Industrial container and cottage/shed

A couple of buildings here: industrial gas/liquid container and a more rustic cottage/shed sort of thing. Window made from granny grating, roof from a styrene roof facsimile I bought years ago, ladder rungs from a staple.

Corner ruins

This has been a busy year. The job is going well. The wargaming club is very nice, as are the folks. Sadly, the time available for blogging is commensurately diminished. I'd apologise, as I have in the past, but I'm not Superman. There are only so many hours in the day. Enjoy these pictures of some corner ruins I created back in January, apparently. Foamcore construction with (I hope) obvious extra bits. Any queries, just comment. :)

Model Memorial

I think this is a Great War minischap. Standing at attention like that, he just seemed perfect for a statue, and so that is what he has become. The stone here is rather rougher than it would be on a statue in real life, but it works for me. Halford's grey is the undercoat. It then received a bit of drybrushing with lighter greys, then a sepia wash and a green wash in some spots. Lastly, some Ushabti Bone as a final drybrush and to create the writing on the front of the memorial finished it off.

Perhaps I'm oddly sensitive, but it strikes me as a rather sad, sombre piece.

Ruined statue

I bought this touristy damaged statue a long time ago in Greece. I can't recall who it's supposed to represent, but underneath, it's metal on a marble base. I daubed a mess of filler and sand atop the metal to obscure both the detail and mould lines. I then hit it with some creams, greeny-yellows, greys and browns. It's large enough for individuals to hide behind, as you can see, and would work well for anything Pulp-based. I can see this chap as the forgotten leader of the Atlanteans or whatnot.
