Apex humongous was not happy. Profits were down, the demand was there as always but unfortunately for him and his crew their supply didn't meet it. Something was wrong one of their biggest customers had gone elsewhere and yet the supply seemed no better then before..... and who were those crazy voodoo dolls getting there h2o from anyway?
I've been working up the weathering effects for my boards
Trying to keep a muted subdued colour scheme while showing off all the fantastic detail.
These are base coated drybrushed shadow grey then given a paint wash of cheap burnt umber and black acrilic which was wiped of with a sponge .
Adding a few rust effect patches here and there stippling burnt umber and then solar mecharious orange along with some metallic highlights.
And some carefull application of weathering powder. I mix this with water when it's applied it at first appears quite opaque and harsh but once dried can still be blended out and manipulated.
I'm experimenting with using soft pastles to edge hilight it's quick and easy not sure how it will hold up to handling but I don't think I'll mind if it smudges it will just add to the effect.
Welcome to the pumphouse.
Finaly settled at this for a layout as I think it gives a good balance of hight, cover and open space.
Some of the large open areas have prices of scater terrain to break up fire lanes.
I've used a very subdued colour scheme and added very little detail other than the rust effects. My hope is that this will make our miniatures really pop in the games.
I'm aiming to create a claustrophobic enclosed industrial clutter, while still allowing big clumsy hands access to all the nooks and crannies.
The platforms break at the joints of the boards and can be swapped or rotated and mixed in with all Gary's boards
I created gaps just wide enough to risk jumping across as a short cut....
Again all the pipes are moveable to switch things up a bit.
The barrels and boxes are glued in clumps as I think they look better 'posed' these ones are from Mantic.
I've had an absolute blast creating this character terrain and am already starting more! Although I'm still not calling this done it is certainly game ready. But for now the janitor and his clean-up crew need some attention.
Rumour has it some misguided fools have been drawing h2o without paying....humongus ain't gonna let that stand..... I pitty the fool!
