Terrain #5

Hello All,

Here is the latest on the table commission  project.

The Ruins- I know it looks a little like NOVA Ruins but that's because that is where it started. I build it during the NOVA "Make and Take" party last September after the 2013 NOVA open.


Freshly Airbrushed

Model Placement tests

I Like this one

First run of highlights

I am really starting to like rust effects

Well that's it for now

Terrain #4

Tau on a hill

Don't worry the Rail gun is magnetized 

It just looks cooler in the picture.

Don't you think?

The Finished House

I really like the way this turned out.

The Finished Hills

Terrain Project #3


Just a quick update on the terrain commission. It's really coming along. Check out these work in progress Hills-

I thought the ladder was a nice touch

mostly done 40K hill


Looks cool right?
 I also have a chance to paint the new MACRO cannon blast craters. My test section gave me an opportunity to play around with various weathering techniques.
The full effect

AK grime streaks

Rust effects

Value Tinting

Close up

Weathering powders
When I took the pictures the sealant was still drying so much of the shine is gone.

I hope you like them.

Terrain Project

Hello all,

I have recently been commissioned to build a tables worth of terrain for a buddy of mine. It needs to be able to support Warmachine, Fantasy and even 40K. The requestor has asked for Hills, a water feature, some Tree bases, a building, and some low walls.

Well tonight I got out the old wire cutter and attacked some foam.

1" Foam

Template #1

Template #2

 I decided to make the Fantasy hills as single layer 1" hills with straight sides for use with warmachine and Fantasy.

8" hill

25 Black Orcs

25 Black Orcs

This is why I went with straight hills

Good for accuracy
I then tackled the 40K hills. these need to be taller to allow total LOS blocking for small vehicles and Troops.
Hill #1
Hill #2

A ladder will be added in the grove

With models on it

Wide enough for 40mm bases no problem 
 Lastly I made the structure for a Farm House for the Fantasy/Warmachine building.
Still needs Trimming
Here are all of todays work with a bonus Partial LOS blocking ruins I am adding as an extra.

Well that's that...

Till next time
