Ministorum chapel

So I took a break from infantry and instead finished an old piece of terrain - an imperial building. Since the release of GW modular building sets those are mostly all we see on the cityfight tables these days. They are nice, but unfortunately the ways to assemble them are limited after all and the blocks repeat rather often. That makes whole playing boards made with GW terrain look repetitive, boring and over detailed with all too familiar bits. On the other end of the spectrum, scratchbuild buildings look unique and occasionally very cool, but those take a lot of time to put together and even more to make them detailed enough. So in my opinion, the perfect cities of death terrain is somewhere in the middle, made as a result of  using GW blocks with various other materials to create unique and at the same time properly detailed buildings. And that what I wanted to put together for my first 40k building - small Ministorum chapel:
