Items I will use:
Old CD bases
Glue gun and sticks
Apple Barrel Paints
I also bought a pack of the dead farm animals from Warlord Games and made a rubber cast using a kit I bought a few months back. Overall it worked ok except some of the legs didn't cast very well, but on the other hand as they was near where an artillery shell I would not be shocked if they didn't lose a limb or two from the blast of a shell going off near it. My wife thinks I am weird but hey it was what happened back then.
I took a CD base and figured out how to lay the animals around the edge and then I estimated how big the shell hole was to be. I made sure you could place one figure inside the shell hole as well. Once I had the circle done I repeated this until I was out of sculpty.
Example of a figure in the middle.
Dead animals around the edges.
Bakers dozen scenery!
After they cooled down I will glue them to the CD base with a hot glue gun. Sty tuned for part 2!
