Jungle-engulfed Car

Hey folks,

I wanted to show off my nearly finished with my jungle overgrown car.




This was made from a used die cast car that had no rubber on its wheels. A bit of hammering bent it out of shape and a base coating of textured rusty red paint made I took old and junked. Various decorative plants and modelling foliage buried in the thick of the jungle.

The two sides are very different with the right side of the vehicle being much more open than the left. This will allow figures to use it for cover and for objective markers to be placed inside.
The addition of the colorful jungle flowers to the protruding vines was both an expedient way go tame some uncooperative parts and add extra character to the piece. The flowers themselves could be an objective.

Adding New Basing Materials to the Tool Kit





I picked up some of the KHG Gamer's Grass tufts from Harold over at ClearHorizon Miniatures and I am very glad I did.

I am not the sort to invest in a lot of special hobby products. I haven't even learned how to use static grass. These little gems, however, may get me to rethink my approach to hobby stuff.

These miniatures were painted and based without the Gamer's Grass but the simple addition of these little tufts to most of the bases lends so much more warmth and depth to the miniatures.

Sculpting Projects Image Dump - Sculpting Kwiell

Many of you may know of my Ikwen.- the freedom fighting, alien militia designed for scifi assymetric warfare. Well, part of the dream for this project has always been to flesh out the world of the Ikwen beyond their fighting forces. This means terrain and animals.

One way to really make a homeland fight feel real is to have local livestock. Farm animals always seem to get in the line of fire, whether as resource objectives, cannon fodder, or even obstacles for covert operations.


FARM ANIMALS

So far I have come up with a pig/sheep/goat analog I call a Silt Pig. For these I am working on a male, female, and litter of young. Because every farm needs a nuissance predator, I also created Kwiell's equivalent of a fox/coyote - the Pig Sucker.



   



PLANTS AND OTHER SCENERY

Scenery has been fun. Much of it I have taken from my existing library of sketches or from converted terrain. Using a combination of 100% sculpted and converted seed pods I have developed a host of features from the strange Shelter Tree, covered in fungus and secondary growth. Clusters of strange tube plants and geothermal vents form alien, open air reefs. Even an alien beast skull and insect hive have joined the group.
