Copied from my Terrain WIP thread in case it is of interest to 40K players.

Well now I will commit sacrilege and post a proper WIP of some 40K ruins I made for the son of some friends of ours who was mad on 40K. Unlike the Osgiliath ruins I had found some foam card by then, so i was able to make something a bit more like the right dimensions.

I must admit I was quite pleased with the finished result.

The WIP shows a couple of techniques of mine.

The chamfered hardboard that would be PVA's both sides to stop any chance of warping.

Checking for clearance with bases

Use of a fine sand / PVA slurry to coat things. I did use bit of textured paint on the walls as this is a more subtle effect.

Image

Adding some pipework with some thin round wood

Image

I must admit I was quite pleased with the finished result.

I added a bit or barbed wire and used basic dry brushing to slowly highlight it up until i was happy.

I was quite pleased with the rusty pipework effect and the scarred walls.

Image

I made a couple of extra craters too - the three pieces were an extra towards his birthday and he was well pleased with them ;-)

In the grim darkness of the far future there is only war ... lol

I really like the destroyed building with the barbed wire. Although the last crater looks more like a volcano rather than a crater caused by a bomb. Really good job overall though! Looking forward for some more.

The craters remind me of one of Murphy's Laws of War:
Never share a foxhole with anyone braver than yourself.

The walls of the building could be scarred and perforated from shrapnel and debris - the great thing about ruins is they can be any size or shape, and can include anything - wrecked vehicles, wrecked planes, even dead creatures!

Nice work Azog.
