Speaking of Shadow War, I hear Necromunda is coming back (and the new Star Wars miniature game Legion), so that is a plus with all this terrain I'm building.
I was not going to go crazy on the paint job just like last time, but just continue do something good enough for the tabletop. Industrial terrain, I hate to say it, is boring to paint and I can't get enthused about pipe-fittings and such. However, if one wants to play Shadow War and Necromunda, it's gotta be done.
Last time, I built up Laser Cut Architect's Iron Gulch building #2, so now I built up their building # 1 and sci-fi ish diner.
Assembling was pretty easy for the most part..
However, I did not glue the metal-ribbed something or other to the building for now as I don't really like it..
and I did not glue the Diner sign to the building as it might not be appropriate for things like Star Wars or Necromunda.. However, I will use it for post-apoc..
I was not paying attention reading the directions and accidentally glued the opening to put the back ladder in the front part of the building, but it still works.
Like last time, I copied the paint job from the company's website and painted the buildings a metallic rusting look. These buildings can be used from modern to far future..
For the rest of the pieces painted, I decided to go with a light blue theme because why-the-hell-not as I never painted up blue terrain before, and sci fi is the only avenue I can do so.
I continued on with the metallic rusty look on sci-fi processing plant buildings from Micro Arts Studios, with a touch of blue..
I could have went crazy with these pieces, and made this an intricate paint job, but I just couldn't generate any enthusiasm into painting a processing plant and kept with the simple dirty rusting look.
So, now I have the outlines of a metallic district of sci fi buildings, perhaps in a dirty part of town or a ramshackle colony..
Continuing on with blue-themed terrain, this time I wanted to paint clean; give it that whole utopia look and all that.
I bought this landing pad in mdf from ebay. It came in the mail, but there were no instructions, just pieces.
I just had to go with this ebay picture to figure out what to do..
However, like I always do with mdf, my stubby fingers broke off one of the supports by accident..
So now, at least one side was not going to have the landing pad extensions (circled in red)
I decided to cut off the other three extensions, as I thought to hell with it, the landing pad can do without it.
I painted it up in blue with some landing lights colour in the middle using inks..
Continuing on with the clean blue sci fi theme, I had these Micro Arts studio battlefield hardfoam small city highground pieces..
I am not sure what they are, but maybe LOS blockers for playing in cyberpunk type cities.
The top part has a hexagram pattern, so I thought, maybe it's light from an energy source. So, I put on blue primer with grey on top, followed by yellow inks for the top part to show "light" from the hexagon roof..
Lastly, I had this Micro Arts Taucity habitat that I painted in various shades of blue..
I now have 4 pieces of clean blue themed sci-fi terrain, as well..
For now, I'm done with my dirty and clean blue-themed experiment, and with sci-fi terrain at the moment. Will work on some fantasy next, for a change.
