First off you will need these tools:

1) A pen or pencil

2) A black Marker

3) A ruler

4) A razor knife or scissors

5) A pile of cardboard (I used comic book protector sheets)

6) A hot glue gun and glue sticks

7) Black spray paint

8) Grey spray paint

9) All the stuff from Home Brew: Zone Mortalis Part 1

For every Alpha Zone Tile you will need to cut...

x1 12" x 12" base plate

x2 3" x 2" end wall pieces

x2 8" x 3" inside wall pieces

x2 10" x 3" outside wall pieces

x1 8" x 2" roof piece

x1 10" x 2" roof piece

Spray the base piece Black, if you leave some small gaps it will let the cardboard's natural brown show threw and make the tile look gritty. Then spray the other pieces Grey, Do two light layers as this will make it look as worn concrete or plas-steel.

I start by gluing one 3" x 2" Piece 2" from one corner edge. Then Glue a 8" x 3" straight back from the inside edge of the end piece, do a right angle turn and glue in the next 8" x 3" piece then glue in the other 3" x 2" end piece. Next glue in the first 10" x 3" piece and add the other 10" x 3" piece and let dry. Once its dry Glue on the roof!

For every Beta Zone Tile you will need to cut...

x1 12" x 12" base plate

x4 3" x 2" end wall pieces

x4 6" x 3" wall pieces

x3 4'' x 3'' wall pieces

x1 8'' x 3'' wall piece

x4 4'' x 2'' roof pieces

x1 8'' x 2'' roof piece

Spray the base piece Black, if you leave some small gaps it will let the cardboard's natural brown show threw and make the tile look gritty. Then spray the other pieces Grey, Do two light layers as this will make it look as worn concrete or plas-steel.

I start with the 3" x 2" end piece again 2'' from a corner, then add another on the the inside edge. Add a 6'' x 3'' at a left angle. Off of there take the 8'' x 3'' and glue it at a right angle. Take another right angle and add a 6'' x 3'' piece. Take a 3'' x 2'' piece and glue it down at a left angle from there. Add the last 3'' x 2'' piece as the other wall end. Glue a 4'' x 3'' at a right angle from this end piece, take yet another right angle and add a 6'' x 3''. Take a left angle and glue in a 4'' x 3'' piece, a left from there add the last 6'' x 3'' piece. Add the last 4'' x 3'' piece at a left angle to your starting point piece and let dry. Once its dry Glue on the roof!

For every Delta Zone Tile you will need to cut...

x1 12" x 12" base plate

x16 3'' x 2'' end wall pieces

x8 4'' x 3'' wall pieces

x4 4" x 2'' roof pieces

x4 2'' x 2'' roof pieces

Spray the base piece Black, if you leave some small gaps it will let the cardboard's natural brown show threw and make the tile look gritty. Then spray the other pieces Grey, Do two light layers as this will make it look as worn concrete or plas-steel.

Do this step in each corner...

Glue in one 3" x 2" end piece 2'' from the corner, then add a 4'' x 3'' at a right angle from the inside edge, add another 4'' x 3'' at a right angle to come back to the edge of the tile. Add a 3'' x 2'' on the edge and from there on a right angle add another 3'' x 2'' piece, add a 3'' x 2'' piece at a left angle to your starting point piece and let dry. Once its dry Glue on the roof!

For every Gamma Zone Tile you will need to cut...

x1 12" x 12" base plate

x10 3'' x 2'' end wall piece

x4 4'' x 3'' wall piece

x2 12'' x 3'' wall piece

x2 4" x 2'' roof piece

x2 2'' x 2'' roof piece

x1 12'' x 2'' roof piece

Spray the base piece Black, if you leave some small gaps it will let the cardboard's natural brown show threw and make the tile look gritty. Then spray the other pieces Grey, Do two light layers as this will make it look as worn concrete or plas-steel.

Do this step in two corners...

Glue in one 3" x 2" end piece 2'' from the corner, then add a 4'' x 3'' at a right angle from the inside edge, add another 4'' x 3'' at a right angle to come back to the edge of the tile. Add a 3'' x 2'' on the edge and from there on a right angle add another 3'' x 2'' piece, add a 3'' x 2'' piece at a left angle to your starting point piece and let dry. Once its dry Glue on the roof!

Two inches from the other end add a 3'' x 2'' end piece, then on a right angle add a 12'' x 3'' wall piece. On the other edge add a 3'' x 2'' end piece, take a right angle and add the other 12'' x 3'' wall piece. once dry add the roof!!

I hope that these are easy to follow with the pictures and directions. I have a few ideas for how to decorate the tiles and to make doors (I use Space Hulk doors.). But that's for another post!

So till next time, For the Allfather, for Russ, and for Fenris!!

I like what you've done here. The Forgeworld stuff is too pricy for anyone who isn't independently wealthy and only works for model $$$.

ReplyDeleteI was considering making something similar from black foamcore.

Thanks! Glad you like it!

ReplyDeleteBrilliant! I never even gave it a thought to make my own, I will defiantly have to have a go. You have inspired me sir!

ReplyDeleteI agree with Arianna, FW Zone is very pricey.

Thanks! Also good luck!
