Armies on Parade 2

Welcome back to my Armies on Parade WIP.

As you know i really didnt plan on doing anything for this, but changed  my mind spur of the moment and decided to bash it out.
Below is my progress, and as  you will see im more just finding my way around the board so not a lot is secured to the board yet apart from the main concourse

 I picked up the Basilica Administratum kit from Tabletop Tyrant in Leicester an will utilize this as a Shrine/Temple building in the corner with a long concourse leading up to it

I needed some steps leading up to the main door (as you do)

I will be building out the sides of the building by about 2 inches, And where you see the pipe sticking out (i may lower it) i will have an industrial type building (part of one) just so i can have a little water feature. 

Sorry about the pick i was to lazy to edit it. But as you can see it will be at the top of the main building not sure if i have finished the detail on this might spray it and then go back if i think it needs more. (gotta love instant mold, i made ten of these greenstuff icons)

What we have here is the main building that just needs extending slightly either side and also ive started building up the rockface on the left using cork and filler (i would have just used filler but too heavy overall) still not sure of the skulls yet but thats mainly because my eye is being drawn too, it may not be a problem when sprayed and painted, this will be part of a ruined building built on top of the carved rockface.
Ive built up the concourse and most likly will line the edges with lamps/street lights and flags/icons may also have a small parade ground to the left or maybe a death camp type stucture for those damn imperials.

So ive still got a fair bit to do but i can finally see some progress in the near future, too be honest i cant wait to get this finished and painted (oh the water is a fair while off need to start experimenting with 2 part resin too try and get a nice clear finish for the water which will be about 3 inches deep in the deepest part (any suggestions what i could use would be great) )  so i can crack on with the actual models.

See you soon


  1. Looking good mate. Have you looked into FLORISTS water? Its a clear resin. If careful you can blow bubbles in it mate.

  2. florists water???? never heard of it but sounds like what im after, where can you get it (florist)

  3. Hobbycraft mate. It sets crystal clear and fairly hard too. So if you want to detail things under the water( Or suspend things in it) they will show through nicely.
