Excellent work on the terrain. I'm impressed with the little details you put in, e.g., the lasgun tripod. (Any other military veterans remember making one with two other friends, using rifles?)

Where'd you get the posters on the billboard and the buildings' walls?

Wolf Scout- Catachan barking toad eggs+ Thousand Sons Marine= Fun! (Wolves of Catachan)

Warhammer 40,000+ Star Wars- Rian Johnson- Reylo= AWESOME! (Knights of Renaissance)

Reasons to use the Steel Crusaders ('Codex: Space Marines' supplement) or the Iron-hearted Angels ('Codex: Blood Angels' supplement): Because you think giving Sternguard Veterans a heavy bolter wtih special issue HEAVY BOLTER ammunition is ALMOST as much fun as shoehorning an Earthshaker cannon into a Land Raider.

Thanks a lot bud and I certainly remember standing to and breaking down camp for a good ruck.



Here's the tutorial I followed for the posters. Essentially, it's google images of propaganda posters for 40k, finding the ones you like. I think GW actually releases some of their own for this purpose as well. Then you put them in your office program of choice at a bunch of different sizes. Print them off and in the tutorial he uses the clearcoat spray that GW sells. I used a matte clear coat sold at my local hardware store, by rustoleum. You spray both sides of the pages kind of dusting them not soaking them but a good layer. It seeps into the regular paper and gives it a bit more substance. The pages might look a little bit frosty, but that's not a problem at this stage.

 

I either cut them out with a scalpel or a small pair of scissors and smeared PVA on the back. The clear coat stops the inks from bleeding in this stage and the frosted look will disappear when the PVA dries. Smear whatever PVA pops out of the corners onto the front of the poster. Finally it is just a matter of pinching the poster or tearing of small pieces to give it a bit of a weathered look. The last thing I need to go back and do and hit whatever white corners poke out with a spot of agrax shade to make the paper look old.

I will upload my templates for my posters into my gallery for people's use.
