Not where I should be

Thank you all.

@ Vik, there will eventually be at least 3 more tiles, this one is 12 " sq. There will be loose covers for the 2 pits.
@ Big H, well your work inspires pieces like this. I like the Tamiya clears too, but they are more expensive and I am really only trying some experiments with the np, to see if it is viable. So far has promise.
@ Gits, thank you sir.

Few more details on the go.
Signage..


bits and pieces...




Some of it in place...



As always commentary welcome, thanks for looking.

I can't tell if its attention to detail or just making sure your minis are safe that prompted you to make fire extinguishers. But this is 40k, needs more weirdness in their fire suppressant technology. Like a creepy cyber cherub that descends from the ceiling and vomits CO2 while speakers blare the prayer of fire death.

Ah ha, I know where those signs/symbols came from. I lifted a set from some Alien fan website to use on models.

Great work. It's coming alive all the time.

What's wrong with black nail polish. I loved the confused looks and double-takes I got while wearing it (considering the rest of me was generally "normal" looking). It also reduced the amount of nail biting I did and gave me the longest finger nails I've ever had (could even be used to scratch with).

I even got hold of a white nail polish that had a nozzle in the lid and started painting patterns on my nails, from stripes to checks and all manner of things. They got even better looks.

Bit of salty work, probably a waste of time but hey... put a coat of grey over it...

After salt brushed off.

Grey

White.

Sponged on rust...deep brown, then red, then orange and back and forward to build up layers.

Ragged over with thinners.

Seconded, except for the Sergeant Pepper part. I'd say it was his "Born to Run". But that's just me. We all have our favorites. Makes life more interesting, the variety.

The signage is good. You're not going to hide a killer rabbit under one of those floor grates, are you?

Those Oxygen(?) tanks and fire extinguishers are very effective details.

Thanks everyone.

@ Dave, Thank you sir, means a great deal coming from guys like you and Red.
@ Red no rabbit's but now you have given me an idea!
@ Grimdork, Thanks bud really appreciate the comment.
@ Alaricuk, Thanks sir.
@ b-tone, Wait til its finished, what do you mean, it is finished......JK Thank you, very much appreciate the comments, still got a few bits but it is getting there.

OK took a break for the day to do something a bit different, but I guess not a million miles away...




These are WIP shots, lots to do on them still, but wanted to do something different, going back to finish up the scene.

I think I am 80% certain I will not be entering this as an entry to the LoER comp. Not sure whether to enter the Ork Distillary, can't decide.

Anyways thank you so much for the feedback and thank you for just looking in, really helps me, and boosts me.
