Carnium City of Blood - Part 7

I have had a few hours over Christmas to work on the final piece of this giant puzzle.

As it stands now, the Imperial Forum is finished and so is the Plebian Forum, the arena and the city entrance area, so the last step is the rock-face and hill above the arena. You can check previous posts to see those area of the board.

As a reminder, the table is 6x4 which is 1/3rd larger than a standard Godslayer board, and that is because the boards are designed primarily for display and demo gaming as well as for photos.

So onto the cliff-face section...


In earlier steps I:
1. build a basis for the hill and cliffs from layers of Polyfoam insulation, glued together with wood glue.
2. Dug out holes which will form rock-face tombs.
3. With railway modelling mold, I cast sections of rock-face in plaster

4. The rock-face casts were fixed to the polyfoam, along with some bits of bark
5. pillars were cast using Hirst Arts molds.
6. I cut cornice pieces from polyfoam (that's the triangular parts above the pillars)
7. stuck the pillars and cornices into the sides of the rock tombs and painted the polyfoam with wood glue for protection. everything then got sanded, and I applied plaster on top of the sloping hillside.

8. Filled all gaps between rock sections using a plaster mixed with sand
9. Painted it all with Airfix gray undercoat

So that brings us up to date.
10. This weekend I applied a wash on the rock face

Here you can see the back of the structure:

11. sprayed the hillside brown and I added some steps. Here you can see how the rock-face integrates with the city wall pieces.

12. Drybrushed the rocks a couple of times

13. Here you can see how it currently looks situated on the table.

14. Next steps: glue the tower and wall in place, fill all gaps, flock the hill with grass and shrubs

I flocked the hill and added various vegetation.

Still a little more to do, but with a few hours work the table will be basically finished then onto airbrush detailing.

In order to keep a Mediterranean feel I used really light brown and straw colored grasses.

Basically I painted the hill brown and left to dry, then painted over with wood-glue. then I puffed on the short grass with a Woodland Scenics puffer bottle. It creates static and causes the grass to stand up. Its a lot cheaper than buying the electric tools for that.

Then I added a second patchy layer of longer (12mm) static grass. the flowers are from woodland Scenics too. the long grass is from Noch.

My inspiration for the amphitheater and the rock tombs is the ancient Greek city of Myra located in Turkey.
