Just a quick update on a completed part of a much larger WIP.
|No, the Marines aren't the subject of this post... but they add some color!|
In between trying to get my Devastators where I want them, I've been trying out +Paul Ward's techniques for terrain built from cork. Go check out his buildings and templates here: http://www.matakishi.com/makingbuildings.htm
I already have some desert hills I've built up previously in my terrain kit, so I decided to start building out a village using his plans for his Afghan Buildings. He's obviously far more talented and detail oriented than I am, so his buildings look amazing, and mine will pass for table-ready!
I made a few modifications to his plans to change some asthetics, but overall I'm happy with how the building turned out. As I build up the rest of them I'll put up a more detailed post. (hopefully with straighter cuts and better drybrushing!) The colors I used are the three craft paints below. Brown Oxide is becoming the standard base color for my Space Marine bases, so the terrain should fit in well with them.

All told, the building took about half of a cork tile, and maybe an hour and a half of work, counting time for the paint to dry. Not bad if I build up some of these to paint all at once!
