The walls are finished and ready to keep out any unwanted guests....

I painted the walls with an airbrushed and only lightly weathered them (by my standards), since I wanted the appearance that they are well maintained. I've run out of Mantic bases but I plan to add another section or two in the future.

Holy smoke, those are sick.  I love the little details like the cameras!

Some WIP pieces

A couple of 3D printed containers, 2 Conflix grey buildings which I will pimp out, a toxic pool of cheese with walkway, a classic scifi piece - a pringle style storage tower.

I've finished the storage tank and its ready to paint. I'm not convinced about the balcony but i will carry on, as it was a lot of work and I dont want to spend more time on it.

In perhaps a wargames first, I've used parts from some children's LoL Dolls (the pink containers)!  The rest is a mix of 3D printed, plasticard, wire, sprues and bases. I sliced some of the bolts of the conflix terrain and used them on this for some of the plates

The tower is completed. I wasn't sure about the design while it was under construction but it looks good finished.







I forgot to mention the ladder is from the Conflix syberclicks set and it works well.

I've run out of Mantic bases but I plan to add another section or two in the future.

The first thing that popped to my mind when  I read this was ... why don't use a bare piece of wall to make a mold and then pour new wall sections with resin or dental plaster?
Might save a ton of work and spare you chasing down bases.

On top I would like to add that I really like what you have created here. Pure genius.

The next piece ready for painting is a giant vat of cheese! This may be a homage to one of the players in our group who is renowned for using cheesy lists.

I changed the gangplank as the other one was too big and its not fixed down yet, so will be easier to paint. Its made mostly from Conlfix syberclicks parts with Dungeons and lasers stairs and a PVC foam frame.

The vat is made from a blank CD case and there is a couple of fluorescent lamp starters and a random electrical piece. The cheese is made from rubber caulk.





Thanks

Fantastic!  I think it now needs a little guy with a long mixing pole.
