Amid The Ruins – Part 5

I’ve been chipping away at a few odds and ends of terrain, mostly the smaller stuff from the Warcry box, whenever I’ve needed a break from working on the Knight. Nothing terribly dramatic here but with a bunch of them now finished I reckoned I’d accumulated enough to make it worthwhile assembling a post about them.

First off, a couple of small walls (I did tell you there was nothing here to get super excited about right?).

A spiky chaos barricade…

A heap of rubble…

…and some mysterious gratings, through which some poor soul has undoubtedly been dragged – and devoured…

Apart from the gratings all of the above comes from the Warcry set, and the gratings themselves would fit in nicely there as well (especially in arena fights for instance).  With the Knight being the focus of my energy at the moment I’m not feeling too keen to take on the bigger buildings but as soon as it’s done I’d like to get back to them and finish off the set.

    ah, the gratings make me think so much of Joseph Curwen’s hidden laboratory in “The case of Charles Dexter Ward” by Lovecraft, nice job on this terrain sets!

      Thank you! Oh yeah, there’s bound to be something grim hidden beneath those gratings; a dungeon, a torture chamber, a hidden laboratory full of horrors, a beast that’s about to get out…

    That’s where you’re wrong, I really like seeing well painted terrain mate so I’m happy. Love the splodge of blood too hehe

    Nice bits of scatter terrain

  • Pete S/ SP

    They look great. Should be good bits of filler on the table.

    Cheers,

    Pete.

    Nicely done mate and one step closer to a diorama! 😉

    • Wudugast

      Thanks mate 🙂 Someday I’ll get around to doing a diorama – it’s one of the big hobby projects that I’ve yet to tick off. I’ve got a few ideas but so far neither the time nor the space. Someday though, someday…

    These are all nice pieces of terrain with some really nice touches of weathering. Definitely worth sharing! I’m like you in that when I’m doing a “big” project (or at least one that is time consuming), I like to sprinkle in some mindless hobbying like terrain to help counterbalance all of the mental energy spent painting the bigger project. I’ll be looking forward to seeing the knight finished but take your time with it and don’t stop working until you’re satisfied with the final result!

    • Wudugast

      Thank you! Yup, fully agree, sometimes doing some mindless terrain is just the palette cleanser you need with a big, complex project. The mate who got me into painting gave me two pieces of advice, which at first sound contradictory but I’ve always taken them to heart. “Don’t stop until you’re satisfied it’s done” and “If you think it’s done, it’s done. If you decide in a month or a year that it wasn’t done after all, pick it up and carry right on”. The former keeps me working on projects and stops me getting too distracted (although that is undoubtedly my sin!), the latter stops me from battering away at something until I’m just frustrated and I’ve ruined all my previous work, if it feels done call it done, and if later I realise I could do more/better with it, no-one is going to tell me off for picking it up again 🙂

        Your friend was very wise! I would say for me, something along the lines of “A model can always be painted further or improved
        even more” has become a truism as well. There’s almost always something you can do even better or put more time into but once you get to a certain point, 9.5 out of 10 people can’t be bothered to do that extra work due to lack of patience, having other things they want to paint, etc. I salute you for not being afraid to go back and pick up old projects and push them further. I think a lot of people would benefit from that persistence!

    Nice looking pieces mate, I know how you feel about the bigger ones, I felt guilty about that big bit of terrain I purchased last summer and thought, bugger it I have to do something with it, well may be this summer HaHa ! good luck with yours mate!
