Stronghold Terrain: Weitere Ruineninfos
Von Stronghold Terrain gibt es weitere Infos zu den kommenden Ruinen.
As promised I finally show you some pictures of the finished „Ruin 2“ with additional „Diorama Extention“.
The basis for this building is the model kit of the Ruin 2. I designed a special Diorama Extention Set with the following additional parts:
– remants of 2. floor (3 pieces)
– stairs (3 parts)
– remants of inner wall (1 piece)
– more rubble (6 pieces)
– windows (4 pieces)
– rain tube (1 piece)
– cupboard (1 piece)
– picture frame (1 piece)
– sheet with wallpapers (1 piece)
– piece of overhead foil to make splinters of glass
As you can see from the pictures, the additional parts turn the basic ruin (wargaming version) into a highly realistic diorama.
About the building an painting:
This was the first time I used wallpapers on a model and I am more than satisfied with the result. I cut out the single pieces with scissors and glued them to the walls with a glue stick – really simple. I weatherd the papered walls by scratching off some parts parts of the wallpaper with a modelling knife and using dry pigments for the dirt.
With a sharp knife I partly demolished the window frames. I learned it the hard way that it is much easyer to paint the window frames before gluing them to the walls (Hint!)
Finally I cut a lot of splinters from the overhead foil and glued them with superglue to the window frames, on the window sills and on the floor. I must admit that this was the most time consuming and difficult part of the whole process – but I think the result adds even more realismn to the model.
I hope you like the new model and I would like to get some feedback about what you think.
PS: The model kit will inclued everything you can see in the pictures, except the glue and the colors.
Also the miniature and the toilet you can spot somewhere in a picture or two are not included.
