VERY inspiring work Iain, I'm really looking forward to seeing how you paint these up. Are you going to go with those oldschool Munda colors like the blue-grey and green...with loads of rivets and hazard stripes?

The lift is REALLY cool, btw.

Thanks!

And yes, aiming for similar tones to the old cardboard buildings, although they're somewhat lighter on the rivets!

Really liking the lift!

Are you using foam core or some other material for the walls? I might have missed something there.

I'm using foamed PVC rather than Foamcore. More durable, and can handle superglue, so much easier to work with.

I'll echo Gits sentiments. The tags are looking very nice.

And as if you haven't doodled on a little Under the Couch logo on there somewhere? Perfect retro-cross promotion!


How much of this terrain have you assembled so far? Any chance of seeing a shot of it all set up?

There was a shot in this post of the lot together. That's in a fairly tight cluster, and obviously the flat-top platforms can be split into two pieces, but I think I still want another 3-4 decent sized pieces (and a minehead!) to flesh out a full table. Thinking of adding a water reclamation pool and possibly a modular canal, just because water features always look cool...

It's a dark brown (AK Interactive Rust Base spray, or Game Colour Charred Brown brushed on, then a drybrush of P3 Ember Orange, a light drybrush of P3 Pig Iron for travelled bits like ladder rungs and steps, and then Army Painter Dry Rust dabbed messily on to upwards-facing surfaces.

Although the specific colours don't actually matter that much, since rust comes in such a wide range of shades...

Wow... even better than I'd pictured them pre-paint. That shade of blue is right on, and I really like your rust effects. I'll second Gordy's request for a quick recipe.

Good work on the generator tower, Insaniak. Personally I feel it's a little sparse for something like a generator, but it's a fine piece of terrain never the less!

Your tagging is also top notch. Complemented fantastically by the weathering.

Actually, I agree that the generator piece could have stood to be bulkier, but it was really just an excuse to have something in the central shaft. My old cardboard version, I used to have a Pringles can that I shoved down the middle of it, but that was a bit too bulky for the look I was going for here.

I just want to say that hinged catwalk support is a great idea! Well done. Someone needs to mass produce those.
