More scenery

I've gotten my mittens on some more of the old WHFB scenery, and they are indeed beautiful kits. However, I've gotten quite a few of the old Chapels (bought as fortified manors - hence the watchtowers I've also got), and I thought it would be boring to just have duplicate manors or chapels - so I've bashed them together to make a fortress of some sort. I've used more pet shop cork bark for the cliffs and rocks, and used some walls to make the walkway and the walls for the tower. I think it works pretty well, although it obviously needs quite a bit of detailing:

I've used a piece of the Garden of Morr as an outhang for one of the buildings - I obviously need to something with it. Also some supports for the other outhangs too.

I'll lay some wood planks on the walkway and the tower floor:

I've also managed to grab a completely mint (still foil on the box) Dreadstone Blight, one of my favourite pieces, and promptly got it assembled (still needs the top floor). I doubt I'll do any converting to this one - I really like it as is - although it will get a nice base:


  1. As much as I do love GW's newer scenery, I have to say, it's a bit disappointing that some of the older stuff is so hard to get hold of. Even on their own, they're pretty great (as you say, the Dreadstone Blight is an amazing piece with just a plain build by the instructions), and your stronghold there shows how much more so they can become when you start thinking outside the box.

  2. What material are you using for the random-shaped "blobs" for basing the scenery? Is it MDF?
