Last month I was asked to provide two tables of terrain for a coming Infinity tournament, and immediately got to work building and painting my rather large collection of pieces. A large number of these were still in their boxes (I occasionally go through periods of impulse buying terrain, especially when I've been playing a lot of Infinity), and the largest of these were put aside when construction was complete - I had something special in mind.
My friend Winner Dave is a dab hand with an airbrush, as you may have seen from some of his previous posts. After seeing how quickly he finished a group of Warsenal shipping crates, I asked him to airbrush several buildings for me; not to finish them completely but give them a great looking basecoat I could work from.
Real life got in the way for many weeks, but eventually I managed to get these pieces built, undercoated and delivered to Dave. He did this fine work for me at a tremendous speed, and I am more than happy with the results! I have not managed to finish them off with details and graffiti just yet (a project for the New Year and the next tournament, I reckon), but I think with this paint job they will be more than adequate for gaming, and look better than many of the terrain pieces I have played on in the past! I may have to requisition his services again in the future...
Gamma Building by Warsenal - Shop
|Simple and elegant, the work Dave has done really brings out what would otherwise be a dull box|
|It feels a shame to paint anything over the sides of the building, and it may yet survive (almost) untouched|
|Dave has attempted a stone-effect for the interior, which I think works nicely|
RIBD Street Bar by Warmill - Shop
|The Street Bar from Warmill is one my all-time favourite pieces of terrain, and I am happy that Dave has given me something brilliant to work from|
|The glowing pink of the lights and sign is masterful, and really proves the value of the airbrush for OSL|
|The interior detail is staggering|
|As a hotel manager with a long history behind the bar, I intend to give this a great deal of attention|
Spetznaz Tower by Warsenal - Shop
|This sniper tower is a thing of beauty, and with Dave's excellent airbrushing, should be a pleasure to paint|
|The tower is a lot larger than I expected, especially for the stated price. Warsenal offers good value|
|Intended for use in Infinity, the Spetznaz Tower is well proportioned for 28mm models|
Hoboxes by Warmill - Shop
|The Hobox is Warmill's idea of a Japanese Sleeping Pod in the future, supplied to house the homeless|
|Dave has given them a military-style green colouring - maybe these boxes have been requisitioned for a military purpose? I especially love the glowing blue lights on the sides|
|The boxes offer ample cover for light infantry|
|Even TAGs will find these very useful|
Billboards by Warsenal - Shop
|Large advertisements, I intend to cover the black display screens with large adverts or graffiti|
|Dave's work on the struts, with weathering and highlights, is fantastic|
