So, having a long weekend allowed me to not only complete a longstanding goal of basing some terrain, but also allowed me to engage in an entirely new endeavor.
I bring you, the Inquisitorial Dark Column of Grimness:
|This is a column, as it doesn't support a roof. If it did, it would be a pillar. But how did this awesome artifact come to be? |
|I picked this out of someone's trash. Seriously, they were just throwing it away. The fools.|
|For more detail, I sculpted a robot eyeball and an intricate "I" - hey that's two eyes! - out of plasticard and, oddly enough, a split pea (from a bag of split peas for soup . . . . seriously!).|
|One can of $.99 black spray paint later, and it starts to come together.|
|I had also added some Aquilas and skull bits. Little details add a lot - no need to get carried away.|
|And, several layers of dry brushing later . . .|
|With Rogue Trader era Space Marine for scale . . .|
|Currently propping up a Sideshow Scale Marine, whilst it waits to play a major supporting role in our next Rogue Trader adventure.|
So, what's the best piece of trash you've ever used for terrain?
