I also produced a new set of Print & Play tower block templates that will match the very first skins I produced. There are at least 15 buildings that can be created from my current selection and thatís not including the additional 14 templates of more detailed, complex untextured buildings.

So if you would like the new templates this holiday season theyíre available here:
http://40kaddict.blogspot.co.uk/2014/12/terrain-is-everything-hail-omnissiah.html

And all the legacy templates are available here
http://40kaddict.blogspot.co.uk/2011/02/terrain-is-everything-standard-template.html

Should you also feel inclined are also a variety of free downloads including wound, objective, psychic power markers and not to mention a free terrain mat template should one have access to a large scale printer and you like Red Planet battlefields.
http://40kaddict.blogspot.co.uk/p/free-downloads.html

Anyway, hope itís of use. All the best for the new year

I'm not sure if anyone actually is using these but I keep churning them out in the off-chance they're of use. This is the tall version of the green marble tower which should bring the 4 building choicse [if you include the wide 2 storey with standard 2 storey rectangular configuration] to your tabletop. In total that's 12 templates.



I've another couple of skins started but not worked up but I think it's may be more useful to look at some different shaped buildings for a little more variety on the battlefield than just the colour of them.

Anyway, the link is here:

And you can get the rest of my templates in the STC tab.

This may be thread necromancy but I'm still getting folk come to my website from these links. unfortunately I lost my log-in details so I hadn't been able to add some of the newer templates to this post, but new ones do exist. Fritz's original concept of Print & Play has continued to inspire me to produce simple, box buildings; ideal for Line of Sight Blocking in 8th edition.

Here's a new one:

It's that time again, a FREE building template to print out and attach to foamboard for some simple LoS blocking terrain. It's basically a box that's already coloured with a different building template. Nothing fancy, just enough to get you going if you're starting out in the hobby or on a budget.

Wickes has peach coloured insulation foam, although a bit more 'trade' than Homebase or B&Q they'll still serve the average joe in the street.

Finally got round to completing the last of the black building templates, the great thing about this one is you can combine it with the first building to get a wide square building or a narrow rectangular one [good lord I actually forgot the word 'rectangle' then, it took me two minutes to dig it out of my brain, how does something like that happen? Maybe my Dad's Alzheimers legacy is kicking in! still moving on...]

It's my Birthday and traditionally I give away freebie on my blog. This year is no different and I've the tall version of the black tower to share with you. So make use of it to make your terrain that much more diverse:

The added bonus is you can alternatively use the first building template and make a rectangular building

And the next FREE Print and Play building template is available, it's the same style 2 storey building but it has a different colour scheme, because I'm all about diversity. The easy way to make them is print them out onto an A4 Sticky label, attach to foamboard, cut out and glue together. You can choose whether to keep or remove the windows or indeed hack at it to make your own ruins instead of [shock horror] an actual free standing undamaged building in the 40k universe!

Hope this is of use, please feel free to share the links with your firends, loved ones or even your arch-nemesis. Please don't offer it to Tyranid players, we will cry, I'm not going to blame the Codex but yes it's the Codex's fault. In fact I firmly believe the fact half Britain is being thrashed by a 'superstorm' is thanks to the Tyranid Codex!

Discussion: Terrain / Re: Scratchbuilt Tyranid Capillary Towers.
« on: February 03, 2014, 07:53:40 AM »
It was Hallowe'en when I first started in earnest creating my scratchbuilt Capillary Towers and 3 months on they have their modular Landing Pad complete too. I've mentioned before the walls are less of a concern as I can create a simple counter that will say shielded/unfurled. I've a lot of Termagants [and perhaps a Tervigon] to paint before Throne of Skulls in March so the walls are a lower priority although I will progress with them when I can.



One interesting development that's happened since I've been working on it is an interpretation of it's rules - a friend of mine vame up against someone running a Skyshield with his nids. He also had a Venomthrope in there and was taking a 2+ cover save. I was adamant this wasn't possible as the Skyshield offers a 4+ invulnerable and that wouldn't stack with the Venomthopes Shrouded rule. However, in the discussion I kind of realised that with the walls/shields up you probably are entitled to a cover save. Now you'd probably have it as 4+, because it's pretty much like an Aegis but technically Fortifications offer a 3+ cover save [BRB pg18] so you could claim a 1+ [although it would essentially be a 2+ given you always fail on a 1] cover save. So, having been convinced he'd been swindled I kind of reversed my way of thinking, what do others think?



Of course I don't have walls so that makes the debate less of an issue, maybe if GW hadn't made them look like the Defence Line it wouldn't be open to interpretation...



There's something really quite cute about this particular tower, in a 'covered with alien gore and filth' kind of cute

The Landing Pad is super quick to paint, given it's just an oversized version of my Red Planet Basing with just a few changes to the solours involved and afew extra washes applied the whole thing is so easy thaks to using big decorating brushes.



Following the initial coats for the flesh bits I decided to add a ring of Bonewhite for central support to the Sphincter entrance:





Work on the detachable walls continues as well, but as a lower priority. The Landing Pad can function without the walls, I can jsut make a marker saying whether it's sheilded or not. In the mean time I have to paint at least another 20 Termagants for March, so they will take priority.



Anyway, more pictures and in depth explanations are on the blog so point your cogitators there should you feel inclined: http://40kaddict.blogspot.co.uk/2014/01/nids-part-124-project-y-scratchbuilt.html

And the Skyshield progresses also, first up the pad in situ, now the clay is all dry:



Some interesting ideas playing around with my Aegis Defence Line in front of the Skyshield:



Next I added some support strands, leading from the Capillary Towers to the central sphincter:



And a close up of the texture:

And the Capillary Towers are pretty much complete now



They turned out a lot better than I'd hoped and with a few more coats of gloss varnish in the 'male' towers reclamation pools they'll be done



It's been quite and adventure along the way, not least making sure they would fit with 'project y' - the Skyshield Landing pad addition



The pad will be the next part to share with you all, the detachable walls are a lower priority as I can potentially play with it without the walls



But I'll be getting the pad done asap

In an age where the Great Devourer has become more like a mawkish teenage anorexic self harmer at least there's one thing you can rely on, until the FAQ it to death - my Tyranid Capillary Towers. Here's what a little paint can do as most of the base coats and washes go on:



And the really big ones:



And a close up of the gestation sacs in the female towers [hey if they can ret-con that they don't have DNA I can ret-con my own fluff that there are sometimes gender specific bio-forms]

Not quite game markers but still something FREE to close out 2013 [good riddance] and usher in 2014. How about a free Battle Mission, that's right a FREE new way to play 40k [cos like we haven't had enough of those this year have we?]. OK, download, see what youthin, if you're all good I may think up some more.
