Just the briefest of posts to showcase a couple of dwellings, planned for a Tatooine inspired Star Wars: Legion Board. These were from 'TTCombat' and were a simple cost effective solution to setting the scene. Having put them together in no time at all, I was curious to see if they could be enhanced to disguise the angular, rather boxy look? Wet strength tissue paper and PVA were used to seal the dome with the addition of some ‘eroded’ blue Styrofoam supports around the base. This was all given a coat of All Purpose Filler. On reflection I probably used too much on the first building and reigned that back a bit on the second attempt, striving for a crude, Adobe wall like effect.
Once dried additional sand texture was added along with some A/C Greebles from ‘Combatzone Scenery’ with the coiled wire and bulkhead lights coming from ‘Zinge Industries’. The whole piece was then given a diluted PVA glue protective coat. Painting just saw them primed in a suitable sand like colour, washed with Agrax Eathshasde and then dry brushed.
From start to finish, this was a refreshingly quick build, which went much as I had hoped. I had everything crossed when I gave them a spray coat of matt varnish as this has eaten into the blue foam before, but the protective PVA layer seemed to hold and all was well. With a couple of hovels under my belt and some new techniques secured, I am hoping to progress to a slightly more challenging build next.
