cool tower! If it wasn't so impossible to get insulation foam here I'd copy it. Crying or Very sad I don't reckon the rock looks unrealistic, there's quite a lot of stuff like that near the Spanish border (and, presumably, in spain; too).

VERY NICE! The house & tower look GREAT perched on the rock formation. I would agree with Chad that the rocks DO look good. Heating your cutting tool [a candle works well for this] makes cutting "natural" thingys easier with insulation foam...at least until you can get a hot wire cutter Suspect . VERY WELL DONE! thumbsup

This is all amazing stuff! I can't wait to see some bamboo forests or something. Keep up the good work.

Also, your demon infested well I think captures the feeling I was hoping to get for our well. Love it!

No, those lizzies are being painted by the player that wants to jump into the campaign with the ninja goblins.

Right now I'm in Tokyo for a short visit, so I'm gathering tons of ideas (and books) that will help me with this project. I have hit sort of a "aha" idea on how to make the various buildings look like a real town, and it is much thanks to the great Edo Tokyo Museum that has some of the most awesome model towns (most around 40mm scale or so). So when I come back, I'll try to kick it up a notch or two. Smile

(picking up weird jungle plant kits at Yellow Submarine will hopefully help a bit too)

Amazing job on the village. I plan to steal the idea for the thatched roofs. Thanks for the inspiration.

I've been away for almost a week and a half, but now I'm back and working steady on my terrain.









What I really wanted to do was to try out working with high density styrofoam to make some rocks, and to try out modeling greenery. I got some really good stuff from this site: resin barrels, tacky glue (this is truly awesome for flocking!), long grass, and the nifty pre-made tufts that are spread around.

Some things turned out so-so, but a lot of it came out better than I expected. I might remake the roof with real wood instead since I think it look two dimensional with just cardboard.

No time to rest on laurels, so I made some mantlets that will be useful as barricades:





Finally, I also did some actual miniature painting today. I got some Rackham Ogres second hand, and they are really suitable for the terrain. It was a long time since I really sat down and painted a single miniature to the best of my abilities and not just batch paint units. A bunch of thinned down layers later and I'll soon be done with the skin:

That turned out BEAUTIFULLY. AND it's the first time that I've seen GW's lollipop trees look good/realistic. The interior detail turned out especially well [LOVE that weapon rack]. thumbsup
The Ogre IS one Ubercool mini [never seen that one before affraid ]. I agree with mein Freund, cianty, the skin tones & tattoos are REALLY well done. AND the mini will work VERY well with the setting. A FINE piece of work all around! thumbsup

Project Terrain continues. Just in time for most of my bowmen being killed in our Mordheim Campaign, I finished the mantlets. Now I'll hopefully have something to hide behind when the enemy takes pot shots at me.





Really simple to make and easy to paint. I might even make more in the future, if we feel a need for more barricades.

I had some bad luck and all the good members of my warband died today, leaving my sole (and Stupid!) champion as the leader instead of my ld9 leader. However I had some money stashed away, and after a lucky TKGT roll I am the first to reach six heroes. Poor heroes without that many skills and stupidity, but heroes none the less.

We're already thinking of making some homegrown rules, first to make halberds better (THEY SUCK!), and then to make some kind of countercharge rule to avoid a group of warriors who are not in h2h combat just watching like morons as two or three enemies gang up on a single one of them who happens to be positioned half an inch in front of the others.

Yeah, they are really easy to make, and if you don't have balsa wood you can make them with just popcicle sticks and matches, making them about the cheapest terrain you can build really. They are not even painted really, I just lathered them in Ogryn Flesh wash, and then in Devlan Mud wash. That's it, just minutes of work really.

AMAZING works... i love it. The paintings are impressive, and terrain is awesome. I only think the trees maybe are not very of the oriental style... but whatever you must be proud of your work Smile

That's pretty awesome, Dalia. Actually, one of the comments down at the club before painting it was that it looked a lot like a fisherman's house, and some guys wondered if I was planning to have water under it. So your version should be pretty spot on, since it seems to be a lot like what the guys at the club expected my house to turn out. Just add a little net or some fishing rods to it, and it'll be a perfect fisherman's hut. Smile

I've been busy at work lately, but I managed to make a small notice board. The aim was to make something small enough to place in between houses to give some extra cover, and also to make something a little bit more obviously Japanese to give some more atmosphere to the board. For this piece I also wanted to start learning how to make believable cloth for banners etc. Let me just say that googling "modeling" and "cloth" was hardly useful. Rolling Eyes So first attempts: just plain and simple paper. Not awe inspiring, but works at a distance. If anyone know of a great way to do good cloth, I'm all ears. Smile

I also have no good solution for bamboo, so for this one I just painted the texture in browns and greens to see how it turned out.

For Bamboo I sanded down some plasticcard first, but found the easiest way was to just paint it like bamboo... it's quite some work, but the result was really good..


started off with a sandy colour, and higlighted towards a dark brown rim, with a bleached bone highlight on the other side...

Not sure how much you want to make of it... cause it takes some time.. but the result is good!

Looks like Dalia is going to provide some stiff competition; AND you can egg each other on to new heights of creativity. COOL! thumbsup
Thesignsare REALLY nicely done; they'll add a lot to the atmoshere of the gaming board along with a bit of cover.
For the bamboo you could use shishkabob skewers; since they ARE bamboo, they look the part. Just rough them up a bit to exaggerate the grain & cut joints at semiregular intervals.
For cloth I use .010 sheet styrene [plasticard]. If you heat it up, you can get the creases & folds you'd expect in cloth. I hope that's of some help. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK...or else. Deaf Nala Smiley
