Weird Science Roman Factory

As I've been putting together the weird science Romans game, I realized that I had all these machines but my landscape was entirely conventional. I wanted to add something to the landscape to give an impression of the "industrial revolution" that had occurred. I decided on creating a factory complex that would provide this as well as give an objective to fight over.

I used two 3-d wooden puzzles of water wheels that I purchased from Amazon for about $6 each.

I placed them together and added a couple of scratch-built chimneys and a windmill. Viola, a Roman factory. I have only a vague idea of what is actually manufacturer here, some kind of foundry, maybe steam engines?
