Hello all

I am making an imperial urban display board for my true kin. I have met 3 snags as of now.

1st is a medium sized statue I can use for the center. (Going to cut in half having part of it broken next to legs)

2nd is what to use as rubble for the interior of some of the buildings.

The last is my favorite. Civilian models I can use as prisoners/slaves. I already have made a space marine and a couple guard models for this but want ordinary people to be in the middle of my board.

Hey Koshi. I am looking forward to seeing how this progresses.

1. Maybe the avatar model from the dark elf cauldron kit?
2. I have used cut up pieces of sprue for rubble and these work great when combined with gravel and sand for the bases of buildings. Also some slate will work, and http://www.wargamestore.com/gale-force-nine-concrete-rubble-mix.html do a concrete rubble basing kit that has stone/concrete slabs that is great for buildings.
3. Mantic games have released a new game called mars attacks, that have civilian models and booster packs that you could use as your civvies. Additionally games like zombicide ect tend to have civvie models too.

Hope some of that helps

Thank you for the reply. Actually forgot mantic for miniatures will have to see what they have. The statue I'm looking for it to be imperial in origin so Mabie not the khain model

As far as the statue - what about bits from some of the Fantasy buildings? Specifically I have seen the statues from the Warhammer Chapel building, though I also recall the Garden of Morr having a pretty sweet statue as well.

Define medium-sized. Is the Honoured Imperium statue too large?

As Thor said, there's the one in the Garden of Morr kit. And if you're going to be cutting the statue anyway, you could try eBay or a bits site for the Cygor/Ghorgon hand that's holding a statue and cut away the hand.

Yes honored imperial one is too big for this. Thinking of like a statue that would be on a fountain. I'll look into the garden of more kit then.

here is some concept pictures.



and here is a close up of my present from Mr. pink doing his thing



so the center will be the statue broken. will add stares around the circle that go up. The prisoners will be lined up in line throught the center as the True Kin are all around them moking and prodding their well won slaves.

Do you think its to busy?

heck no it's not too busy - you should have seen one of the armies on parade I saw this year - it was a skyshield landing pad chock full of cultists. and when i say chock full I mean there was no space at all between the models! there must have been upwards of 100 models just on the skyshield itself.

here are some more pictures after a few days of working on it. I am still not sure about the middle piece. I am thinking of removing the Aquila and make it look like a webway portal.
