Show us your Buildings, Castles, Towers, Scenery & Terrain
« on: February 24, 2013, 08:21:11 PM »
I searched around and really only found two short threads about this, and neither really got off the ground.

I've seen some pretty amazing empire specific terrrain in threads here, and some just standard WHFB (non-empire specific) stuff too. I really enjoy the 'show us your' threads, so I thought it might be a good idea to collect some of this stuff for centralized viewing. Could be inspiring to all, and especially new players.

Care to pile on?

I'll start with a few of mine....

Resin houses from Armorcast. Classic empire style, for my money:





An Inn, from the same range:












Some tribal houses from the fringes of the empire (Hudson & Allen scottish villiage sets)







Keeping a watch over the borders:



The forgotten heroes of a forgotten war:





Fences for farms etc. I like having livestock pens as impassible terrain in my battles. I don't know why :)



A broken down tower, for the local kids to play in. Except when the patrols are nearby.



More ruins from the remote border counties



A shrine



And since Mordheim, IS in the empire, some of my ruins from that blasted town:


















And the most vile thing I've ever made, a corrupted cathedral for my undead hordes.  I guess it could fit into mordheim, so I'll include it here, even though its a bit more out of character ;)

(forgive the slapdash details... I made it in about 1998, and it was the first time I'd ever attempted anything like this :) )



 LETS SEE MORE!  :D

Fantastic! My favourite is the Celtic style ruins with a single warrior. Very nice composition. That fountain is really great too!

I'll try to post something here later this week.  :::cheers:::

I love the Mordheim ruins. A nice change from half-timbered buildings (which I'm also guilty of - I've a half-finished Perry cottage on the painting table).

I also love scenery, there is nothing that adds fluff better than scenery IMHO. I have always made scenery when started any army, it helped me to get into the theme of that army)I also have 40K Nid stuff and did that too)
A few of my terrain pieces, one day I will get around to getting pics of the rest and finishing some others in progress, I still have a Witchfate Tor. Tower of Sorcery to base and paint up

I am going to sell these two as they were the first I had built and the scale is too big for my liking, if you could get the horse through the door you have enough head clearance to ride around inside lol
The top of the Tower is removable

and just off in the badlands a few Orc things I have made


Then make three times that. It should be enough for half the roof Glue
You could certainly amass quite a collection of testicles

Cool stuff indeed!! I've only done 40k terrain I recent years so my showcase is somewhat more humble.

Here is a Merchant manor I build from cardboard a few years back. Also a Warhammer tower from the 90ies.

I really think that the balconies and the 2 small outhouses/addon lean-to add alot of empire-resque feel to the building.









The house comes apart in 3 pieces, can see more pictures in the blog in the signature.

I've got too much to show here, I think. I have/had a thread dedicated to terrain, but it's been quiet for a while. My goal was a bunch of generic terrain, plus all of the WFB specific terrain...

I like the tower-hillside combo, Swan, neat idea nicely done. 

Steveb- really like that plaza too!


Your wallowing pigs are great Maza :)  Nice cemetary too... there have been a dearth of really good cemetery fences out there in 28mm too, so nice work with those. I almost picked them up but wanted something taller. I have some from ... Lemax I think? That are a little /too/ tall, and I've been putting off cutting them down to size and pulling my finger out on a cemetary of my own.  One of these days. :/

Here's the terrain piece I've worked on most recently, last of a batch being made for my Tilean campaign. It's a ruined tower, and should feature as a centrepiece in the first battle.

Here you can see how I had to construct the ruins (fallen masonry and half burned timbers) on the base so that they would be inside the ruined tower ...



Here are a couple of completion shots - I wish I'd taken one straight downwards so you could see the wrecked wooden floor and the rubble down below more clearly. I got the burned wood effect by using bits of wood, painting them, then actually burning them!





And here's a first attempt at an atmospheric shot ...




Photobucket has graciously resurrected my pictures, so my collected works thread is suddenly working again - see http://warhammer-empire.com/theforum/index.php?topic=38528.0. To see my slowly growing website go to https://bigsmallworlds.com/
