Alien perfume monolith

My daughter was going to throw away an empty bottle of Thierry Mugler Alien but I managed to snatch it before it reached the bin.

Look at that thing! It’s an amazing design and I thought I could do something with it.

I thought I could put it on a base and create something to use as scenery for Warhammer, Gaslands or any other tabletop game. I washed it down and buffed off the lettering on the front before sticking it to a chunk of wood.

Sadly, I didn’t take many pictures of it being made but I basically chopped up a base, covered it on filler and rocks to make a rough base then hit the whole thing with black primer.

To get some colours down, I sprayed the whole thing with a series of lighter colours. Once dried it was weathered with inks and powders. The base was covered in flock, moss and some skulls from the GW skull pack. A Christmas pressie from my daughter, she basically supplied a lot of the part for this in the end.

I think the final piece looks suitable for some monolith from a long lost Xeno species in 40k. It will also work as a place of worship for a chaos tribe in AoS or Warhammer Fantasy.

Not bad for an empty Alien perfume bottle.
