Castle Tower Ruins – The Base

A while back (or at least that’s what it feels like at the moment) I started working on a terrain/scenery piece. I  thought i’d get it done on the very same day until I realized I had lost the one piece of basing I wanted for the piece. I looked EVERYWHERE!

…as Brandon will tell you…. everything stopped as I looked frantically for it.

I didn’t find it. The paint project was done.

Yesterday, as I was looking for my Motorhead Bad Magic CD, I found this under a pile of comics on the floor. THE MISSING BASE PIECE!

There was going to be no substitute after I saw what the final piece would look like in my minds eye. So this was a joy find.

I used PVA to stick the ruins on the CD and started tarting up my ruins.

The pebbles was something left here by some fella who wanted to do a huge terrian project but in the end left me with a ton of basing material. (These are all mine now, thank you. Three years is long enough to keep it for you.)

The lil bushs are ARMY PAINTER’s POISON IVY as is the Static Grass.
