Default My city table. (Lots of pics)

Here are some shots of my newest try at a city table. There are still a lot of the buildings that donít have paint on them yet as youíll see, and there are a lot of buildings that also are not pictured.

Here are the two tables apart from each other, so I can have two games running without too much crowding. The tables where built on around a $70 dollar budget including the materials to make the buildings



Here they are butted together for a larger game, the streets are actually all painted on to plastic toppers that I just take off or cover over with a table cloth for non city games. I tried to make the table as modular as possible and the roads on the toppers are measured so that the toppers can be rotated for variations in the streets.



Here is a sample of a full 8 foot city table. All the buildings are on a plasticard footprint. Park type areas are placed using squares of green material with trees and bushes dotting them. Some stratagems I have added are the large fences you can see on the left side of the board, and planks that arenít pictured that can be used to link buildings together.




This is just a random shot of a smaller 4x4 game.



So what do you all think? My game room is a little cramped I know, but I am trying to work with what I have hehe. Any Ideas on improvements to the toppers or ideas for different types of buildings would be great.


Thanks for looking!

Richard

Awesome, some Dark Eldar coming this way!!!

anyways, the buildings look as though they should be more painted than they are, maybe adding a few small details and adding more depth into the buildings would make them better looking. Just my thoughts on it

I do like it, but maybe you should get rid of the model cars, as i'm pretty sure no one would be driving through the streets where a war is taking place.

Also i think the different coloured building look way to cartoony. Maybe you should paint them all grey or black and add some depth to them as well.

the buildings are to cartoony. also, make some ruble piles.
also, this is a question for every one, do they have cars in
the year of 40000? I'd think they'ed use large buses,sort
of like trains, only with wheels. and lots of side walks.

i would like to think some kind of grav car maybe as well as ones with wheels,remember reading in a 40k novel(Traitors hand,cain series)that there was a veichle that could hover a bit I guess(thats how I read it anyway,will read again)...but as most tanks(not counting eldar or tau,there to different) in 40k use treads,why wouldn't there be cars with wheels or sophisticated car of a sort?

Transportation is less of an issue when you work 24/7 chained to your station with a IV tube jammed straight up your (figure it out for yourself).

I looks good. The buildings just need more detail and more ruble.
