Terrain - 40k - Diorama - The Design
The piece below from GW inspired me to start on this entire process.
So the terrain piece is of an Ork Deffkopta crashed into tank traps after being shot down and or engine trouble with some craters from ordinance and some tree stumps for added effect as a homage to the original GW piece. I sketched these out on my hardboard base to see the layout and once happy I started to collect the pieces together.
I cut the rotors of the Deffkopta so they would look 'shot down', then cut out my tank traps from foam-board and for the lip of the crater I used some off-cuts from the foam-board tank trap pieces. I then lay the pieces out, including a twig from my garden, on the base to get an idea of what the finished result would look like.
Once I was happy with the layout I proceeded to finalize the base.
See stage 2 next.
