15 mm scale
This was an idea I had a while ago for an interesting, cheap scenery piece. I don't normally make, or have use for, scenery/terrain but this was too fun and easy to pass up as a holiday project.
Sacrificed: one "Clone Wars" Pez dispenser; surprisingly solid and tedious to saw through, I have to say. You could probably use any action figure head or even a Barbie (if you didn't mind your relic looking like Barbie).
I glued the sliced head to a 2.5" diameter wooden craft circle with hot glue, and smeared some more glue around to make the ground uneven. Then covered with a mix of sand and ballast and spray-primed.
Wow... at this point I was pretty pleased with the result but I felt it still kind of looked like a toy. It needed a bit of scale. So I painted on some lines to make it look like it was originally carved out of massive blocks. And, of course a little bit of scraggly desert vegetation to add some colour.
So there you have it. One mildly-interesting terrain piece, the mysterious ruins of a long-lost temple or monolith. Could be better, but as a test run I can't complain. Maybe someone else can improve on the concept with some more details, or better source material.
