.

I was tempted to go with the standard 40k ruins for most of the board, but as I already had this little lot painted up, I thought it might be a good opportunity to go for more of a "Chaos Wastes" kind of vibe. I've picked up some GW woods and a bunch of rocky outcrops, plus a few bits of scatter terrain. I'm really looking forward to getting back on with this project when we're in the new place. Look out for WIP pics in some future posts.

Ta ta.

  1. Alex here again, looking good as always mate! So, you're moving eh? Let me know if you want a hand shifting stuff dude, I'll help if I can. Btw, I've taken (nicked?) inspiration from you dude, and gone started my own blog... fun isn't it!! Mine is all about the Praetorians at the mo, but looking to expand the scope once it is up-to-date. You can check me out on :-)
