This is not my idea; I saw someone else's project online a while back, and ever since I've been looking for an opportunity to try it. Then I was with a friend recently who was punching out the counters for his newly purchased copy of the Congo ruleset, and I asked if I could have the remaining cardboard frame left after all the counters are punched out. I then cut the frames into sections to look like partially destroyed walls, and glued them on to 6" x 6" cork bases. Next, I'll be adding some detail bits, an then spraying on a base coat.
So got my Kickstarter stuff a few weeks ago. While most of the vampire stuff is still in the baggies, I emptied all the small cardboard boxes that the paints and a few of the minis came in. After I had dry fit all my dragons and Cthulhu I was pondering what to paint first. Then it hit me, I could use the boxes as Quonset hut style buildings for modern or scifi terrain. Sprayed them down with brown primer as I planned on doing a little rusted metal effect to them. Also marked lines on the roof to ad some detail. Grabbed some black puff paint left over from another project to add some 3D roof seams. At first I was upset my unsteady hands made the lines uneven but then I remembered that tar seals are anything but even. So instead of overlapping sheet-metal seams, they are tar seams. White stuff is salt for the rusted metal effect. For step by step instructions follow the link in my signature. Don't have any pictures yet but the roofs are chrome. I'm now accepting suggestions as to wall color. Right now I've got grey, olive or brown. Don't want to go camo as it would contradict the shiny chrome roof.
