Default Cheap Terrain

Does anyone know where you can buy DECENT terrain that can be used in 40K that isn't stupidly priced? (i.e. £12 for 3 pieces of polystyrene for hills : > )

Yeah u can get poystrene from any big item (computer for example - so check old boxes (im not sayin buy a comp for polystrene))

And model shops r very good, i go to one where i purchase other models (trains). There u can get mats with grass, sand flock, trees and rocks very cheap.
Plus u can buy plasticard which is brilliant for makin buildings and other structures

Plus u dont even need a hot wire cutter u can merely shape blocks of polystrene using a craft knife.

There is, it just takes some finding. I can't remember where it was, but one day I found a shop which sold great bunkers, ruined buildings etc for £9. If I found the shop again, I'd go crazy and buy it out! They also did small rocks and things for £3-4. I'll attach a few pics of them now....E-bay has some great terrain available also. The trick to finding good terrain, is to look for railway terrain. It's usually really cheap and looks great.
