One of the key portions to building terrain, for me anyways, is thrift stores and bits and pieces from an inexpensive kit called the “Platformer Contstruction Set”  The results are as follows;

Each one happens to be attached to a cardboard base, generally I try to find reasons not to use cardboard due to it’s warping problems, but these are small enough that it shouldn’t be an issue.

The pieces are a combonation of PVC pipes that were obtained for $2 at a local Thrift Store.  The rest of the bits come from the aforementioned model kit.  The results are a Sci-Fi looking above ground structures that will provide various hiding places for your gang in Necromunda or whatever other Sci-Fi game you come across.

The next stage was pretty straight forward.  I primed everything black and began painting. I used the following colors: boltgun metal, bronze, brass, and mythril silver.  All drybrushing on all of those pieces.  Here are the results;

In the end we now have some ground-level terrain that isn’t a “Ruin” or something that’s broken.  These structures were built in tact and act as a great addition to our existing Sci-Fi terrain.
