This Week in Scenery.

I have a job that requires I work on the weekends, so my "weekend" falls on Tuesday and Wednesday. I, unfortunately, did not complete any projects. However, I have some shots of works in progress to share. First up is what I'm referring to as the "Machine Shop". The upcoming Nerd Night campaign will involve factories that we will use to produce resources, so I set out to build a factory. Rather than produce one giant factory, my plan is to create three mid sized pieces that when combined give the feel of a manufacturing area. I also made this piece partially ruined but largely intact so that it could feasibly be still in use while still being highly playable.

This next piece was a total stream of conciousness build. I had two ruined wall barriers that I bought at Adepticon that were still sitting out and waiting to be put away. I started messing around with placing them on a base and nothing seemed to look good at first. Then I started brainstorming on using them for a classic ruined temple design (classic in that GW have made several variations on the ruined temple concept that are all vaguely similar.) Here's my take on it:

That's it for now. More to come!

I built almost that exact same temple myself. The only difference being that I went to Michael's craft store and bought two little lions to set out in front on the left and right of the entrance steps.

I like the idea of three smaller building to build a complex instead of one monster building. I know from experience that bigger pieces can be a little unwieldy on the table and the smaller pieces will give you more flexibility in placing your terrain for your scenarios.

I agree about the smaller buildings.

These all look great so far.

Glad to see you found a good use for my wall sections.

I like the little touches on the temple - the detailing on the cross bar over the pillars, and the little boxes on the side of the building.

Thanks all!

And once again, I find ways to sneak in bits of sprue. The detailing on the parapet are sections of sprue cut on my "The Chopper" (its a device that looks like a paper cutter shrunk down but uses a standard razor blade.)

I need to go back and chip up the floor behind the parapet. I totally missed that until I was scrutinizing the pics.
