Beginning of the Shanty Town

As always, my modelling attention deficit disorder kicked in and I found myself building some scavenged shanty town buildings! 
It still needs sand/gravel on the base and obviously needs painting, but I reckon it's decent for the first effort! I built a box (well...four walls) out of foamboard and used dressmakers pins and hot glue to hold it together. The front door is from the Cities of Death kits.
I used scissors to cut up some sheets of corrugated card (purchased in Wilkinsons) and used various bits from the MASSIVE BOX OF TERRAIN-RELATED JUNK that can be found under my bed. I rather like the patchwork effect!
I also used some I beam plasticard for support pillars on the dwelling and some road signs from a construction vehicle set.

A couple of action figure pieces (robotic arms) were added on the roof - this would probably be home to a mechanic of some sort...

Let me know what you think! I've spent most of the evening carving up some bases for the next buildings that I'll be making.


  1. I like it! Looking really ramshackle!

  2. That looks pretty awesome! Can't wait to see it painted!

  3. haha, I love the little couch out front.
