Started on some scenery for my 40k/Necromunda games. I'm posting here in an attempt to spur myself on and actually finish them!

I poked holes in the side and then glued them with a hot glue gun.

Its funny I never bothered making one like that in the Good Old Days but now they're gone, I have a hankering to go ols School. :D

It about 45' x 16' so its big. One day when I clear enough room I'll but 3 8' x 4' boards together and have a massive game, but until then 8'x4' is still coolio.

LOL! Yes, I know the feeling. Except my wife is more like a berzerker... she rages on a 2+.

Any new updates on the tower? I am curious how its coming along, as I have plenty of old margarine / cool whip tubs kicking around. I'm curious how you got the paint to stick to the smooth plastic.

i wonder if spreay glue or sealant and a quick coat of spraypaint will do the job? all my plastic straws on my stuff lasted about a week before they looked like crap

Here's the tower with a bit of blue paint on it, I'm not ecstatic about the colour so it might become a terracotta tower or some other colour.
