Default 3d Space Hulk and/or Kill Team Table



I made the corridors and rooms out of drain protectors instead of rain gutters like the GW site suggests, this gives the grated floors already plus wider hallways for kill team whilst still good for space hulk.



close up of one of the bulkheads, I will add some more detail to these and post later.



"hey where does my inferno pistol go?"

I have plans to add interior walls to the set so that the rooms don't seem so open. So far the project is starting to come together personally I can't wait to get some stealers and termies on the board and start quoting "aliens". stay tuned.

That is one helluva a start!

Are you planning on going with modular pieces for customization?

Looks great! Where did you get those metal floors? I've never seen drains like that!

Thx, yeah modular was the intention but if i build the interior walls that will become impossible. Also the gutter protectors can be found at your locar DIY store like Lowes, they are plasic so thier easy to cut( aslo pretty cheap for about 5 bucks you get 6' of this stuff!)..i just painted it mytheral silver to make it look like deck grating.

Very nice!

Looks are very space hulkish, and looks like it gives enough room for kill team.

So what are your expansion plans?

First; I gonna mount it on 1/4" foam board, the corridors are pretty long and flimsy so adding a base is a must esp. to prevent warping.

second; walls, I want to give it less of an open feel by adding interior walls for the rooms and corridors. I bought some 2" vents to add some cool detail for the walls.

Third; details, need to develop that boiler room in the middle so I have painted some pill bottles just need to glue them down. Also just odd bits for the hallways I want to have a feeling that a desperate last stand took place. I will continue to add pics to this thread as it develops should be a fun project.

Just an idea in the hall way if you want to make it look like a last stand took place maybe some make shift barricades and a couple of butched bodies >.

I'm sorry but the holes in those sheets are way too big. The figure on the photo can easily stick his head through one of the holes. Perhaps you should consider another sheet with smaller holes or putting cardboard or something directly under them?

I have a way to solve this....

Put a strip of card or somthing flat through the middle of the walk ways and leace the edges with the holes, looks better that way.

Stage 2:* Int. Walls

I made walls out of 1/4" foam board, straws looted from starbucks and closet spools.


"I have a bad feeling about this drop.."

"We are still Arbites and we have a job to do..."

really adds to the rooms


ok so heres what it looks like so far I have masking tape holding the walls in place whislt the glue dries.
BTW guys I agree with you about the floors...I have a solution for that as well stay tuned for stage 3....details
