Default cheap Tau terrain

I am very cheap and poor right now, so I was wandering how could I make some inexpensive tau terrain. I would like to make things like barricades and bunkers and stuff like that. I found a sheet of 4 feet by 2 feet and .5 inch thick foam board (that might come in usefull). Also could anyone post or give me a link to some pictures with some ideas for tau terrain?

I don't want to have to edit any more posts.

GOD

Thanks.
dose anyone own, or can remember the article in white dwarf 309 about those wedge shaped tau barricades? If so, how do you make them? I lost my copy of that white dwarf.

Please use the spell checker! That was bordering on incomprehensible!

To do that you need to host your images somewhere like Photobucket, then paste the photo 'IMG' link into your post on Tau Online.

Welcome to the Forums!

I suggest get some polystyrene from your local electrical store. It already comes in Tauish shapes, they are bound to have some...

OK, we do have bionicle in aus, go to the lego section of MrToys.

If you happen to live in brissbane have a look at some of our highway over passes, I think they have a very tau'ish appearence.

Polystyrene packing from tv's and dvd players are good. Carefull what paints you use on it though.
