Warcry Ruined City/Starter Set Terrain

“Ruined City”

One of the big draws of the Warcry starter set is the really lovely set of terrain in the box, plastic ruins designed to set the scene of a ruined city, long ago abandoned to barbarism by a retreating force of “good” guys.

For multiple reasons, I had been itching to get the set set painted since release, about a year ago.

Fauxhenge

A mystical stone circle proves no deterrent to some evil hyena-pig-dogs.

Stonehenge, where demons dwell and cats meow, is an icon of the mythical race of druids and a recurring symbol of the faux mysticism of ROCK. Having a miniature stone circle/henge to send my tiny pretend people into, in order to summon demons/drink cider/ingest hallucinogens/tell lies in order to get laid [DELETE AS APPLICABLE] has been on my to do list since I was a kid.

The end result looks a little more like a series of carefully balanced Milky Way bars than I had hoped, but it’s fun all the same.

Although miniature stone circles are one of the easier terrain projects for a hobbyist to make from cheap/free and easily available materials, I bought this set. It was difficult to argue with the price.

I quite enjoy painting large Reaper Bones items. They are rugged and indelicate, which means that I tend to be quite happy working on them in a clumsy, slapdash fashion, similar to my lovemaking.

I spent a day in the sun painting this from start to finish… back in 2018. Being Reaper Bones, it had to be brush undercoated, but the warm, dry Irish summer’s day (yeah, really) made drying times rapid.

Witch Hunter Byron Maiden leads the faithful in search of pagans to burn.

I didn’t do anything particularly clever when painting it, just a fairly simple application of browns, greys and a little bit of green here and there.

I took a little bit of inspiration from this Warhammer TV tutorial, but diverged from it a fair bit. The principles and main approach used were the same though.

Gaslands Turrets

Turrets show up in Gaslands games in a number of different ways, via scenarios and the like. I picked up a set of turrets along with some other pieces from “Impudent Mortal” recently, and the twelve of them were assembled and painted in a Xmas-y haze last week.

Wobbly hazard marking WIP.

The paint job was essentially the same recipe as discussed here, with a very basic (read as: “wobbly and inconsistent”) yellow and black hazard stripe pattern around the top of the turret, before I obscured about 80% of it with a variety of simple dirt and rust effects.

Mostly finished at this stage.

The pieces were simple to assemble and fun to paint. The design is nice too: totally unambiguous in all the right ways.

Gaslands Slay Ride Advent(ure) #23: Snowman

It being Festivus, I was hoping for an aluminium rod, or perhaps a clock in a bag nailed to a wall, but to be honest, I was actually quite pleased to see this.
