I see your point about color, though. Then again ruined cities are grey by default. Wink

Perhaps you could add some plants along the road, that would give it color. And since you've alreadt painted the yellow/red, I'd just keep it that way. It's cool, really.

Ok finished the crossroads, and continued on the industrial building. As you can see I painted the edge of the pavement (that was the word!) grey and yellow... comments on that please:



Oh! An another thing I found out painting the edge of the pavement: I have to make the turns and crossroads to both start with a yellow stripe... and not (and remember to paint stripes on the road...

I also found an old industrial silo, and smacked it on a board, to integrate it into the forthcomming city Smile :



Now to clean up my working table... how does it get so messy?! Well, an hour of off-time cleaning up, will definately speed up the process (because then I will be able to find my tools...).

That really is some awesome work! The grey on the pavement is better than the red I think, it blends a bit more and doesn't distract as the red does. Hmm, it is inspiring me to also start building scenery again....

First I apologize for the poor quality of the pics, but it's not that important for what I want to show you.

Ok I've been working a little, and were able to do some ground work. You should be able to get the "feel" of what the potential is in this terrain - I am, meself, very happy about the potential dynamics, and the ability to make really "clusteret" and "dense" cityscapes.

A kind of overview:



And here I placed the (not finished) industrial bits together, to create some more dense terrain. I should be carefull ( I see now ), not to pack the pieces *too* much, disabling my mini's to do actual warfare scratch



Next update will probs be after the weekend, as I have to attend some familiy soiree (or something).

For fluff-reasons I'm working on street signs, and am trying to figure out a good way to make "placeholders" to place lamp-post and street signs in, so they can be taken off and moved around to match the story of the game.

If I may offer a suggestion for future projects: tall buildings and catwalks. Tons and tons of fun during games.

Ya - that is the way to go. Next couple of buildings will be more than 2 levels. Any suggestions on how to make catwalks / overhangs and such, look like they were made of metal? I can't seem to get the hang of it! And splashing boltgun metal is *not* the way Wink tryed it - it all comes down to textrure...

Oh, and I started painting my sign for Wilfrieds Waste-O-Matic. Every city should have one:

Look at the guy in the brush-cup (the Pepsi one)... that is EXACTLY how I felt when I saw your terrain! FU** YEAH!!! It is SUPERB!

Arachas is right (but don't tell him... after a year, I just won my first argument/debate with him 30 secs ago and I need him to feel defeated and crushed! Twisted Evil )... you will need elevation. As you play more, you will start thinking more three-dimensionally... going UP to gain tactical advantages. And NOTHING says EPIC BOSS FIGHT like having both your Leaders fighting in Close Combat in a 3rd Floor rook (whoever gets down may FALL!!!!)

Some inspiration... KEEP UP AMAZING WORK!!!



SUGGESTION: If you are going for the post-apocalyptic look, you need some DRY grass growing in some places and some DUST (drybrush!) in some places (helps minimize the shine of new paint and breaks the monotony of all-concrete town.)

IDEA: This will earn me a 1st Class Ticket to hell... but here I go. Make a devastated playground. Shocked It will humanize your town (DAMN!!! THERE WERE LITTLE KIDS THERE?!?!?! Shocked ) A couple of swings (maybe broken), a slide, etc... Think of the scene in Terminator 2 with the playground....


SEE?!?! Your ART is inspiring all of us! Keep it up man!

Ok, been away some time for real-life reasons, yeah have to have them too Wink

I've started this piece up, because of the advice to get some elevation:





And smacked an old building on a module, just to get some work done:





So hopefully I'll get some work done over the next couple of weeks.

(I know the pics are crap, but my phone is so scratched, and my camera were out of power... exuses i know! ... but I'll promise to make some good ones soon)

Starts looking good. My advise... make sure the terrain is 'playable'. I mean, if I had a guy all the way in the top floor (2nd photo)... can he SHOOT at the ground level (24")? If so... it means that you will need 3 TURNS to reach me. Is that fair? Now... I give my guy a Long-Las Rifle and add a Scope for 36" range. He could spend the WHOLE game up there, shooting at people without a SINGLE chance of getting shot. Now I add Cameoline and/or Skills that allow him to take a Cover Save. You never get me.... not because I'm good but because the terrain cheated you of a fair chance.


I like the 2nd building VERY much! Thanks for sharing!

Hmm get the point concerning the chimney - or whatever that thing is.

I think I solved it by introducing more versality into the height Wink I do not have any more magnets at this time, but I did this:





I think I will use the full height when the terrain allows for it, using gangways and 'bridges' between buildings. And when the fluff demands it Smile

There is so much win in this thread. Smile

Great job man. I wish I had your terrain making skills.

Be sure to add some cover to the top levels. Barrels, debris... something. Or else your guys will be nothing but targets!

MUCH better! Now the tower seems 'reachable'... and looks COOL! On top, you could make a (removable) radar dish (communication array!), surround the platform with a security wall (provides light cover and looks realistic!) and have a permanent ladder (on the right... near the other roof)... then add another ladder from that 'floor' to the one below.

On the left of the model, you could make a gated chain-link fence... the gate broken and the fence torn in some spots. This simulates that at some point, this could had been a 'secured' facility.


AWESOME WORK! Can wait to see MOAR!!!

Quick update:

Added the start of a com. array.

A low wall on ground lvl.

Have commenced work on some sandbags for the tower level.

Have added cardboard at the back of the windows. They are to be painted black, and barred with tree and metal pieces.

The door is a first try to make a metal re-inforced door.

The line just under the "roof" is to be painted red on metal - just for flawor.

Added some "Pipelines" out of the building - have yet to find out why they need that at a communications array...

Gatlag has a valid point, and grimdark is really all the explanation you need. If you want some more realism it's easy. Cooling water. A comm array that big would have plenty of electronics (think big banks of servers) which make tons of heat, enough that'd they'd screw up thier circiutry. To solve the problem they dig a well (or it could go to a set of underground pipes) and pump in nice clean cool water. Going to pipes would make more sense I think, since you made two then it's probably supply and return, and if you are taking from a well, there wouldn't be any need to return it.

EDIT: Can't believe I forgot to mention how awesome everything looks. I could work for a year and have little hope of matching what you've done in weeks (if it has even been that long).

OK been laying low for a few days, but here is what I've done so far:

- The windows have been barred

- The "metal stripe" around the house have been painted but lack weathering.

- Put op some permanent ladders to reach the higher levels

- Put some pipeline in to add some features.

I still need to:

- weather it down

- find out what to do with the front entrance pipelines.

- put up some propaganda posters and commecials Wink

- put up some sandbags on the higher level, to give some cover.









There it is - stay tuned for more Wink
