A Tau City (in true scale)
Getting to make alien worlds to play my games on is one of the most enjoyable things about gaming in the 40K universe I think. Most 40K city tables always look so small to me so I decided to make one that had full sized buildings on it. Alien architecture is always a challenge since it can be very hard to make it look completely different from human stuff. These buildings are a bit of a departure from what most people probably consider a Tau building should look like, but they are very playable. Super tall spires and large domes look great in artwork, but are horrible on an actual gaming table. If you don’t have anywhere to place your miniatures then you will have trouble playing on it. These buildings are what I think is a good balance between aesthetics and playability.
