Awesome as always Cancer.

Walled walkways are always a good idea, esp if you mix in a few walls that are so high that the models can't sit there and shoot down at models below.

The WIP building looks familiar, is that another idea inspired from the EF? Where is its central part from? It looks pretty neat and I was thinking of making something similar when I saw the original... I never did find anything to use for making it.

The current WIP was inspired by AncientSociety and the necro terrain that he produced. When I was starting to produce my terrain, I found that AncientSociety and Parasitic Studios to be quite inspiring.

The central part is from the Pegasus Hobbies Power Plant box #4909. Lots of pipes and bits to use.

I decided to only put a wall/railing on one side of the walkways so that if someone tries and plants themself behind it, then there is always the chance that a ganger can work their way around and shoot them.

Outstanding work as always Cancer ! I may have order some diamond pate as well, seeing as how good it turned out.

Anyway, really cool terrain, would love to have a game on it, yadda yadda... Do keep us updated. :)

That is an incredible piece of work. I really like all the elevated areas, catwalks, and platforms. Very nice scenery.

Well, my shipping containers arrived from New Zealand (only 4 days and during the Christmas period. Good service with an email describing how the order was being processed by a real person rather than pure automation – I like this).

Containers themselves need to be filed of flash, and I cleaned them in soapy water (much like I do with forgeworld resin) to ensure that there was no resin powder etc on them. The resin used is very soft. Half of the panels were a little warped, so I took a hair dryer to them (reheated and then flattened to have them as straight as possible).

For the front doors I added some L shape plsaticard on the inside so that the doors had something to glue to. I used model aeroplane glue for the most part (although it didn't really want to melt to resin to create a great join). Most success was with the "paint on" model aeroplane glue as it really melts the surfaces up. Before gluing I sanded the surfaces to ruff them up so as to create a better bond.

I also used some small hobby "G clamps" on the sides of the container whilst they were drying to ensure that they remained as square as possible. The glue I was using did not dry instantly (takes about 20 - 30 minutes), so if the containers were touched in this time, then they would collapse like a deck of cards.

Assembled the first container as a template. From then on, I mixed and matched various container panels to get the best fit possible.

Overall, I like the look of them.

Guess now I will have to stop playing Total War – Napoleon (very addictive) and finish the panel.

The business is IronHalo

Not cheap. About $9.50 US each + Postage

https://ironhalo.net/store//catalog/pro ... cts_id=123

I originally looked at the shipping containers for AT-43 but these are hard to come by and are also not cheap to buy. In the end, AT-43 containers would have been to wide for the area that I have on the panel, so the IronHalo ones have worked out well.

Those containers look amazing! I was going to scratch build some but am changing my mind.

Very, very, very interesting stuff there cancer.

Being a first-timer at the terrain-building biz, you gave me some insight paired with some uneasiness, seeing as I will probably never get near your level of expertise :wink:

I'm hoping to start working on some terrain of my own in the near future, and I can tell you're going to be my chief inspiration.

Thanks for the compliment – It will be an honour to help. Feel free to PM me with any questions.

My inspiration was:
Ancientsociety
Parasitic Studios (http://www.parasiticstudios.com/gallery7.htm)

I still consider that I am still learning (as this has been my first major attempt at terrain). I find it can be a bit of “trial and error”, like finding out which glue works best with resin, plasticard, PVC etc etc.

I found that terrain can be done quickly with the 40k Imperial City kits and a spray gun. Minimal detailing can look very good. I have seen some nice work done this way. I on the other hand I enjoy adding/painting little details which makes for a longer construction process.

Bulkheads are still pretty easy to come by as is plasticard (depending upon how you plan to build your terrain). I think at the end of the day it all comes down to your budget and the desired results.

Four of the shipping containers are now painted. The remaining two containers have been painted, but await some graffiti to make them look more complete.

Most of the containers have been sponge painted with:
Tamiya Gun Metal X-10
GW Codex Grey

To get the white for the medic container:
* spray black undercoat (oil based as it sticks better to resin)
* Dry brush Vallejo German Grey
* Dry brush GW Dheneb Stone
* Dry brush Vallejo white
* Sponge paint Tamiya X-10 Gun Metal
* Sponge paint GW codex grey
* Watered down beastial brown hand painted to provide rust marks
** I found that although it required a few different coats, that by using these colours it created a very dirty and worn look (just painting it white would have looked to new and clean).

Once again Cancer you have produced some awesome terrain, and once again I have to add to my to make terrain list. The container boxes are looking fab and complement the crane 100%. Have you made any of the container boxes with doors that will open?

I totally need a little free time in my life to devote to gaming, you are just too damn inspiring!
