I recently unearthed my set from the big pile of boxes and decided to paint them up as I had turned up short on SF terrain for a game this week.
You can see Mortaria for scale wandering through the ruins.
First came the plaster which is Menoth Base (P3) and a brush up of Splintered Bone (Reaper).
Grays were next using Dark Grey (Craft Smart) and a brush up of Misty White (Reaper)
After the grays I did metals using gun metal gray (Vallejo) then the GW technical paints Ryza Rust and Typhus Corrosion with top brush of Misty Gray (Reaper) and Rustungs Farbe (Old Gamecraft labelled Fantasy Forest... but yeah its just silver :))
The chest was done using my standard wood process described in detail here
I kind of liked the textured walls that make the building look reinforced.
I'm not really sure how the building names were derived although the Destroyed Robotics Lab has a lot of regularly spaced holes in the walls like for power conduits or tubing of some sort.
Here is a "before shot" , I find I often skip that because I just see the finished thing in my head.
I liked the layout of these and they are really useful terrain pieces on the tabletop. The spacing is very good and the models take paint very well. The two buildings took were turned out in a couple of hours with almost zero prep.
As the games progress I'll add slogans and posters etc... evolving scenery!
Next up A few shots of the WiP Raging Heroes 54mm Raven the Chainbreaker.
There was some minor bubbling mostly in the top of the head and in the small of the back. This bubbling was mild and the tiny pits were easily filled with liquid greenstuff. Bubbling of this type is common and not a cause for concern.
Otherwise the casting was very clean with just a couple of vents in the small of the back to sort out.
I did manage to break the connecting chain between the to poles of her back banner while cleaning the model but I kind of liked the way it looked broken so just cleaned up around the chain link and left it swinging free.
It has some really cool stuff on it... more on those next time!
