    Re: My unimaginatively entitled terrain project log

    N810: Thank you very much. It seemed to drag on a bit but once I got stuck into it I really enjoyed myself. I've been hesitant trying to build my own terrain. Fear of failure and all that. I'm glad I persevered with it. More will follow.

    Tzarinchilla: I've seen pictures of your board and it looks great. I like the erosion where the grass gets close to the rocks. Doesn't look like my board but they are different landscape I guess. I think if I hadn't have seen the 3T-Studios one I may have gone for something more akin to yours. Glad you like my efforts. You can still see the polystyrene, but I think it's about disguising enough of it so you go with the illusion. Cheers!

    I've been determined to get my Tale of Terrain entry in on time so I've spent the last few days working on three craters and some homemade walls:




    The pictures above show the craters with spots of sand and pea gravel. I trimmed off the excess plastic around the edges BEFORE adding texture this time around: MUCH easier.

    I began working on the walls by trimming off the excess card around the edges so that it sits properly on my knobbly board. The walls themselves are packaging made from a kind of moulded cardboard/papier mache. Again, I got these from work.

    I then coated the walls with a layer of sand stuck down with PVA. Then I cut some pieces from sheets of textured plasticard and gave them "damage". These were then stuck to the walls with plastic glue. I then added more sand to the bottom of the pasticard bits to blend them in more with the walls:



    While the walls were drying I painted the craters. These are the three remaining ones from the pack of five. With these I wanted to make them look more "fresh" and so lightened the crater interior. The rest was done pretty much the same as the last lot but I spent less time highlighting the rocks:



    Everybody knows that craters are best photographed in the kitchen, yeah?

    More to follow......

    Re: My unimaginatively entitled terrain project log

    ..... Then I simply painted up the walls in pretty much the same way I approached the ruin. Lots of washes mainly. Easy:

    Wall 1 side a

    Wall 1 side b


    Wall 2 side a

    Wall 2 side b



    Here is a pic for scale and also showing the depth:



    Fascinating yes? Hee hee. Of course, they can be stuck together to make a big wall too. Fancy that? MODULAR!!!!



    Not sure what the next terrain project will be. I quite fancy getting my hands on some Citadel Woods or maybe a building. Of course, it could all be down to finance in which case I may be rummaging through the dungeon at work when I go back next week.

    Thanks for looking. Have a great weekend and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!

    Re: My unimaginatively entitled terrain project log

    ​N810, Killshot, Wolf Scout Ewan and sheep, thank you very much. Glad you all approve.

    This is my first post on the new site. White text box typing, stylish eh.

    Some late night posting. I have been submitting my efforts to the Tale of Terrain Builders and have gotten myself into the position of having to put in a counts-as-a-third of a piece before the end of the month to complete it. I started off mid-month with an Ork den incorporating a crash site but I soon realised there was absolutely no way I could finish it in time. I put that on hold and began work on this instead:


    This comes from a set of card buildings made by WotC for D&D called Map Folio 3-D. I would have put in a link but I don't seem to be able to? We have been using some of these buildings as terrain for games of 40k. I don't mind using them as a temporary measure but the other chap REALLY doesn't like the clash of genres.

    With the Ork den on hold I took some blue stuff off-cuts from that and stuck tmen to the bottom of the wall to break up the straight lines:



    Then it was a simple case of cladding the whole thing with some roughed up textured plasticard using the same technique as the previous wall:






    I added a little bit of sand here and there. I had thought of sticking on some plastic accessories from various Ork sprues but decided to keep it plain for the time being. Painting will be much the same as the last wall but I reckon I shall add some Death Skull checks this time as well as more graffiti.

    Not much chance of any painting tomorrow which only leaves Monday night and Tuesday night to get this thing finished in time for the tale. CAN HE DO IT???????

    ALMOST done. Just have to add some graffiti and tussock grass:

    (Apologies for quick pics, in a rush!)





    Hope to add the finishing touches tomorrow.

    Thanks for looking,

    Bennybenben12: glad you like it. I'll be sure to have a look at your terrain. Cheers!

    woabadug: Thanks

    Finished!






    And a pic of all the walls so far....



    I'm not sure if adding the graffiti was such a good idea on that last wall. I know it is in keeping with the rest of the stuff I have made but I think I preferred it without. Not very Orky but I thought it looked more arty before. I'm sure it will grow on me.

    Don't know what terrain will come next. I had started an Ork den earlier last month which I abandoned due to my commitment to the Terrain Builders Tale and the time I had left. Orks next I think. Might be a while before make anymore scenery. Have enjoyed it though.

    Thank you for your encouragement along the way. It is a great motivator!

    Have a great weekend folks!

    I'm very new to all of this but your terrain is awesome and I love the whole rusted walls. I can see a lot of your real world references have paid off significantly.

    Well bloody done

    Same for me. Really laughed. Really good terrain too! The colours do the trick. Perfect choice and nicely chaotic mix. Damn good.

    This is simply amazing!

    Very inspiring stuff, I would love to see another shot of the whole table with the scenery on it!

    Keep up the great work!
