This is a new terrain piece I created for A Fistful of Kung Fu.
It was made to replace the lame inverted yogurt cup I used previously.
Started with a CD-ROM base.
Glued the plastic end of a big roll of printer paper to the base.
Spray painted both black.
Cut disk to fit into cylinder top.
Used Crayola Modelling Clay to make water, about 1/4 inch thick.
Painted water with several colors of blue.
Coated water disk with Mod Podge. Almost blew it here. Should have done several coats rather than one thick one.
Planked the outside of the tank with coffee stirrers.
Cut balsa donut for top.
Planked the donut with coffee stirrers cut at a slight angle on both sides.
Hot glued the water disk into the base.
Coated the outside of the base with dried coffee grounds.
Painted the coffee grounds with browns, grays, and greens.
Glued some railroad bushes to the base.
Hot glued the top disk to the cylinder.
Sprayed with Dull Coat.
Took it out for a spin last weekend in my AFOKF game.
NO ONE GOT ON TOP OF IT!
But, I thought it was cool!
Much better than the yogurt cup!
