WIP: Necromunda Terrain Part 1

“Mini” Project

As I’m off for a fortnight, I wanted to take advantage of the free time to move some hobby projects along.  As I’m focusing on technique and painting skill improvement with the minotaur, I wanted to have another project on the go that meant I could be a little looser with my approach, and be a little less worried about accuracy and detail.   The perfect subject for this would be some terrain / scenery, where a looser style would actually work better for my purposes…

I mentioned in my previous post that I wasn’t happy with the filling of the gaps at the elbow joins, and that I was tempted to file it back and re-prime.  That was a bit extreme considering the work already gone into the model, so I came up with an alternative…
