Forge World Realm of Battle Cityscape Concourse Sector – Finshed

Firstly, wherever you are, Happy 2013.  It’s my fervent wish that your year is filled with tones of plastic crack and many triumphant  victories where you grind your enemies into the tabletop rendering them to all but a memory.

Ok, on to the post.

Today I finished off the forth board of the Forge World Realm of Battle Cityscape, the Concourse Sector.  It’s a pretty straight forward paint scheme with the statue plinth being the focal point in white, clear marble.  I have to admit, that is the one area of this section that I am very happy with.  As you know, I’ve got two of these board sections and I plan to have them flanking the Shattered Plaza section with two Honoured Imperium Space Marine Statues on the top of each plinth.  To add a bit of variety to the appearance of the Concourse Sectors, I’ve made one of the Space Marine Statues toppled.  I’ll get into how I did it, but for now, lets look at some completed pictures of the board sections.

Heres are reverse angle of the toppled statue.  As I mentioned I’ll go into more detail about how I did it later in this post.

Ok, onto the toppled statue.  I’ll let the pics do most of the talking…

Forge World Realm of Battle Cityscape Concourse Sector Honored Imperium Statue 4 via www.thepaintingbunker.comSo that it would look as “integrated” as  possible on the sector I made a base out of plasti card and epoxy putty so it would fit snugly and “touch” the sector heavily.  I also filled in the legs and made it look like they’d been smashed/shattered.

Forge World Realm of Battle Cityscape Concourse Sector Honored Imperium Statue 6 via www.thepaintingbunker.comTo try and help the base of the toppled statue appear as consistent looking with the rest of the sector I wanted the rubble on the base to look as close to the rubble on the sector as I could get it.  To achieve this I got a few different types of basing material together.  You can see in this picture kitty litter on the left, snake enclosure fill in the centre and a coarse sand from GW on the right.

Ok, thats me for today, thanks for dropping in.  I’ve made it to the half way point with the boards, having painted four of the eight that I’ve got.  I’m very pleased with how they are turning out and I’m enthusiastically anticipating making the scenery that will go on the tops of these boards.  Stay tuned for further posts…

Bye for now

    This is brilliant! I love how well you’ve managed to fit the broken off part of the statue with the board. Adding the weight to the unbroken statues seems like a really good idea too. The statue fits those plinths nicely. The boards are looking fantastic!
