I'm really impressed with this terrain... It's certainly a step above and beyond the stuff that I tend to play on. (Which tends to just be interesting bits of polystyrene foam arranged in a mildly interesting way...)

In short, you've officially made me jealous, old boy!

I haven't had time to make much progress with these recently - I was away all last week and don't think I'll get a chance to work on them this weekend, but I have found time to add in the stairs & ladders, paint the drums and cans in the smaller building and put up a few posters.  Hopefully next week I'll have time to paint the exteriors...

looking great  8)
that second one looks massive! what're the dimensions?

any plans on sharing the posters for those of us too lazy to make our own?  ;D

are the platform supports staying white?
i think form an asthetics point of view, having the supports line up would have been good; having them at incoherant distances detracts (ever so) slightly  :-[

I think I've played on smaller boards than the second piece.  Very impressive though - inquisitor often lacks a suitably cluttered, urbanised landscape, and these terrain pieces fill that hole pretty well.
I had better point out, that some of the clubs I represent are of a military bent.

The columns are actually grey, not white - they're the same grey as the floor unfortunately, but the budget I'd set for paint didn't stretch to a second shade of grey. The reason they don't line up is due to a stupid mistake I made. On the smaller building I set the columns slightly back from the edge of the platform as it looked better, but then without thinkingdid the same for the ground floor of the larger one - I then realised if I lined them up it'd restrict the walkways too much. Unfortunately by this time they were securely glued in place and removing them would have caused serious damage to the walkways, which are basically cardboard...

As for the dimensions, you can get an idea by looking at the bits with models on for an idea of the scale, but it's about a foot tall and the base is a little over a foot square.

EDIT: I can e-mail the posters to anyone who wants them, drop me a PM and I'll send them out.

Afternoon all,

I decided to have a big push this week and to try and get these buildings finished.  Before painting the exterior of the buildings I decided to spend a couple of nights painting the crates, barrels etc that I'd gathered to fill out the warehouses.



I then moved on to finished the small building...





...and then the large one.





As you can see, I was going for speed and the general look of the thing without having to spend too long painting anything.  I did as much as possible using spray paints, the either used drybrushing, washes or spraying from a distance to dirty things up a little, then most of the detail was done by printing out posters and packing labels, though I did use a few transfers on the large barrels.

Right now I'm working on a generator/computer core to fit in the centre of the large building so it can be used as something other than a warehouse - nothing fancy, just a few Pringle cans stuck together with bits stuck to the outside...

 - Dave

more nice work Dave, nice touch with the extra panelling around the large hay bails to make them more container-like.

Inspiring stuff Dave :)

I really like the colour scheme you've gone for, if it were me, I'd have opted for boring grey, highlighted with lighter boring grey!

Are the barrels finished? If so, I'm not fully convinced that neon green and yellow fits into the Grimdark future :S Maybe a dark metallic colour with some yellow and black chevrons would help them fit in a bit more, maybe with some bulletholes and some mysteriously coloured liquid oozing out?
