In the near future myself and Darien will be slowly showing pics of our Legio Custodes group army. Before we do this I wanted a suitable board to show them on. I decided that as one of the first conflicts to start in the Horus Heresy was the Webway War, that I would try to create a board which represented the collected Visions version of the Webway.
The exact shape and form of the Webway is not fully understood by the Eldar of the present day. Known by some as the Labyrinth Dimension, the Webway has been envisioned by mortal minds in myriad ways. Some describe it as a galactic tapestry of shimmering strands, others a maze of glowing tunnels, or the veins of some vast living entity. All such accounts fall short of the truth, for the Webway defies neat categorisation. It is an elegantly crafted realm located between realspace and the Warp, analogous to the surface of a still, dark pool, or a fine silk veil drawn across something foul.
And here is what I have done tonight;
Start with a piece of 2ft by 4ft white sided mdf. Cut some random shapes from card.
Spray the curved edges with bursts of chaos Black. Then stagger the card in places to create connections and winding areas. Also when removed, spray along the line you have just created again to soften the edges.
Ending up with something like this.
Then spray pyroclast orange over areas like so.
Then a green ink (I used coat d' arms ink wash green). Then a few areas of Eidolon purple.
Then the fun part. Painting white lines:
I did a few spurts of white spray to soften certain areas.
And here is a Legio Custode on the board.
And this is what I based it on.
