Default Ork Cityfight/Generic Table

Hey guys,

It came to my attention that I now have enough room to set up a table in the back of my house, so...why not!
I want something different yet functional, so ill be making an ork themed board.


Ill be making enough buildings to be used for cities of death, as well as enough other stuff to be used as a generic 40k board.

Some ideas so far are:
-mushroom forests
-referencing dawn of war buildings
-beer keg objective markers
-an ork pub
-a 'mek shop'
-a squiggoth paddock





To start things off....

I bought three mdf board from Bunnings(probably australia only..) for $12 each. Put together theyre exactly 47" by 71"(close enough!). I chose to have three separate boards for easy storage.


The boards were then covered in 2 layers of sand with pva glue, then a friend and I undercoated them black(we used up 5 cans of spraypaint!).



We then used some grey paint to lightly drybrush the surface, then, because we got tired, we used white spraypaint in patches to make the ground look more uneven. We then applied a layer of watery black ink to the whole bunch.



The next thing is to detail these boards with static grass and twisted metal chunks. Once thats done we can start pumping out the terrain. Hope you enjoy the progress!

Considering theyre the most 'successful' blokes around, and the suckers hoon around in space hulks with friggen teleporters, im sure they can whack up a couple of mud buildings ;D




Im about halfway through adding static grass and picking out little things with browns....should be able to post pics later tonight.

Very cool! Nice and easy table construction so far! I may bjust steal this method to create my own table.

Right now I have plywood painted green, but I definitely need a cityfight board ready made soon.

Just added a few bits of scrap metal and patches of static grass.




Will be starting terrain building next week. The first stuff will probably be forests, craters and a squiggoth paddock(referring to jurassic park)!

judging by the size of your squiggoth, it looks to be a bit small (the table)... will you be adding to it?

I wouldn't say that - 6'x4' is a reasonable size for most battles. Still, I would recommend going up to 8'x6' at least to allow you to play bigger games. BTW, the board looks sweeeeet so far. Can't wait to see what kind of Orky buildings you come up with.
