Post Apocalyptic Corner Ruins.


Following on from last years Across the Dead Earth Facebook Groups Post Apocalyptic Terrain building competition. We all pooled ideas together and decided to have another one. Though a bit smaller this time. Rules for this one were easy.

No bigger than a CD sized base (or CD square case).

A piece of scatter terrain.

No commercially bought kits.

So being quite pleased with my previous large building I did. I decided to make some corner ruins. Four of them to be exact as I want to get a good deal of terrain made.

Anyway here is my entry to the Facebook competition and Corner Ruin no.1















Ruin no.2




Made a slight booboo with the door way. I measured it with a figure but after adding the scatter of rubble through the doorway the base no longer fits under it.......whoops.

Ruin no.3







Ruin No.4

  1. Some fine looking terrain, Simon. I think it's a brilliant idea to use a standard sized footprint for terrain - particularly in skirmish games. I can see this size (CD) being beneficial to something like Lion Rampant with the movement being restricted as it is by keeping a 3" distance between each unit. Nice idea!

  7. As I said on the FB group Simon, you're producing some terrific stuff at the moment, both minis and scenery. Definitely an inspiration for all things "AtDE".

  12. Nice work Simon. It reminded me of this graffiti => https://www.facebook.com/grammarly/photos/a.158139670871698.33824.139729956046003/974993182519672/?type=1
    Having worked as an editor before, I found it to be hilarious.

    1. Thanks mate. I'm really please as well with how they have turned out. I also might have a stab at some more taller buildings but with a smaller foot print than the previous one.
