Surprised Shocked Sweet Jeebus' unmentionables!
Johan, that... that's just too good looking....
That eagle came out very nicely.

Is that the sum total of what's painted, or have you progressed any farther already?

If I'm seeing this correctly, the opening on a corridor section would be 50mm across, if there were those protruding walls there? Floor is 6mm thick, like the walls? (If that's right, they'd link up nicely to my corridors, once finished. That would be quite the layout.... Next time I come over, I'll try and take along what's finished, so we can see how it looks?)

Bye, Erik

But an Imperial Eagle? What were you thinking! Smile

(Quoted from the Lead Adventure Forum)

Sadly thats about the only way to get the local "GW or nothing" gamers to say anything about it, and I thought what the heck, why not, good practice. ANd a reason to demo it using Killteam someday.

A gamer on another forum mentioned it had to be very heavy, all of that wood. I said it's propably the same or less then the same kit in resin or plaster......but I like to be sure so did some weighing, and suprised myself.



1 = 120 grams
2 = 140 grams
3 = 110 grams
4 = 165 grams

a 20x20 plate like the one with the Imperial Eagle weighs 200 grams, a 20cm long corridor 225 grams and the stairway 280 grams. The heaviest piece sofar is one of the big 30cm wide 20mm tall wall pieces for the U boat bunker, these tip the scales at 540 grams each. Considering the amount of space one can cover with this, plus the fact I have already designed a mode of transport for the blocks, had me pleasantly suprised.

I will add some more pics in the coming weeks, working on some more Bunker filler at the moment.

Johan
