Terrain is everything - Old walls

Some old-school foamcard walls. These are from back in the day when White Dwarf expounded the awesome value of foamcard and gave tips on how to model your own walls. Not possessed with the gaming use foresight I now have I proceeded to make two very different walls and painted one to completion while leaving the other unfinished.


Here's the ruined wall that allows your marine to stride though, of course with only the 8 inches of wall I created it's not too much of a hardship to just walk round the thing, but it's the thought that counts.


The completed garden wall, I can't help think of the children's books The Secret Garden and Tom's Midnight Garden when I see this, from the contasting sloped capped wall to the attempt at moss on the sides I still like it, even if the dry-brushing is another example of my lack of ability of this painting technique.
