The title says it all, no mistery left. I'm talking about the 'Chapter Approved. First Book of the Astronomican' campaign set released in 1988.
|Short-haired Space Wolves. Never seen since then|
The campaign is set between Space Wolves and Orks, the Space Marines raiding on three power stations prior to the final assault on the Ork stronghold. They should destroy the power plants in order to shut down the Castle's defences. The campaign requires some buildings, so I came up with these. For the first scenario, the 'temple' (an oooold generator on which the primitive inhabitants built a temple) I made up this structure using foamboard:
It was fun, but I was terrified about plain walls. My intention was to provide some texture, to make it even the slightest resemblance to the illustration on the book. This is the slow step by step:
|Am I beauty?|
I used a hollow structure and sculpted on it, using DAS putty. I used green stuff for the face and some other details
So this is the boy!
|Oi! I'm kinda Buddhist Ork. You didn't expect that, did you?|
Once assembled, the temple looks like this:
Next day... Some more cheap scratchbuild scenery!
