For my first time in the contest I decided to make a kind of infested or broken down marine temple. I am using only household items (cardboard etc, as that is all I have!)
I started by dividing cardboard into sections, and cutting it into tiles
Using a coathanger, I made pieces of wire, then stuck together some Styrofoam (don't worry, I will use the coat hanger for more than interior stability!)
Time for the Imperial Aquila!
Next, I cut the base:
Ah, beloved cereal boxes...
I glue cardboard on top of the Styrofoam, then glue down the tiles:
My work so far:

Thats real nice man, the cuts on the eagle are well done, I can't cut out shapes to save my life!
okay...this thing.....is awesome..
I love the bent and broken rebar, and the cardboardtiling on the floor......beautiful.
The eagle is better than mine...man kudos man..
Rome wasn't built in a day, Either should good scenery.
Yeah hes done a good job, if he paints as well as hes made it, then he will be getting a vote from me!
Damn! This is looking awesome. I'm going to have to step up on my Firing Platform if I want to have a chance.
Okay. After a busy weekend, I finally have time to post my progress. First of all, I tiled the two broken pieces of floor and lined the with cereal box cardboard to keep the styrofoam from melting again.
Next, I got my trusty flock (rocks picked up from the road and parking lots!) and added the final touches before painting. I also filled in the little cracks in the middle, around the eagle, so the whole floor is completely tiled.
It is now ready for painting!
that is seriously wicked! Did you enter in beginers or veteran? Cos you could probably win both with that haha!
Well I finally got to painting. So far, only the walls are painted. I started by painting it all black (using cheap acrylic paint, not expensive GW stuff, of course!). And it looked awful. Then, as I was despairing, I decided to drybrush it light brown. And it made a huge diference. I also painted the broken rebar boltgun metal and the eagle gold. So without further adue, Painting Part 1:
