A Little Terrain WIP

In between painting projects, I'm slowly working on building myself a table and a table's worth of matching terrain.

I'm going for sort of a Xenos, semi Tau look.  I want the terrain to look truly alien.  I'm so tired of Imperial terrain or "human hive city" terrain.

I decided to go with a sort of natural looking building with various "mushroom" looking growths.  I'll use some putty/green stuff to make it look like the pegs are growing out of the building's top.

I think it's working out pretty well so far.  The one tall one will have battlements on the top.  I still haven't quite worked out how that's going to look, but I can't imagine it will be too hard.

The white things are pieces of a gutter system for a house.  I think they make perfect sci-fi looking terrain pieces when turned upside down like this.  The wooden bits are various pegs and furniture buttons.  I still have work to do.  Mainly, I need to work out battlements and add some doors.  The doors shouldn't be too hard.  The gutter system has some end caps that I'll be using.  They're a little pricey, so I'll be using one to make a template and then just duplicating it using poster board.
