Looking for some terrain ideas for future Group Builds. I have a few things written down... somewhere... but am finding myself at a loss of a good theme/material/idea/etc. So post away with your terrain ideas...
-Materials
-Ideas
-Themes
-Terrain you are planning to build
-Terrain you would like to see built
-That sort of thing.
Just toss some stuff out there to help get my brain juices flowing. If you like someone elses idea, speak up. It might just be what we do next month!

Thanks...

Don't know if it's a good idea but I never saw green stuff sculpted details on terrain yet. WIP pictures would require to see the green stuff unpainted.

propaganda?

Broad term, but, think walls covered in recruitment posters, waagh totem, commissar/preacher podium/pulpit, chaos shrine w/ human sacrifice chained to it, ethereal speaking platform...Anything that'd be seen as a motivator.

Just what popped into my mind at a whim.

A shrine of dedication to whatever god, hero, force fits the army theme. An altar, temple, throne, etc.

Also, I completely bailed on this months build :oops: I woke up this morning, went to my paint station for the first time in about a month, saw it sitting there and thought 'crap'...

Thanks for all the replies guys. I liked a few of the above ideas and will keep them for later use. Some seemed a bit broad but still viable options. I just have to think them through a bit more.

I'm going to leave this open and give it a new title. Feel free to leave ideas and/or requests for future GB projects. Think of this as an ongoing list.

Thanks again guys.

Here's something of an idea I had. What if Group Build participators had to submit a piece of terrain (home made, of course), and in addition, they had to write some special rules for it? Similar to how there's some special rules for certain pieces of terrain in the WHFB rulebook.
