Laser Cut Terrain


Shipping Containers

I really needed some shipping containers, more cover for models to cower behind, or use as cover as they heroically charge into combat. Anyway, I decided to make my own. The first being a very very plain box with lines etched into the sides. But there are plans for more interesting shapes. The Octo Container is the first interesting shape. I have finally started doing something other than a 90° angle. The next design is something more ambitous and the one after that, well, there is much more to come in 2019…

Final Tower Design

This is my final design for the Industrial Processing Tower (the Pringle Tower). To reduce cutting time, the levels have been redesigned with the treadplate replaced with a panel effect. The ladders have been changed a little and some new barriers added. Although it is now ready for a game of Kill Team, it could do with some rust and dirt adding to it.

Statue Base

I decided some of my town setups needed some statues to add a bit of character, so I created a simple mdf plinth. This design has actually been made for a Salute freebie model but I have tested it out on this random geezer on a horse. I have a bunch of Salute giveaway models from over the years and plan to make plinths to fit a variety if model sizes.

Office Block

The Mark II version of the Office Block has a different stair entrance. For this model I also added the corner stonework which I painted a good contrasting colour. The roof and interior floors are just paper images found on DIY websites and printed, cheating I know, but it works for me! There is a Mark III with double doors at the front, but I don’t have one cut yet.

Office Block Prototype

The original office block I designed has a different stair configuration that did not look as good as I had hoped when I actually came to build it. But it was still more than usable, so it has been inked to within an inch of its life. The flash has bleached out the pavement a bit, but I think I will go back and draw in the lines.

MDF Building Marathon

Most of the MDF tower models I have built over the last few months have been for Jim to use on his Products For Wargamers stand at games shoes. I am now getting around to building some for myself. This time around, I thought I would paint components before I stick anything together. There is plenty to do, I plan to paint and then build three standard height Industrial Processing Towers (with Pringles tubes) and one double height tower. All the towers will link together with ground level sections all designed to make one large industrial setup for use in 40K, Rogue Stars and Kill Team. I just need to see how long it will all take.
