PostSubject: Balangaz Terrain pieces   Sat Jan 21, 2012 6:28 pm

So, here are a couple of pieces l have. l had 3 phases so far, the muddy terrain, the desert terrain, which didn't work, and the basic ruins now.

Here's the muddy terrains!

First, the first piece l've done, a bombed house transformed into a defensive position. Got 3rd place on a competition with this piece.

Next, a container dropped bt a Valkyrie on a muddy field, with some propaganda on over it.

Also, a small patch of bombed forest. Used real wood here. Looks smal but l can fit 9 25mm models w/o losing the balance!

After, l made this tower...

...but while l was painting it l got mad it was not going as l wanted and tossed it out, but not before tearing it apart first. After an hour or so I got calmer and wet to get it back from the trash, and decided to make 2 pieces of terrain with the remains.

An rusted top of a container.

The second piece is the balcony, and since it was already destroyed

I bought a plastic toy car and decided to make it stuck on the mud, made it into a small barricade for my gaming board

Here is a group shot with all the muddy terrain l have. Some do not have single shots.

Just found out l have no desert terrain pics, so let's skip those. To the ruins then!

From here after, all pics are clicable for a larger size.

They are supposed to be quick and dirty pieces but I've tried to put some character on each piece. I used some white high density polystyrene boxes, some plaster and sprue rubble.

First building, this was the first one I did. When I finished I just thought it was boring so I made the rubble falling outside the ruins. 3 sides are opened and one blocks LoS completely. Still have to paint the wood on the windows but other than that this piece is done.

Second piece's a little bigger, used the buildings on fallout games as reference. There, all ruins I notice are like this, they have 2 destroyed walls and one inverted corner. When I finished the 'floating' corner as too loose so I placed this rusted walkway to hold them together.

Third building is still a WIP, it will be a big one, 4 floors and loads of rubble, lots of rusted bits and maybe a burried gaunt somewhere...

Forth piece is not a building, but so far the center piece. It's a ruined building with a super Sentinel destroyed over a wall. Really liked the rusted on the Sentinel and how it's falling onto the floor. Also, the sewer and waste on the other side of the piece, so life-like it should smell lol

These are some walkways so I can connect these buildings or even as barricades on the board...

...and these are some accessories for the table, some barrels with tarp over it, piping and a nice piece of machinery that I don't know what is for.

And fot the last piece, I was saving this statue to be burred in rubble but decided to tag it. As you can see, it used to be Scavvies territory, but know it's Jokers - my Circus In the Emperor's Name retinue.

That's all for now, l'll update this as l finish some more pieces and think of new ones.

Nice. I love how messy everything is! I really like the poster on the first piece and the graffiti on the statue. Great job with all of the mud and how well the pieces fit together. Thanks for sharing.

I saw the pics and I said out loud "Fu@K YEAH!!! That's the ticket!" Then I saw one of my kids looking at me with disproving eyes. I should have cursed in Spanish.

I like the terrain... no... LOVED it! My favorites are the muddy ruins... with all the propaganda posters. AWESOME! The foam based buildings are OK, but I have never been a fan of such thick structures. Anyhow... I'm off to take a 2nd look to those ruins! YEAH!!!

Wow, I really like the muddy ones. How did you get the mud to still seem wet?

Thanks guys, the muddy set was my pride and joy when I finished, thing is I never got to make a mussy army, nor I have space for a game table, so they never got to see any action =/

Prius, all you need is gloss varnish on the wet parts. If you don't want to spend a lot of time varnishing things separately, you can use a coat of PVA over the 'wet' parts, it will make it harder and wet =p

Sweet looking terrain! I like the rusted soda-can container, the rust on it looks nice!
