Well my old friend & patron, Dr J(ustin Sipla) has succumbed to the lure(?) of 40K, AND asked me to do some terrain for his gaming group. Dr. J & the Siplans are campaigning on a Desert/Mad Max-style World. SO the first batch of thingies are Southwestern rock pillars:



There seems to be an Ork Infestation here (for size comparison):






Dwellings, ruins, fuel tanks, & slapped together fortifications are all on the agenda. Comments as always would be welcome.   clown

Thanks, Ben! I'm knocking out some irregular rock formations, scree, & such...all of which is giving me ideas for the underground sections connecting to the Graveyard & Shanty Town. It's a matter of one idea feeding another.   affraid  What a Face

The latest addition to Dr. J's Desert World are done, AND here is the disturbing evidence:







The next part will be Man(?) Made Thingies: intact & ruined buildings, storage tanks, & such. Until then your comments & critiques would be most welcome...mostly.  clown

I have the first of the Man-Made pieces primed & ready for some painting. The top section of the soda can tower is an ArmorCast resin piece; all the rest is miscellaneous junk. SO here you go:





I'm not sure where I going from here, but that adds to the excitement. Be that as it may, your comments would be appreciated.  pig

I like both the new rocks and the tower. The tower for now is a little "grey" and clean imo. It could use some inks and such here and there for a weathering-effect.

Please don't take offense, Grim...I always get this reaction. I haven't started the paint job on the tower/fuel tank pieces; the dry brushed white over black is just the way I prime all my pieces. That aside, I'm glad you like the rocks, which are finished, & the towers/tanks, which aren't. Thanks for the reply!   What a Face

Thanks, Ben! It's coming along, although, now that I've come up with some ideas for my own Project, all too slowly.   What a Face

I added a couple more bunker like pieces to the desert industrial scene. They're all primed white on black awaiting some color:

An over head view:


...with some Orks for comparison's sake...& they like having their pictures taken:


The Little Bunker:






The Big(ger) Bunker:








AND the Tank has a storage shed:


Once I get the go ahead, a couple more bunkers may be added along with some general junk. Then paint.
In the interim your kind comments would be most welcome.   What a Face

Beautiful terrain as always. Top notch. Smile. Do you find it a bit more challenging to do sci-fi terrain as oppose to fantasy/wilderness terrain? I do. Mind you, I cut my teeth with terrain building with making sc-fi terrain for Necromunda. It made the fantasy/ mordheim terrain a bit easier to make. Smile

Thanks, flipchuck...glad you like the stuff!   What a Face 
I would agree; i.e., SciFi terrain is decidedly more difficult to make, harder to paint, & color schemes don't some to mind as readily. I have no idea why this is, but it seems to be the case. However, I would love to do a Necromunda &/or Post Apocalypse board or two.
All things considered I'm looking forward to getting back to my own strange Project...I miss the Mushrooms & working on all this stuff has given me time to come up with some fresh ideas for The Project.   clown

OMG! A post apocalypse gaming board is a great idea. Mostly piles of junk and mashed up cars plus a small mad max style shady town. Maybe for roads, have abandon car pile ups on them. Hmmm....I'll have to try that out when I have a bigger place to live to store all of it. Smile. Could use it as a warhammer 40k gamming table. That would be a fun project to do.

AND the first three...possibly the last three...bunkers are done...OH BABY! (the standard reaction to the completion of a commission piece otherwise known as "that release from Hell feeling). SO here are some almost adequate photos of the pieces:

The obligatory overhead shot:


...from the side:


...the somewhat worse for wear bunker:






...the smallest bunker:








...AND the last & largest:








There you have it. The two tanks & shed will be next; then off they go to the Bleak, Dark World that is 40K Iowa...insert a blood curdling scream here. Once the package is sent & until I here what Himself wants next, I'm free to do whatever I want...within the constraints of my present physical condition that is.
Your kind comments, as always, would be most welcome.  clown

Thanks, Ben. Thus far Justin has been ecstatic about the results...I might have to hit him up for a hefty price tag to curb his enthusiasm.   eeexcellent!
