Scatter brained

So I'm having a go at some basic scatter terrain right now.  Not my usual thing, but I figure I can use it for photo backdrops.  I'm a bit new to this so I stuck with standard foamcore "Stalingrad"-style ruins:

I do like to make things complicated, so I gussied it up with some wreckage and a few ex-combatants, molded from a Khurasan power armored trooper and Mekanoid.  This gives a satisfying half-buried look without having to saw a metal figure in half lengthwise:

Next step is to spray prime everything... I hope I sealed the foam well enough.


  1. Hi, Mr. M. Are the half buried troops lying in sand? The finished product should work just fine. For me, just looking at the beginning of this project calls forth a plethora of scenarios in which this scenery could be used. Anxious to see the finished product.

    1. Me too!

      Yes, that's just a mix of play sand and railroad ballast glued down with PVA.

  2. Looks good Allison, and should paint up real purdy!

  3. This looks great so far. It will paint up a treat!
