So quite a big update on the Volcano.
The previous post for this build can be found here
So first up I had to finish cladding this beast. In the end I used two whole tubes of cork bark. Total cost about £18.
You can see in the picture below I am trying to step the volcano to allow for at least some playability
Eventually with all the cork bark fixed I could fill and cover the exposed polystyrene areas. I added black acrylic paint to the filler to give it a grey colour.
I left one small area of the base exposed for a temple entrance...
I needed to build the crown of the volcano, scratching my head for ideas I game up with this option.
A circle of hardboard (roughly the size of the summit)...
then I fixed a piece of polystyrene on top with adhesive and one dry used the trusty foam cutting jig to make the crown.
This was then glued to the summit. I began playing around with some lighting affects
Whilst waiting for the frown to dry I glued in the temple entrance at the bottom of the mountain. This is an Egyptian tomb entrance sourced from Scotia Grendel - link below
The entrance was then built up using filler and odd pieces of cork.
Elsewhere I finished off the filling around the rest of the mountain. Black paint was added to the white filler hence the grey effect.
I then turned my attention to the summit and built this up with filler.
Still loads more to go ...
