My brother (Rassilon) and I had the idea of this 'table' at Templecon 2010. While I admit we procrastinated for quite some time, it still took us a number of months to get the scenario rules down pat, not to mention building the model itself.
I put 'teable' in quotes be cause as it was, our inspiration was not to make one giant table full of nifty details to look at, but a concise rule set and a single cool piece of terrain that worked with the game and didn't neccessarily steal attention from a game being played.
As many of my old art teachers and professors would often say, "Less is more!"...so we made a single piece of terrain to sit in the middle of everything to look pretty...as well as cause a ton of havoc.
So here are the pics I took as I was building this monstrosity.
I'm not sure of the company, but we used some sort of generic terrain pieces for the boiler. The body is just foamboard and plasticard.
Built a quick hip unit. More foamboard and plasticard.
This is beginning of the legs. The 'bones' are plastic piping. We bought this stuff special because it nested to give that sort of piston look. Hip, knee and ankle joints are plastic (nylon?) spacers and whatnot that we bought at a Home Depot.
Beginnings of the feet. More plasticard and foamboard.
