This is very good and will be a key defense point in a game.

I love the rust effect.

How did you do the graffiti?

It is a mix of decals (see my build thread) and paint pen.

This is really nice simple, but effective build and the weathering looks great.
But to be honest I'm not sure how the lettering was painted. The blue in the last pic is this oracle mask?

Yes, that is the mask. The lettering was "reverse painted" - I masked it off then sprayed the shading grey to darken all the concrete around it.

Okay, I can understand it now :)

Very nice build all around and so nice to see more of the detail.  It is always difficult to get pictures of all of the component parts of a build packed into one photo for the entry.

Ya, there's kind of two ways to do it, depending on whether or not the underlying surface will darken or lighten over time. If I had painted the concrete, I would have sprayed a thinned white or grey paint to lighten up the paint instead.
