I can’t believe it’s not Buddha

Another of the coaster scenics is finished so three cheers for me. This one features a Buddha head from one of those out of town retail bunkers identical to the one Mike Awdry picked up to do similar with.

The stonework is made from pink foam, the vine from embroidery thread, the bamboo from satay sticks and the ivy from one of those over priced Army Painter boxes. A bit of spagnum moss has been jammed into crevices and a bit of a couple of types of flock scattered around. The most complex piece being the creeping vine, and a how-to for this can be read right here.

This will only take a couple of, or three at a push, figures and quite snugly too. You can see one of my great Pulp Figure Sikhs keeping watch in these pictures,  handily justifying my colour scheme for the blighters.

The other coaster scenics can be seen here, and here. There’s at least one more of these to come, so keep ’em peeled game chums.

    Love it! Great work Phil, the vines are brilliant and really set the piece off. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with next.
