How to Make a WarHammer 40k Rusted Steel Shed and Space Marine Bunker

How to Make a WarHammer 40k Rusted Steel Shed

 Hello, This past week I decided to groom my terrain collection with an authentic rusted corrugated steel shed. As you all know I love making warhammer terrain. Especially warhammer 40k terrain. I can make one in less than 90 minutes so let?s get to it.

Here?s a list of the materials we?ll be using:

? A block of polystyrene (insulation foam) or regular Styrofoam
? 18 popsicle sticks
? 2 strips of cardboard 3 inches high and 12 inches long
(the amount of cardboard given to you in a pizza box would be more than plenty)
? Utility knife and scissors
? Paint brush
? Black paint
? Grey paint
? Brown paint
? Rust colored paint (or just a red and brown mixed could work too)
? Silver paint
? Green paint (something that resembles moss color)

I'd loved to see things look blown up and partially wrecked and destroyed, so if you?ve looked at the shed and said ?man this looks really beat up? you?ll know it was made by Miniwargamer Dave. Kay, nuff talk and more building then wrecking I say. Let?s get to it.

Step 1 Prepare and cut the cardboard.

Cardboards are usually flat so you?ll have to peel one layer of the flat sides off in order to expose the corrugated look of the inside. You?ll see the corrugated part once you start peeling. Use a sanding block or sandpaper to sand off any excess bits in the grooves. You can size the cardboards strips however you choose.

Step 2 Glue Styrofoam to cardboard

Cut 4 blocks of Styrofoam equal to the height of your cardboard strips and glue them together.

Step 3 Attach wooden rafters
What you are going to do is to glue down the popsicle sticks to the Styrofoam.

You?ll have to glue 4 sticks underneath the 5 horizontal ones. Those I had to break at both ends then glue together and onto the Styrofoam blocks. Next is glue 10 sticks horizontally-5 on each side.

Step 4 prime the walls/roof with black

Next step is you?ll have to prime your walls black. Cut and shape roof parts as beside the shed. Depending on the glue you?ve used the popsicle stick roof will be sturdy enough to drybrush a few accent colors. Use 2 shades of brown and a lighter green to resemble moss. Next paint the Styrofoam grey to resemble concrete.

Step 5 Paint on the rust ( the best part by the way)

Paint the walls a dark red for the first layer of painting. Don?t worry about making it perfect because you?ll be adding many layers. Next drybrush a dark brown. Finally drybrush a silver grey to certain parts only saving a lot of the ?rust? exposed. In the end you should end up with 2/3 rust 1/3 metallic color showing through.

Repeat the same for the roof . Then glue on the roof pieces. Let it sit to dry for a good 20-30 minutes.

How to Make a Warhammer 40K Space Marine Bunker

An essential of most common terrain pieces. Anybody who has a Space Marine army must have a bunker of some kind. It would be ridiculous not to have one. Besides, Its not difficult to create one.

Materials List
-22*x28* foam board
-utility knife
-fine grit sandpaper
-PVA glue (white glue)
-thin polystyrene (styrofoam)
-codex gray
-skull white
-chaos black
-textured paint (gray)

Step 1 Outlining and cutting

There is a plenty of sizes that could be used when making a space marine bunker. For this reason I won't give exact dimensions. It will be adequate to say that sides and roof top will be used. So start by outlining and cutting down 4 sides. Be sure to make the windows the same height as their bolt guns. The height of the walls should be close to double the height of a space marine. Assemble 2 walls longer than the others walls so it will look like a rectangular shape. Repeat this process again and pair the walls.

Step 2 Create wall with door

When creating a wall with a door, set up only one of the walls with a door. The inner wall will then become a good background for the door designs.

Step 3 Glue sides together

Attach all 8 sides together. Remember each wall is actually paired with 2 parts combined. This gives the bunker more permanence and the windows are deep set into the building.

Step 4 make roof

Create a roof out of thin polystyrene (styrofoam). Arch the edges with fine grit sandpaper. Try also to chip out some chunks to be like a beaten and battered bunker. It gives more interesting look. Keep the roof unfastened so you can put space marines inside. You may have thought this was an obvious suggestion, but you?d be surprised at the things that disregarded.

Step 5 Prime then paint

Paint the bunker in chaos black or acrylic black paint mixed with fine sand to produce a textured look. This appear like concrete and gives more design when dry brushing. Later, paint the bunker with codex gray. Once dry, dry brush with skull white and wait till it will dry.
