PostSubject: Postapocalyptic apartments!   Sat 7 Feb 2015 - 15:19

So last spring i started on a aprtment bulding for our post-ap skirmish game. It's not finished yet, I seem to build frantic for two weeks at a time, then i just get fed up. But I recently realised that only the roof and a few details are left on this building.

It's 16 flats and 4 stories, with an janitors room (or something) on the roof. I'll post the process up untill now and hopefully I will find it in me to finish it:) And also be free of the neverending nagging from my mates.

I hotglued all the walls on the bottom level, then i continued on witt doing the same on every level untill I got three loose leves and one fixed at the bottom. the idea was to have the diferent levels loose so that you could lift them out whilst playing and the walls to be fixed also.









The doors to the elevators




And then I had my first brake. All the levels where done in about two days, I went on a vacation and picked up in august again.

I glued three sides of the building, leaving one so I would be able to work on the elevator shaft


Bathroom, the tiled floor was from some packaging..


At first i painted all the walls but soon realised I could use tapestry, so found one old tapestry catalog with samples of actuall tapestry.


scraped the tapestry with this



and then weathering..




pic's from a magazine












a lot of "scrap" from cut papersquares


more thrash (balls of toilette paper and thin greenstuff layers over it)




I started on some furniture and other stuff

Aquarium;)




electricity boxes










from the level above:) A hole in the floor is a nice escape route!
















up to the roof






Did this peice in sculpey and whatnot, the reason for the ruler is that I wanted the same witdh as the corridor, so that you could place it in diferent positions between games






elevator shaft, it looks a little rickety, but it was impossible for me to get it straight all the way:)

That is SO COOL! It's an Urban Dungeon/Labyrinth. There are or were buildings like that near where my friend, Steve, lived in the Bronx....VERY dangerous places. Be that as it may your BEAUTIFULLY IMAGINATIVE creation looks to be a suspenseful spot for a game. GREAT WORK!   thumbsup

That's totally awesome! But where do you store all your great terrain. You show up with nice terrain all the time here and some of it is really big. Do you have your own gaming room for that?

Wow!

Niiice.
The aquarium is almost my favourite... visited a friend recently who had neglected taking care of his, and your mini-version is soooo close to the mark, it's almost scary!

Also a big fan of the greenhouse, the tags, the rubble...

I'm just going to stop and sum up all that's in your pictures, because it's all very impressive, straight up to the smallest details...

Thanks for commenting everybody!

Grimscull: My apartment is full of terrain, usually I but things on the top shelf of my many, many bookshelfes, or in boxes that I try to store somewhere... But most of my terrain, like the desert board I have in the thread over at dakka, is att my local gaming club. The sad part is that I have not been there for almost a year, and as I allow all people to use it, and when a lot of people use these things they tend to brake:( I dread to see it again the day I return! (I hope it's still in playable condition).

Nala: Haha that sounds like a place you wouldn't want to wake up at:) My intentions was truly to capture the feeling of a run down place. I looked at a lot of pictures from pripyat, chernobyl, for reference

This is some ingame pic's from three weeks ago, lot's of random encounters with the inhabitants of the building (postapocalyptic freaks and so on), the scenario was a bandit-bounty-hunt.

If it wasn't for the miniatures' bases it would look like a news report or post apocalypse movie...VERY CINEMATIC effect.   thumbsup
