After making buildings, adding a balcony and fire escapes to the buildings to add new variety. Its time to add more variety on your building by adding a window. Whether a plain window or a broken window it adds beauty to your warhammer terrain. Not just in buildings but with all your warhammer terrain, nothing is as realistic as broken windows on your buildings so that it will not look like an empty building. A shards of glass to slick up your not so special building. Just kidding, we know for sure that everything we make or create is special. Now for our article for today we gonna make broken windows for your warhammer building. We gonna tackle and learn tips and tricks on how to install broken windows to the buildings. Its pretty sure that we gonna finish this project in less than an hour. So get ready to add new twist on your warhammer terrain.

Materials List

utility knife

plastic packaging (the hard thin plastic from various products)

PVA glue (white glue)

foam board

Step 1 Cut Plastic

Instead of using a real glass for our windows, its better to use a hard thin plastic that come from various products to prevent us form getting wounded by the glass fragments. By using also plastic materials we can easily cut it according on what we wanted to. The best place to cut your hard thin plastic is on something that is hard such a piece of board or wood. That way you won't destroy the table the you' re working on. It just a matter of cutting and fitting pieces of plastic.

Step 2 Prepare walls

When you are using a foam board as your walls, you will need to prepare the wall for your windows. You will do this by slicing in behind the surface of your external wall. So that you will only insert the plastic you've just cut later. This will save you some precious time in doing this project. This method does not apply for foam board only but it also applies to any other material you use to be your wall.

Step 3 Insert windows

After you prepared the walls, its time to attach the windows. Simply place the windows inside the walls. There is a best way where in windows can use the walls as a support by making the windows a little bigger than the walls.

After you attach the windows you can glue the edges of the windows on the walls. But you may choose also not to glue them. For this project only we prefer not to glue because it allows for flexible changes in the future.

Now that your windows are already attached on the walls. Its time to add some variety into it, you can add bullet holes in your windows, do this by cutting out a small hole then slicing away from the hole. Actually you can add anything you want to add more spice on your terrain.

There you have it a better new look on windows on your warhammer building. Enjoy!!!
