Had a day up into the 50s so I got as much done as I can. Here is the current state....I still have to do the drybrushing to the depressed area, paint all the details, finish the craters, and I am sure I am forgetting some stuff. Oh, the wood planks...yikes, there are a lot of them...

I did a drybrush on the ground with a brown, medium brown and sand. The brown is pretty subtle but did it over about 50% in patches, then the medium brown over about 30% and the sand 15%. There is some black around the craters and the dark brown base color, so 5 total colors.

So, I finally finished up! I had a really hard time getting the light right, so just moved it into the kitchen and took some pictures. Could not take shots of all the little details, but even so, get ready for a massive picture dump. The vast majority are taken with the bunker in, but if I decide that the fluff of the game doesn’t warrant the bunker or I put it in a configuration where it doesn’t make sense, I have the flat piece to replace it. I tried to put little details around, like bits of ammo, skulls etc. It is a hard balance between not enough and too much 

General Shots and a few of the details.

The Cliff Walls

The Tunnels

(this is the flat peice where the bunker can go)

With Models for scale...well, it is 6' X 4'

Image

Image

(I forgot to close the lid all the way here...you can see the peg on the near left I put in to hold it in place. The foam warped a little after painting)
Image

Image

With some additional terrain-one of the reasons to leave it flat...but stackability is the main reason ;)

Image

Image

It is modular, so here are some alternate configurations. I was in a hurry, so did not match them up as much as I should have and only did a few. The tunnels are all the same distance from the sides, so all match up no matter what order or orientation you place them in. If you don’t worry about the tunnels much, then there are even more ways to put it together.

Image

(I actually really like this one because the trench in the mic-front left actually dumps into the evelvator shaft area-I can make some cool house rules with these configurations)

Thanks. It is supposed to get cold again, but today it is in the 50s.

Here is on last shot, stacked and stored on my terrain shelf :)

Next up is a set of train tables for my daughter's HO scale railroad. She is tired of having it sitting in the corner. Guess I am losing the garage now :)

Very nice, looks awesome! Usually a project this big doesn't end up with much attention to detail, but this one rocks!
