Here's my most recent terrain creation, an abandoned distillery converted from a 4th of July decoration. Just one in a whole line of projects the club is working on for our upcoming Post-Apoc campaign.

Nice job! Is that a beer garden on the roof?

Really nice building, i like how the ladder leads all the way up to the roof, it makes for a easy access to the roof, and good for the flow in the game!

Thanks!
I rarely account for interiors on enclosed buildings like this so I like to make all surfaces as playable as possible.

Hmm, I'm not sure, maybe 5-6 hours total, but it was done in fits and starts over a week or so plus one afternoon.

At this point, I've got a big enough stock of terrain junk bits and enough shortcut quick-methods that if I can just get myself to sit down and focus, I can do these kinds of projects pretty quickly.

looks absolutely fantastic. I'd love to see the process and know more about exatly what was used. I'm trying to get into the whole making os scenario bits, but everything I find in terms och plasticard and the likes is very thin and making a house out of it would result in some pretty flappy stuff.

Could you share a bit about how you made this and what you would consider the parts that proved a challenge?

Glad you liked it Purifier,

I'm not sure what to say about the process beyond what's in the blog post I linked to. No part of the building was a particular challenge. Have a read through and I'd be happy to answer any questions about any particular part of the build.

As for what to build the structure out of. I'm not sure. I rarely build the structure for my buildings. Rather I almost always use existing toys, decorations (as with this one), etc as the basis and convert from there.

I've seen alot of folks that use plascard (with proper refinforcement), foamboard, (probably the most common) or even cork (Check Matakishi's Tea House site for more on cork building).

Thanks for the kind words guys.

Element206,
Wish I could claim it as a scratchbuild. I have the utmost respect for those who do, but I'm a bit too lazy to scrachbuild, so it and most of my buildings are just conversions and kitbashes of existing models/toys/etc.

Here's how it started out:



Vs the finished product.

Nice, especially considering the level of work you did on it. I like that it's useful in multiple ways. Models can climb on it, run through it, shoot through it, hide behind it, and in general interact with it in many ways. You could even let them get inside it if you were so inclined. Great piece!

With the current rules, that really should be a given, seeing as it has 2 entrances and each window would be a fire point. That would even allow your opponent to either
A) throw grenades through your windows
and/or
B) Destroy the entire occupied building!

A piece like this, in the sixth edition rules really gives the whole board new and exciting possibilities.

And to OP: I'm sorry, I missed the link in the first post. You've inspired me with your blog to stroll on down to the flea market and see if there is anyone hawking their kid's old toys.

You also say that you recommend "Chemical Plant kit from Pegasus/Technolog"
I can't find any place that sells it online. Would you happen to know such a place?

I mostly built this for Post-Apocalyptic games, and hadn't even thought about this, but I did pick up the 6ht edition rules. Thanks for the idea!

No worries. Technolog is the company in russia who makes it and sells it there, they also make Robogear. In the USA it's labeled and distributed by Pegasus hobby. In the UK it might have been distributed in the past by Urban Mammoth, but it doesn't appear to be anymore.

I'm not a fan of the kit built by itself, it looks a bit over the top to me. However, it is my absolute favorite for adding pipes and tanks to my projects and I heartily recommend it.

I'm not sure about in Norway, but in the states we usually order it from
Amazon.com http://www.amazon.com/Pegasus-Hobby-Chemical-Plant-Construction/dp/B000P8KDFO/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1357478492&sr=8-2-fkmr0&keywords=Pegasus+hobbies+terrain
or
Warstore http://www.thewarstore.com/IMEXPlatformerHexagon.html
Both sites also carry the Hexagon, Platformer, Gothic, Power Plant and other Pegasus Kits which also have good bits for detailing.

Thanks for the sites, much appreciated. If I had your piece, I'd even house-rule it so that the chimney is a firepoint that the inhabitants can't see anyone out of, to allow people to stand on the ceiling and drop down grenades
And I agree with you. They're awesome details on your house, but the sets build on their own look silly.
