Hi there everybody!
A bit of proper background is only fair in the start of a new thread, and here it is:
Last spring we realized that our gaming club would be celebrating 20 years this year (2012) so we started to make plans. We did a bit of wrestle since we deal with most nerdy hobbies. At last we decided to make a wargaming tournament consisting of both Fantasy and 40 K. Through my day-time job I came in contact with a EU-program through which I was able to secure all the resources needed. We got the astonishing amount of 90.000 SKR from LEADER (the name of the program). This is 10 322 Euro or 12900 dollar or 8148 pounds. Finally I could put all my years of boring buerocratic writing to something useful! Of this budget roughly a fifth will be used for terrainmaking which I will present here. Sometimes in the form of stages with a somewhat of a tutorial and sometimes simply a finished piece.
We had terrain for 5 or maybe 6 tables as we begun. The tournament is planned for 80 players (40 fantasy, 40 40K) so we had around 350 pieces to be made. We wanted the terrain to be special so we decided to make a table for each army!
This was the background and if we fast forward to today we have a whole lot of terrain already built. However not as much as I would hope since the tournament is barely 2 months away.
Let me now present the artists whos work you´ll be viewing in this thread:
Kalle: Our guru, our mentor, our shining beacon of light in the darkness which we plummeted into in the beginning. A man with more than 15 years of terrainmaking in the backpack. He has proved irreplaceable since he has so many small tips and tricks which he gladly share. Unfortunatly he lives a bit off, has kids and other activites which take up most of his time, so the number of pieces made by him are quite limited. Before the project he hade single handed built all of our terrain, none of us had ever built anything.
Walle: My strong right hand. Not only is he making loads of terrain, he helps me with the economy and administration as well.
Tjalle: (Nickname for Tjarls in swedish) The mastermind, the witful overlord at the gaming club. Built my first piece in february this year.
We have built the foremost of everything, but however we have a few small gnomes that help us from time to time.
Strangely, none of them rhyme with "-alle"
Nisse: Lizardmen player who pretty much focused on this table
Fähre: Focused on orks n gobbas. (The untrustworthy greenskins)
Now as the formal introduction has been made I shall hastly proceed towards displaying our work. Please remember that any type of pointers, comments, critisim, creative douchebaggery and cheerise is always welcome.
Well start off with the first piece of terrain I ever made, a ruined elven waystone for the woodelftable:
A follow-up with a 40K orkshackle for our ork airfield made by me as well:
As I have slight narcissistic tendencies we´ll round off this first post by posting a dragon statue for the dwarven table, also made by me:
It seems I forgot to get a picture of the finished piece, so ill fix it later
