I can has terrain?

Ok, work was a little slow today.  I brought my  BHC corridor sections in to put them together since I have a game of Infinity coming up, and would like to use my BHC set for it.

These things take a little while to put together, especially when you find a broken piece and have to put it back together  :(

Last of the 12 sections:

And a box of 12 sections just about ready to play on:

More to come!

Terrain Ho: addendum

So, I've been working on my Bug Hunt Corridors, hereafter referred to as BHC for the last couple of weeks in my spare time.

I have been able to get almost everything base coated and it is looking pretty good.  Last thing on the plate are some endcaps for dead end corridors.

I am still trying to figure out how I want to do weathering. I picked up some black craft paint to try a very diluted wash in for the wall detail, which I'll try on a test piece.  IF it works out decently it will save a ton of time, instead of doing a gloss coat and enamel wash over everything.

Next steps will be assembly of most of the set, washing for detail, painting in fine detail, and final assembly and exterior wall painting.

No pics this time :(

Terrain HO!

An update, not too long removed from the last!

So, I got in my Bug Hunt Corridor terrain from their kickstarter a year and a half ago.  It's been a long wait, but the terrain is awesome.  It is basically a replication of the corridors and rooms from the movie Aliens.

The set is a modular setup that allows you to move sections and rooms around to make your experience different every time you play on it.

Here's an example posted on the Kickstarter page:

I have enough to make a setup similar to this. I have a few extra rooms and options.

I am planning to use my set for multiple systems. Mainly Infinity, but also with Secrets of the Third Reich 1949, Gruntz 28mm, and possibly with 15mm Gruntz.

Inspired by a thread on Data-Sphere, I set out to paint my corridor set in a fashion reminiscent of a used military surplus base, or underground bunker complex, or even a gritty future starship plan.

Exterior walls will be in a camo green, interior walls and decking will be in a light corrosion resistan grey, and the walls and accents are going to be in an industrial green from Liquitex Professional Sprays called Viridian Hue #7.

Here's a straight section with the base colors on it

Same Section with some 28mm models on it

So far I have 12 straight sections started.  Lots of work to go.
