The Doomsday Garage

Last night, I finished painting this post-apocalyptic gas station, which will serve as terrain for Villains & Vigilantes, Twilight: 2000, Fallout: Wasteland Warfare, and other games. 

Having finished the job, I'm not sure red and blue was the best colour scheme. But it looks decent enough on the table, and that's what counts; it's playable. 

Naturally there's no gas to be had here, but the building still makes a decent, if spartan, shelter. 

I may repaint the floor; the red is just too overpowering.

I can only imagine what dreams may come spending any length of time in a place that had blue walls and red floors. I'd probably solve Twin Peaks.

On the other hand, the blue makes for a decent underpainting if you went for earth tones or white/off-white, the traditional colour of service buildings.

There's a goofy scene in The Simpsons where they paint a building sky blue and then a helicopter flies into it. It sounds bad in writing, but I thought it was funny. In our real world, there's a sky-blue building belonging to the Elizabeth Fry Society that I travel by from time to time, and there's a helipad on the next block over... anyway, you can look it up and see for yourself.
