Malifaux Terrain: The Mansion Part 3
I always go to my standard solution when things are looking bad- the humble card strip. I took a sheet of paperboard and marked it off in 3/8" lines.
If you are attempting a project like this, take necessary precautions, namely: use a sharp knife, lay out sheets of cardboard to protect your desk, and keep all your cereal boxes so the evil recycling fairy doesn't take them away.
Also measure and cut carefully. That is important.
This tower took me quite a while to finish since there were a lot of small pieces to cut out around the windows.
I briefly considered using balsa wood for this project, but there are a lot of places where the siding needs to bend. Also, it would have likely been too thick. I am going to paint the thing anyway, so card was my best option.
The round tower will get some kind of stone treatment. Not quite sure what it will look like, but perhaps I think of something later.
Now I only have the two main floors to go. Wish me luck!
