Pumpkin stems make thick, stubby growths into a weird looking woods with no leaves. Dried, they last forever. Key: get 'em while they're available.

Love this thread, have some dollar store potpourri too to work into some sci-fi terrain eventually.

I'll also added dried grape stems can be useful, probably best for 15mm and smaller as blasted stumps or weird trees, but could probably make good bramble for 28mm.

Such grape stems are also useful (individually) as torches. Can be glued into open hands of rampaging mobs of townsfolk hunting werewolves etc.

Once again, excellent. Some great ideas, the wall plugs could almost be some form of robot, half a dozen of them would be formidable opponents.

A broken poundland helicopter  found in grandson's toybox clearance and donated because Grandad can use it.  So grandad fixed to a base and added DAS air drying clay and a couple of stones to hide all the broken bits (motor, wheels and the missing skid.





Some paint, flock and tufts later:

Fantastic. Love the rotors and the way the windows are painted.

I liked the paint job, the bent and cranked rotors, and the crud on the chin of the wreck.
Couple of questions...
Is the model to scale with 28mm figs?
What scenarios do you envision with this model?
Will it be an objective or just some eye candy wreckage?
