Default Ruined Roadway (pics) Yay or Nay?

ok, i was watching terminator 2 judgement day, and in one of the future scenes there is the remains of an L.A. motorway. i thought, hey! wouldn't that be an awesome piece of scenery for 40k, so i set off to build one.

here are a few pics of what i've built. its half painted and although i'm quite happy with the building per se i'm worried about the painting of it all.






what does everybody think. and are there any suggestions for painting the actual road without using the same grays?

It looks pretty good, really, impressed by the detail on the broken edges of the roads.
Where would the models fight though? Because the slanted road is a bit difficult to use, or will it be below, 'in the rubble', where the armies would fight?

the troops are really meant to fight in the rubble underneath, but i kinda turned out to more of a mass of cover. kinda a good place to hold, might make for some interesting CC. but the top is really exposed as well.


but thanks for commenting, and i'm glad you like it

Looks like the scene from new Die Hard ^_^.

Yay or nay? ...

DUDE YAY with both hands! Its kick ass. May be a bit more paint hear and there but DUDE its IMPRESSIVE.

I can't judge scale but if scale is right -> well then you just absolutely nailed it!

Impressive work.

This looks great. I had something similar in mind for my CoD board but haven't gotten around to adding anything new to that board in quite awhile. Anyway, I would paint the asphalt with a mix of Shadow Grey and Chaos Black. Just drybrush lightly on the road to give it some subtle highlights but leave it black enough to still look like asphalt. Similar to this.

I personally like them quite a bit. Would you happen to have used some pictures of another member's work from this site to do them, or did you get the directions somewhere else? 'cause I remember seeing these a while back too.

Terrific Job! I like the overall effects of destruction. Not a bad paint job either.

thnx all.

esspecially 99 skulls. i was really stumped with the road. i'll give that a go, cheers

heres a picture or two of the road with a few models on it so you can veiw the scale. i'm not sure if its spot on but it seems ok to me.





about the inspiration. all the planning for the building etc. was mine, though i can't remmember where the idea began to form. it reminded me of Judgement day, but it is quite possible that i saw something similar and subconciously kept it. it depends how long ago the post was. maybe a month or two and i might have seen it. :-\

about a tutorial. i'll think about it, but some of my building was haphazard. i'll need to really run over the model to remember how i did it. :-\

overall thank you very much for your positive response.

modified becuase danger couldn't see the pics
