So, I don't do much terrain work, but every once in a while, I like to binge on some objective markers Razz The other day I had a crazy idea for an Ork Missle, and it all kinda snowballed after that. I'm currently looking into some Mordhiem work and hopefully that, coupled with my set designer friend, will force me in to make some more terrain pieces. Other things I've done in the past arn't very mentionable except a very cool Tomb Kings Monolith that I had made, but unfortuneatly was stupid enough to use spraypaint on it... though it may be resurected/redone sometime in the future.


I made this one a while back. It's made from insulation foam that was leftover from when our bathroom was redone, I snagged a nice chunk of it. It was really tough to make the inside of it so it's a bit odd in there. When/if it's finished, I'll paint it like water and maybe a bit mossy, then put some glue inside to make it like a little bird bath.


This is a little fave of mine ^.^ just a simple little bump covered in variouse sizes of greenstuff mushrooms. I used 2 different things for makeing the gravel, some wierd sprakly dust stuff and some gritier gravel, unfortuneately their both too big really and I'll have to go buy something else before baseing my marines.


This will eventualy be a little podium style thing for a big magic book I got in that arcane tombs order thing. Unfortunately the book is already open, so I'll have to add some greenstuff scrolls underneath it to make it look right. Lets hope the whole thing dosn't break under the weight of the metal book o.O


This is the one that started the binge. Just a random idea, an Ork Rokkit plowed into the ground but didn't blow up.


These are definatly my favorite, I've allways loved the look of Warpstone (or Wyrdstone if you're playing Mordhiem) and have wanted to paint up some nice ones for a while. I even stuck a cunk of warpstone in the hand of one of my Liche Priests and wanted to work it into their backstory (if anyone saw my Obolisk ;D ) Will eventualy base it, but wanted to paint it right away Razz

Not bad! Smile Now get those little bits and pieces painted, we're looking forward to that!

(Also a little tip: When you take close up pics, activate the "flower" (aka "Macro") mode. Note that there still is a minimum distance at which the camera cannot get a sharp plane, no matter how good your macro.)
