Old Collectable to Functional Terrain

A few years back these cold cast statues were released for Warhammer 40K.  I bought two, one of the Firewarrior and the other a Space Marine.  During a recent foray into some storage boxes, I found the Space his base and busted.  Seems that was one of the boxes that got dropped during a move.  It happens and isn't the end as I'm well versed in the repair of fragile collectibles.  As I worked on the statuette, I got an idea: why not convert it to terrain. GW has released several monument styled models for use in Imperial settings, this statuette is just the right for that job.  So, with a few rough ideas, materials and a handful of hours, I was able to produce this monument to the tactical marine.
