Thought that kind of theme has been done already. Though sometimes it's nice to repeat things :)

The current GB is underground stuff (february one/begin March). That could have fitted in perfectly.

like radiation from a destroyed nucklear power plant or acidic terrain with dying vegetation and pools of acid

Here's an Idea: Mass Production - Terrain that is easily reproduced or that can be made in batches. For the Challenge it should be something that can be made in a batch of at least 3.

I like all these ideas, please can we do batch, I have wanted to get into group build for ages as I have NO terrain what so ever. My batch build idea would probably be chaos altars or crypt ghoul caves

Zone Mortalis wasn't out at the time though I don't think.

For a future build what about a multi lvl space ship. You could have points where a boarding party can enter or for armor you could have a landing bay. I know in most of the books the space marine ship are huge just a thought

This would be cool, and I have another Idea, Fluff based terrain, Terrain that was writen in detail in any codex/rules book and made to look as close to the discription as able.
Dont try to paint 4 armies at once.... not a good idea, check some of my work out

Considering with everything MWG is going on, how about terrain linked to "dark potential"?

Or, more exactly what people think the terrain for dark potential will be, based on the concept art and what's going on.

I have this one planned for a little later in the year. Hopefully closer to or coinciding with the initial release. :wink:

That was what I was going to suggest :lol:
However, Matt said it would be in September. By then, our buzz won't be as high and not all of us will want to be part of the dark potential universe.

what if we did a group build on making interior terrain, like inside buildings or temple or ruins or even inside a tyranid hive, this would be very different and make people rethink how they make their terrain and if you made a lot of accessible buildings and stuff then in games people would have to rethink how they play cause tanks and other large units cant access them, wow what if we made destructable walls and stuff so you could blow holes in stuff to access things and get the jump on people that would be sick omg idea over load wwaaashfksdflsgafasdfgnh
