Adepticon WIP Table Shots

Tonight I am play testing one of the scenarios from the 40K Warzone Tournament and I went to take some photos as I set up the table and discovered my memory card was full. I guess that's reason enough for a blog post right? Here's some quick shots of things I've been up to in the last month or so.

I wanted to vary up my GW Cities of Death buildings and arches are a common theme, so I looked in my pile of junk that should be out in the alley with the other trash and I looked in my actual recycle bin and I stumbled upon the humble "cherry tomato tray". The pattern of the plastic involves a series of arches so I decided to clip them out and give them a try. They were then added to an extension that I built onto the top of a Cities of Death building. The end result looked something like this.

Tomato tray and clippers. The tray didn't stand a chance.
Arches in place.
This piece is done for now. Some washes could really add some pop though.
The gateway below, now named Dominion Gate, was actually part of a team tournament display the Nerd Night Crew (which evolved into 2ndCityWarzone) used at Adepticon some 4 years back. I added a pair of bases to elevate it even further and then gave it a little more dry brushing and washes in the recesses to give it a little more depth than it had.

Adjacent to Dominion Gate on either side are sections of park land

 I had a day where I was sick of looking at city terrain and felt stagnant so I packed everything up and started work on the trench boards. These shots show where the opposing trench lines will run. Circles represent where craters will be built into the board. The center diagonals represents the killing field between deployment zones. Rectangles along the trench lines will be dug outs.

That's it for now.

That tomato tray trick is amazing! That's a great way to expand your buildings. So cool.
