With Fort Grayskull finally finished I thought that I would put up shots of the finished elements. The photos could be better (there is a bit of fish eye going on because I forgot to change the macro setting on the camera), but they should illustrate adequately.
Note the banner on the top right of the picture above. Its the back banner from the first ork warboss that I painted back in 1990 or so. As it seemed appropriate and fun for the model I added a little piece of plastic tubing to the side of that tower to accommodate banner poles to suit whatever setting or faction that I am using the piece for.
This wall section had some sorf of face sculpted onto it by a friend of mine back in 2001. I suppose that a fortress such as this would have had many inhabitants over its lifetime in the post apocalyptic wilderness. Some of them may have had a reason to carve a face into the wall I guess.
The fort was a big, quite tedious project for me that involved a lot of repetitive assembly line labour. While I know that I could put some more work into the fort to make it more convincing, I wont be doing it any time soon. I do think that some of the companion pieces to go with this terrain should help to give it context and make it a little more authentic with a bit of luck.
My next (and related) terrain project is a shanty town suitable for post-apoc gaming, for gaming the slummier parts of Mega City One and for the vague possibility of gaming District 9. I hope that the fortress above will look a little more convincing when placed in context with some of the terrain from that.
In the meanwhile here is a shot of some the fort parts being used to represent the post apocalyptic walled town of Standard Falls whilst under siege from zombies.
