As you might remember from my Wednesday post, I was happily getting ready my West Bonus Round Entry until Monday morning. Then I realized, the next Bonus round is (Home) Terrain. Luckily I had this Warbases "Tower Modular" almost assembled, so I dropped everything else, finished the assembly and grabbed my biggest brush.
As you can see, this is not the regular Tower Modular, I have altered it a bit and created a small yard next to it.
base is Terrain Tray again from Warbases, the wall around the yard is
foamcard. The roof is made using the old Cereal Box -method. The same
method is used on the tiles on the walls. Two pillars are wooden
I added some texture on the walls using Citadel Agrellan Badland texture paint, it worked out quite nice.
general I was aiming for a bit worn look, opposite of my other
buildings (and Oldhammer miniatures), which are quite clean and shiny.
This is not a timber house, it's made of tiles and plaster - something
like the lone buildings next to desert you see in the old Italian
Tower fits quite well with my other Warbases MDF building, as you can
see. I really like this stuff, they are easy to build, light, but
robust.I should have paid a bit more attention to the corners to hide
the joins, but I'm wiser with the next building.
And yes, it is Home Terrain for my small Empire force, who shares the same colors.
But it's not all, you can remove the roof!
And use the Tower as a Dice Tower! Now it is safe to roll the dice on the game board without ugly cardboard boxes!
