Great job. I 've been planning a well out of blue foam, but now I'm inching ever closer to getting the clay gun.

Aah... The products of a misspent Saturday night Smile

I was hoping to be a little further along until I got remind of a couple of rugby matches today....

I'm sure you'll all spot the.. essential.. building session supplies Smile



And a closer view at the well



Still to do:
* Texture the base,
* Roof tiles (Not decided if I'm going to go with the older style rectangular, or crack on with the stamp I've got...
* Rivets/bolt heads/Nail geads for the joints

Your workshop shows the necessary level of clutter for a creative mind to function. What a Face

Other than a quick bit of filing once the glue's dry, it's ready for the paint abuse.

Have to say, given I tried a few new techniques, I wasn't so sure it would turn out so Well *... Razz



* Apparently I'm not as funny as I think I am according to my wife

Your wife is a Lady of discerning taste. thumbsup
That's turning out VERY WELL...I'm similarly lacking as well. Looks like you cast up some capping pieces; those would work well for Italian/Spanish style roofing tiles. I really like the cover you made. Have FUN with the painting. What a Face

Hahaha love it! The daft jokes that is, I'm quite fond your model as-well...

I like the way the roof turned out, I'm glad you went for the tile stamp effect.

Kleindorf is looking good Cool

Thanks, The capping tiles were made in the same way as the bricks, just with the half-circle rather than the square. I figure I can use that one, and some of the smaller round ones for veins when I get back to work on my Tyranid terrain.

Me too, I cut the tiles a little shorter than they normally are - It made them a bit trickier to roughly line up, but worth the extra effort.

I'm planning to get some group shots, possibly on Tuesday or so, and so far, our first game is tentatively planned for next weekend.

So, onto this afternoon's work:



I think the bricks will look better once I've textured the inside & outside to blend them in, rather than looking quite stark against the black of the foamcore.

I think on the next ruins I work on, rather than cut the wavy line for the damaged walls, I'll stick with straight (ish) lines, and build up the effect with the bricks. Still, I doubt there's ever a project where you don't learn something.

Mind you, I have suggested I build the walls totally with bricks, and then throw rocks at it or fire a BB gun to get an interesting effect. But then, I was reminded that the last time I did anything with a BB gun I managed to shoot myself in the butt.... Embarassed

Still need to finish the rafters and roof supports for what's left of the roof, shutters, door, quoins, some rubble, as well as a few posters to go on the outside when it's painted up...

So, the well has now been labelled as 'The Well of Procrastination' by our gaming group since I admitted I made as I was taking a break from timbering the inside of the ruin... I've just got to come up with some scenario specific rules for it now Smile

And, almost ready for paint on the ruins - Just have to tile the roof, texture the base and add rubble, doors and a couple of shutters then it's Paint Frenzy time Surprised

The ruins look amazing, and the well looks good as, heh, well.

You can get both, I personally use Air-drying Das terracotta myself. Apparently I'm barely trusted to order pizza, let alone trying to bake clay Smile Lass fiddling about too Smile

And I think we need to start a bad-pun brigade on here Smile

So.. After dragging myself away from the well of procrastination, and everything else I'm "Supposed" to be doing Smile The ruins are finally undercoated & ready for the paint-frenzy to start tomorrow night



I think there's enough wreckage to suggest the damage, without making it unusable for miniatures...

EXCELLENT...the undercoating shows off the details SPLENDIDLY. The amount of built on damage is just about perfect; you can always add removable clutter if the mood strikes you. Keep on keeping on! What a Face

Thanks, to be honest - the undercoating is one of my favourite parts of the models - they actually start to physically come together as a single homogenous whole, rather than the separate parts - It's up there with the finished model, and the pile of raw components for me...

Thanks Guys Smile

The wall textures are relatively simple:
The ruins use both of the ways I've used on previous buildings.

Exterior walls:
Ready mixed filler (Spackle) splodged on, roughly smoothed with a finder, then stippled with an old toothbrush

Interior Walls:
Mix of powdered filler, water and fine sand - enough water is added so that it can be painted on the inside, without being too thin to pool up.run off. This bit took a little experimentation*

Hope it helps Smile

* Actually, I got lucky first time Smile
