Small Scenics: Archon Studios Ramparts – “Kazumi Altar”

Archon Studios Ramparts - Kazumi Altar

Another quick bit from the Archon Studios “Ramparts” terrain Kickstarter – a little plastic Altar from the extras package of the “Kazumi” style. These came alongside the stairs that I painted recently, and as such, I do have another pair of these sitting to one side. I didn’t paint all three because, well, how many altars do you need at once? And more pertinantly, it’s very much the kind of small piece that’s perfect for incorporating into larger terrain pieces. So I’ve kept them aside for that very purpose in the future. It was pretty smooth, so I used the Liquid Greenstuff trick to give it just a little bit of texture, and painted it up quick and easy, with a little bit of both dirt and moss/mold as well as some faded bloodstains in the central channels. Reiksgard Knight provides us with scale, and we’re done!

Mantic Terrain Crate Temple: Fountain

Another quick one today – and another pair of terrain bits I started just before last month’s Terrain Challenge by Dave Stone concluded – but completed a little late, in the first days of this month – a pair of Fountains from Mantic’s Terrain Crate Temple set. (And yes, I got two of the sets). I was originally going to paint them differently, but decided to go identical so they can easily be used on the same table. These will be pretty versatile – they work for historicals, fantasy, moderns, and sci-fi – as our lovely spokemodels here illustrate. Hell, I could even see these in a trashed urban area in something like Fallout 3 or 4….

Two posts in the same day? Yeah, I don’t like doing it this way, but I want to catch up rather than have the September posts run halfway through October (like August did to September). As it is, there’ll still be a few into October. Why not combine lots of stuff into fewer posts? I used to do that, but I like each thing to have its own post mostly because it makes things a ton easier for me when I go back looking for specific posts and/or models, so I’ll combine stuff from the same lines or that work thematically closely, but these fountains don’t play well with the mechanical whatsit from the previous post, so they each get their own…
