"Destruction cometh: and they shall seek victory, and there shall be none."
It has been a year since the futile defense of slipped from the defenders grasp. The invasion, while checked, was not halted.
And now the digestion of the planet has commenced in ernest.

Okay, so Games Day Toronto 2008 is in less than 3 weeks, and we thought: "Hey, why not make a table to show off the awesome talents and creative genius of those here on Warpshadow?" Only not really. As Mr_Pink's other terrain thread shows, ideas have been percolating almost a year. As have certain basic ground work. But a final theme was still outstanding.
Then someone sneezed. And a bacteriophage, a viral organism that destroys bacteria, was born. Only the bacteria to be destroyed was to be planet sized.






Many hands were recruited:

were secured to slave in the dark mines.

caught with his hand in the ... cookie jar?

And the phage spread:






Okay, so the table(s), 4 2x4 sections are in Thanatos' garage drying. Not bad integration for part of one week-end...

Now get back to sculpting Mr_Pink!

The defenders thought they had one final chance to stay the spread of the digestion process long enough to finish evacuating. All they had to do was place a melta-bomb at the base of the atmosphere processors spewing out the toxic phage, which was protected by massive Tyranid fortifications and crawling with fanged and armored death. Simple, really.

Guys this looks brilliant! Good work to all of you.

I can't help but notice the name of the planet: Casavant Prime. Is this project named after Phage, the Shadow Admin? Or is the primogenator himself involved too? :wink:

I don't know what to say. I think the smiley says most of it.

What are you going to be using for water? That clear hobby stuff? Because if you are I thought you might paint up some strands of phage/creep and mix it in with the water mix to look like the creep spreading into the river is being washed to other locations. Maybe even a submerged spore mine or two.

It was Hydra's invention, and it is really quite complicated to accomplish:

PVA (with) Glue
+
Water
+
Kleenex/Facial Tissues/Tissue Paper
=
Phage

Hydra says that you should seperate every two-ply piece of tissue into it's two distinct pieces before dipping in the glue, but I found they kept rippind on me. The Phage Queen used whole pieces of tissue, and she accomplished some great things.

What's more, when I went to inspect the now-dry table last night, I found that where she had placed the thinnest strands of phage, stretched tight across two pieces of scenery, they were now rock hard with a toughness/consistency nearing that of rawhide.
I was _AMAZED_.

The perfect way to Niddify terrain and do it fast!

Thanks to everyone for their excitment with this project. It will definitely help to keep us all motivated as we work towards the June 21 ( :shock: ) deadline. Also, since Accommodator operates on the assumption that compliments are understood and voicing them is a waste for time, I am happy for any flowers anyone is sending our way :D

I went and added some more nid details to the board last night, but, in my tired state when I had finished, I forgot to photograph them. I have asked Thanatos if he can take some shots for me, but I don't know if he has yet. Suffice to say that the spores are more goopy now, and the canal has got some nid gunk growing in it...Not as much as I would have liked, but it's a start.

It also reminded me that one of my favourite parts of this project so far is giving other people the opportunity to be creative. Last night I was getting Thanatos to help me with the spore and river gunk sculpting, and he did a great job. Similarly, my friend The Phage Queen has no experience with the hobby, but she rocked the Phage, and she produced a passable Fortification (Accommodator just saw that it was done and similar to mine; my anal/exacting eyes detected all the flaws, so she's not exactly a natural...yet :wink: ). By the end of this, we might even inspired Accommodator to put down the tank brush {fingers crossed}.


AH! JacktheRipper! Why didn't you give us that awesome idea before!!!
We're using resin, and we haven't even begun to pour it yet, so I would love to incorporate some bits into the resin/the canal bed to make it look more Niddy.


So, I'll put it to you and the forum members: Give us some ideas of flock/confetti/small bits that don't require painting that we can easily incorporate into the clear resin to give it a creepy, infested feel. Something that looks buggy/sea creature-y, and, hopefully, something simple and readily available.

Any ideas?
Any of you?
How about you in the back? Yes, the lurker with the perfect idea for this project. Speak up!
