Hi everyone, I just would like to share some pictures of our Dust battlefield. I've been playing DT since the beginning, loved the amazing miniatures but did not enjoyed the cardboard terrain that much. I've been playing wargames for 15+ years (I started with 40K like everybody) so I got a lot of experience making scratchbuilt terrain. Making terrain for Dust was really fun. All buildings are 3D versions of the buildings found in Operation Seelöwe. The rubble piles are considered Cross terrain and the walls are impassable terrain. I'm planning on making a couple more plus a bridge and river used in Victory Bridge. (With 3 or more buildings from Operation Cerberus) While I made all the scenery the minis are Dust premium because I just don't have the time to paint whole armies with all the projects I'm currently working on. ( I need to find a way to increase my lifespan so I can complete all my projects!)
Comments are more than welcome. Enjoy!
PS: Sorry for my pictures I'm no professionnal! And it's really dark in my basement.
I can't see anything in the pics. IS there any way you can post them larger?

By far the best scenery I have seen on here. Would love to play on the board.

Great board, very nice buildings.
Sweet, I've been thinking of doing the same but storage would be an issue.
Thanks for the feedback guys! Today I'm starting the basic layout for the Victory bridge. I'll make two 2x3 squares bridge sections so we may use them as either a long 2x6 squares bridge or 2 smaller bridges crossing the river. I'll try to post some pics once the foamcore and the balsa is starting to look like something...
Outstanding! The Luther debris looks great,
Major Mishap Hope this is of assitance, Eileen and my self buy plastic shoe containers type that go under the bed, approx 3ft x18" about14" deep,Buidings are designed to come apart, usually at each floor. Thanks to a loving wife, models over shoes. Merry X-mas.
Ok so I'm back with some pictures of my bridge project. It is not completed yet, still have to build the bridge pillars, then finish painting the water board and the bridge but you can have an idea of the finished project. I also decided to go all out with water features so I made a second water board so I may use both of them to create a coastline for use in amphibious assaults scenarios. I bought 3 LCM46 from Dust Models (very nice castings) but might add 1 or 2 more. I'll post more pictures soon.
@Major Mishap: I have 2 rooms dedicated to the purpose of gaming!
Comments are welcome!
Very nice, I mean Really NICE!!!. I thought I was lucky with just one room dedicated to gaming.
