Spent a little more time on the split ruin this morning and it just keeps looking better. I eventually settled on using cardstock for the roof and it looks better than I thought. It helped that on this model you fold the roof over so it is actually two sheets of cardstock thick. I’ll have to do that with all the buildings I think.
Here’s a few shots of the building assembled and based.
I’ve added a little bit of sawdust, pebbles and wood chips to add a little 3D rubble. The rubble on the artwork is great and won’t get in the way of the miniatures so I’ll leave that alone.
Working on the wrecked house now while waiting for the glue to set on this one to dry. Tonight I’ll start painting the edges of the MDF and give the rubble a grey/black paint/wash and then tomorrow night I’ll look at flocking the rest of the base. If I’m feeling adventurous enough and I’m not too tired from work I’m thinking of putting a little stone wall near the side door, we’ll see.
These Dave Graffam buildings really are the business. They’re simple to build, look good and still allow you to get your hobby groove on what’s not to love?
