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.
