would a hex shaped watertower make sense?...I mean the force of water would not be too forgiving against all these corners and edges...

the ruin looks amazing... I like how you arranged all these pictures...and how the snipers wait for their target...

the roof looks amazing... the tin sheeted style would never spring to my mind... didn´t see this here often... but it looks amazing!!!

and I am eager to see what you up for the next round...!

My first thought was a watchtower and that you hadn't got around to adding windows and a ladder.

Good shape whatever it is.

It won't ever be in the grim darkness guys. My clever plan to get Cam to make some Infinity terrain has worked to perfection. Mwahahaha.

Vik, you're next, freund von mir.

It reminds me of the water towers we have all around here, like this

Yeah, ditto positive reinforcement on the pipework, Cam. Looking good so far. Curious to know if it will have a balcony/catwalk like the one in Red's spoiler.

I think the gantry may be overpowering the rest slightly due to the smallish size of the piece. Maybe using a mesh floor would be the way to go.....


Edit....Yeah like vik said Obviously I spent too long staring at my screen, not only did vik ninja me, but Cam got his reply in too

Vik is dead on with the mesh. Last thing you need up that high is a surface for puddles or ice to form on.

Cool idea! a water tower terrain piece. I agree with the mesh walkway

Thank you guys, yup going with the mesh.

Cut out the perspex to form a frame...




Now to add mesh, only thing is not sure if my mesh will be strong enough. Looking at it and knowing it is bound for Infinity land, wondered if clear glass type surface might work, but will try mesh first.

The mesh is good. You are also scaring me with the speed at which this is coming along. Just sayin'. That style of catwalk/gantry adds a nice near future look to the piece. A very good thing

Hey mate.... sory for not popping my head in sooner..... that water tower is looking great! and 100% right idea to add the mesh walkway!

I really like the form of the water holding section also... the rule of cool definetly wins over RL physics!
