Instead of blogging every little update over the last 2 weeks, i just decided to press on and get the thing completed. Here are a few of the last bits that were done to complete the project.
The Pews. They're in place and washed with oil paint which has given them a really good time-weathered look. I decided to make a barricade out of the pews near the entrance of the Cathedral. A hurried defence for some beleaguered defenders!
The Alter. This was made out of left over Balsa Wood. I made the simple shape, then got a shred of old t-shirt and cut it to shape. this was then soaked in PVA glue, draped over the alter, and left to dry overnight. A quick spray of Macherite Red and a few embellishments and its done! Quick and simple.
Purity Seals. Where the prayers of the faithful are left in hope of an answer. Simply made from green stuff and strips of paper, then washed with oil paint. A nice touch i thought!
Relic. I needed to find something to fill the space at the back of the Cathedral, so a hanging Aquila Relic worked nicely. Excuse the picture - i had to shove the camera inside and try and take a picture blind! This was the best i could do! Its a bit small, but i didn''t want to make a home-made large Aquila and risk it looking a bit shoddy.
Finally, the roof! The solid roof idea was abandoned some time ago, mainly due to the irregular shape of the walls. I figured a ruined roof would save time and hastle, and enhance the playability of the piece as a whole. I've gone for 2 large ruined sections and 2 small ruined sections. I installed a plasticard base onto some plastic T-Bar and then glued plasticard tiles too it. A quick coat of Charadon Granite and an oil paint wash and its done! The T-Bar was undercoated in Scorched Brown and then attacked with some rust coloured weathering power. Where there isn't any ruined roof sections, theres a rusty T-Bar instead!
So with all those bits in place, its DONE! As much as I've enjoyed this project, I'm glad its complete. Some things can really rumble on! So what now? Well, the Space Wolves project is still in its infancy and needs a bit of attention. That will be my main priority for now. Saying that, I'll probably begin planning my next Apocalypse Terrain project: A Promethium Refinery! This project will be even larger than this one, covering a 12x6ft area!! More on that as it develops over the next few months!
