This month I'm taking part in Angry Piper's August TerrainTime Challenge. Its basically just a call out to gamers to produce a piece of terrain for the battlefield. You can see the background and the premise for the challenge here.
I along with the following chaps are giving building terrain in August a go,
|The painted buildings are superglued onto a base of 1.5mm plasticard with a base colour painted onto it.|
|I cut and glued on some 0.5mm by 2mm styrene strips ro represent walls|
|I then added a base flock and drybush the concrete/ stone sections|
|Add a top layer of flock, and Woodland scenic foliage of different shades and sizes for bushes|
|Finish with trees as required.|
For my trees I use copper wire and Woodland Scenic's foliage/ turf.
|I've twisted 10 lengths of copper wire together and formed a basic tree shape. The trunk is extra long some of it will be embedded in the base. Its given a quick coat of dark brown paint.|
|PVA is painted onto the wire and Woodland Scenic Coarse Turf is pressed on. I use a mix of two colours to help mimic the different colours of leaves on a tree. This is a mix of medium and dark green.|
|Once the PVA is dry I use a watered down glue mix the consistency and colour of milk and cover the tree. This binds the foliage together and hardens it, hopefully improving longevity.|
I'll have more updates on progress later this month.
