Default Board-Tau City- Before Paint Pics

Hi

As some of you may know, I am currently working on a board. This Board will feature a HUGE 3x2 Tau city. The other half will be a series of trenches. I am remodeling my house so I have a ton of Styrofoam laying around so I used that for the basis for my project. With each pic I will include a detailed description of each part of the city.

The Front- http://photobucket.com/albums/d74/Wa...t=P1010164.jpg

OK the front. The first level features a fairly large opening for troops to move in and out from. I am planning on making a closing door incase the enemy tries to make a assault on the city. The second level (where the ork is) is where the sentry post and bunkers are. I haven't seen how many guys it can hold but I suspect around 5 sentries. I am also planning on having a couple of gun turrets on this level. The 3rd and last level is where the biggest bunker is. I will cut out holes for the guns to poke out of.


The Top- http://photobucket.com/albums/d74/Wa...t=P1010165.jpg

Behind the walls is where the civilians live. The city has a approximate living space for about 30-50 tau civilians. This area also serves as the barracks. It holds about 30-40 Tau fire warriors. I am planning on painting the circular shapes in the middle to represent the Tau septs(spl). Around the sept circles is where the fire warriors run to get to there stations in case of a surprise attack. You will notice a gap on the right side and I bet you are wondering what that is. That is where the fire warrior can get to the main gate to throw back an assault.

The Side- http://photobucket.com/albums/d74/Wa...t=P1010166.jpg

Not much to see here. The gap where the ork is standing will be where guns are. Thats all for the side. Not very interesting.

That’s all; I hope that you like it.

good! i like the polostyrien for it. though it looks a bit too fortified for tau and perhaps you could join them all together with polyfiller and PVA. nice!

Very useful tip: cover the polystyrene with something like filler before painting, or use very thick paint (like wall paint), otherwise it would look very much like a tau city made out of little golfballs.

Looks nice. Good luck.
