I bought 6 destroyed foamcard buildings from Gamecraft Miniatures when I had ordered two of their excellent factory buildings. They come flat packed and only require minimal assembly using PVA or white glue. The foamcard has been cut with a laser cutter and are crisp and accurate. They also do a fantastic bridge that is perfect for your Zverograd harbour table.
Many people would assemble and then spray these and be very happy with the result however I like a little more detail.
Flat pack foamcard buildings after being glued together (usually 2 -4 pieces).
The first thing I did when the building were dry was to add a few floors to each building all roughly cut from MDF.
The addition of floors give your buildings extra places to put your troops and now you have coolsniper-positions for your forces. I like to add a few other details to give the buildings a better look. I do not add too many extras as these are pieces I game with and need to survive a trip in the car down to my local club. I used some thick cardboard strips to add outline to the building.
As you can see just a little extra work starts to really bring the building together. I am going to cover the outside of my buildings with a mix I use for modelling to add texture. The mix is made from tiling grout mixed with PVA or white glue. The grout has a rough texture as you can see below.
The grey area is the tiling grout mix going on. When the mix is dry it provides an excellent rough finish which takes a dry brush very well. I like using foamcard as I can scribe details upon the walls. below you see some bricks simply drawn on and when surrounded with the tiling mix they will provide detail and extra colour.
I will finish this building over the weekend and I will show how I went about painting it.
