Now as many of you who listen to our podcast are aware, our fearless leader relocated midway through the year and the idea having this year's GT was in jeopardy. I took the time to book some additional terrain projects & of course ran several seminars at NoVA.
So when it was annouced the GT was back on, I was super excited as this this an excellent event. Then I realized: I have 3 weeks to create a Demon world!
The early concept was simple: do a NoVA style terrain layout (since the 11th Company GT, November 8th & 9th, in Myrtle Beach SC is a NoVA style event). That means two hills, two ruins, two center blockers, and two difficult terrain pieces.
With the hills & ruins being in oppositye corners, the thought was to to have each of these pieces themed after on of the 4 chaos gods. At center, there would be large towers similar to the opening pages of the codex, with mouths for doors and windows. Lastly, the difficult terrain would be a cross between a volacnic eruption and the earth spewing chaos energies from below.
|This the layout as it would appear on a 4 x 6 table. Did I mention I like my center LoS blcokers to be tall? I scrapped the mouth & face like doors as the holes were too big and did no blcok line of sight, which defeated the purpose of these pieces.|
|Skulls for the Skull Throne! Start with a simple Khorne icon carved out of foam. Paint red, the use a skull stencil and an airbrush. Super simple but time consuming. The temple walls are removable for easy storage.|
|My original plan was to add more blood & skull loose pieces, but my shipment of skulls did arrive in time.|
|The Temple of Excess. In stark contrast to the Khorne piece, this was all about foam cutting. The pattern was rather intricate but it paid off. Like the Khorne temple, each of the walls are removable for shipping & storage|
|Paint job was pretty simple. With more time I would have added more layers of color|
