I have a new-ish camera that I've been meaning to play with, so I decided to take some pictures of my Deathwatch Kill-Team (codename: Blackthorn!). The camera has no manual focus, only auto-focus, so I wasn't able to get any clear pics of individual figures (-since the camera, in its wisdom, usually chooses to focus on some random background element rather than what I'm trying to photograph). So, this batch of pics will be group shots demonstrating a variety of my group's terrain collection.




Two of the 'standard' 40K terrain types: a battlefield (above), and a field-field (below).




I made a bunch of Chaos Waste terrain for a Chaos Warband skirmish game that appeared in White Dwarf several years ago; a friend and I played exactly one game before our interests were diverted, and the terrain was 'mothballed'. I've been looking for an excuse to trot it out again.




Even though I don't like the heavy emphasis on Chaos in the Jericho Reach setting (-my DW campaign is set in Dark Heresy's Calixis Sector, partly for that reason), I think a special mission where the Kill-Team must pursue an adversary to a world in the Screaming Vortex would make for a fun change of pace.






These swamps were made by painting bare MDF boards with a mottled, rippling pattern of black and blue-green, then applying several coats of gloss varnish. The 'islands' are standard hills and the bases of the GW plastic tree sets, dropped on top of the 'water'.

I've got a buttload of Necromunda terrain (ah, Necromunda, how I miss thee...), but most of it is in dire need of repair, so rather than risk it falling apart on me, I'll use this building/refinery/pump station-thingy made from GW's Manufactorium terrain kit to represent my industrial terrain.




Here's a desert settlement. The buildings are cardboard packaging inserts, mounted on pink insulation foam.






One of my players has a collection of Space Hulk tiles, which occasionally get pressed into service.




Here's a run-in with some rad-spiders (see the SPACE HULK VERMIN link in my signature below), made from figs from the WHFB Goblin Spider Rider set.




Sometimes, instead of 3-d terrain, I'll use a battlemat drawn with Sharpies on a length of wrapping paper. Here is one representing an area of compacted wreckage inside a space hulk. The 'random encounter' beastie is an Ebon Geist (from the Adversaries section of the Rogue Trader rulebook), custom-made from a combination of Ungor and Kroot bits plus some plasticard elements.




I thought it might come in handy to have some non-DW Space Marines to put in an appearance on the occasional mission. My first instinct was to paint 'generic' SMs as Ultramarines, but then it occured to me that, in the Calixis Sector, the Chapter the Kill-Team would be most likely to encounter would be the Storm Wardens.




My next batch of pictures will focus on adversaries...
