GB 52: Defensive Trenches Complete!

Post by Peregrin » Fri Dec 27, 2013 1:23 am

I thought I already posted this but it must not have gone through:

Here's what I started with (although I didn't end up using the carved hilly bits on the left):

And here's some of the progress I made today:

Added the Infinity miniature for scale, as it will most likely be used for that game first.

I like the texturing and the corrugated steel sides of the trenches.

Just corrugated paper I found at Great Canadian Dollar Store.
The supports are from a plastic sprue that was laying around.

I was thinking about the sprues for supports for corrugated paper, too.

All the entries look great this month.

Progress on some of the details, and I've created a dugout bunker for the rear edge.

Looking good. It appears that you might be using regular Styrofoam and pink foam. Which do you like working with best?

The compressed styrofoam (pink in this case) is much better, but not as readily available, and I'm cheap. :D

The camera flash gave the the gloss on the mud a bit of an amber effect so here's a shot without the flash (which dulls the rock textures a bit... can't seem to get a happy medium. Must need more room lights):
