Easy Command Post/Defense Turret
« on: 19 March 2022, 09:18:43 »
Found a pretty easy way to make a cool looking futuristic command post/large defense turret by taking the lid to a bottle of coffee creamer, painting it, and just putting a decal on it. Roughly Height 2, makes for a nice objective!
"But the nova cat paced steadily on,
Undisturbed by the petty battles...
its heart and mind devoted to
The Ways of Seeing, devoted to a more perfect life.”

Nice one. Any plans to remove glossy texture? Either with varnish, or metal spunge?

I would suggest some shallow drills to simulate direct hit from AC20, or artillery, than didn't penetrate. Yet.

Yeah, I've used a matt varnish to tone down the gloss. Love the idea of having a few shallow holes to simulate hits, maybe with some weathering and cracks around the edges too. Thanks for the great idea!
