How to Build Miniature Ruins Step 1: Getting What You Need

If you don't want to watch the video read on.

 So today I am going to tell you what you need to make a miniature ruin. First you need to get some paint brushes, get a fine tip paint brush that is still a bit thick, get a medium sized paint brush, and a large paint brush. 

  On to the paints, you need to get 4 main colours, white, black, dark brown, and mustardish. There are several other colours, yellow, blue, green, red, and orange are the ones you need, try to get at least two shades of this colour.
  A bubbly type of foam is required, as you can just use your fingers to shape the ruin out. 

  Always remember, be resource full, and never buy miniature ruins.

Miniature Wargaming Ruin

This is a ruin that I made of cheap styrofoam. This was relatively easy to make and took me about one hour thirty minutes to make. It does look pretty realistic.
Although this was primarily a ww2 war-game ruin, it can be used in Warhammer. So how I made it was I took the styrofoam out of a box and used my fingers to break off some of the wall, so it looked like it was ruined, then I used my knife to cut some chunks out. I used light brown and white for the outside, and dark brown with white, or green for the interior. For the floor I used black and white, with watery light brown.
