Lovely looking game and some great scenery on this thread. Would love to see your crew models too…

Thanks, they are a bit of a mismash of brands and kitbashing.

 Great to see the terrain altogether.Really inspiring work on it all.

 Very nice mix of miniatures too.Like the one with the flamer backpack and goblin head with what looks like a Rogue Trader era plastic Orc shoulder pad behind his head.

Its a Mantic Veer-myn body and arms with a GW goblin head and a Space marine shoulder pad. I'm not sure about the legs, they could be Cadian. I used a few Veer-myn torsos for my rebels/miners and they look great.

Indeed. Awesome looking board and a very enjoyable game. This is what it's all about.

Lovely terrain, nice looking minis too. I like some of those kitbashes you've put together, very inventive.

The remaining platforms are finished. These are only about 10mm high and constructed using mostly cardboard and XPS foam, with some textured plasticard.











I'll paint these and the taller ones in the same batch.

I'm working on a new faction for a 6 player game I'm hosting soon. These are Avian figures by CP models. Quite simple sculpts but with lots of character and who doesn't like Chicken! These will be one of the factions called the Poultry Liberation front.



I also got the Avian Ambassador figures.

I'm catching up on some recently finished terrain, and the platforms are all finished. I wanted to paint both sets at the same time so their looked similar.

I painted them with a undercoat of mod podge and grey gesso. Then I painted all the grey with an airbrush and also highlighted the panels and edges with the airbrush. Next I "chipped" the edges of all most of the panels with white on a sponge, followed by some olive green chipping. Finally I added some brown and green washes and then rust effects using a Vallejo rust wash.

Good work there.
I would like to see them in a game, probably with gaps
between them. Would cover more table, add interest,
provide some cover (in the 'trenches') & show off the side detail.

Thanks. I have some pictures of a game I'll be posting in a few days.

Yeah those platforms are great and scream "high rise fight" or place water under them for port stuff.  Excellent.

I was thinking of water or other liquids as well. I originally thought about platforms in the clouds but decided it would be too much work.

Recently I ran a 6 player game of Planet 28 on a 3x3ft board, using the terrain featuring this thread (actually it was only about 1/2 the terrain so I could fill a 6x4ft table I think). Its nice to see it down on the table and being used.

Here's a teaser with the board setup and some of the starting factions with a game report to follow.
