Looks good. The use of straws is great; those things are soooo useful!
Making it on a slant looks complicated. Most of the boards I've done are flat, with a piece of scenery stuck to it; like a gun battery or other GW terrain.
Are you painting this up as well?
I was really apprehensive about using straws as they are not exactly a sturdy material but they're usually nestled within a few other elements on this build so they shouldn't shift around. Any that do or that I suspect will move become superglued to the board instead of PVA.
We will be painting reaalllllllllllly soon. :D
We begin with the blue texture!!!!
This is rendering paint, as I get a lot of questions about it and it's changed the way I do hobby. No lies.
It's a thick texture that you can paint on wherever you need it, add grainy rocky desert or even thinned down can create small rusting effects. I have used it on every piece I've made since we got it and I don't intend to go back to sanding with PVA ever again.
The sand will help cover the unsightly expanding foam, plus protect the actual soft foam edges from damages during spray.
Because its painted on, you can use it to create drift and flow through the areas you want it quite easily too!
