From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
I’ve completed all of the 40k industrial terrain I bought back in 2017. However every so often Warhammer 40,000 Conquest magazine provides me with the opportunity of a low cost expansion to what I have, such as these pipes:
I think this is the equivalent of a third of a box from GW – maybe half, not sure.
My method for painting these was adopted from some YouTube videos I have been watching about making and painting terrain. I used cheap craft paints for the majority of the painting work:
The black was used to touch up areas the original spray didn’t get to. The burnt umber and the bright orange created areas of rust, which match nicely with the far more expensive paints i used to create the same effect on the tiles the pipes are on here.
The craft paint silver proved too bright and too sparkly to use, so I used a Reaper metallic washed back with good old Nuln Oil. The blue gave the notion that some of this equipment still functions, at least.
If you’re not sure on scale, here are some Adeptus Mechanicus to give you an idea:
So they make useful terrain pieces regardless of whether you are playing a game, making a diorama, or doing some set piece photos.
There will be more Conquest magazine terrain to come!
