A bit more progress with my $25 terrain challenge. I've built the stairs for the ruin. And by built, I mean I've cut out the pieces, and still need to scribe them before glueing them together.
Playing around with some scraps I came up with this. Also not glued together... I'm thinking about how to put it together... 3 independent pieces about an inch or so apart? Some sort of ring? A pillar? Or maybe a small gap that would provide line of sight, but block movement?
And finally I've started priming the huts. Next will be a midnight/navy blue. I've used up one bottle of Slate already... and well on the way to another. I'm going to need more once I start painting the bigger pieces.
