So my week of warhammer has just started. it was a great day yesterday with a new terrain project that will bee a part of a table that i hope to finish this week. A winter table with some tau buildings an pine trees om magnets.
Here is a sort of tutorial of the tau command bunker/outpost.
|This is the basic stuff you need to build a Tau command bunker|
|I started of by cutting 4,5 cm stripes of foam core, using a special tool made for foam core. It has a plane side so that the cut will be straight instead of slightly angled|
|After that i did a series of vertical cuts with a carpet knife so the foam core could bend|
|I found a old home spy satellite disc that will serve for a perfect roof|
|And for my new love... the gluegun. Hot glue that gets hard in a minute or two. That makes it easy to attach complex shapes that would need hours of pressure if using PVA glue|
|Try to stretch it out and secure it with some dots of glue along the way before you make it stick to the dish.|
This makes it easy to do over if something go's wrong.
|This i how it looks after it's in place. And the total process so far have taken about 20 min|
|After this there are a similar process but with a layer of selitron. A plastic easy to work with material.|
|And this is how it looks after that.|
|To start of the detail part. i decided to make some things sticking out from the side of the bunker.|
|And this is after the first parts been put together|
|Some of Kristians kroots|
|This is the the thing after glued on the bunker and some tau symbol decoration|
|This is the fun part with selitron. Just some knife cuts och drag a pen in it and you have nice details.|
|Then a door made from selitron and plastic card|
|Then a bid plastic card tau symbol to cover the hole in the roof.|
|A pic to show the size of it.|
|And then a foam core base|
|a pis from different angle|
|A problem with selitron is that if you build something with it and use a base coat spray the hole thing will melt to a pile of crap. So before i will ship it of to Kristian for painting i will put on a layer of seal to make it hard and sparyible.|
|some sand mixed with glue and brown paint to make structure to the base. and in this pic a buildup to make the the snow look like the wind has taken it to som corners.|
|And another angle. From the first to the last steep it was about 3 hours so its a kind if fast build.|
Now its just some drying time and then of for it to be painted.
