Dragons Don’t Share Ruined Tower: Bones II Terrain Piece

Chris Palmer

   This week I finally finished up the ruined tower from the Dragons Don’t Share (DDS) add-on set.
I had originally boiled the DDS pieces back in September of last year to get the bent ones back in shape.  I have then been working on them here and there over the past nine months, and finally finished them up this week.

Even with boiling, I needed to clamp the two parts of the tower upper story when I glued them (using Gorilla Superglue) together to help make them align properly.

  Also, I had decided I strictly wanted to use this set for terrain, so I used Milliput to fill in the holes on the piece that the dragon is supposed to mount on.

   I also decided to glue the top story to the bottom of the tower, just so the pieces wouldn’t be slipping and falling during game play.  I figured there was enough opening to move figures around inside if they should enter.

   I used Deco Art Traditions Artists Acrylic “"Dark Grey, Value 3” to base coat the pieces.

    The little step piece was my guinea pig piece, and I had actually started working on it back last Fall.  I had tried a couple different base coats on it before landing on the one I used.  After the base coat was applied, I gave the pieces a wash with GW “Nuln Oil” wash using a wet brush.  When the wash was dry, I drybrushed with Crafter’s Acrylic “Storm Cloud Grey” first, and then Folk Art “Platinum Grey” second.

     I then gave the pieces a coat of Ceramcoat “Matte Varnish”.   When the varnish was dry,  I sprayed the pieces with Testor’s Dullcote.
   Here is the finished set, shown with the Female Elf Rogue figure that comes with it, to give a sense of scale.

     I’m really happy with how it came out. It’s a real testament to the sculpting that it looks so good with just a ink wash and drybrushing paint job.
