Project Graveyard - Final

Thanks to all the readers who left encouraging comments - I am glad to announce that Project Graveyard is complete.

Carrying on from the previous instalment...

The "frame" is sprayed black and then painted in medium grey and drybrushed in light grey. The fence sections are sprayed black, and then painted with a silver paint that leaves a gunmetal finish.

The "insert" is likewise sprayed black and then painted in brown, and highlighted with the same brown paint mixed with some grey paint.  I chose to flock it with Varied Dry Grass from Realistic Modeling instead of my usual green mix to give it that desolate feel.   
The scene is then completed with a crypt, a tree stump, tombstones, and some dried flowers from my potpourri jar (what? A man can't like nice scents?).




I had fun making this, and now fg, Thomas and I are thinking of collaborating on another project: Project Vampire Mansion. I will make an insert for the grounds of the mansion to be fitted inside the same fenced area, fg will build the Warhammer Chapel he has, and Thomas will rig some flickering LED lights for the interior. Stay tuned.

actually the base without the insert looks pretty cool! I thought you printed something and stuck it on

Looks superb mate. Great job!

It's a bit out of focus, but I get what you mean: it can be the portal to hell or something...

Thanks for your comments and interest, Brummie. :)

Great looking model Arjun, very atmospheric.

Fantastic work. I really like this.

Thanks, guys. It's not a difficult piece, and because it is 'modular' the components can be used for other purposes too.

Really cool!

I think modular scenery like this is definitely the way to get the most out of your hobby dollar and modelling time
