Well today I finished the scenery for my first completed Forge World Realm of Battle Cityscape Generatorum Sectors. Its been a long time coming, I didn’t think making scenery could be so time consuming. It hasn’t helped that while I’ve been doing the crane I’ve also been doing simultaneously the Cathedral that will go on the first Shattered Plaza board section too. I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking but I’m sure you’ll agree that this crane will be a real centre piece of the table. Its massive! Its surprisingly stable too, as a measure to assist with it not being knocked over by clumsy gamers (read : me) I’ve actually magnetised the chain on the winch so if it were to be bumped the chain will just fall away rather than bring the whole crane down.
So lets take a look at them. There are two terrain pieces on this board, the crane, but also the Generatorum, I like to think of it as the generator or power source for the crane itself. I imagine that a raiding army has sabotaged its power source rather than topple the crane so that if need be it could be put to use in the future. Hence why the crane is in tact…
So there you go. The first board completed… seven to go. The next board you’ll see by the end of the week most likely will be the Cathedral. Its now fully assembled and undercoated. Its a massive piece also making it awkward to handle, so painting it should be great fun….
The more I look at the crane and generator the more I like it, to be honest with you its still growing on me but its a very distinctive piece that I’m sure over time my appreciation of it will grow.
So thats it for today, look out for my next post which will be the completed Cathedral. It’s going to be a real eye opener.
