    Here’s what I’ve been experimenting with, I discussed this over Hobby Hangout in more detail.

    Lance-1

    Lance-2

    After cutting the expanding foam into shapes I wanted for the overhanging rocks and scatter, I moulded around the gaps and base with some generic cheap grout filler mixed with some water. I followed The Terrain Tutor’s guide on this.

    Priming it with a deep red/brown paint I covered the entire piece with PVA before drybrushing on a midtone of orange and highlighting with some creams and olive green paints. Nothing was branded so I can’t give exact paint schemes.

    I plan to make a few more of these, my original idea was to make a stone henge piece for something I can place my Twilight pieces on.

    Nice! What have you used for the orange and green lichen?

    Are we going to see a “foot on rock” hero on this? 🙂

    They look really nice!   Aren’t you going to get in trouble though, for posting this in the forum rather than as a project?   We want to see you make these from start to finish!

    @angelicdespot The forums need some love too. I may make a project for the bigger piece I have in mind.

    These look great!  Seemingly so simple too

    I also wonder how sturdy these are? I’m in the middle of sculpting a Rouge Idol over on projects and this could be a quicker version if I do another one

    You think they’d hold together in a sculpt?

    @teddymademedoit I think it would hold up, you could also pin them with skewers before adding the filler. I’d recommend trying it as it’s quite cheap and a simple process.
