40K Defense Wall

Adepticon has put out the call for terrain kits to meet the needs of 40K’s 5th edition.  Build an easily repeated, durable, inexpensive terrain piece which can block line of sight to a Rhino.   No small task.  If you have any ideas, be sure to leave a comment.

The most obvious terrain item to block LOS is a wall.  Direct, and to the point, but could easily look ugly or out of place on the table.  The Defense Wall is a hybrid of bunker and wall.  Four cast panels provide the majority of the detail – wall on the bottom with gun ports on top for a bunker feel.  Doors (Hirst Arts) on the ends can either be left exposed, or hidden behind a second wall piece.

The wall panels are cast in plaster.  1.5 inches of pink foam fill the center of the piece.  Foam core is used to clean up the center and finally, a bit of  “granny grate” tops off the walk space.

    What’s the potential in getting a couple of these unassembled?
