Thanks guys !! Made a dark territory out of 2 modules, partly painted with a dark black/brown base coat, also tried to fill the gaps between the modules, want them as tight as possible..





Also made a start on the coastal rocks, aluminium foil method as usual. Bit worked on after removing the foil..weapons of choice..



Result till now, not painted..

Finished rocking up the coast on 2 of the 4 modules..



Reminded me of a discussion I had a while ago about the use of aluminiumfoil for rockmoulds. He told me at that time that it's always visible that you use the foil. I told him I wasn't done with exploring the possibilities using the foil combined with a few other techniques..this is where I'm at now just using foil, steelbrush, dentalpick and sometimes a chissle...





Must say that I'm pretty pleased with the result untill now, but thers more to explore..

I agree. Your aluminium molded rocks are the best I've seen. I had already told you that for the rocks in the other room and it's even more evident here.
