I have decided to share those pics after many pokes from club mates and family.
All of them are scratch builds, some of you may recognise fuel storage - it was published on those forums as background for Eldar army photo and one used to demostrate forumware evil drop pod in the past.
Hopefully those terrain pieces can inspire you.
Enjoy(:

My variation on original Censorium building (thx to Steel Crown Productions for the tournament price, those became components in this project):

There is some very nice stuff there, well executed builds.
That the Brigade Shapeways Tower?

Yes, truly nice! With all these nifty facade pieces hitting the market, I hope we'll see lots more of this.

Thx guys.
Those are old GW black spray can tops on 2mm Plasticard (etched with scribing tool), garnished in bitz and pieces from Plastruct, my favourite raw component source. I filled those can tops partially with cement filler from tube - Polyfila, great for adding weight to terrain pieces, so the gamers' excitement doesn't send them across the table :P
Also, not visible well on photo (I'm such an amateur pictographer:) - puddles and vertical streaks of superglue - as a '3d' base for rust streaks, will see how it shows after undercoating.

brilliant builds, what's the origin of the power plant cooling tower?

Stairs are from Plastruct, you can buy sheet of it and cut it to desired dimensions
Cooling tower is from Shapeways, costly but was exactly what this project needed.

I have been working on few versions of Manufactorum/Repair facility, have ton of pics from Google, etc, but need to be 100% happy with project before making it, if you have suggestions I can make it come to fruition. I have few preconceptions:
1. It needs to fit on 15cm tile
2. Broadly flat-roofed, eg like Tank Factory
3. Needs 2x chimneys (got pre-cut 1/2 inch coper pipes) but those can be modular add-on
4. Still hesitating on windows: tall gothic ones vs. 'Bauhaus'

I realise Wasteland is working on very nice buildings and I follow it closely, also there is damaged Factory thing on Shapeways.
I can sketch it if you need visuals.
Thanks

Excellent work!

Coincidentally I've just recently been perusing Plastruct's extensive pdf catalogue myself for the first time and thinking about conversion and terrain opportunities. They seem to do an excellent range of ladder, stairs, textures, ect. Are those 1:200 scale ladders you're using? I didn't think they did 1:300 ones.

Where are the industrially detailed fuel tanks from?

Excellent stuff!!

Please don't take this the wrong way but it all looks fairly achievable too - good ideas, good parts and well executed, nice paint job too.

You've definitely inspired me to have a go...

Alf, you nailed it, achievable, that's exactly what I wanted to convey(:

Fuel storage tanks come from my pre-Plastruct era so ladder was made from 2 sewing pins and small fragments of pins as steps in between... I know I'm mad but it's the happy type ;D Other ladders are indeed from Plastruct.
Fuel containers are scratch built from rolled and glued corrugated plasticard, then layer of standard printing paper, then another. To make 'rivets' I have near-punctured paper on the pre-measured spots from other side with compass, before gluing cut-out around corrugated card.
Whole model is based on photos of old Apocalypse book but gangways are broader to accommodate standard long EA infantry stands. Gangway step plates are made from old sieve :P

Thank you all guys for thumbs up, who knows, I may even restart soon my terribly neglected 'Tau terrain line'.
