a back view of the new Generator. The three dust fans are from
an HO Train accessory pack (I gotta find more of those things). The
horizontal tank is from a Russian tank kit. The vertical pipes are
another piece from the Armorcast
line of industrial scenery. The cupola was part of the original filtration
unit- I just glued a base plate on the inside so minis could stand in there,
plus some detail around the lip from a rubber tank tread.
The big vent is the bottom of a foot from a Zoid toy. The open areas at the base are part of the original filter case, I just put some screening in the back and some perforated metal on the floor from a car air filter (the smaller grid is cross stitch grid available in craft stores). The box added to the side is from a Matchbox Mega Rig toy, most of which is going into making Space Hulk terrain. the rivets on top of the box were added, more of those 1/16" hole punch rivets, thank you! More fine detail from tank kits and Zoid toys can be seen throughout.
The entire piece was painted like all my other industrial terrain (I was afraid of experimenting on a cool piece like this). Primed in black, drybrushed green, then bits drybrushed with grey, red, or metallics to make them stand out. And of course, rust washes- two colors this time to add more depth (the leather color and the light brown color). As you can see, the piece is a natural gaming piece, with loads of places to stand, and plenty of cover to hide in / behind / under.
