You May Fire When Ready


Something a little more violent for the growing Dropzone Commander terrain collection - the Aegis Orbital Defence Laser brings not just a piece of terrain, but a vital objective and the option for special scenarios
This item was a gift from a very generous friend, and though it may be missing the entrance bunker, I'm not going to argue with free toys! 
The growing city
The Defence Laser was painted with a small amount of nrust and weathering as I wanted it to represent an abandoned position, captured by the Resistance forces and used for their own ends. It also covers a lot of my mistakes during the painting process!
Until I have some more terrain this will do as a nice stand-in for a Medium-sized building
Instead of bright silver I decided to paint the laser a burnished gold, with verdigris/turquoise detail. I am much more confident with getting a smooth finish with these colours
Transfers from the Warhammer 40,000 Imperial Knight kit add some detail to the housing of the laser
More detail and weathering on the back, while still looking fully armed and operational!
This is the first major military installation for the Dropzone city, and I am pleased with how it turned out. Next up - more abandoned buildings and something a little more jolly
Thanks for reading,

  1. Looks awesome. Constantly humbled by your painting when I look at my to do list.
