OK! We get back to the modular 40k fortifications. When we last left this project, I was waiting for all the glue to set up on the various elements. In this image, you can see the door that I had ready to go...
A platform was created to guard the entrance...
Now the gate and the pillbox are all set.
I put foam core on the tops of all the elements to give them just a bit of extra height.
I added some corner pieces, as these will be platforms for optional weapons such as heavy bolters, etc. I believe that when you purchase bastions with your points, you can choose from a few weapons.
For more story driven games, I was going to make some communications arrays that might go in those corners or even teleport homers.
I added a few more elements to the walls. I wanted these to be metal struts, to which I will be adding those rivets...
Speaking of rivets, here is the part that I hate the most... punching out the rivets! It takes forever, or at least it feels that way. Very tedious, but they are very important for the desired effect.
This is a sheet of relatively thin plasticard. The hole punch is from an archive/scrapbooking store.
I tried to gather all the little rivets into one container, and got a new, sharp blade for my exacto knife, which I would use to place the rivets.
Here's some of those rivets in place! Stay tuned for the final construction episode!
