    That table looks great and what a silly question....
    We saved Mystery Science Theater 3000! Season 11 is on Netflix NOW!

    SEASON 12 WAS CONFIRMED AT THE VERY END OF THE TURKEY DAY MARATHON! *swoon*

    It's on Random: A mostly CSM PLOG

    Thanks, Guys

    Here are the last few tiles of the board:

    This is a crashed aquila lander I obtained from my friend. The large and small piece was glued to the tile and given some rubble effects to mesh with the rest of the city scape:

    Finally, the second half-tile building made from pegasus hobbies components. This building fits well with the 40k/cities of death model line:

    The building's attic was the trickiest part. Since the pegasus line doesn't come with any floor or roof components, I had to make the floors and roof from textured plasticard. This was finicky but I finally managed to figure out the dimensions with some cities of death girders on the sides of the building. It turned out quite nicely and looks as though a bomb went off in the attic!

    Now that all the buildings (that's right!) have all been completed, it's time to start painting! stay tuned for a tutorial post on how I paint my buildings...

    One last building:

    If you remember some of my earlier posts, I was in the process of making this other half tile building. It is now finished and I am playing it as a radio tower:

    I also made a little balcony using a piece from the wyvern kit:

    The half tile buildings break up the patterns of the square tiles and add density to the city.

    Hello, All!

    Major update, so buckle up!

    I made some great progress on the city board today - I got everything basecoated! It only took me an afternoon and I used only three colours:

    I made sure to buy lots of spraypaint and it was worth the preparation. I used up almost all the black and comfortably used up one can of each other colour (keep in mind, these spraycans are jumbo sized - even longer than your average spray can).


    With these colours, I was able to paint the entire city! all buildings and roads are now complete:

    As you can see, the spraypainting gives the city a unique and uniform feel. It already looks relatively finished! However, there is still lots of detailing that needs to be done - Luckily, I can do this over the winter comfortably. I am happy I was able to get this done as the weather will be too cold for priming outside now.

    Regards,

    That worked out excellent. Smart to mix in different colours; you get some variation but overall uniformity.

    Re: Cities of Death!!! By Iron Kid

    Hello,

    Although the city is completely basecoated, there are still a few other tid bits I plan to add to the city

    First and foremost, I am adding some details on to the soup can containers. Being the perfectionist I am, I added some rivets, a top ventilation and a space for a numbered decal:

    Next are some photos of other barricades, scatter terrain, and markers I plan on adding to the city that are in different stages of completion:

    Great use of those soffit vents- I have done something similar in the past.
