Fountain part 1

Im back again this time with a different piece.Iv decided to put the market stalls on hold as i want to see how my test piece looks with a lick of paint.Just to make sure im 100 per cent happy before continuing on.

In the meantime i decided to start working on the centerpiece for the market i needed a rough idea of how much space id have to play around with.Since Mordheim is played on a smaller 4x4 surface.Il be building seperate 1x1 tiles that i can swap in and out to keep the gaming surface varied.I wanted to make sure the entirety of the market fit within the designated 1x1 square.

So for the base of the fountain i used some basic items i found lying around the house.the main body was built from a lid from and old coffee jar which i weathered with knife to add some damage.i then took a smaller lid this time from a soft drink bottle and glued it down within the centre of the first lid

I wasnt entirely happy with the height of the central platform.So i decided to build a pillar from bricks i made with some cut up sprue to add some extra height.As it started to take shape i began to pack the bricks more loosely along the outside to make it look as if the pillar was slowly collapsing on itself.Before adding the griffon with the flag post from the fortified manor kit as the ornament.I finished with some sand and sprue rubble to the floor of the fountain and the edges of the collapsing pillar.

I then glued the main structure to a blank cd as a base.Using more sprue bricks as cobblestone paving.I deliberately left some gaps at this stage so i could add some sand and rubble to fill in areas where the paving has been damaged and worn away.

Iv included some shots i took along the way to show how it all came together.This is all from this piece for now.Il likely be adding some more debris and other details from my bits box to the base before.i touch up the sand on move on to the paint work and water effects for inside the fountain
