I can't start to talk about building terrain with out first pointing you to the most helpful page on the net http://40kaddict.blogspot.com/terrain-is-everything-standard-template This man has made scratch building buildings and such so much easier and added a layer of detail that most people starting out would never add
this is one i built from his 2 story ruins template but so are all of these
As you can see he gives you a great out line to start with and from that you can shape the final building to suite your needs. I am sure you all took the link at the top to Dwez blog and took a bit of time to look around and saw all the great buildings he has done. The thing you will see is that his interpretations of the plans he made are a little different then what I have done with them and I am sure anything you would make would look different still. I Honestly Feel that is what the GW buildings lack some times. Sure they look nice and all but they all end up looking a little to much alike. There is nothing like a nice set of home built terrain.So from hear out I am going to look to break down any building tips I can muster into quick and easy steps to get you started building your own battlefield. Next Monday look forward to an introduction to fomecore and some simple ways to make it work for you!
