Large Ruined Factory For Crossfire – Now Painted

After some discussion of How to Use a Big Ruined Factory Feature For Crossfire I’ve gone ahead and painted it. Actually it comprises the two ruined factory features from Wargames Tournaments and a lot of rubble that I added.

The ruined factory

I put each of the two features on a 180mm x 180mm base board. Although the shell of the building is from Wargames Tournaments I added some walls and a lot of rubble within. Some of the walls extend into the upper floors. Most of the rubble is on the ground floor although I put a bit on upper floors.

I used the rubble to delineate the internal rooms. This should be obvious from the photo of configuration a (I explain the various configurations below).

Room configuration

In the earlier post I asked for advice on how to organise the rooms within the factory. I’ve gone for two room sizes, 120mm x 60mm and 90mm x 60mm. The room schematic is as follows:

These two features give me a few possible layouts for the two features in combination.

Other buildings

I’ve been quite active recently. At least I’ve assembled and/or painted quite a lot of buildings. Many ruined.

    Very nice! Catches the feel well, and easily playable.

    Magnificent result! A nice balance of aesthetics and Crossfire requirements.

  • A great centrepiece feature for a battle. I have scratch built a similar styled but more modest affair. The slight pinkishness of the rubble is very realistic, as I understand it. What is the rubble actually made from?

    Thanks everybody for the nice words.

    The rubble is a mix of chopped up 5mm foam core, left over bits from the MDF kits, broken bits of the sprues of the MDF kits, smashed up brick,small rocks, wood putty, and sand. Maybe other stuff too.

    @Aidan, I’ve turned on Jetpack comments. Thanks for the suggestion. I hope my spam count doesn’t go up.

    By the way, making ruins is great fun for all the family. My 8 year old and 3 year old daughters both helped with the structures above. “Here is a bit of rubble. Glue it anywhere you like.” 🙂
