    Warmaster Terrain Project

    The lack of decent 10mm scenery is appalling.
    So I set out to make my own.
    Just bought a new house and the gimp who owned it previously left loads of laminate flooring off cuts in the loft obviously the dumpit site was too far away for such an 'intellegent man'.

    Anyway rant over, so I have a long list of stuff I want to make and I will be using laminate flooring for the bases.

    Hills, woods, ponds/lakes, swamps/marsh, rivers and signature pieces for most of my armies. I also intend to make a few walls, hedges and fences to add to other pieces I intend to make.

    The main of these being a chaos waystone, a dark elf temple, a high elf crystal like the 28mm one, a dwarf mine, a tomb king pyramid and sphinxes and a lizardmen ziggurat and spawning pools.

    My first few efforts are here:
    Laminate flooring as a base using corrugated cardboard for the ploughed fields (half movement) and matchsticks and greenstuff for the signs and scarecrows:


    Here I used the ruins from BOTFA (defended status when unit is in the terrain piece) along with a matchstick sign post:




    Finally a cave entrance (this has a partner out of which units can move the following turn). Made using and old lump of polystyrene and some n-scale pine trees.


    Total cost for 6 ploughed fields,2 ruins and 2 caves around 3 for materials and an hours effort.

    Some lakes and swamps
    I used polyfilla for the banks and casting resin for the surface.

    I saw a lovely gorge @ terragenesis so thought I would have a go.
    I have made both sides seperate so that it gives me a bit of flexibility.
    Here is the source material
    Server packaging.

    Trimmed off all the additional parts then hacked it apart with an old soldering iron.
    Added a couple of caves and a steep path up to the top.
    Just needs painting now.

    Re: Warmaster Terrain Project

    So now I am left with these leg like stuctures off of the packaging.
    I had a brain wave and thought they would make the perfect base for a lustrian ziggurat.
    I have decided to go large with this item so it will be a centre piece for any game that includes it.



    So just to make a top for it



    All that is left to do is mark out the stone slabs when dry, glue the 2 parts together.
    Add some steps and jungle foliage and paint.
    Now how am I going to do the spawning ponds?

    Great ziggurat! Much better than lots of things I've seen made out of moulded polystyrene!

    Good work.

    You should try and slope the edges of the terrain bases to make it look more natural, especially important at warmaster scale.

    Finished the spawning pools with the help of a bottle of pva glue and some 28mm lizardmen sprues.

    Re: Warmaster Terrain Project

    And some more Forge world houses and an unknown house I bought off ebay.
    Now do I mount them all together as a village or leave them seperate?
