You cut it more? Could whack a few strips of metal as a kind of 'quick fix' administered by a mek? Also, what does this generator do-whacky look like?

...but, also, the downside of leaving him open to complaints of spamming. Which this isn't. It's just a friendly suggestion that the "EDIT" button is a good way to go.

And, Thanatos, like Fenetik, I'd really like to see the generator thingy!

Yeah, I like. I really think the beaten-up look suits the facts it's orks.

I don't think the genny looks too dirty - it just needs to be bigger! Or, it needs to be in a smaller space. At the moment, it just looks like a bit of scrap that's been forgotten behind the tower (which is fine if it's supposed to be a bit of scrap forgotten behind the tower, but not if it's supposed to 'do' something).

Good looking bit of scrap though. Looks like it might be the engine of some imperial machine. I'd advocate adding some jerry-rigged orkish fuel-feed personally, like some barrel and pipe mechanism above it, something like that. It would bulk it out, cover up more of that blank wall, and give it more of a machine-in-use feel.

Just a suggestion, feel free to ignore it if you like!

I'm trying to keep an eye on all these watchtower and outpost threads, I love terrain-making personally (I'm just rubbish at it). ONe of the ways I got into this was through model railways, so I've always liked the idea of having nice 'scenery'.

Oh, and I like pretty much anything to do with orcs/orks, obviously!

Thanatos -

Dude, your build rocks. I am so looking forward to trying out a few things you have used, I like so much of it.

I need to work more on some Ork terrain, as I am wanting to make an encampment, with the watchtower as the center lookout, maybe a platoon size camp of 30-50 orks boys.

Let you know how it all goes.
