After foraging for terrain parts for a good while, I finally found motivation to actually start some proper building of Vogen city. I stumbled across a youtube video from Zorpazorp, which solved one of the biggest issues with a gaming board – how to combine the great looks of a static gaming board with modularity and flexibility. I don’t want a mat and buildings without bases, I want buildings to actually look like they are a part of the board, but I also do not want to play the same setup every time. Zorpazorp’s idea of sawing an imperial sector board into 8×8″ squares is brilliant.
As such, I jumped on the idea and did the same, sawing up my imperial sector. Not a fantastic way to spend a bunch of hours, but rewarding when it was finished and I could try out some different layouts. The big aquila and saint pieces don’t fit in any variation of 8″, so those are not cut yet. I am planning to use them to build some big risers.
The buildings are made up of mainly Rampart terrain, GW imperial sector and Necromunda terrain, with some mantic terrain and various bits. I am currently just getting the main part of the buildings up, saving detailing work for the next step.
Current WIP from bottom left to top right:
Loading platform (missing crane)
Administratum / hab
Imperial Senate house
My four year old has also taken an interest in Vogen. It is likely that the first action the city will see will include Lego vehicles roaming through the streets 😀
Really looking forwards to getting this stuff ready and painted. It will be a long while, but I am sure it’s going to be worth it. A nice side effect might be some proper grimdark backgrounds for miniature photoshoots.
