Default Building ruin

This is my third ruined building I've made and is slightly better than the first 2 I've made (the second still needing a bit more paint before I ever think about posting it)

Yes its a bit plain : but I plan to add a touch more detail...and now for the pics

Awesome building mate! Although I believe you need some rubble around it. Unless somehow in fluff the building was made like that/it got vaporized by some really wierd weapon.

If only I played more 40k :-[

Okay, I see them now, hurray!
It looks pretty good, the uh 'archways' above the windows look good (what do you call them?), very gothlike.
Will there be ladders or staircases?

Ladder more than likely they are easier to make and don't require a lot of planning

And will those be GW ladders (Fantasy, I don't know if 40 K has those), or will you be building them yourself? Because my brother made a few himself, out of uh, 'satésticks'. Thin wooden sticks (like toothpicks, but longer) sometimes used for pieces of meat on a barbeque. The space between the 'steps' was big enough to put a infantry base in, so the miniatures could actually climb the ladder. Just an idea though...

Not bad at all! The texture you've put on there is great and the paint job is nicely done. Only thing I'd have done differently would have been to wreck the walls a bit. You have two perfectly good walls joined with no destruction to them really, so you'd have to wonder where the other 2 walls went, if you follow. It's like those last 2 walls just disappeared!

I've done a very similar building, the GW template right? Only difference is on mine the two joined walls end in a ragged wreck where other adjoining walls should be to indicate it got blown to hell. Oh yeah, and definitely toss some rubble strewn about in there.

Looks very good. As mentioned, go for some rubble (sprues work wonderfully) and I'd take your corners down at weird & jagged angles. It looks more destoyed that way. But the windows are awesome and the texture looks great.

Excellent work.

Yes, I did use the GW template the other two wall I left off for easy access for minis but I see what you mean. I will be painting up some rubble and adding it to the building.

The texture was done by using your glue future floor wax and sand recipe Farseer Emlyn

As for the ladders I'm either going to use some kabob sticks or some sprues
