Water Tower

Tonight, I build terrain!

I've nearly run out of basswood strips to finish covering an old coffee can and transforming it into a water tower for the various miniature games I play.

I plan on painting it an old weathered, grey wood with a metal band around the top, bottom and middle. You can't quite tell in the photo, but added some notches to help break up the planks.

A structure like a water tower can be used for just about any game set 1860 through a dystopian future. It wouldn't look out of place in Warhammer 40k, Warzone, Wild West Exodus, or even a fantasy setting like Hoardes, Warmachine or WHFB.

I plan on donating this, a few other buildings I'm making to my local game store to help replenish their stock of terrain that gets abused and/or stolen on a regular basis.
