This week, I began work on a project that I have been thinking about since I made a purchase on ebay. I bought a set of MDF walkways and decided that I would put together a large-scale fuel depo with them. I was also inspired by a page in the first Apocalypse book that showed you how to make some refinery-type storage containers from metal cans and cardboard.
I made up a rough plan in my head and got to work putting it into action.
I cut out some card the length and circumference of the food cans I had saved, and made a simple design on them, based on the Apocalypse guide.
|From delicious soup to interesting terrain.|
These were then glued to the cans (with some rubber bands to hold them in place until the glue dried.
Next up, I assembled the walkway in the configuration that I wanted to use.
Finally, I put everything together to see how it looked and raided my bits box for some suitable looking extras to add. These haven't been glued together yet, I just wanted to see how everything looked.
That's where I am at the moment. The next thing I want to do is to cut a base for the refinery. I picked up some plastic sheet with a grid pattern on it that I want to use to line the base and give it a more industrial look.
I really liked the MDF walkway. It looks good and was really easy to assemble. Once it is complete and based, it will make a nice centrepiece or objective for my games.
