Well a wet weekend has seen me crack on with a project I have been planning for a little while. If you are going to play Empire of the Dead, then it makes sense to have a graveyard as a scenic item! Somewhere for those zombies to come from! This is what I managed this weekend.
I know it looks a little out of alignment, but I have just put the railing sections in place for you to get the idea of how it will end up. They still need trimming to fit properly and glue into place, but I want to paint the walls before I do that.
The walls are made from 5mm depron foam, two sheets together to give greater thickness to walls. The railings are from a Chinese based ebay trader that does railway scenics, sold in 1m strips. The gravestones are the Rendra plastics set. They are on lolly sticks at the moment for ease of handling and painting, but I will stick them down in rows once ready to go.
A pic with a gentleman for scale.
I have left enough mdf base around the outside of wall to act as a pavement.
I just have to decide what colour to paint the walls and mortar...
My order of Westwind background figures arrived over the weekend too; bobbies, inspectors, strumpets, civilians, thugs, London gents, and The Ripper! Looking forward to cracking on with these figures :-)
