Me and my friend (leham89) are in the process of building a six foot by four foot battle board and in total weve only spent around twenty quid!!! you see all of our scenery is bits and pieces that weve found around the house. For example:- i saw sum sheets of low density polystyrene (the white one(excuse my spelling)) and cut it using a stanly knife or you could use a modelling knife, and have thought of an idea to create an oil rig which has been abandoned. When i first thought of the idea liam was intrigued by it and we went straight to work. We made the main floor, pillers and the first floor, we then found a BAKED BEAN can, washed it out and glued it on to where we thought it looked best, we then used old cable and striped part of the wire and fraued the copper to make it look like a broken power line. the only problem, it broke
, yes it broke. We don't know how but the legs snapped, probably because of the way we put it away, we don't know. i intend to either fix it or simply buils another one. another idea that i discovered in my bed room, was plastic soldiers, the green soldiers? like off of Toy Story, if you've ever seen it, well they came with barrels, crates, boats. All i had to do was simply paint them and cut them into the way i wanted, if needed for boats or somthing. but seriously, next time your sitting around and you think, "I'll paint or bulid some warhammer." simply look in your garden, around the house, BUT ASK PERMISSION TO TAKE THINGS, i'm sure you can find something, like pebbles; put two or three on top of each other, drill through the centre, very carfully, and pin them together, or glue them with a very strong glue. Add some sand or static grass around the joints and paint the rocks. I tend to base coat it black and drybrush on top, when dry, grey. any ways, ill think up some more ideas and leave them on here, please tell me if you found any of this helpful and improve any of what i said if you like. feel free. and have fun modelling.
