Welcome to Ferrograd


Galuntt's moon circles a gas giant with the grand title of Tedifer sigma 34-3 which circles the star Tedifer sigma which is a very boring star and lies on the warproute between the back end of nowhere and some where very dull. Neither of those places claim responsibility for Galuntt's moon as it's too much like hard work. Few people stop there if they can help it. Galuntt's moon is the only habitable planetoid in the system and it used to be a busy hub of mining and commerce but for reasons far too boring to discuss, it isn't anymore. The main city on Galuntt's moon is named Ferrograd because most of the buildings are constructed from Iron, the most abundant local material, most of which is in a sad state of repair due to the high moisture content of the atmosphere. The one notable aspect of the Ferrograd is that it seems to be a favoured hiding place for ne'erdowells and ruffians from nearby 'civilised' imperial sectors. A fact that the local Arbites and Inquisition are well aware of.......
 

I've been working on the extensions to Ferrograd this week and I've got to the point where I'm fairly happy with the amount of scenery. I've ordered a couple of MDF buildings that should be coming soon and that will give me a fairly dense board. As you can see from the above pic the 'corner' pieces fit pretty well. I just need to sort out doors between sections and do a bit more signage. Here are some more pics.



There will be more crossings on the sewage drain and I need to paint the tops of the middle section's walls, that should help to blend it in better. You should be able to see posters and graffiti on some of the buildings, there are some little treats hidden on the board for those playing on it to discover. The 'corners' are going to be themed as a power generator (top right), water recycling plant (bottom right), residential (bottom left) and landing area/port (top left). Obviously nothing is glued down so It's entirely modular and I still haven't used the Sarissa walkways. I want to get round to doing the inside of the bar and make that part of the gaming area but I want to get back to painting some figures!

  1. You just blew my mind. To actually think I get my own model on this table is just too good. You've done taht in what looks like no time and the quality is leagues above anything I could do even if spending a year on it.
    Man there will be some tricky angles and all but there are going to be some brilliant games on those tables.
