Vinnie's Chemical Works is an homage piece to our friend Vince, whose recon-in-force website first documented some of our Zombietown Massacre games. It really is a simple building from a modelling point of view, but I wanted to talk a litte bit about it as it has some really nice features.
The molded tin-plate roof was really well sculpted, so I decided to just really paint the hell out of it to make it really shine. It was spray-painted with Testors Chrome and then Dull-Coated. Then it was washed with black to make it a really dull metallic gray. I then lined all the junctions with a wash of Poly Scale model railroad rust paint. In a few places here and there, I got out the Windsor-Newton Peat Brown ink and lined those junctions just a little more to make the whole roof just "pop".
The bottom floor has more of the same. All are painted with a kind of quickie rust technique:
Prime model with black
Dry-brush dark red brown
Dry-brush lighter with brown
Dry-brush edges with orange
Dry-brush extreme edges and worn spots with gunmetal or silver.
The top floor features some resin industrial machines picked up at a swap meet. There's also a small office here.
