Apocalypse Terrain: Gothic Cathedral Pt 5

Its been a few days since anythings happened to the Cathedral, but theres a bit to report today!

Its taken me AGES to get the final window panels cast and tidied up! But today that's was done, and the towers are now complete! I have to say, its starting to look quite magnificent!

Its size now dwarfs my Reaver Titan, Praetorian!

I've added some of the Pegasus gargoyles to the structure. I've yet to add any Imperial iconography yet, but it'll come later

I'm still to make any headway on the front door, but that's because I've been  toying with other ways to construct it. However, I've come back to my original idea of using the Shrine of the Aquila which I'll probably purchase next week.

So what now? I think its time to start painting! I'm leaving the rest of the flying buttresses off for the moment, as i think that will make painting the super-structure a bit easier. I'm just going to undercoat it and do the bulk of the dry brushing, then I'll add the buttresses. I hope to get this done by the end of the week!

  1. It's looking awesome - I hope you have a BIG brush to paint all that!

  2. You are going to need a full on paint sprayer, the air brush would have a stroke.

    Outstanding work and keep it up, looks great!

  3. Looking good! I don't know if I'd say it dwarfs the reaver though...

  4. Looking good! I think the shrine will be a great model for the front door.

  5. It is looking immense! The Golems are a great touch, where did you get them from? I'm eagerly awaiting the following installments.

    PS: Someone call the authorities, there is a Reaver in the house!

  6. Awesome structure!

    Moreover, thanks for that pic with the titan next to it, it put titans in perspective for me in a way I hadnt processed before... that's 5 storeys tall...

    my building at work is 4 storeys.. a Reaver is bigger than the building I work in..


  7. My God, so awesome! I can't wait to see more!

  8. Cheers guys!

    The Gargoyles are out of the origional Pegasus building sets - theres tons of them!

    As for painting - well the effort its going to take scares me! Got a decent grey from Army Painter to spray it with, then a lighter shade will go over the top using the airbrush (providing it doesn't stroke-out!) Then its mass drybrushing! I've got a suitably big brush so it shouldn't be to much of a problem. I've just got to be careful not to rush that part, or i'll butcher the whole paint scheme!

    Just have to wait for Mrs GunGrave to coome home so she can help me move it into the garage for spraying!

  9. I am really enjoying seeing this project come together, it will be an absolutely stunning terrain centrepiece!

  10. Very cool. Really coming together!
