Warhammer 40K Citadel

Postby Wulfmar » Mon Sep 23, 2013 8:39 pm

Hello guys,

Well, I've been busy learning how to design and machine a citadel for the upcoming apocalypse match. The parts I am designing and constructing will make the citadel gatehouse along with a section of the walls. I liked the idea of having something similar to the artwork on the Horus Rising novel.

I've finished the programming and design and have started the laser cutting. I'll upload images as I take them and as the construction continues.

This image shows the Aegis Defense Line-styled barricades that will run along the top of the fortress walls

This image shows the laser cutter working on a pattern that makes up the decking for the top of the walls

This final image (for now) shows some of the sets I've been cutting out

I'll upload more photos later. I've chosen to laser cut a clear sheet of plastic to act as a force shield gate as well as a patterned brickwork facade for the fortress walls. I'm also trying hard to make an Imperial Aquila symbol for the towers... anyway, that's enough for tonight!

Another hint at what I've been up to - 100% hand drawn by me

I'll leave the whole thing as a surprise for Saturday
