Hi all,
wanted to share the wip of my terrain here. Working on it on and off for some months now.

After building the ruined viaduct recently, i finally started to tackle some of my other unfinished terrain pieces.

With the terrain painted somewhat similar, i even continued working on the board itself, to give them a place to feel at home. Very Happy

I also got a lot of inspiration from seeing PJB's wonderful diverse platforms. They add so much character and versatility to the table, that i cannot wait to (humbly) try out something along these lines too...

Well, that was quite a flood of pictures, and i guess i really need to work on my photography skills too...

Cheers,
Jamatra

Nice work on those. I like the inclusion of the twigs/roots, very effective.

That's an amazing WIP post, cool stuff Jamatra! Smile Really impressed with the ground texture on the ruins, looks really realistic! Shocked

Many thanks for the feedback, i'm glad you like it so far!

@robh: yes, i was surprised how well they looked as roots on the viaduct piece. I had some more of the same twigs lying around and decided to decorate the other pieces with them too. I think these little details add a lot to the eerie atmosphere of the scene... although they are really fiddly and a pain in the @$$ to fix them where i want them to be. XD Time will tell if they are sturdy enough to survive actual tabeltop gaming ...

@Tagnator: bedankt! Smile I'm still experimenting a lot with different materials. The most important tip for me was to use something with a way smaller grain than usual sand as basing material.

I used tile grout (a tip from "Geek Gaming" Luke, and luckily i had a big bag of it lying around in my basement Wink) and powdered plaster of paris, others use baking powder for example.
In this homebrewn Texture Paste i used "normal" sand too, and bigger  "decorative" sand or stones from the 1-Euro store (all mixed with raw umber acrylic paint and pva glue into a brown mess XD).
I guess it's about to find a good balance between different materials to make it look more random or "realistic".


Continued to paint the base colours on the board, after the ground texture had hardened over night...

Hello and welcome to the forum!
Nice start by showing those nice pieces of scenery cheers
Love the ruined wall section, lots of eerie character to it, well, seeing the fimir avatar it might be a bit of cursed marshland surrounding marienburg?

The idea of laying the stonetiles the same level as the mud/debris layer is a superb idea, , iam working on a piece of rotten garden, might take that up;) thumbsup

Hey, man!!! Welcome. Thats a fine start. Specially the base board is looking good. And the small nature elements are looking quite nice. Jeah, do platforms, they give a modular gaming table quite quickly!!! Every terrain set up will be different.

Thanks "und vielen lieben Dank auch" for the welcome and feedback. I appreciate it a lot!

@floedebolle: my impatience to take photos before the board was fully dried, seemed to give it more of a marshy, muddy look than i intended originally Smile I gotta admit i'm not too much into Fimir lore (yet!), but the idea of a remote Fimir settlement in a cursed marshland area is definitely going into my notebook... Wink

I planned to make the table surface somewhat flat, despite its different ground types, to keep the modularity with the terrain pieces on it as high as possible. I wanted the functionality of a battle mat but also a bit of the haptic experience of an actual "sculpted" landscape, if that makes any sense.

A rotten garden sounds like a really cool idea, curious to see what you might do with it.
       
@PJB: Indeed, i'm fascinated by the idea of adding another dimension of modularity to the table in such a (relatively) simple way!

Instead of going directly for the platforms, i dusted off some older pieces i hadn't painted yet (fully):

This is a little plateau i made. Not sure how useful it will be on the table as terrain. At least the flat surface allows for placing some other stuff on top...

Jamatra's World in Progress Platea10

It was a kind of an experiment, using the texture of snapped xps sheets (4cm) as a cliff face...what do you think about it?

Jamatra's World in Progress Platea11

This was the first approach of a "classic" mortheim-style ruined house front, i was quite pleased with. (There are others, not so succesful pieces, slumbering in my basement) I think it still lacks some vertical or diagonal wooden beams on the upper "fachwerk" levels...

Jamatra's World in Progress House111

Well, i hope it's not considered as spamming the thread, but i also wanted to share this most elaborate building i made so far (pls ignore the hovering inner columns... they'll be fixed eventually! XD)
I planned it as a ground-level for a towerlike structure but abandoned it in the meantime. Since i found a recipe for painting my stonewalls, i thought it is time to finally colour this piece and add it to the table

Oh wow, those arcades/tomb buildings are awesome! Looking forward to the paintjob.
I also found out that the platforms made by PJB that inspired me to do mine, really push the whole game to another LEVEL Razz , no really, it gives so much more great moments to divecharge and more, pick a model you like to shoot, you all know what else, its great! so, some more of those nice looking plateau would be a great plus for this gaming table, my humble opinion;)

So i felt the need to get these platforms planned out before thinking about other elements of the table. I descended into the dungeon basement and found some scrap xps sheets i hauled from a construction site some time ago. It is Ursa XPS, somehow rougher and more porous than the finer blue DOW XPS i normally use for modelling: perfect for the rough shape of the platform. Not so good for carving the stonework directly into the sides. So i'll have to clad (face?) the platforms with bricks and tiles made of the blue xps later on i think.

My gut feeling to split the two rectangular pieces in the same angle seems to be a lucky shot.
I opted for turning one of the pieces around, to have them mirrored

Whether it is larger platforms or "urban canyons" ...

...there are endless possibilities and interesting setups...

On top of the platforms i'm going for the tile pattern i have on the board too. It's called "Römischer Verbund" in german

Jamatra's World in Progress Rzmisc11

Started to cut the different sized tiles...

Down in the basement i also rediscovered two more unfinished buildings of mine, a smaller corner ruin and a sturdy watchtower, screaming to be freed from their sorry existence in the darkness of that damp cellar...

More on that in the next post... Smile

Hurrahurra, die Plattformen Massenproduktion ist da!

Glad to see ur table growing in size Very Happy dont forget to make urself a good amount of stairs, if platforms are over 1“ high. I remember the climbing rules in mordheim quite fruststrating if u play mercenaries, haha
