Default Pet Shop Terrain

Hey,

I'm sure many of you do this, but I went looking in my local pet shop to see what sort of wierd terrain I can find. You know the stuff, ruins and plants that people put in their fish tanks. I was surprised to find how much decent stuff is there and how cheap it is. I came out with this pretty sweet ruin, and for only 11.99. It's like something Forgeworld would make, except without the 250 price tag. Oh yes, and it wouldn't be pre-painted either.

Some pics (sorry, may be a little dark):





Some unfinished Grey Knights in the foreground of this one:



Anyway, what should I do with the thing? It looks decent as it is, but can you guys think of any way I could spice it up? Repaint parts maybe? Add dead things? Suggestions welcome

Cheers.

Where I play the pet shop stuff is king. They are cheap, painted, and looks good. It's a win,win,win situation.

At the store we always look for new and interesting terrain. Cheap is also good too.
