Is good stuff, don't get me wrong but it's just not to my taste.
I do like the bunkers - may only problem with it would be that you can clearly see the individual polystyrene polyps. If you coated it with Polyfilla or something first, I would be more inclined to say you'd make some decent money.
I like the wooded areas too.
It looks pretty darn good to me. Not "for" me........I am not doing much 40K these days. Now....some of those terrian pieces could make good pieces for a Lizardman battlefield.
I am therefore I think OR I think therefore I am?
Thanks Crazy Harborc .
I don't think most of these guys read the part where I said this is some of the first terrain I have ever made.
OK here's the obligatory shots of my workspace. (Aright a really cleaned up workspace)
So There you go...
If you look real close in the first picture you can see my cat right before she pulled that fern from the table.
you can deffinetly tell the difference between this camera and the other one.
You asked for our comments and opinions and we gave them. I think you have to take the rough with the smooth.
I like jungle senery and I would play on a table that had that particular scenery on it, but I make my own terrain and am happy with the results, I would not pay for the scenery you sell, not because its bad or something but because it wouldn't math any of my boards and if I did have a jungle board I would make the terrain myself.
Plus I think my mate is making a jungle board anyway
I suppose people would pay for it if you marketed it correct.
Gee I haven't done any post in a while. I have been working on a bamboo guard tower, I should have some pics for you when I get home tonight.
bdo - you might be interested, I got the idea to dye some string to make weathered rope.
Then I did a lot of rope tying (sp?) on all the joints and partialy wove the floors.
that looks really good.. yes thats how it should look like
you just need the right string - and i think you´ve got the right stuff.
yea you want cotton string.
I soaked mine in water, black ink and a little brown ink.
but the string was still to thick , so I cut it to length,
and pull it apart into smaller strands.
I'll have some more updates for you tonight. I have allread primed the base, and done the first floor of the tower, now I just have to tie up the braces that are at ground level.
do you think I need an "A" frame roof on this thing or
maybe some battlements or just leave the top as is?
i wouldnt take the "A" frame... make the pillars in the corners a little longer, then put a simple "square of wood/bambus" ontop of it, keep it flat but jungle like - you have lots of bamboo usead already... it would be adequate to make the roof look to have the same style.
my opinion on that matter
yes.. i knew what you mean, but maybe my english skills are insufficent to describe what i mean.
this "A"frame pic shows pretty good what i dont want you to make of this nice little tower
here is a visual of what i would do instead:
err...yes, that is hand drawn. the green part is the roof, the red parts are there that those on the tower dont fall off and get some cover, and finally the yellow and black parts are the sticks the tower is made off (yes.. i know.. normally this is quite self explanary [spelling?].. but in the case of this pic i wasnt too sure...).
that way, it has a lot more military style, which is something i would prefer over civilian "hunting huts" for wh40k terrain.
but in the end you have to decide for yourself what you like better. Maybe make another one and try different roofs?
or just listen to me
OK I'm out of rope and out of sticks,
good news i'm dying more rope and will cut more sticks tomorrow.
so mostly i finished up with what I had then worked on the base a bit.
That Guard tower is awesome, N810, really excellent work! It looks incredibly realistic.
yeah.. i would like to hear that in full detail
First get some Cotton Twine.
Second get some brown paint and some ink.
Then wrap a length of string you want around your fingers.
this makes it easier to dye and easier to retrieve.
Then mix about 2/3 water 1/3 ink then add a little brown depending on preference.
submerge the twine overnight.
in the morning I used the end of my paint brush to fish out the loop of string.
then I draped it over another glass to Drip Dry.
note I put the handle through the center of the loop.
this is helpful because this helps it dry, plus it's messy.
Ok i am back from work and it's mostly dry.
so I took it out and put it on a paper plate to absorb some more moisture.
It's still not Dry so I nuked it for a couple of minutes.
this is probably gong to stink up the place like burning wood.
don't worry it's probably not on fire, But I would check on it periodically if I where you.
ok when you use it cut it to Length.
