Alrighty, i hope to get a sticky on this one.

The idea is that we can post links to stuff like posters, signs, computer screens and everything else that one can print out and use on their terrain. Anything you add in the thread, i'll copy/paste into this post to avoid scrambling through pages of comments.

Here and now due to popular demand, my first contribution.

Eazy's photobucket-ed printout archive:
> Computer screens
> Posters & signs
> Warning signs

Also, you might want to take a look at the TerraGenesis resources section:
> http://www.terragenesis.co.uk/infopages/page5.html

NOTE:
Be careful how you print these buggers. They can be enlarged to a certain point wihtout too much pixelation, but if you stretch them too far, you'll end up with crap^2. Ask for help and ye shall recieve.

Nice. I love the tau-orade.

I'll see if I can dig anything up.

First post edited for easier access to sub albums of my photobucket archive as they don't really show up that well on the main screen... :-)

To give credit where it's due, i don't know who made them all in the first place. I just made Fungus Lager, Tauerade (idea by Caleb&Chris), Big Sausage Pizza, some computer screens and the small warning sign set.

Heres a few A4 pages of some small decals which might or might not be of use.

1: Wanted posters, Direction signs, Bionics ad, warning tape stripes, metal walkway detail.
2: Nucleur (sp) symbols, dirtier darker warning tape, and walkway pattern
3: Larger tread plate like page for cutting up into parts


1: Download
2: Download
3: Download


Might try making more platform and walkway like printouts, so if there are any requests i'd be happy to try and accomodate

I've created a few printouts which can be used along with standard bulkheads to create towers etc.

So far I have made:
Hexagonal tower platform
Assorted Walls
Assorted Floors

All pages are A4 page sized and should work fine printing, cutting and sticking to bits of thin corregated card.
More coming soon...

those are the first things I thought about before ending doing my foamboard underhive project (the one posted in the articles page here on EF), but I scrapped it because of my lack of photoshopping knowledge;

kudos to you darkened, those printable assets are sweet, keep 'em coming as much as you can, and while you're there you could also make some bigger project, or even better: post a tutorial on how to photoshop those things, so that everyone can contribute...

I, for one, would love to lend a hand, but atm I find myself too ignorant to be able to pull off something nice...

btw, a quick question: how thick of a corrugated card are we talking about?

I've seen those grey hard cardboards they use to make book's covers, but I don't know if they're too thick to be connected with GW bulkheads, so I'd like to hear more on where to buy something of the right thickness to glue such prints on; something just like the set of cardboard that went with necromunda's boxed set (who would've thought that??? :D )...

any idea?

I'll get around to throwing some more stuff together soon. heres a quick shot of one level of the hexagonal part thrown together.
Image

I just used the corregated card off the lid of a box of paper.. ... it squishes down anyway due to its structure allowing it so slot in, but is still a bit dodgy.. will experiment a bit more and see what I can find that works well. Feel free to suggest anything you have tried that works.


Will assemble the rest for a demo soon and work on bigger parts, though now that its the weekend, drinking will ensue, so mispent time in work starting monday will allow me to make more parts/create a tutorial...

Yes definitely a tutorial would be great, I have been wanting to add my own stuff for awhile as well.

I would love that Eastern Fringe was the mecca of all the printable card terrain that we could think of for Necromunda...we wouldn't even need that boring old original necro terrain anymore.

If you don't mind, we would love to host your tutorial as well.

Not a problem at all, i'll get working on it first thing Monday morning when I arrive in work ( joys of dossing around as a placement student :D )

I don't actually use photoshop myself, but I do have a copy installed, so will mess around a little and see if I can get something together for you. All the packages are fairlly similar so shouldn't be a problem.


In its rawest form its a case of drawing up your shapes that you want to use to an accurate size, applying some sort of textured fill, then playing around with transpariencies, additional layers and Airbrush until you get something that looks ok... simply look at it as if you were painting up a physical piece of terrain and follow the same digital equilivent steps...

Construction -> drawing out your shapes
Undercoating -> basic colour on the shape
Textured paint -> some sort of patterned fill
Drybrushing / stippling -> airbrush and shadows

I know I'm ahead of time asking this before the release of any tutorial, but I think that with these few leads I could begin even now working on something:

1) the shape: what I'd like to know is in detail how do you trace it, while remembering dimensions and such; do you work in a 1:1 ratio, right? and how do you decide angles and the like? Is there any way to have a measuring grid on the image while working with photoshop? also shortcuts for main operations would be nice...
(the main point would be to know how to be sure I'm creating the 4" line 45° angled with my previous 5" line that's gonna be the border of the shape I'm drawing...)

2) to look for textures, do I just type my search on google image or is there a better source..?

don't kill me, I know I'm a bit overwhelming in my questions :P

Let's start a new thread about this and keep this thread as a repository of links to printable terrain and accessories.

Thanks guys :)
