Yeah i was already going to add grounding. And a puddle was in my mind aswell . But the barrel will look good when its done, cant see it properly at moment. Paint bottles are too big.

Thanks for the advice, appreciate it.

Edit - I mean a puddle crossed my mind, i dont know yet though.

Some "scrap" wood inside the barrel. Adding more stuff, just need to let this dry from primer.

Also i added a picture showing the cardboard before and after from the scraping process that takes quite some time. I use a razer blade and scrape up and down along the panels in a very quick manner, seems to work well.

Also i tried to make some things using green stuff and i keep failing, and its soo sticky making every thing annoying lol.

Going to start adding grounding. I have added some random wire sort of a thing that i might paint red, and some mosqitou netting as wire mesh was added on that side area. Also i found these wheels on this thing had, so i ripped them off it and put that near the wood scraps and barrel. I did a really messy quick primer over those newly added objects, it looks messy and its hard to tell whats there, but when i paint them it should fix that.

Ill show all angels of it when i post next lot.

Cheers. I will add grass "weeds" aswell around the outside, i made them with green stuff, just waiting for them to harden. Then door hinges are next, then grounding, then painting it. I might have to skip a puddle for this one i think, not sure yet.

Ground layed. Now im going to paint it all when its all dried. Also added a little foam wooden "sign" which you can see in black, still have to prime it. I smashed up some white rocks with a hammer in the rain outside to get what you see, then cleaned them untill there was completely clean water coming off them with no cloudiness or any thing other then pure clean see through water.

Oh yeah i got some more weeds im going to add aswell.

Progress update. Lots of mistakes i notice after taking pictures. I am going to add puddles where you see those patches in the gravel/mud ( not sure ), trying to figure out if the puddles should be a lighter or darker color then the rest of the ground. Have not highlighted any thing except for the wood. Have not painted the wire at all, i just put a little red part at the end randomly, but yeah that has not been touched yet. I only just washed the ground now so its still wet. And i have noticed after taking these pictures there is patches of ground i have missed and need to either paint or add more grounding. The barrel is only painted blue with nothing else done to it yet, i had painted it a rusty color, but i thought that it blended too much in with the building and i wanted it to stand out a bit more, so i will be shading and highlighting it soon. The metal tin has been painted and washed ( took me for ever because every time i took a picture to upload i noticed areas i had missed ), i am not sure what more to do with it yet, i am thinking about some rust or some gak but im not sure. The wood took me a long time also, because i ended up painting it like 3 times, first reason is because the nature of the foam im painting ment that you could see little holes where the paint had not filled, so it needed a few coats, and the second reason is because i kept fething up the brown color i was trying to create by mixing red and black, and 3rd reason is i tried really hard to get the only highlight i did on the wood to not hit the cracks at all, and yeah that was a bit tricky since the nature of the surface of the foam made the brush not flow smoothly along the surface because it was not like hard plastic or metal.

I will post more angels when its finished. Also i noticed i forgot to clean the wash off ( its going to be a bronze or some thing like that color ) the shield thing that i pulled off some old thing i found. So i have since cleaned that off. Im going to keep wasghing it untill its quite dark, then i will dry brush some thing on it to make it rougher, but i dont know what yet.


So yeah, puddles have not been added yet, but you can see the patches where they will be installed.

Wire mesh is not done yet, and blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. And i will highlight ground when mistakes are fixed and wash is dry.


edit - Oh and hinges are not done either. And still need to add the weeds, and paint the ones green that are already there.


Edit - So nothings finished in other words.


EDIT - WILL ADD PICTURE OF THE SIDE I FORGOT TO TAKE A PICTURE OF SOON.

Thanks so much appreciate it.




---------------------------------------------------------------------------------PAINT IS STILL WET SO LOOKS WAY TOO ORANGE IN SOME AREAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOTE!!!! ---------------------------------------------------------------



Have started to apply rust, but i might need to wash it to make it a bit less orange, but im going to add different colored rust any way ( darker ) in the middle of it. Also im going to need to do a another brighter highlight on all the wood i think. I have added the puddle, its suppose to be oil, but the glaze has made it so you cant see the highlight i did to make it not just black, but still looks good any way i think. Next time if i did it i would add way more highlights too it. Also i highlighted steel, fixed alot of mistakes, but still alot to do, ground not done yet, and wire is not done, wood is not done, barrel is not done etc.

So yeah any suggestions would be great because this is my first time doing all of this stuff, and also its my first time doing any sort of "ware" like real ware, not just some dry brush of steel or what ever like i did oin my first tanks (n first models ever painted ) you might see in the gallery.

NOTE - TERRAIN IS ELEVATED HIGHER THEN THE MODEL BECAUSE THE MODEL IS NOT ON THE CARDBOARD( TERRAIN ), BUT IF IT IS STANDING ON THE CARDBOARD ( TERRAIN ), THEN IT IS SCALED 100% CORRECTLY.





Not finished, just showing Size comparison to a regular CSM. Also added bit more rust trying to make it blend it more, but yeah i need to add much darker rust around with what is already there. I may need to make the orange darker all together. I did one highlight of the ground aswell. The wooden doors and the wood in the barrel do not look as good as the rest of the wood because i carved them differently, and i dont want to try carv more in while its already built in because its foam and weak and would be too hard to carv lines with a razd er.

Door hinge's not done, wire not done, wire mesh not done, wood maybe done i dont know. Still alot to do with alot of different things.

edit - i dont know why but in pictures the ground looks like wood chips, which actualy fits i guess, but in real life it looks more like desert colored rocks sort of a thing... And also i would agree with any one who would say i should change the puddle to green or some thing to make it look like a chemical spill or some gak.

Practically finished, i re did the rust on some areas, and lots of little things are complete. I still need to fix a few small things before i call it fully complete. So this is my first ever terrain peice, and i have been in the modeling / paniting /' wargaming hobby for a bit over 1 year now, i am very happy with it. This was built completely from scratch, you can look back in this blog to see its progression.


I couldn't figure out what to put on the sign, so i just put "UNIT 1", and i guess in the future i can name the next one UNIT 2 lol. Who knows.



**********************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

WHAT MATERIALS I USED

Wire = Headphone wire
Steel mesh = Mosquito netting
Barrel = Rolled up regular white paper.
Tin walls = Middle area of regular cardboard
Wood = Foam from E - vaporiser packaging. ( the only part that is not made by me from scratch is that big shield thing on the side of the building, and that little wooden wheel in the front of building ).
Grass/weeds = Green stuff
Shield / Symbol thing = This part and the wooden wheel at the front was not made by me, it was ripped off s this old model thingi found i had laying around.
Wooden Wheel = This part was ripped off from an old model i found laying around
Door Hinges = Cardboard and green stuff.
Ground = Smashed up rocks using a hammer.
Supposed to look like oil puddle = Glaze varnish and black / brown paint.

Yes well i dont want to ruin it up by doing too much to rust/ware it with my in experience with this, so i figure it looks like it was recently put up and thats why there's only light ware / rust.

Yes actually i have lol, but i cant draw at all and i think that's waaaay to risky for me to attempt, but i definitely did think about that because it would look alot more less like a country building and more of a end of the world sort look. But yeah i dont know man.

Don't need to be a neat great one but rather some text, like "feth off", etc.

Lol, i was going to put feth or some thing on the sign, but i dont know. But yes i could do that, but im not sure because i had a bad experience trying to apply the rust, and after fixing it im not keen on going down that path for this again, because i think i have done the best i can do considering this is my first try.

That shack is great, such a variety of textures on the build makes it look really unique.

Nice progress on the tower - is it a chaos sorcerers lair?
