Put it on a base made of the same material, balsa wood by the look of it. Will make it more sturdy and easier to play with. Not to mention you can throw rubble on the ground around it for fun and effect!

For painting I'd suggest a mix of sand+paint for texture, or if you can locate it, the GW Roughcoat spray. GL!

It looks like Regal Blue with some Enchanted Blue highlights or drybrushing

Looks a bit dark for Regal, could it even be Midnight?

The building's clearly Imperial, so are you going to justify Tau weaponry via Tau occupation?

Wow nice job. My home-made terrain are stupid (possibly because I have no terrain-making stuff). If you compare that terrain with mine, mine will be like dog crap

Lol, who stole my cellphone! Anyway, the building looks awesome. Are you going to cut windows, by any chance? Fire Points are always nice. and how much did that cost, about?
