|One of the games I play is Mordheim. One of the neat things about that is I get to create my own terrain for the game. Below are a few terrain pieces I've built. Enjoy!
That earlier graveyard wasn't all that cool. It wasn't based properly and I wanted to do some terrain set outside the city.
Here we've got a good overview of the graveyard. I've removed the pieces from the old graveyard and placed them down on a large sheet of paper, rearranging them until they looked pretty good. Unfortunately, the only sheets of styrofoam I could find were these 3/4-inch thin sheets. I cut out basic shapes for the two levels and did the basic sloping with my hot wire cutter. The grave on the top level was hacked out with an x-acto knife. The sides were smoothed out with a heated up knife.
Air-drying clay was used to re-shape the slopes. Additional clay was used to form mounds for the graves and dirt piles by the open grave. The open grave holds a coffin lid, made from my favorite coffee stirrers given a chestnut ink wash. Atop the coffin is a fixture from the Mordheim set.
I've switched from the GW paints to a really neat brand of craft paints (Anita's). They're a bit thinner so they require an extra coat but they're twenty-nine cents for a 2 oz bottle. I always start with a brown base, covered with grass landscaping material. This makes the ground cover look muddy; by concentrating the grass in some areas and not in other areas you can make travelled paths on the ground.
Stonework was just lifted off the original graveyard. It was orignally primed black, then touched up with Chaos Black. It was then not-so-drybrushed Codex Grey, Fortress Grey, Space Wolves Gray, and then drybrushed with Skull White.
