I wanted to make some portals for wargaming - be it D&D or Warhammer, I thought it would be a neat idea to not just have standing stones, but an actual "open" portal within standing stones.
I began with pink insulation foam, carved with my utility knife.
I created a "energy" sort of thing using hot glue (tutorial will be posted shortly)
Assembly of the standing stones and texture.
Cut the hot glue to scale
For one of the portals, I carved into the "stone" to make it look more sinister.
Painting the lines red, then covering in black.
Then various shades of grey...
Painted the base and the portal itself - the portal is also painted with glow in the dark paint for effect while gaming.
Ready for flocking...
