For those of you who have been lucky to have visited Warhammer World then you will be aware of the amazing City board built using the tiles available from Forgeworld.
For a long time I wanted to emulate the board as best as I could and collected tiles as I could.
I wasn't satisfied though with making an 'exact copy' and have had a good look at the board over several visits.
The question was how?
First off was the large building at the top of the post with the laser cannon. Who doesn't want a massive building with a defence laser on their board?
There are few things that I wanted to change. The main one was the height of the bridge.
The problem with it for me was simple. The FW one was built before Knights. I wanted to be able to get a Cerestus Chasis Knight under so I went up a tile.
Next was how do I get it to sit on the statue platform?
The tile at Warhammer World I believe has been slightly modified. I built the lower floor for the tower first so I could change mine too.
First problem though, it was going to be too big.
So I decided to make a mould of the statue plinth corner and make four copies. I also had to cut away some of the resin too.
Here you can see the new green stuff additions:
I also decided to add some additional detail using steps from another tile.
So here is what the standard tile looks like:
And with my additions:
Just by adding these small additions it is now different from the original and it allows the building to sit perfectly.
As some of the more astute amongst you have probably already realised, the building pictures were taken before the last stage of painting I did on my tiles. So my next post will have a closer look at the buildings I have made and this large one in particular.
I hope you've enjoyed the read if you have any questions feel free to put them in the comments below.
Until next time.
