Default i have a campain but dont knwo how to make most of the terrain...

hello, im making a campain and i need some tips on how to make things.

the races in the campain are tau, chaos, nids, and the imperium (marines or gaurd)

the problem i have is, i dont know what anyones terrain shuld look like, except the tau, and them i dont know how to make.

can u help me out? the theme im going for is a tau planet, with a tau city, and mainly an outdoor foresty kinda look, but also i need some tau buildings for the city.

i also need some things to represent that nids have been, so like spoores everywere or somthing.

the chaos theme is that they are attacking the tau planet, so i need some crashed star ships and some outposts for the chaos.

the imperium i just need some landed ships, not destroyed.

thanks, but i was looking for a bit more.

the chaos is more of a iron warriors group. i need like evil looking space ships and such, all blown up with explosions around them.

most of that space marine stuff looked more like it was on a planet owned by the imperium or somthing, not that it was like an attack force.

i think im gonna use the tau planet from GW, but i still have no way to make the rest of the stuff.

the nids i want to look more mutated and stuff.

buy some IG tanks and make them looked wrecked. it makes good terrain. take a dremel and make holes in the armor. also, take green stuff and make it look like the armors bent.

I agree with the wrecked tanks, just take a pair of clippers to a poorly made leman russ don't go over the top though, then spray black i painted mine roughly with red gore, and then drybrushed with silver

Tau terrain making is described here.

Basically you use whatever you can turn into believable terrain, such as flower pots, toilet paper rolls, cut sprue and so on..

wrecked vehicles can be made from polystyrene and/or cardboard.
What you want is the impression of a vehicle/building, not necessarily the real thing. Measures and scale is important of course, but getting a Leman just to cut it up??? That's a suggestion from someone with more money than sense!

Good luck however you do it, and remember to post the result.

for the tau how bout just use that pinky looking foam stuff and a hot wire cutter also somewhere in terrain there is a tau sentry tower, so that should help you out a bit for the Tau, For the other ruins try this in the rulebook page 189 is a way to make a ruined city in an afternoon basically just photocopy it onto either thick card or foamboard and paint away, also on page 199 is instructions on making bunkers and on pg 202 crators. These pages are in the newest rulebook out hopefully you or your mates should own one if not sorry i couldnt help.

Here ya go.

Tau Terrain

I've got an idea for you for your Chaos terrain. Seeing as Chaos is attacking the planet, why not make landed/crashed drop pods. You could also make a Chaos gate and surround it with barricades and sandbags. ( you could go with the story line that Chaos Cultists summoned the powers of Chaos to the planet. )
