"I'll be fine, as long as there's a bed beneath the stars that shine" - Pre war music lyric.
First of a trio of small ruins.
The first objective with this group was to make some bits of terrain that could be placed individually or together as parts of a single building.
The second objective was (as with all the NR scenery) that it should be free and cobbled together from what I had to hand.
Like my previous small NR terrain pieces, I used old scratched up discs for the bases. The Ruins were made from bits of polystyrene packaging, I made a crap job of sealing the polystyrene before the undercoating so I suffered a fair bit of the dreaded melt but as these are quick pieces designed to be used and abused I shrugged it off and carried on.
This first ruin is the most substantial of the three and features a lookout post bodged together from car parts and scrap metal (all those leftover bits of diecast car are really coming in handy)
There is also a grisly pile of dusty bones piled up inside, perhaps victims of the lookouts occupants?
Painting all the Graffiti was lots of fun, although it's definitely something I need to improve on in future, by the time I'd finished all three I'd found a few simple symbols I could reproduce quicly and easily across the trio (smile faces / skulls / mushroom clouds etc) that seemed to work well to break up the scrawled writing and insults.
Thanks for stopping by! Part two of three coming soon!
