Lovely Place to Visit...

Once again, the towers rise above the horizon and the fallen masonry hides dark horrors from unwary travellers. Behold the fallen city of Grangeton. I'll be looking to play a few games over the coming weeks and there are still a few additions I want to add just to finish the place off, but they can wait for now.

In the mean time, take a look around, see the sites and don't forget to to tip your tour guide.... where ever he's got to that is.

For anyone interested, these buildings were from and were an absolute joy to build.

Architecture Taking Shape

Well, it's taken a while, but I've finally had a chance to put some paint on the ruins I've been working on. Here's a short step by step of work so far...

Bare bones wood. Just the buildings as they are out of the pack.

Next up, extra detail with coffee stirrer decking and a bit of poly filler for texture.

 Black paint and builder's sand for that authentic wreck floor interior feel.

And with the feng shui complete it's on to the painting and decorating. 

That's it for now. I'll be back next time with the finished works. All that's left is detailing and a bit of tidying up (as much as you can for ruins any how)

Elevation and Brick Laying

Only a short update today. Further development on my ruined city.

Maybe next time, I'll actually have the buildings to show off.

Builder's 34th Tea Break

Just a quick update whilst the weather is nice.

A lick of paint and then it's on to the ruins themselves.

Rome Was Not Built In a Day....

....And neither were any of my projects. Just a quick up date on my new set of ruined city scenery.
The raised platforms and rubble just need some extra details before painting and then the actual ruins themselves (from Bendy Boards) will get a bit of attention. More updates soon.

The small "hills" will get a bit of extra detail to make them look like piles of rubble.

 This one just needs some poly filler and its ready for painting.

Landscaping on a 28mm Scale

Well folks this week has been a lot of rushing around and getting commissions finished with time to spare for the nice weather we had. Now the weather's gone back to it's traditional Welsh ways (rain and lots of it) I have no excuse for staying indoors and doing something practical. More on that in a bit.

First, a long term project of mine that is due a bit of an expansion, my personal gaming table. Only a modest 3'x3' but it's been an absolute joy to work over the last year and I'm looking to expand on the collection of scenery. my next batch will turn this adorable fantasy hamlet into a forgotten ruined city.

 I assure you the skulls are purely decorative. Nothing sinister going on in this house at all.

 Camping in the woods... in a fantasy world.... usually something turns up to eat your party.

And that's the brief tour of the Hamlet of N'Idea. As I said earlier, I'm expanding, so my next lot of scenery will use the same base, but will transform this pretty little dwelling into something muck more my liking. I'll have a few pictures of that as they develop.
