Group Build 34: More random ruins

Postby A Luna » Wed Apr 18, 2012 4:33 pm

More random ruins!
Got more pictures on my cellphone. Long story short: no batteries for real camera. Had to use cellphone for WIP shots. Cellphone cable to computer is missing in action.


Enjoy the easy terrain:

Nice dude! That's not white styro is it? Looks sort of like that spongy material...

What did you use for the leaves, they look great!

It is white styro. It just melted down more than I thought. Guess that glue didn't really help that much.

The leaves.. I don't know what brand, but it's actual modelling leaves, nothing fancy. Pre-bought.

@Ironclad:
I sprayed the white foam with scenic cement (watered down pva glue) to hope the spray paint wouldn't eat it away. Sadly it did eat it away, but not in a large amount.

@balangaz:
Thank you! Although I did get a small step closer to getting cancer this way. I really don't recommend doing it.
Smile!

Here some WIP shots from my phone. Finally got the cable :D

1. cut our foam and place on CD.
Image

2. Regret what you did and tear 'em off. Glue some relief paper on the base and hope that it shows for a nice pattern after painting.
Image

3. Use too much glue
Image

4. Enjoy the view like my dog
Image

5. spray paint with scenic cement and hope the spray paint wont eat the foam.
6. go insane as the spray paint DOES eat away the foam and inhale toxic gasses ( :( )
7. decide 'heck with it' and spray paint some more with:
- olive green
- grey
- skeleton bone
- white
8. Balance on leg.

Image

9. Give it a wash. Watch in disgust again as the wash isn't doing what you want.
10. Drybrush and decide that if it doesn't look the way you wanted, it can still look nice.

Smile!
