In order to fund my Hobby/Mortgage/holiday plans, i've decided to make a load of terrain with a plan to selling it every so often.

my main aim is to develop my terrain building enough, to end up with a high detailed set to keep within 1 year.

based on the following idea:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Million_Pound_Property_Experiment

stage 1: was my basic gets-me-by photo terrain that i recently sold on ebay.
this gave me funds to start phase 2.

Some Mordheim ruins to get the ball rolling...

The base for the Skewered Pig Inn



The old ruined house




large box of foamcard has been delivered today, so this and Crownskull pass are once more underway

Loved your terrain, by the way. Wanted to bid on it, as it was top-notch, but a little out of my price range!

Keep up the great work!

GREAT WORK! The level of detailing is FANTASTIC...love the chimneys & the exposed brickwork. The lower levels offer a lot of gaming & modeling potential. thumbsup

Did you carve all that foam by hand? To quote Darth Vader, "Impressive, most impressive."

Great work! I'm really digging your designs too.

I'd love to hear your own thoughts on how the project is going so far. Have you learned anything new? Do you consider the pieces completed so far keepers or learning experiences?

Do you have your terrain projects for other game systems posted somewhere on the net? It'd be cool to see them Smile

Wowza! Please tell me you and WbK will play a couple of games on that before you sell it? Its bound to raise the value! Or that you will keep it to enhance our enjoyment of Flame On reports for years? Lovely stuff, just lovely.

I hate you.
I need a tuto.
Right now.
Argh. No, you sell it, you won't give us a tuto.
Argh!

Okay. Too cool, imaginative and well thought scenery.

I DO HATE YOU!
But a tuto may help me to change my mind.

it's being kept. I'm sure i'll be able to twist WBK's arm for a couple of games.

i'm using the process to help create some smaller pieces. Anything over my storage allowance at home will be sold, though due to my current workload painting empire troops, painting is slow.

For HellspawN... Pink insulation foam as raised levels, stairs and chimneys. cut to shape then small sections are cut away with a scalple to represent brken plaster.

Brickwork is then drawn on with a pencil.
