Deadzone Tower Test Build

After playing around with the pieces from Mantic’s Deadzone Kickstart I wanted to build a simple structure I could paint and add to the “Generic Forms” section of my collection.  This is stuff going back to the original Necromunda where pieces were interconnecting structures that served no discernible purpose, generic equipment, ladders, and doorways.  Great stuff for representing a complex industrial area. While I like their concept that the Deadzone pieces are like Lego in that one can build and take apart structures as the scenario or mood dictates, reusing everything in new creations, I prefer to have more permanent stuff so I can paint and weather it.  I used the salt method to rust the tower up. I knocked the piece over just before I was about to spray the grey on.  This knocked off most of the salt so I had to reapply and wait before I could use the grey.  Make a note, salt is delicate before covered in paint.

Here it is with the second coat of salt applied.Here it is with the second coat of salt applied.
