Hi there i ran across this website when i was looking for scenery ideas for my warhammer 40k armies. Im 17 and very new to this and years ago when my uncle got me into this game we had the original set of rules. the 99 edition. and in that rule book, i saw there was a gun emplacement, there i started my first major project. For the past two weeks ive gone to my work area for 6 hours at a time to work on various scenery projects i have going on….on the emplacemnt though i would like some help and ideas to ways i can improve the texture and definantly painting ideas. ill upload 3 photos to show and any advice you can give me on materials will be fantastic. I know of course, has being new to all this, im not gonna be a pro but practice makes perfect so any help will be gladly appreciated.
