Rotten City Ruins
Posted: 17. 11. 2021.
Rotten Factory are celebrating their five years in business with a new crowdfunding campaign. They have many characterful resin minis on offer, new and old, but my main interest is a product they haven't had before: silicone moulds for pouring plaster terrain elements, which can then be put together in a variety of ways to create buildings. Pawel was kind enough to send me a box of test plaster casts, and I used them to make a few stone ruins that will serve as scenery for my miniature photography. Those are some lovely stone walls and arches, but there are also a bunch of elements I didn't use in this project: like roof sections, stone floor, wooden beams and plastered walls. If you have a look at the campaign page you can see the half timbered house Pawel built - it's something that would fit perfectly in Mordheim or Frostgrave. I'll be casting a lot more stuff from the moulds when I receive them after the Kickstarter campaign.
Bare plaster ruins. I put them on simple paper bases, which will be hidden in the scenic photos. A handful of loose stones made of styrene and minaiture clay bricks were added, just to give it all a more ruined look.
The last one is a little bit more adventurous: an alien portal. This one is for a sci-fi setting and photo setup I'm currently developing behind the scenes.
Great paintjob on those!
Paper base? Brave but interesting!
Particularly the Red Portal is cool and sufficiently alien!
