Well I've been building like crazy. Have quite a few buildings done. All habitation style. i was wondering if any of y ou scenery Guru's had some easy templates, or materials list, what not for Buildings or Urban scenery pieces that might not be the standard building style?
Water Pumps, Technical or Utility buildings? Anything at all I can use? Simpel is great, so is fast and easy as I can embellish upon the designs. Any info or direction will be appreciated.
For odd thiings like water pumping stations go to your nearest DIY store and have a look at the plumbing section. Have a look at some water tank valve kits, they are crammed with interesting looking bits and pieces that, when combined with the usual materials, will make an excellant water pumping facility. Things like 'L' section pipes, 1 way valves... loads of other interesting bits.
I have found that using Aluminum cans (like the ones you get veggies in) and popcicle sticks is great for modeling prometheum refineries and holding tanks, even water towers and and the like. PVC and plumbing pipes and tubes are also great for refineries.
As a base for a structure, I've found that using the plastic packaging (not the styrofoam) for ground beef is great when flipped upside down. It has ribbing on the side that kinda mimics buttresses and such, very gothic.
Combine a couple of these ideas, plus a couple of boxy carboard-built buildings and youve got yourself an Imperial Refinery.
go there and buy old toys, that's the best. Old Gasoline-trucks and other such "buildinish" toys. I go to a flea-market each sunday and buy lots of such things very very cheap. All I need to do is to connect the bits and pieces to one and other, spray it black and paint away.
Add some bits for added 40K-feeling, tubings etc. It adds quite some flavour to add some wooden details too I've noticed.
