TTCombat: Distribution Center

After playing Shadow Run: Returned on PC I wanted a storage building. It'll be good for cyberpunk games and the modern games I play. The building will also double as a 'mall' for Last Days: Zombie Apocalypse. Like a mall it can give the same bonus: lots of space and a store room.

This kit is huge! Lots of nice mdf. It also comes with some interior details like a ramp, truck, shelves and palettes.

There's not a lot of words to put on he build, it's really straight forward. The only fiddly parts is the platforms on the inside.

As always when doing mdf terrain, I sort out the pieces and spray paint them before assembly. Leaving virtually no work after assemble, a bit of details to pick out and weathering. Spraying works well as the mdf will soak up the paint in places, it gives an uneven look to the flat surfaces - instant nuances.

Decided to add a bit of detail to the large wall areas, so found some 'generic storage sign' on Google. Perfect fitting as it had the same colors as I already went with for the building itself.

Also added some details to the inside, just prints on papers. Did searches for 'shipping manifest', 'wall clock', 'calander'.

I've used a lot of Army Painter quickshade varnish on the walls. Used in excess it'll look like grime.

One wall is completely without detail, so an added sign really gives a lot to the surface.

Dave never even clocked out when the apocalypse hit - he was pretty much a zombie back when he was alive.

One side of the warehouse. One ladder leading up to the walkway. The dumpster is a resin piece I got in a trade once.

The other side of the warehouse. The many different entrances does a lot for the buildings usefulness in gaming.

Thanks for looking
Cheers for checking out the blog. Let me know what you think in the comments or on Facebook or Instagram

The blog is written for my own pleasure and sense of hobby achievement. But I really value the interaction with other hobbyists. 


  1. Very cool! Wish I had the space for that.

    1. This is the biggest problem with this model. But I'm using it to store all my vehicles and containers. So the warehouse basically works as a box for a lot of other terrain.

  2. Just picked this up myself! Any change you could let me know the basic colors you used when you sprayed the parts - I'm very very new to actually painting terrain.

    1. Hi Jade.
      Sure thing I'll try. For this build I used:
      Cheap spray paint: grey, blue, black, red, metal.
      Acryllic paint for details: white and yellow.

      Process is: to through the instructions. Take out all parts as you go through it. Sort into piles for the color it's gonna be.

      Base coat it all on both sides.

      Bring in the piles amd start building.

      Very few place bthat doesn't need paint on both sides of the mdf. Front and back, triangle under the roof might be the only places.
