|My attempt at Mr. Bones before putty.|
The graveyard scene itself is being build on top of a wooden base. This base is actually a clock face I bought at Micheal's and it works perfectly, without the need to have a router to make my own. The actual ground is made up of pink insulation foam.
|This was crazy easy!|
The tree was made of green floral wire and drywall filler compound. I twisted the wire into shape, following the example in Games Workshop's How to Build Wargaming Terrain book. Then I covered it with the filler compound and let it sit. The end result was really impressive! Once I got it test fit, I decided I needed something else. And after digging around in the bits bin I found and old owl familiar. I cut that baby off it's base and stuck it on the outstretched limb.
The open grave was dug out of the foam in sections. I wanted to keep the walls of it as ragged and imperfect as possible. Then I also covered them with filler compound to help with the roughness. In the bottom of the grave is a wooden coffin. The lid of the coffin is made up of small wooden hobby sticks. Which I then weathered to make it look rotten and scared from Mr. Bones' shovel hitting it.
|Grave dug, with filler on sides.|
First. I painted the whole thing black as a base coat. Then I painted the sides of the grave again, after the whole thing had dried for a bit. and filled the hole with sand, in order to get the walls nice and covered. It worked out nicely too!
