Terrain and Scenery - Sector Mechanicus - Galvanic Magnavent
Hi, welcome and thanks for dropping by. So, with the re-release of the Imperial Knights Renegade game I thought as before I would crack out the scenery before attempting the Knights. The previous Sanctum Imperialis can be seen HERE.
As usual I based the scenery on 3mm Hardboard (Fiberboard) and added the sand and PVA, the Galvanic Magnavent was put in the middle of the gantry so Tech-Adepts can service and monitor the machine spirit.
I used tape to mask off the guard rails and painted hazard stripes, initially on two panels but I liked it so much, I did every panel. I added a ladder for access and the kit comes with various chains / pulley / cranes / pipes etc.
Gotta love the skull head davit crane thing of the 41st Millennium... You can also see the centre Magnavent is washed with the magic Lahriam Fluid with 2 drops of Mournfang Brown wash mix, for a rusty aged look.
The gantry itself was a simple black undercoat, drybrushed Leadblecher and Trollslayer Orange, similar to my previous Mechanicus themed terrain pieces. I added a rock to the base for interest, the base was marked out where the gantry and vent sat, then painted and sand/PVA applied etc separate from the building, for ease of detailing the underside etc.
I weathered the fan assemblies and hazard stripes with Agrax Earthshade over the Tau Sept Ochre base.
I painted the Magnavent main chamber to add some colour and a few pipes and wires for interest.
I even picked out a number of the indicator glass valves, whilst the crane derrick skull was given a different glaze to the gantry to show the functionality.
Each guardrail had the Mechanicus Symbol picked out in black and white and Leadbelcher, with the numeral plaque in brass.
The walkway had a simple drybrush with a few cog symbols picked out, functional colour scheme.
The exhaust apparatus was given a soot finish and here you can see the surface area, plenty of room for entire squads to get a good view of the battlefield from up here.
The main Magnavent Control Panel received some detailing.
And even in the 41st Millennium its nice to see some Health and Safety at Work firefighting equipment, a nice extinguisher. That will help when you stand in the fan assembly on the deck treads and lose a foot...
Hope you like this new addition and see how simple and effective a drybrush finish over this terrain can be. Cheers for stopping by, thanks, Siph. (5 points - Scenery)
