|Battle of Five Armies terrain bits|
I've been dealing with a flare-up of carpal tunnel syndrome in both of my hands that is making it difficult to do a lot of detail painting. I still do okay with block painting and drybrushing, though, so I decided to knock out a few terrain bits while I'm waiting to see the neurologist.
These are the ruined buildings that came with the Battle of Five Armies game from Games Workshop. I managed to get a copy of the book, the large modular hills, and the ruined buildings recently. I'm planning to put the armies together using some 10mm metal models from Pendraken, Copplestone Castings, and Kallistra. That has to wait until I get the rest of the queue of unpainted models done.
I put these together and stuck them on some 60mm x 60mm and 30mm x 60mm bases from Litko. I glued on some ballast with PVA glue and then added my typical sand and gravel mix. I painted them with acrylic craft paint and sealed them with my normal Plaid matte sealer.
These will see plenty of use for Warmaster and BoFA games. I'll also be able to use them for other 6mm and 10mm games.
I'm still working on a few regular figures, but they're taking a lot more time. I'll post some pics soon of the progress so far. Even with the slowdown, I'm still keeping pace with my model a day challenge. With these seven pieces, I can afford to not get anything finished until the beginning of May!
Models finished so far this year: 126
