Wargame-model-mods - Tubular buildings

This is an in depth look at the attachment point on the tubular buildings kickstarter.

Example board using the buildings from the tubular buildings kickstarter.
It features 5 of the commercial building and a bunch of the stretch goals and add-ons to make a very good table.
The addition of all the add-ons really break up the board and blocks line of sight across much of the map.
Several of the picture feature some 28mm models to show scale

Use of these attachment points can make your building your own by changing the shape of it, adding additional detail, connecting them together.

Many of the different building have one or more attachment point. There are two types one for pipes and a loading door version.

The pipe version has three different sets so far a Service line, a flare stack and a pack of power cores + water tanks

The loading door attachments currently have the Landing pad, and a set of detail attachments

These sets can really change the dynamic of a building for example adding a landing pad and pipeline suddenly gives you a vantage point for troops to fire from and the pipeline snakes around the table top creating nooks and tight spaces for you troops all while blocking line of sight.

Adding some of the detail sets or water tanks change your building outline making it better at blocking line of sight and more interactive as you can weave in and out of the different sections.

Adding the flare stack again gives you some very high vantage points, the flare stack can be joined onto the Ammo dump, Smoke stacks and Quad silos using the bridges,  your building could find itself at the centre of a maze between a maze of gangways.
