Apocalypse Explosions

So in the apocalyspe book there are they big explosions.

How do you think they made them???

See page 9 and page 22.

Is that like spray on insulation or something?

Pete:
One method I have used is to super-glue that foliage clump stuff (the kind model railroaders etc. apply to trees to create "foliage") to wires, spraypaint it black, then gentle dry brush it in shades of gray and (near the base) reds and oranges.

That process creates something like:

I don't have the Apoc book with me right now, but IIRC, they did something like that there.

Chris! Hope you and other Lost Legionnaires have survived the implosion of Danger Planet.
