Default Inquisitional Cathedral (youll see)

Ok new thread as soon as I end my old 1, Lucky everyone

This time I once again have a board too small to play a full game on
1 major difference this 1 is no where near finished

Ok this is the cathedral floor of an abandon Inquisitional building complete with columns
the columns in the upper left and lower right will be damaged and on the ground
board is no where finished all the lines will be dug out

pictures anyone?


in the transfer some of the images became REALLY!!! distorted

in this picture you can see the corner i already cut out the tiles, yes it does suck



the 2 shadowy figures at the bottom are a space marine and a chaos

[glow=yellow,2,300]the real reason i started this string was to ask...
the column bases are made of insulation foam and they need to be painted later what would i use to seal the foam so it can be painted????
i need ideas plz help all[/glow]

the columns look like this

(also you get a peek at my modeling life)

also failed trial I primered this 1 and it really didn't work...




thank you all in advance for all the help I know you all will give me
and as always constructive criticism is always appreciated

Holy poo, that's an awesome piece. You should try to make the Cathedral on tracks, like in the Witchhunters codex!

Well to answer our question about the paint eating the foam. I ave found that only spray paint eats foam. I guess some chemical put into the paint to make it spray easily does not mix well with foam. As long as you use a brush on pain from a can as a primer you should be able to spray it all you want after that sealer coat dries. So just do one coat of brush on to seal the foam then you can do anything you want to it. Hope this helps good luck on the project looks great so far!

Good golly! Thats pretty!

I really like the simplicity of the floor design, yet the detail of teh downed column.

About paint: I believe an airbrush should work for you, as normal water-based paint does not dissolve polystyrene.

Good luck!

My real problem is not the polystyrene dissolving its the look it has when I paint it i need it to be smooth not the disgusting look it has when you paint just as is :

I need something to seal it up so it gets painted smooth (perhaps I could build a styrene shell around it, What you think of that guys? ???)

also thank you for all the positive feed back it was really nice I knew if I had a good Idea and worked hard on it ppl would like it ;D

Ncnids the chemical that eats the foam is the aerosol in the spray can.... but thank you for the advice ill try that
;D


Wait i think I understand.... that coloum is suposed to be downed 2 are being destroyed.... that 1 was first (it dident melt)

very nice.

remember to paint the exposed foam with watered down wood-glue, it seals the whole thing making it easier to transport and also allows you to spray paint over it.
