More Ruination

The thing about skirmish games I've found is that you never have enough cover for your troops when attacking. So to supplement my urban ruins for the Stalingrad, etc. the need for additional rubble piles are constant. Here I am again making a few more.  I've learned a few things from my earlier forays to short cut and get better results.  
(click on the pix to enlarge)
Raw materials: standard blue (or pink) insulating foam and packing foam from appliance boxes 
Rubble mix: cat litter and lizard litter. Incidentally, cat litter is a friable material and can be bashed with a hammer for the random sized look. Simply place a scoop (3-4 Tablespoons) in a zip lock bag, bleed out the air and start bashing. Result: powder, granules and aggregate in differing sizes. 
Completed wall sections using scrap foam pieces on foam base with white glue.
The all important prep step using sprayed on water.
Flocked w/ rubble mix, water downed white glue and repeated spraying in between applications 

Coming up: color application, painting and drybrushing.
