GB 41 - Lupusj's Industrial Discharge - Complete!

Post by lupusj » Sun Jan 27, 2013 3:13 am

I’ve got an idea for an industrial board theme with an underground facility, so I thought I’d do the discharges.

Intention is that it may be able to provide cover from the industrial smoke/smog, and that it can count as either difficult or dangerous terrain because of the waste products.

The basis of the terrain is the plastic from a calligraphy set. The large sections at the bottom of the picture are where the three pens were shipped, the odd shaped bit with three long bulges and the big square on the left hand side are from the nibs. The remaining sections are from where the ink cartridges sat. The black section is from the packaging of a plastic birthday medal that I was given last year. Pink bits are a drinking straw, the discharge is PVA glue left to dry. Final section is GW hobby sand.

Next, I added some cotton wool to make the smoke.

Image


I sprayed everything with gloss enamel in order to help the cotton wool retain it’s shape, then primed it black, leaving some white showing through the cotton wool (though not much). It appears that either the enamel or the undercoat dissolved parts of the plastic, which is perfect – I had wanted to do some decay modelling on the piece but spent so much time on my Painting Deathmatch entry that I didn’t get to it.

Next I basecoated the metal with a 1:2 mix of black and silver. This took two coats (picture at the end of the first coat). I then drybrushed the whole area with a 1:5 mix of black and silver.

Image

Green painted pine green (no real surprises there). Watered down brown was applied into all of the recesses to start the rusty effects.

Image

The rust was built up by stippling on a light brown/sienna.

Image

The ooze was basecoated a 1:1 mix of yellow and sienna.

Image

Light green drybrush.

Image

Ooze built up with pure yellow to a sickly shade.

Image

Highlighted with silver and a bit of stippling and stripes to add to the degraded look.

Image

Final step was some scenic clumps and some scorched grass.

Image

Final product, with Marine for scale:

Cool, I like the sludge from the pipe idea.
