Various Sci-Fi Interior Update Sunday March 29 Page 2
« on: February 15, 2009, 01:16:43 PM »
... for a Doom-Stalker-Fallout-Alien inspired Dungeon-Crawler.

I wanted to create a dirty and shabby look. Like the equipment is in use for a long time on a space station/secret underground lab deep in the "zone" or the interior of the millenium falcon from Star Wars.

Big scratchbuild consoles:






Small Antenociti's Workshop consoles:




Small Schratchbuild consoles:





Some Grendel Consoles:





Info Tower:




Any comments are welcome.

Those are excellent. I think the info towers are my favorite, instantly put to mind many films. How did you get that 'cracked effect' on your scratch builds? 8)

The heat blistered/crackled texture on the first console looks great.  Nice colours for the consoles too, very Star Wars, makes a change from the gunmetal colour I often think of for these type of things.

On the last pair of towers, I love these, how were they made?

I see parts of an AT or ATX power supply, are the panels from Antenociti?  And what is the structure made from, and is that a bottle cap on the top?

Thanks for your comments. :)

I created the "cracked"-effect accidently but was very pleased with it.

The scratchbuilds are made from hard-plastic boxes of "Tic-tac" peppermint dragees. I painted the boxes with a thin layer of white "Revell" enamel paint. When the first layer was dry i applied a second even more thinned layer. The thinner must have caused the first layer to wrinkle so that it looks like heat/age cracked paint.

The structure of the info-tower is from the Urban War Platformer Set.

I used parts of a broken Pc power supply and screens from Antenociti's and yes on top that is a bottle cap from a milk carton. :)

Very, very good. I think the cracks could also be made with white glue - or maybe even a glue gun.

I absolutely have to copy the idea with the printed monitor screens - it looks fabulous!!

Great looking terrain pieces. You will be thrilled to use them I am sure. By the way, where did you get the Alien figure?

Bought a box set of these (AvP) for 5!  Always wanted some aliens and now I got them.  Will play them in CoZo next week.

Great bargain - 7 figures plus scenery.  Just need to remove them from the bases they come with and we're in business!

You can press almost any plastic gizmo into service, I guess. Just takes a little tinkering and som paint  :)

Great scenery! Just the kind of stuff I'm looking for inspiration for my own planned sf-dungeon ...
