Terrain and Objectives

Post#1 » Dec 04 2017 03:24

This is a log about my private collection of 28mm. terrain and objectives.

Log Background
In february 2017 I attended this small con that I've visited before, what was different about it was that time was:
1. it was me and my fiance's first weekend without the baby :fear:
2. a friend and I was asked to host the miniture section. :)

It became real apparent that we didn't have enough terrain, my friend had been building for a while but I had nothing, so a month before launch, without knowledge ( or propper materials ) I tried to build two forests and two ruins for a HoR kill team board.

Well february 2018 is coming up really fast, and I have been learning and working on some terrain, of higher quality.
I hope this log, and you guys :biggrin:, will help keep me engaged through the winter :)

This is my first terrain piece, a plastic cover from a baby toy with painted tape and plastic bushes

Image
My two latest pieces, a small hill and forest. Made of a foamboard base, with expandable foam "body", the trees are wire trees with milliput bark

Edit: moved img's to imgur.

Current project, a house ruin, in a forest setting, I've added a walkway around what is left of the main wall, added a tree ( wires + milliput ) and cut out and pastered a path down to base, the point of the piece is to have a snipers nest / a way for infantry to stay out of sight

Update on current project, I've painted the tree, added a wall at the base .. it now looks like there might have been a tower in the end there - a church maybe - I'm making some more stones, out of milliput, that I want to scatter and to have them stick out of the ground to illustrate a collapse.
I also added the path, and some base paint.
To go: two trees, stones, grass+weeds and a whoooole lot of drybushing :D
