Hi guys.
To take my mind out of my bug projects or the stressing Phantom titan blog I decided to try out diferent materials and started a project.

So I scratchbuilted a Plinth and made a terrain piece for my MERCS miniatures warband... In the process I tried and learned a bit how to work with plaster... Im a fan of plaster now! never imagined it was so much fun and easy to work with... saved me a ton of euros if i was getting a huge wood plinth from normal online stores.

I used plaster for the most part, made some moulds for plint cilinder and scratch it all out like a mad man, then used plasticard, wire meshes, plastic kit from hexagon and tons of random bits and pieces... and this is what i have got.
This plinth will accommodate 5 MERCS miniatures... sniper will be on top of plataform and heavy dude near bullets on the ground.

Very cool, all of the bits look good together, love to see it painted!
I agree plaster is very cool to work with, battle damage is so easy to do!
