|(Even a "wretched hive of scum and villainy" needs to get its power from somewhere)|
Up until I caught a cold several days ago, I've been slowly chipping-away at my pile of figures, buildings and terrain pieces.
Just before I came down with my cold I managed to finish four sets of buildings.
The first here is a 6mm (millimeter, or 1/285th scale) resin power station made by Monday Knight Productions, which I bought during my "fly-by" at this year's Enfilade!

I painted the structure several shades of grey--just not 50 of them--along with a few additional colors for highlighting doorways and windows. I added what little I had left of my Ash Waste Flock from Gale Force Nine, to add some texture to the base. To highlight the stonework on the building, I applied a brown wash.
I chose brown, because being a novice at this, I'm still having trouble applying black. Every time I've applied black, I end up turning the entire figure black.
So I didn't want to take a chance with my power station.

While the good folks at Monday Knight call this a power station, who's to say this can't substitute for something else, like the DSS-02 shield generator used by the "rebel scum" on Hoth.
The trick for the owning players will be to keep the facility from meeting the same fate...
