I may have considered the abandoned city pretty much finished a while back, but posting pictures on Facebook was to prove costly - very costly indeed! Top suggestions to improve the city included adding vegetation, which you may have seen last week, and some taller buildings. I currently have three very tall buildings in progress, but while waiting for these to arrive from DarkOps I bashed out a quick trio of Residential Blocks from Blotz. These mid-sized to small buildings will bulk out the table nicely, and make it look more like a proper city!
Here's the result - two nice Residential Blocks (one of which you may have seen in a step-by-step guide recently) and a ruined building overgrown with trees to really add to the feel of encroaching nature. Enjoy!
|The new additions, with some additional trees to help tie in the overgrown ruin in the centre|
|This latest round of the ruined city project was relatively fast, as I am well practised in bashing these out now|
|The overgrown ruin was a response to comments saying the city needed to look more overgrown. I acquired some smaller trees from the local Model Railway shop and got to work!|
|Plasticard details like the large pipe and girders add to the feel of the collapsed building, and some useful spots of colour|
|The first small Residential Block features a large number of broken down and rusted satellite antennae, taken from the 4Ground range|
|Breaking up the skyline sometimes involves more than just vents and ducts!|
|The second Residential Block may be recognised from my recent construction guide, mentioned above|
|This is simpler than the other, but they were both incredibly easy to build and paint|

|The overgrown and ruined buildings all together, with some trees and piled car hulks|
|These buildings involved a lot more work, adding rubble and debris as well as copious amounts of vegetation and converting a crashing Typhoon Attack Helicopter|
|Three new buildings, small in size but great for bulking out the city and making it feel more claustrophobic for the invading forces!|
