That's textured wall paper from a home improvement supply store. I should have it completed in the next two weeks (hopefully).

Thus far, the only thing I see that strikes me as 'missing' is a way to integrate the steps into the building. Are you gonna do an additional section to tie them in? Oh, and will the building be playable, or impassable terrain?

yeah the stairs i did totally wrong. I needed to make the bottom step or the second to bottom the top and increase the width. That way the stairs will be very large. The warehouse is usable.

Ok so I decided to really work last night and I revamped the stairs to better suit the building, I added windows and the doors, I picked out the pieces of styrene for the glass, and added some damage to the building.

It's lookin good! I like the 'new' steps. An ornament or column on both sides of the steps near the doorway would look ace, I think.

How are you planning to 'base' the model? Oh, and could you put a mini in the pic for size comparison next time you get the chance to snap pics?

Man that's huge!

OK, maybe not huge, but bigger than I thought it was. From the first shot I was guessing about 12x6, but now it looks more like 20x10 or thereabouts.

Looks so much better with some windows in it; I think that's the point it starts to have some sense of structure and proportion. Before that, it kinda just looked like a box. Now it's a box with holes in it, which is easier to 'read' as a building.

Nice battle-damage too.

Do keep us posted how you get on with this - I'm really interested!

Coming together very nicely there Red.

It is definitely big enough to pump out some stuff like ammo or even small armour. The steps are very cool indeed, keep up the great work!

Ok so I got the foam cutter last night and the square dowels I need for support struts. Ill try to finish more up on the warehouse tonight.


Here are some tank traps i made in my groggy late night giddiness for my foam cutter.




Also how do i get this moved to ongoing projects?(or if someone could do that, that would be great.

I put in some real work tonight and at the suggestion of Hespithe Ive made columns to go on each side of the door. I've added more damage to the building and also put in the support struts on the inside. My digital camera isn't working so no pics just yet, however I'm going to try to put in the catwalk on the inside and outside before tomorrow night.

you may want to make the factory doors bigger. Most factories have larger access doors for vehicles and such.

Plus big doors look cool and fit the gothicesc 40k theme. If not bigger front doors, perhaps a large vehicle access door on the side?
