If that's supposed to be the base of the model, it's very, um, dull. If your looking for the City type effect, that's a good start, but it needs some rubble or texture to liven it up.

Just get a little GS, and sculpt a wrench, or just a smattering of rubble. Anything to break it up. I like it though... I'm difinately goping to try it!

thanks for the ideas. im probably going to add a GS wrench to it. also, i might add some chains on the floor to look like a work area (you know, having stuff on the floor). or possibly a gear or something of the sort.

on another note, i made a miliput cobble-stone road which i am probably going to put an SM or 2 on. the stones are big ( i am basing this off of stones in the ground from trips i have taken to ruins in Greece and Turkey and Italy). i also plan on adding some rubble to a lowered area on the base. as of now, my camera is charging so until i can get it off of the charger and take some pics, you will be left with the description.

Defiantly add some tools and things... Maybe a big, mysterious box/radio thing with lots of cables coming out of it.
