Default First Attempt at Buildings (Plenty of Pics)

These are 2 buildings I made for my Cities of Death board so wanted to post them and get some feedback.

















The first building I was aiming for completely ruined, so it's more textured. The second building I was aiming a bit more for concrete still in decent shape but definietely weather worn and slightly textured.

Pretty nice dude. However, they would look even better if you could add some random rubble bits. You can use chopped up old sprued and some random guns and the like from your bits box, really easy and makes it look much better.

True enough. I haven't gotten to detailing them out just yet, but I do plan to. The building with the large corner piece I want to add a sign to, and I do plan to toss in some rubble and stuff for that full effect. I had just gotten done the painting process and figured I'd solicit some feedback on them while it's still easy to do touchups or additions.

Thanks for peeking at them.

It's nice, but you could add some rubble, cracks or stains in the walls, some random grass...

Nicely done, perhaps some more detail? Dead Guardsmen, Rubble, Debris etc...

I like them both. The tower on the second one is interesting, and should make for some fun gaming.

You could use a bit of rubble to liven them up a little though. Maybe just some sand scattered into the corners and against the walls? Or, go to town with large chunks of stuff lying around.

Right now it just looks as though the janitors have come through and cleaned up to place, removing all debris and leaving just the solid chunks behind.

I've done more detailing just been too lazy to get more pics and upload them. I've learned a lesson though, do the things like rubble and stuff before you paint the whole thing...makes life easier. Live and learn.
