GB54 : Factory 01 - Completed

Post by IG_Guardsman » Mon Mar 31, 2014 10:02 am

Here is what I did so far... not much, but it's a start. I plan on adding details and some extras... and as Tinker said- rivets! I think that will be the biggest head ( hand ) ache of all - cutting and gluing all those little details, but that's what will make it look better.

I was wondering about the colour of a regular W40K factory building - is it greyish-black, as most burnt down buildings in war-torn worlds of the Emperor, or it won't look that out of place if it's a different colour scheme?

I would use some color on this. I have had good luck with yellow, blue and green. You can always mute or tone them way down with weathering pigments or washes. I have not had good luck with red when I chip the paint with rust effects under the chipped paint. The rust effects seem to get lost in the red paint after I weather the surface.

Here is an update - it takes much longer than expected and planned, but... that's life :)

What comes next and hopefully on time - to place the window, to add some rust and weathering and to complete the concrete around the place.

What's done is done! Whoever said that progress is slow process... was talking about me :) Many new things tried for the first time in this build, and I'm happy with how most of the things came out in the end.

Love the bottle cap barrels.

Looks good, like the weathering.
