Ghost Archipelago Parapet Markers

Recommended Posts

The club's next Ghost Archipelago campaign starts this coming Saturday, so I am taking advantage of the day off to make sure that I am ready.  We are starting with new crews, and my new spell caster (warden) has a spell to create a little piece of blocking terrain, so I decided that I had better make a few today.  I am hoping/expecting that 6 of them should be enough. The parapet is supposed to be 2" long and a half inch high, so I pulled out some 50mm cavalry bases to stack stones on.  

 

Step One:

 

Glue on stones and wait for things to dry.

Drybrushed and sand added around the edges...last stop, grass...

 

...some moss on the stones would add interest & a splash of color.

That’s true. Would you do that with fine flock and glue, or with paint?

I us fine flock from Woodland Scenics or, lately, Green Scene Scenery from Scenic Express. Normally I stick it on with hot glue then do another partial layer with crazy style glue.

I paint mine in progressively brighter shades of green, but I am a fanatic.

RE: Malefactus's idea: I sometimes use some old dark-green coat thread (frayable to make branching "limbs") in combination with flocking, for a suggestion of creeping vines.

Agreed with the above--fine flock for moss, but if you want to make it look like lichen, paint is good for that.

My SO's observation on this is that it's odd that you have to paint real rocks to make them LOOK like rocks...

The "real" thing rarely translates as realistic in miniature

Funny, isn't it? 

 

Rocks look good though!
