Industrial Terrain Project: Day 10

Ok, that’s not entirely true…  Day 10.  I only recently started chronicling/blogging my crafting exploits and I have been fiddling with the four terrain pieces I'm detailing in these posts for quite some time. So I actually have no clue of the actual ‘start date’.  Arbitrary number ‘10’ it is.

Almost all the terrain builds for 40K I see out in web-land consist of structures which have been pulverized or half buildings with the plumbing hanging out.  Don’t get me wrong, many of these pieces are absolutely brilliant. Wanting to do something different I opted for an intact industrial landscape.  The revised 5th ed. building rules (treating them exactly as a non-moving vehicle) and PlanetStrike allow for easy integration and management of solid structures in most games.

This piece below, artfully named 'piece one', is a motley assortment of PVC fixtures, gutted electrical boxes, plastic cross-stitch lattice (I think that’s the technical term) and various sundry pieces from the bits box all mounted on ¼” MDF.  Once complete and on the table, the edges of the pieces will serve as street curbs to form streets.  Each structure will possess an address which allows for easy identification of the building specifics for game purposes.  For example: this structure will be Building 1, Capacity 5, Armor 10.  So the address sign will read: B1C5A10.

Build stage 1 complete and primed.  Detailing to follow.
