Terrain - 40K Outpost (Confessions of a 40K Addict template)

Hello again!

I must confess something readers. I have no terrain. None. Zip. It's shameful, I know. I have plenty of materials stockpiled, but have never gotten around to building anything. Well I've now decided it's time to get cracking. I intend to build various pieces over the next couple of months or so, but I'm starting with something a little different.

I have downloaded and printed one of the excellent templates from Confessions of a 40k Addict, a fantastic blog run by Dave Weston. It has everything including tutorials, battle reports, free terrain templates and game markers and some excellent fluff as well. You should definitely head over there and follow the blog if you love 40K. Also check out Dave's Tyranids in particular. I had the pleasure of losing to these stunningly painted beasties at Blogwars 9 last year.

There is also a competition running on the blog at the moment whereby if you build some of Dave's terrain and send him photos of it in action you have a chance at winning a Knight Warden kit! Amazing competition and definitely worth a go.

So I have decided to build Dave's 40K outpost design. As such I will not be posting a tutorial on this one as that would be using Dave's hard work to further this blog (more than I already am) so what I will do is have a 'before' and 'after' post with a quick photo so show the piece. In future any terrain bits I create from my own design will have a tutorial attached. If you want to know how to build this outpost head over to Confessions of a 40K Addict's STC page here.


  1. Hey, I'd be fine if you do any future templates to do a tutorial, they may be my templates but it;s your effort and if it highlights any inconstencies in the template or who you might have 'remixed' it it's worth recording :)

    1. Thanks Dave, I appreciate that. Now that the pressure of painting for Double Trouble is gone, there's at least a couple of your designs I want to have a crack at to add to my meagre terrain collection so I may just take you up on that and do a run through :)
