The next step was to glue the plastic sheets cut from the biscuit trays on top of the foam-wire-tubing-layer. Again using styro-foam glue so I would not dissolve the insulation foam. After the glue had dried I cut the foam and plastic sheeting off in jagged rims around the outside of the plastic bases diameter.

I intend to have the basing material overhang the actual base, making it look like the ground has been ripped up together with  the figure that will be standing on it.

The bases were then sprayed black and given a gunmetal dry-brush. I then washed them with Citadell Agrax Earthshade and painted the cables and pipes different colours. I also highlighted the very edges with a brighter metal colour to make it look like they had been freshly torn

On the whole I want all the plumbing to look rather cleaner than the deck plating. Not only to make it stand out, but also because it has been sealed away for millenia while the plating above was befouled by all manner of xenos and warp spawn.
