Third City Section Done.

Third section completed, an industrial unit this time.

You can see what the security fencing was for now.

Should be a good location to make a stand, if the fences hold and they can park a vehicle across the entrance.

The entrance barrier pivots on a small length of brass rod, the rest of it is plasticard.

The roller shutters are just corrugated card, simple but I think effective.

Wooden shapes and cocktail sticks for the geothermal units here.

A perfect example of why you shouldn't order your security fencing from the cheapest supplier...

The fourth section has all the buildings painted and glued in place, I just need to finish the basing and make a couple of signs. :)

Second City Section Finished

I completed the second section of my Sci-fi city, this one contains the city guard post and a holodrome.

I'm very pleased with how this is turning out, I think it has a sort of Wild West feel to it. I may add bank robberies and gun fights to my possible future scenarios (sounds like a job for 5Core). :)

Security Fencing 2

I painted up a few sections to see how they looked.

There is magnetic sheet under the sections and the base board has steel paper to match up with them.

Now I just need to do the required number of sections and some destroyed ones.

Security Fencing

An attempt at security fencing.

The base is thick plasticard, the uprights are brass rod and the fencing is mesh fabric.  The base will be painted to represent concrete and the rest will be done as steel.  I need lots of straight sections, a few corner sections and some destroyed sections of both to swap in if they get burst through.

It's a good way to pass the time as I wait for my new dice to be delivered and for other things I'm making to dry. :)

First City Section Completed

I completed the first section of my Sci-fi city, work on the second is progressing well.

The terrain tile is 30cm square.

Ami and her staff defend the bar.

Corporate security take cover in an adjacent building.

The City Guard prepare to fight.

Zombies emerge from between the buildings.

I need to paint more zombie figures.

Three more tiles and I can have a game. :)

Ami's Bar

A drinking spot for my Sci-Fi town.

No mould for this one, just a one off model.

I'm pleased with how the bar sign looks, I did briefly consider making a neon sign but decided it was beyond my ability.  Bending all that brass rod to make the letters then trying to paint it to look like a neon light?  Way too hard for me.

The town is going to be based on 12" squares, and I now have the buildings I need to make the first one. :)

Sci-Fi Buildings

I started work on producing Sci-Fi buildings to go with 15mm figures.  The intention is to eventually be able to stage city fights.  I went with a flat roof for ease of positioning figures and the concept of the initial building is a small prefabricated concrete dwelling.

It was made from plastic card with cocktail stick piping and Green Stuff used for the utility box on the side of the building and for the curve in the water pipes to the roof.

Of course, one building isn't enough.  So I made a mould and cast some more in resin plaster. :)

I need to make a lot more building types to complete this project, but it's a good start I think. :)
