Small Scenics – Altar Bases/Shattered Monuments

Another couple of small scenic bits given to me some time ago that I have no idea of the origin of – these two resin pieces seem to be part of the same series, as they’re almost inverse of one another. Given their 60mm diameter, they’re pretty clearly meant to be scenic bases, but I felt that they’d work well enough – circular nature and all – as small bits of scatter terrain. Specifically, shattered burial monuments. I’ve been (very slowly) working on a graveyard/cemetary project for some time, inspired by Cheetor’s St Cranium’s Cemetary and based around several pieces, such as the old Unknown Grave I posted on awhile ago, the rather excellent Citadel Garden of Morr kit (now re-released with 2x sprues as the Sigmarite Mausoleum – it’s great, go buy one!) a couple of cool Scotia Grendel pieces and the Renedra Gravestones kit. So rather than using either of these as actual bases, they got roped into being part of the cemetery. Actually, the Bones Fountain would fit in perfectly there, too!

Painted in greys, with some brown and black washes and finished with weathering powders. A small amount of trim on each was painted as faded, aged brass rather than carved stone, simply to get a small additional spot of colour variation on them.

Not a lot else to say, really. Taken on their own they’re nothing especially exciting, but they’ll add nicely to the overall effect of the Cemetery when it’s laid out on the table.

If I had the time to stretch creatively with The Chapel Project over at Heresy of Us, these would very much be included in my output, so you can consider them that in spirit at least…
