Impending Campaign = New Scenery

This weekend involved a trip to Home Depot to pick up some supplies. There was a brief concern that I wasn't going to have enough gaming area if we have our possible 8 campaign participants so I decided to pop in and get some more 2'x4' sections to paint up. While I was there I became inspired by this:

My immediate thought was to make it into a monument, so I added a suitable base:

I did attempt to seal with watered down white glue to reduce the amount that the wood grain would show up but it failed to make an impact. Down the road I may go back with some spackle and then do a complete repaint of the piece. It looks good, but too obviously wood:

Inspired by the statue in Cities of Death, I added some bird shit. I think it came out fairly well:

While I was working on this, I did all off the drybrush work on the temple I made a few posts back. Here are all of the photos from today:

Thanks for reading!

You're right, the monument looks too "wood"... but the ruined temple, I'm loving that piece.

Nicely done.

I like them both. I especially like the bird shit.

I am always down with poop and refuse in the far future... sewers, rusty pipes, etc.

I'm pretty happy with the bird shit. I think I have an idea to make it look even better next time.

I agree with Ron though, the woodgrain really bothers me. Its great to have it done enough throw on the battlefield, but its definitely going to get upgraded eventually.

Add the crow from the nurgle lord box and I bet the bird shit looks even better.
