I bought a box of 6mm scenery. The buildings are pretty rough, even crude by today's standards, but certainly serviceable. But of these a few are so poorly cast I'd almost rather bin them. But waste not want not.

I drilled a hole in them and made a kebab of clump foliage. Gave it a heavy coat of gray spray paint, then some black wash. I'll add flames and a dry brush of light gray, as well as painting the building bits.

Effective use of scrap buildings.

Great idea and great use of what would have been landfill.

Excellent visual aid for "the feel" of the battlefield drama.

Looking good to me.

Polyfill also works well.

Decided to base them and add gardens etc. to make them into little vignettes. WIP
