Wow, I absolutely love what you did there!!!

A little graffiti here or there, or a few stickers or posters, and the mood will be complete.

Patches of paint residue would show that the sheets and other building materials came from various sources, or that the residents attempted to "beautify" the shanty.

Very nice work Shedman
Favelas, District 9, etc
Are the roofs removable ?
What Dan suggests is a good idea.

Sorry, can't do a 'thumbs up' to save my life. ;->=

Still, the thought, and all that, ol' bean.

Thanks chaps

The buildings are solid resin – I'll have a word with Shaun to see about the roof but looking at them I don't think it would be easy

We have done District 9 in 15mm using Bolt Action – it's probsbly time to get it out again

That's why they look so "solid" then,I thought they were card scratchbuilds. As I said before they're great models.
I suppose one can use counters to note that minis are inside.

It will be nigh impossible to remove the roof from solid resin or too much work to bother doing it.

That's why I use exp.poly & card roofs on mine.( see my other post )

The masters were card scratchbuilds.

Here is some of Rodge's other stuff – all done in card / fomaboard

And a link to more photos

Some great inspiration for shantytown.
