Some More Terrain for Legion

Quite a while ago I bought this 3D printed tower on EBay for Star Wars: Legion and it sat on my workbench staring at me ever since as I wasn't sure what to do with it.

It's quite basic design with a lot of flat surfaces, and the printing wasn't the best quality. So I had to have several sessions of sandpapering the printing lines smooth. After attacking it with plenty of sandpaper it was done and I started the pretty simple job of painting it.

Once painted, I inkwashed the tower in oil paints thinned with turpentine and then I used Flory washes to weather the panels with streaks. I also added weathering powders in various areas to add a bit of texture to the piece. To give you an idea of the size of the tower, here it is with some Stormtroopers for scale:

I also had to make a small platform for the interior, which I made from a circle of plasticard with textured plasticard glued on top and painted and weathered. I also added some copper wire to make hand rails around the upper platform. as you can see, two figures can comfortably stand on the upper level.

Whilst in a terrain making mode, I quickly made a crashed speederbike piece from a spare bike that I had bought online and had turned up with most of the pieces missing. Rather than having the faff of sending it back, I thought I'd use it for something else.

After making the missing parts out of plasticard, I converted the rider as though he has tumbled off, bent the steering vanes and drilled a couple of blaster holes in the body. It's a pretty simple objective/casualty marker.

So, there's a little bit more scenery added to my Legion collection, hopefully they will look good in games!
