Mission Complete. Warhammer 40k Cities of Death

FOR THE EMPEROR!!!! I finally finished my Warhammer 40k Cities of Death project. There is a total of 8 buildings, all with base, and 2 bridges. Was really looking forward to take photo for Warhammer 40k Scenery, Cities of Death. Managed to grab the 40k scenery with a reasonable camera shot, and enhanced the background with some digital imaging.

Anyone for a game? Charge!!!!

Cities of Death Progress

Still in the Cities fever. Currently only left one and a half buildings left and 2 bridges to paint. My target is to get all cities done by Sept end…. stay tuned…

Washing 40k Cities of Death

Still in the Cities of Death fever, managed to complete 1 city, 3 more to go. Will showcase them once its completed. Once my buildings are done, I will build a base for it as well.

Anyway, how I paint my cities is, based coat black,  paint it with Fortress Grey, wash it down with Citadel Washes Badab Black. When the wash is dried it looks good, it like I describe in my earlier post. But the problem is, I am washing a building, wow, a building will use up about 1.5 bottle of wash. In term of money, wow, that expensive to paint a building. I decided to experiment alternatives.

And… wow.. I found. I mixed Citadel Chaos black paint with a hobby thinner, probably a mix of 95% thinnner with 5% paint part. Use this to wash the building. And when its dried, it has the same effect as using Citadel Washes and it does not dry with a dark ring. And a bottle of thinner cost only 6 dollar and its a big bottle.

Back to the cities…

Warhammer 40k Cities of Death

Been painting my cadians when decided to take a break. Suddenly I got into the mood of cities and ruins for Warhammer 40k Scenery gaming. I just realized my 40k Cities of Death has been sitting around for years.  When it first launched few years back, my plan was to build a city with about 8-10 buildings. With a 6×4 feet board, it would be fun to have a game of 40k Cities of death. The project got KIV as usual, managed to build about 3-4 cities at that time. Below are some of the picts…

The mood for Cities suddenly got back, then I decided I might as well one shot try to finish all my cities. Definitely looking forward to display the Warhammer 40k Scenery as a whole city scape when completed. Anyway, took a whole weekend to manage to assemble and build 4 cities and base coated them. Now to paint them…
