Default Cheap ruined building

I like making terrain with what I have at home. For this building I have used cardboard, foam packing material and some copperwire (idea stolen from Slai, thanks man.) and other stuff. The small angels are from wine bottles from work. I use cheap acrylic paint from an art store. Use some citadel paint for some drybrushing. Simple painting too only a couple of lighter drybrushes over a base colour.







The tiles are only carboard glud in to place and with a skull white drybrush ontop to make them look lughter colured then the rest. The ladder is a chop stick and copperwire.

Hmm, nice. Best possible design for ruins: useable in both 40k and Warhammer.

Ser skitfint ut!
Only complain is the tiles, just make them out of foam, draw some crossing lines(#) on the piece that is going to have tiles, use a knife and just cut into the lines(very shallow, about 0.5mm) then use the end of a brush and follow the lines pushing it into the cuts.

the dud could also be from the Chaos dwarfs mortar, I think they had missiles as ammo. Or am I'm wrong??
I don't know about the reinforcement bars though, as they didn't use concrete in the ironage...

and the angels are really cool, where did you get them from? vine bottles??

Yeah, Chaos Dwarves used missiles as ammo in their mortars.

Slai:* That would make for nice tiles .But my verison took about 2 minutes to make. Good when you have my patience :-)

Yes the small angels are from wine bottles, Torres Sant Valenti and Torres San Valentin.. not too nice wine, but can be found at your local Systembolaget.. when you get the age for it ;-)

Looks good, but it is a little dull color wise. Maybe paint it some more.
