Deep Strike Mishap...
The construction of my stompa, "The Ramblin' Wreck" left me with the battered remains of a drop pod. All told, I had a little less than half of a complete pod, so naturally I thought to turn it into a terrain piece. This is the WIP shot as it stands now.
Pretty basic construction, really. I mocked up the angle I wanted the pod to sit at, then cut a somewhat organic shape from masonite. I glued the drop pod in place and built up sand drifts in various spots with modeling putty. After that, I flocked the entire base, and sealed it with two coats of watered down pva glue.
I still need to add a bit of battle damage before primer and paint, mainly bullet holes and various chips and scratches. Possibly a snotling or two in the rubble, trying to salvage some bits of scrap. I plan to paint it in my Fire Hawks scheme, with little or no graffiti to suggest that it is a fairly recent wreck, before the lads find it and set about lootin' the worky bits. More to come on this project, stay tuned!
