Hey guys, today I want to show you the three Manucfactorum structures I painted for my urban display board. Find out more after the jump.
This one is the largest structure. I imagine this is an Administratum building or the workspace of a Techpriest. Thus I chose the wall pieces with the large Cog Mechanicum icons and added some regal looking pieces like balustrades and struts from the Basilica Administratum.
If you wonder how I painted this piece, check out the tutorial I’ve written a while ago.
This is the second piece. It’s only one storey and more simple in it’s appearance, I imagine it is part of a large work hall. I inverted the paint scheme for more variety.
The bases were created from foamcore and textured plasticard. Find out more here.
This is the third piece. It could be combined with the second structure to form another part of the work hall.
All three terrain pieces have been created with just a single Manufactorum box. I only added two more broken wall pieces, one or two balustrades and the struts from the Basilica Administratum.
Together with the Promethium Pipelines and the Gothic Craters I bought from Gale Force 9 I now have quite a sizable terrain collection for my display board. I guess I could build some smaller rubble pieces with the leftover bitz I have, but at the moment I want to concentrate my attention on painting models once again.
How do you like my Manufactorum pieces and display board? Tell me in the comments 🙂

Nice, simple, and effective terrain. I especially like the backdrop you've been featuring. Just today I was talking to my wife, who is a canvas painter, and telling her I'd like a backdrop like that, then lo and behold what pops up in my updates, today's fantastic blog with pictures to show her something very close to what I'd like.
That's the good. Sadly, I've got something bad to say. My ISP's built in security feature has started blocking this blog. I noticed it a few weeks ago, thinking it might be a bug that they will fix, but after talking to them, apparently it's something embedded in the blog template. Not sure what it is, and they wouldn't elaborate, but thought I should let you guys know so that you can check it out and maybe fix it if you are so inclined. To give you a time frame, this started happening about 4 to 6 weeks ago, in case you made some updates back then.
Cheers! I look forward to seeing more!
Thanks Hivemind for letting us now, unfortunately I don't have a clue. We didn't change anything in the blog template recently.

Glad to help, Stahly. Ok. I've been tinkering with the settings of my protection software, and it appears to be an embedded Malware, if that helps. It doesn't give any more details than that though, sorry to say.
Thinking about it, it may not be something you changed, but a third party add on that has been red-flagged. Maybe one of your add ons has been auto updated recently by its creator and is now causing the problem. In the meantime I just open the blog in "sandbox" and disable all the extra stuff.

Thanks a lot, we appreciate any help to continue and grow Tale of Painters 🙂
Looking good especially since it was made pretty mych from one box. The only thing I'd humbly suggest is adding a bit more contrast to the black wall sections, maybe paint the door in the red or the fan housings, I think it may make them 'pop' a bit more.
I did wonder wether you were going to base your pipes in the same way maybe with strips of the textured plasticard you used for the flooring in the buildings to show there maybe more beneath the ground going on? You could add maybe a small work area around one of the controls using bits off the building sprues as extra cover.
keep up the cool work its definitely paying off 🙂
