The lost fortress wall.

Hello and welcome back.

Nearly 10 years back I decided to build my fortress walls. See this post for details of the original build.

A few months back I was doing a bit of tidying and discovered one of the wall sections of the fortress had fallen behind a bookcase. There it sat all white, unprimed and unloved staring sadly at it’s painted unforgotten brethren. So a couple of weeks back I decided to finish it. 

This bit of wall was intended to look like the concrete slabs had been salvaged from a building. I thought his section would not have a walkway. I hope to make a scrap bridge to reach across this bit of wall. I added some details, primed it and gave it a couple of coats of textured paint. It then got a coat of light grey, which I then dry brushed white. 

The metal got a few shades of brown & orange added, A few brown washes and orange streaks did the weathering. 

A few bits of graffiti and some plant tufts to finish. 

Now it sits happily with it’s brethren on the shelf.

Thanks for looking and stay safe out there.

  1. Nice! It's really atmospherical, the graffiti and the weathering make the piece very realistic, I love it.
