Default Cities of Death Building UPDATE: Painted

hey everyone, i just finished building/modeling one of my cities of death buildings. It does however still need to be painted.

Here are some pictures for you to comment/criticise, beware low band server things, they're very high resolution, something like two to three megs each.













and by the way, if anyone knows an effective way to make rural looking ladders i would be very grateful.

That is the most ruined looking ruin I have ever seen (meant as a compliment)
I hope you will show us when it is painted.

Looks good, very gothic-y and a nice use of spare sprue. I prefer using foam for my buildings though, since I don't like the way the corrugations look. They look excellent though, and the buttresses are a nice touch.

Yep, probably the best part about it! Spare cardboard box from the basement, chopped up extra sprue stuff, and a couple things from my bits box.

And by the way, i think i figured out how to make the ladders. I originally tried using toothpicks but they weren't tall enough to reach the next level, so I'm going to use kabob skewers. Just make the sides square, make them the right length, and attach some toothpicks in between. I'll post some more pictures when it has ladders/sprayed/painting process.

That looks like a ruined rickety wreck full of dangerous rubble and ready to collapse.

In other words its a perfect Cities of Death building! Great job, it looks awesome, excellent work.

If you mean the corrugation in the cardboard, i'm leaving it. Actually, i used cardboard instead of foam or the like for the very reason of the corrugation. IMO makes the building look more like a building. If you blew off part of a wall it wouldn't be perfectly flat. Theres insulation, supports, and the like inside of it.
