Courtesy of gravel chips off the road when the road was resealed. I swept a few plastic bags full – have enough stone chips for modelling projects for the next hundred years I think.
Balsa wood bases, stone chips glued on with PVA. When dry spray painted matt black and drybrushed with a grey, then a house paint remarkably similar in colour to GW “Bleached Bone”. Some flock and done.
I had made some stone walls ages ago but left them as natural stone – decided to try painting these ones and was glad I did. Making these reminded me that I really have to fix some fences on my actual property.

They are terrific Brian, and really look the part.
Yep, those are the dog’s whatsits Brian.
You can say it on my blog Iain 🙂
Oh my God you have patience Brian! They look fantastic!
I can appreciate the work because I did this exact thing nearly thirty years ago using pieces of red chip provided by the then Auckland City Council (that I gathered from the footpath outside the flat – at night of course so that the neighbours would not have even greater doubt about my sanity). However, I only made a few pieces, then made a mould of them…they became the masters for the thousands of pieces we sold in the Military Miniatures range in the next fifteen years!
What can I say – it does get boring living in the countryside sometimes.
