Default Some Cityfight Terrain ( WIP )

Well, heres a piece of terain I made from a little while ago, and I decided to post it up. This is a work in progress that still needs to be painted.

Sorry for the bad picture quality, these were taken in a hurry. As always, C & C is welcome.

I believe that the hole for the turret should have some more scarring and there should all arouynd be more battle-damage to the tank, but I believe it is shapoing up to be an awesome piece ;D

Well, I completely forgot about battle damage. Thanks for reminding me. I had intended for this piece to be game objective of some sort.

If your going to use it as an objective piece, you definately need some battle-damage!

Nice, but I think the sprue rubble looks too much like cut up sprue. You should have cut it into smaller pieces and roughened them up somehow, and maybe mixed it with stones, etc. If you add some sand to the rubble piles, and some more, "rubble style", sprue pieces, it will look more natural.

I agree one thing I found that helps with sprue rubble is to use hot glue make a good blob with your hot glue stick your sprue rubble in as some odd but natural angels let dry then use PVA glue and sprinkle sand and other small rocks and such for a ruined rubble pile look

I think it looks great. Bits of wires mixed in with some gravelly-glue-water brushed onto the rubble piles will even it out and roughen up the sprue-look. Once you paint it, it'll come together. My rubble piles always looked like cut-aways and sprues until I textured it and painted it.

I love the busted tank. I don't know that I could ever bust a tank like that for terrain, but it looks damn cool.

The only way that I could manage to get rid of a tank like that was it got in a bad accident at a local tournament a while ago. It was one of those kid in a hobby shop stories. It was painted up nicely and it was dropped and broken so it looked pretty ruff. I put if back together and never painted it again so when I started this piece of terrain I thought that it would be perfect.
