40k Weekend and Tunnels are done!

This weekend is shaping up to be quite a heavy 40k weekend.

Tonight kicks it off with my second Deathwatch RPG session. Last time I played (two weeks ago) my Iron Hands Devastator Marine blew the hell out of 6 Orks and a crazed combat servitor with his heavy bolter. It was pretty much all combat with just a hint of exploration. This week hopefully the story will move along. We have two people back who were absent last session. Should be fun. I'll try and put up a battle report for it tomorrow or next week.

Last night I put the finishing touches on the tunnel terrain and laid it all out in a 4' by 4' square on my table. I wanted to see how much space it took up and to see if a Zone Mortalis game could be played on it easily.

As you can see it really fills up a 4' by 4' table! I could probably use this on a 6' by 4' table with no problem. I don't have a proper covering yet for the table. I will be buying some raw sienna colored construction paper today which I am going to use as the table covering under the tunnel terrain. It should work out pretty well.

Here is the 4' by 4' sample layout I put together last night:

Here is a picture of the two elevators:

Here is a hatch that would be on the surface board. When you open the hatch you can go down a ladder into the underground:

Here is one of the finished doors:

This is the lab room. Some sort of experiment has gone wrong and blood has been splattered all over the place:

And here are some more pics:

Stay tuned for pictures from the battles this weekend (alonog with battle reports).

Until next time...


  1. Looks pretty darned spiffy! I think on a 4x6 it wouldn't look so good personally. I like the cluttered and twisty-corridors look. Makes for more tactical and figure placement options.

    Only hope I can make my own terrain as interesting!

  2. Thanks! I am pretty happy with it. I might make more pieces in the future and add more specific things like special rooms and more doors.
