Finally got around to finishing the board , kinda. Still have to sand the pink foam off the edge of the water. It came out pretty good but I might pour another layer of water with some paint or ink mixxed in , it looks way to clean to be in a ravaged city. Will have to experiment with it.

I am useing woodland scenics Reallistic Water so if anyone has used this pruduct and has a way to "mix" a good looking fetid water affect I would like to know what they did.

VERY, VERY NICE! The bridge ascending the hill looks TERRIFIC. Whatever you put on that board will look better for its location. thumbsup

I got a decent tinted effect by adding a drop or so of Dr. Martin's Watercolors to Realistic water...anymore than that turns the mix opaque & ruins the effect.
BTW keep the board with the water out of direct sunlight; a prolonged exposure "melts" the water. affraid Suspect

I have not used Dr. Martins before. I will see if I can find it locally.

I did not know the water effect could melt like that. I will definatly remember this.

Here is a Skaven warren I started this past weekend. GW used to have something like this on there website years ago but I cannot find it anymore. Anyway it is something I have wanted to do for a long time . Since my brother just recently bought the Island of Blood and is planning on fielding a Skaven army I thought it was time to build it. I figure it will also look good on the Mordheim board , off to the side like the Skaven are trying to get a foothold in the city.

Oh! Great stuff! The effect on the walls of the building is really clever... Love that pool as well!

Your board is shaping up nicely too! I'm gonna have a go with Frogprince to make board sometime soon too. Thanks for the pics! Smile

The Rat Guy Digs look COOL; they have the same lovely ramshackle quality as my Goblinesque Architecture. What a Face
Tip: if you draw a coarse jewelers saw over the wood with the grain of the wood, you can enhance the grain & give it a nice rough, easily dry-brushable finish.

Here is an update on the Skaven warren. I think it came out pretty good. The weathering on the wood didn't turn out as good as I had hoped. Normally I paint wood black then drybrush dark brown then light and then some grey to make it look weathered and it looks great. This I painted brown then drybrushed grey and it didn't come out so good. I used it in a WHFB game yesterday against my bothers Skaven and it really looked good on the board behind his hordes. I'm letting my brother finish it off with some rats and banners.

I will post more pics when it's complete. Thanks for looking. Comments, criticism or ideas on what to add on to it welcome.






I don't know why the pics came out a bit pink. Must have hit something on the camera?

Here are some trees I have been working on. Herte is the youtube channel I got the tutorial from http://www.youtube.com/user/thekamloopian .

I need to finish the trunks and base them and they will be ready to use. There really easy to make , I got 7 of them done in a couple hours after work the other night. Also when I add it all up they cost maybe a quarter a piece to make and look a lot better than anything I have seen for sale on the web.

COOL STUFF! The Skaven Warren has a suitably ratty feel to it, AND the trees are EXCELLENT. VERY WELL DONE! thumbsup

Those trees are looking great.

I think you could make the skaven warren pop if you drybrush it lightly with a bone colour. I don't think just using two colours is enough on such a large piece.
