A couple of easy-ish models from Dropzone Commander completed this Wednesday. First up was the sister Shackleton Escape Pod.

With my 80’s Transformers fix out of the way for Dropzone, I turn to another fixture from my youth: He-Man. I was trying to decide a color scheme for my Rakkon Krell command walker and thought maybe I could try out a little Battle Cat theme. I really enjoyed painting up my Walking Dead All Out War tiger so hopefully this wouldn’t be too difficult.
As I was building my first ruined building for Dropzone Commander, I was also looking to do something with the set of Shackleton Escape Pods I picked up. Looking closer at the building wreckage, it looked like something pretty epic struck the side of the building but what could have collapsed that part of the building so completely?
In an effort to vary some of my Dropzone Commander terrain, I recently picked up a set of mdf buildings from Empires at War. I usually wouldn’t waste time on more buildings because the paper terrain versions work well for me but these are nice in that they feature destroyed buildings with multiple floors. I spent the weekend getting one of the kits out and seeing what all I could do with it.
I used the rest of the week to wrap up my Dropzone Commander Monorail kit, focusing lastly on the bases. I didn’t really want to free hand some general ruined concrete but I also know that I didn’t want to leave them plain even though the product image has them that way. I turned to my ruinscape terrain tiles for the solution.
I had some more time so I decided to finish up the rest of the Dropzone Commander Monorail scenery pack. I decided to keep it in the muted tones I found in a recolored vintage image of art deco trains from the early twentieth century. This meant keeping the gunmetal primer as a base and customizing my red into a dark mauve.
