Terrain is everything - Hail the Omnissiah new Print & Play buildings
I know Christmas has been and gone but there are still presents to be had and the 40kaddict thinks you've all been very good this year so please accept this gift as 2014 comes to a close...
Having introduced a number of new colour schemes for the Print & Play Terrain templates I thought I should add some more building shapes so you had a little more variety. This is based on the first beige tower colour scheme but there are 3 towers you can make from the one .pdf. There are double width towers in two and three storeys and you can choose the rooftop, and even use the 40k Standard Manifold Coupling, aka the Modular Plug Socket.
Potentially you could even stack these ad infinitum or even attach them to the modular sockets on the existing Print & Play terrain templates for some crazy structures. Indeed this adds a huge amount of variety to your buildings, which would suit the 'new' Cities of Death rules, definitely a quick way to populate your CoD! Mostly they add line of sight blocking terrain but with a much smaller footprint than the existing templates. And lets not forget you can always tear them apart to make ruins!
These would ideally be suited for the foamboard that has the black foam core as that black foam would make these easily playable from the off, without looking too much like a quickly knocked up bit of terrain.
To access the full STC please point your Cogitators here, be fair warned it is 4MB in size [I make no apologies for this, I could probably render it as a .jpg or spend hours trying to reduce the file size, I tweaked it a little bit and got it down so hopefully it's less of an issue now.]:
Meanwhile all the other Print & Play and standard terrain templates are available here:

Really been enjoying these, man - excellent work! Makes me want to print 'em tiny and get back into Epic. :)ReplyDelete
Good idea, although Hawk Wargames do a load of free buildings to download and print for Dropzone Commander that'll do the job perfectly and are much more detailed for Epic: http://www.hawkwargames.com/pages/downloadsDelete
Could be good for stealers to hide out in Dave.ReplyDelete
Now that would be handy, especially for Manufactorum Genestealer formations. I'm definitely not engineering an advantage here ;)Delete
Too awesome Dave! Thanks so much for these!ReplyDelete
Always welcome Greg.Delete
Do you have Ruin versions available for each whole building?ReplyDelete
Unfortunately not, I suppose it could be done but I always thought it would be better to create a whole building and then allow folk to distress it how they feel - to strip it back to a ruin should they wish. It's better for the end user to take away than to create a ruin that can only be a ruin.Delete
Saying that I made these ruins untextured: http://40kaddict.blogspot.co.uk/2011/02/terrain-is-everything-40k-ruins.html
But again, this was a whole building that I chose to be a ruin. There's some advice there on how you might distress a Print & Play template to make it ruined. Splodges of black paint will give it that worn look. Additionally there are plenty of 40k propaganda posters on the net you can print and add to the templates to make them more interesting and unique.
I will however think about adding some more battle damage to some, it's worth a shot at least.
