Ok....new terrain project.

Dune, based upon the 1984 David Lynch film, plus additional source material...



Tempted to build a ten foot long animatronic sandworm, but first i'll start with something "simpler".

 Cheesy

First section of the Citadel...based upon a 450mm x 450mm base, its approx. 500 mm tall....open on two sides, the front will have some steps (28mm TAG for scale).



The "front door" is c400mm off the table top.

This first section is pretty robust with a MDF core, as it will allow me to bolt on other pieces as I go.

Yup, the Roleplaying game print run was tiny, before it got pulled....a real shame, but they go for a small fortune on fleabay.

No pressure then....  Laugh . I realise that I could pick something less well-known for a project, as everyone has their own idea of how you should "do Dune properly" but I like a challenge.

I once had plans to do the whole thing in 6mm. Then I could fit a ten feet sandworm without any issues Wink

It's not bad actually, even allowing for the interior that will be added - weight wise it's like two of the raised sections from my Salute 2012 Planet of the Apes game, which I managed to lug around...as its one piece, it might even be easier.

The rest of the citadel will be in much more manageable pieces, but this section needed to be robust as it will have other sections on top....yes it's is going to be tall.

Great start!! Looking forward to how this will go. Interestingly your the same generation of Dune appreciation as I am (with look of miniatures etc). The stumbling block for me has not only been suitable miniatures  Wink but also rules...what with shields etc. have you got an idea of a system your going to use?

Nice links!

I'll probably end up writing a set of rules, as I'll need something fast play.  As all of my rules are AR:SE (Akula's Rules:Skirmish Edition) these could end up as either "Sandy AR:SE" or "Spicey AR:SE"....  Laugh

Either way, will be free to download.

Neither sounds a comfortable option - either sand in your never regions or the results of a hot curry. Smiley
