Last week I shared some photos of Armorcast’s “Short” Sci-Fi Walls that I picked up during the ’90s. This time it’s the “High Tech Walls” from the same era. Back in the day they had three sets, all of which I picked up, and even got them painted! You might have spotted them in the background of the previous two “Army so far” posts.
Once again, these were painted in a quick and dirty manner back in the day, and could probably use a bit of a touch-up today using some of my more modern techniques and materials. Some more detailing, a bit of a wash, edge highlight, some powders, etc. Tone down the coloured metallics a little and make a few more bits pop a little more.
Obviously, these are perfect for games like Necromunda, Shadow War Armageddon (aka Necromunda V2) and of course – 40k. As well as many other sci-fi and post-apoc games. Given their low-end-high-tech look, they wouldn’t look out of place for DUST, Konflikt ’47 or This Is Not A Test/Fallout.
I think the random transfers I used throughout these sets of walls also improves their look a fair bit over the simple paint I applied. While these are no showcase models, either in terms of their sculpts or my rather basic paintjob of the 1990’s, even like this they look good on the table, particularly when paired with other complimentary scenery pieces. Perhaps I’ll buy some more?
Oh, and here’s a scale shot of these walls along with the Short Sci-Fi walls.
