3D Space Hulk Board - The Library

Posted by Nedius on July 11, 2010 at 2:30 PM Comments comments (3)

Hello once again!

It's coming to the end of term, and as a teacher I've found myself very busy with little in the way of modeling time! However, to prove that this is still an on-going project, here's some of my latest work!

This has been a LONG process. I need too many books for the shelves for bitz websites to have enough, so I've been making them using thin plasticard. It takes a suprisingly long time to make 10-12 (which is what I tend to make as a batch), and it takes 17-24 to fill a shelf. And there are 9 shelves, 32 cubby holes, and so on.

So, a long haul piece of work. However, the room itself is finished, so can be painted, and each self glued in place as and when I finish one! It will be a few weeks before I can get shots of this (end of term, wedding and honeymoon will sort of fill that time...), but hopefully they'll come soon enough.

More pics available in my 3D Space Hulk Gallery.


3D Space Hulk board - A friend lends a hand!

Hello all!

I'm pleased to share a piece of work done for me by my friend Ali. She's a Space Wolf fan, and she agreed to help me paint my dead marine!

The image is my modelled version of an image from the Deathwing suppliment for the 1st edition of Space Hulk. However, I knew that I'd be completely unable to do this dead Space Wolf justice! Step in Ali!


Ali has done a great job, and I love the look of this! It's not finished yet (it still needs more battle damage, and perhaps a bit of weathering - Will have to do puppy eyes at Ali...).


Anyway, just a nice little update!

Detail Painting

I've some extra free time this week, so I'm dedicating some time to painting the detailing on my 3D Space Hulk board.

This is the results of Monday's painting!

Space Hulk and Genestealers

Posted by Nedius on January 7, 2010 at 9:27 AM Comments comments (0)

Hello all!


I've been plodding along with this project, but it's still well underway!


On tuesday, I spend a good three hours and five cans of black spray undercoating all the board sections I have got finished so far. IT was VERY cold and damp - far from the ideal conditions, but eventually I got it all done! I've even begun adding the main colour scheme! Pics soon, I promise!


For the moment, however, I've added some new images to the Space Hulk Gallery, offering a glimpse of some of the interior detail I've done since my last batch of pics!





One of the reasons for the slow progress on my is that I'm also working on my genestealers! Am waiting with baited breath for my pre-ordered trygon so I can make a genestealer tyrgon! Anyway, here's a shot of a concept base I'm working on. I want to make a full squad of genestealers on a set of bases that can be placed together to make a fully enclosed tunnel, open at one end, so it looks as if they are charging down a corridor towards you. I want to make a presentation plinth that is hinged so the two sides of the 'corrdior' can open up to reveal the squad inside.


Anyway, below is the example I came up with.




As ever, more pics can be seen in my Tyranid gallery.


Of course, feel free to leave comments on any of the pics!

Space Hulk decorating

Decorating a Space Hulk


Today, I've mostly been decorating a Space Hulk.



I've been working on floors and wall panels, and discovering how long a haul this may be. It took a few hours to decorate just one section, although I wouldn't say I was working very quickly. So perhaps I can improve the speed somewhat!


However, I now have a few sections ready to paint, so I may get to do that sometime soon.


Anyway, photos, as ever in the Space Hulk Gallery.


More Space Hulk gaming

My board is still underway. I'm adding a landing pad (for the Anphelion project side of things), and played my first public game of 40k on it.


Here's a sneak preview of what can be found on Page 2 of the Space Hulk Gallery!

More Space Hulk

I've been keeping busy with my Space Hulk board!


You can see lots of pics at my space hulk gallery.

Here's a sample!


3D Space Hulk Board

Well, I've been keeping busy.

With this Saturday being the launch day for the new edition of Space Hulk, I've been busy trying to get the suicide mission layout done in time.

It'll still need lots of decorating work, but the layout is now almost there! All the bases and floor tiles are done, there's just some wall bits need adding. These are, however, sections I'll have to scratch build. No using Cities of Death tiles for these!

Anyway, here's a few pics that have been added to the Space Hulk Gallery.

3D Space Hulk Board

Posted by Nedius on August 15, 2009 at 12:28 PM Comments comments (0)

Well, since I was last on here I've been very busy with various real life projects - DIY, holidays, re-enacting events etc that has kept me away from this page for some time.


However, I've not been idle! Far from it! In my very own fickle way, I've flitted onto a new project; a re-envisaging of my 3D Space Hulk game.


For those who don't know of Space Hulk, it was a board game released by Games Workshop in which one or two squads of heavily armoured Terminator Space Marines fought their way through the ruined corridors of a derelict space ship, known as a 'hulk'. infesting the hulk were hordes of multi-limbed monsters - Genestealers! The humans had the advantage of massed firepower, but were slow and in limited numbers. The genestealers were faster, far more numerous and deadly in close combat. The game was high paced, tense and unbelieveably fun.


As rumours began to abound of a re-release of Space Hulk as part of Games Workshop's September  'Mystery Box', I decided to get ahead with a project that has long been a dream for me - a 3D Space Hulk board. I have been building a modular board set using the Games Workshop's Cities of Death terrain, and am very pleased with the results!


So far, I've built the majority of the board sections needed to place the first mission in the Space Hulk campaign. I've 6 more yet to do. Most/all still need decorating work, to really bring the interiors to life.


Here is a preview:




For more images, hope on over to my Space Hulk gallery!
