    Looks nice, but if you don't mind a small suggestion ... get some MDF and make yourself a base for the piece. You can cut the MDF so that the footprint very closely matches the outline of the building and then bevel the edges with a file or rasp. This will make it a little more durable, but more importantly, it gives you a nice spot of pile rubble, some grass, things that have fallen over, etc.

    It seems that the diagonals of the piece are a bit too regular. Ruined buildings tend to come apart in chunks.

    Other than that small issue, Beautiful work. I especially love the blood-spattered window in the last pic! I am so going to steal that! I mean use it too

    A very nice terrain piece in my eyes. : ) I would second the suggestion of adding a base though, as it could improve the piece in terms of both appearance and practicality. :]

    MDF = Medium Density Fiberboard. I got a large sheet from Home Depot (you don't mention where you're from) and I cut it with a scroll saw. For reference, here's a piece I did for Iron Scenery III, where you can see what the MDF base looks like:

    Also, when making rubbled buildings, think about conservation of mass and the effect explosives have on buildings. Given all the things going on in Gaza and Iraq, there should be tons of reference photos.

    In regards to the first point, everything that gets blown up has to go somewhere, typically down or away from the blast. If a building is rubbled by a bomb falling outside, the rubble falls inwards. If it's rubbled by a bomb falling through the roof, the rubble falls down and out. Plan your rubble accordingly.

    In regards to the second point, very little shears off in nice straight lines. Walls and floors break off with jagged edges. If you're using cardboard, you can almost rip the edges instead of cutting them. If you're using something heavier, like MDF, then you can distress the edges with a file.
