Hi all, got the terrain bug at the moment (Damn you Onyx ;D )

so I have 2 board ideas I'm going to doing:

The first is a semi-indoor forgeworld level, so towering columns, lots of industrial pieces and huge titan hangar/maintenance bays.

The second is a last of us style/dropzone commander overgrown abandoned city.

I'm starting with the forgeworld table, and have completed the basic construction of the first of 4 giant titan hangars (this one uses 3 of my 10 kits I've bought)

This thing is huge, 18 inches across, 6 inches deep and 6 inches high. I will be adding a large central ramp for the vehicles, plugging the holes in the bases/walls and adding a few more details. These reach to my board "ceiling" that I'll be using :geek

any cool ideas people want to throw at me feel free, the more cool ideas the better :spin

Olly,

Love it mate, great idea for a board. I also would like to know where you go this gear from.

Cheers

thanks guys, I'm very happy with them so far :) Friday I will be heading in to some hobby shops to grab some more supplies/ make some other elements :geek

The kits are gundam chain bases (I managed to nab a set of 10 for $80)

I've semi-assembled the next 3 kits to form the first terrain piece (12 inches by 18 inches ;D )

apologies for the average photo quality.

I have 4 kits left, any suggestions on how I should assemble them? 2 sets back to back (a smaller version of above) or should I make a square of them?
