Posted on April 16th, 2018 under , . Posted by

I’ve finally got this Chemical Plant off my paint station and into my terrain collection for This is Not a Test. The paint job isn’t quite a good as I’d like, but I’m honestly just happy it’s finished. It is a reasonably large terrain piece and covers a good amount of the table, as well […]
