Here is my first attempt at wooden Ork scenery (or any scenery for that matter so don't judge too harshly). The tower is part of a fort wall for Planetstrike games that will ultimately consist of 4 towers (got 3 atm and local shop is out of matches ) walls and a gate all made of ordinary wooden matches (ends shaved square with scalpel), a 5mm few dowels and a small piece of chain. Tower platform 6" high and walls will have walk-able platform 3" high with climbing points onto towers. Now to the questions, I want some opinions on whether adding 'scrap metal' sheeting to the sides is a good idea or not and if so what sturdy ways are there to make scrap metal (card too soft and tin cans too sharp). Thank you in advance for any help/comments

I would definitely add some sheet metal as my first impression is that the tower was for Fantasy and not 40k, for the sheet metal I would suggest using Plasticard (sometimes called Sheet Styrene I think) as it would be sturdy enough and not have the sharp edges.
Overall though I think the piece looks really good, and with a few beat up rusted sheets of metal would look excellent, congratz
Very suitably 'Orcy' and I agree, a few metal plates here and there would bring it all together. Claudia Z has an outstanding metal plate tutorial here...

You will find all of Claudia's work magnificent....
It looks pretty flimsy to be much protection in a battlefield where lasers, plasma and high-caliber bolter shells are flying around. Then again, maybe the Orks are crazy enough not to mind that little problem.

Needs more pointy bits! And red!
All very good points and thanks for tutorial thread will upload more pics soon
many thanks to all
I like it. I'd agree with the others and add more bitz. Metal plates, skulls, banners, etc. Maybe a grot or two if they're your thing. The wood could be painted to make the grain stand out, looks kind of monocolor from what we've seen. Perhaps some different colors for the glyphs, the white doesn't stand out with the light color of the wood. Keep it up!
