Ruined Tower set

Postby Lovejoy » Wed Sep 30, 2015 10:37 pm

Jo sculpted some terrain for our latest Kickstarter - a ruined watchtower. And she took loads of pics while she was making it; so we've done a step-by-step thingy HERE
Have a look, and marvel at the epic quantities of Milliput sacrificed in the name of wargaming... :shock:

Excellent tutorial, I really enjoyed reading that.
When I die I want the Arsenal players to lower me into my grave so they can let me down one last time.

Very nice article, well written and clear.

I'll certainly nick some of those techniques, thanks.

Yeah, a really good tutorial there.
Very impressed. Especially the flooring - little blobs of milliput, and all put together so well! I am impressed with that.
If I'm honest I think the paintjob on the finished models doesn't do them enough favours. Seeing the models in the tutorial there's more detail than is brought out in the painted models. I think a lighter colour with a higher contrast would have shown and 'sold' them much better. Give 'em a re-paint and do them the justice they deserve!

Thanks guys - I think she did a good job with it, especially as it's only her second set of sculpted stuff.
Humph, I know what you mean on the paint - I think we should have gone for a higher contrast job; and to be fair, it does look better In Real Life... I just take crap photos!

Anyway, there's now a part 2... the moulding and casting. Here's a link, in case you fancy a gander:
Part 2 - gettin' mouldy with it
