Manufactorum

A week after starting this mini-project, I’m very pleased to say it’s finished.

I really enjoyed building and painting this terrain piece.  This was the first time I have used the Typhus Corrosion technical paint and, while it took a bit of getting used to, helped me create some nice rust effects.  I’ve also tried to keep the colours in keeping with the other Manufactorum terrain piece that I painted some time ago.

I think that this building will be great to use as an objective in some games, but it’s too small to use as a bastion.  Can’t wait to include it in my next game 🙂

I still have the rest of the Imperial Sector box to build, I hope to create another whole building as well as some ruins.

Almost finished this mini-project.

The details, such that they are, are more or less done. While it’s very tempting to go overboard, I’m trying to keep it fairly simple so as not to detract from my armies’ models.

That said, I’m going to experiment for the first time with the Typhus Corrosion technical paint. Looking forward to it.

Yesterday I finished basing and undercoating my new Manufactorum and today I spent a relaxing half hour drybrushing it with my last dregs of Boltgun Metal.

That’s all for tonight but since I’m on holiday this week, I imagine I’ll make some more progress tomorrow.

Not bad for a couple of hours. As well as four Manufactorum sprues worth of walls, I also used some plasticard to block the open windows and a spare Modular Movement tray for the roof.

I also left a couple of gaps to enable walkways to be attached later to link this to future buildings. You can also see some gargoyles which will help support them when they’re in place.

All that’s left to do is base it, I have some MDF that I’ll cut to size this evening, and then it’s on to the painting.

And so it begins…

After a gap of at least two years, I’m finally getting more scenery built. I picked up an Imperial Sector box ages ago (when it was considerably cheaper!) but never really got round to doing anything with it. I also picked up a few other IS sprues on eBay along the way.

This evening I’m going to try to build a whole manufactorum. Not a big one, more a tool shop than a Titan assembly facility.

This is the first completely new project since moving to the new house in December. I’ll stop pissing about now and get on with it 😉
