When I got back into the Hobby some years ago, I decided I would need a Projekt for the General Motivation. So I was looking for something playable with diverse miniatures, a small amount of Minis nieder and a Design to which Incould easily add various other Elements. Soon I found the game of The drowned earth. My strategy was to build a full table of Terrain before buying Minis. This way it should be easy to motivate myself for getting the minis done afterwards. When trying tl find out more about the options of terrain building I became fascinated by the possibilities of mdf buildings. Searching for a terrain fitting to the three dimensional movements of The drowned earth I decided that the Venice line of ttcombat is a perfect match. Then buildings were designed to be played with carnevale. A game with very fast movements, a lot of climbing, jumping and of course water. Some guys Look like Assassins from a popular game. This makes the perfect baseline for a drowned earth table. I will give Photos and ideal of different parts of the Projekt and share some more ideas. And I will be grateful for more Tipps and ideas for the Projekt.
So, a little over a year ago I got my paws on a decent amount of MDF terrain, specifically with the goal of using it to build up a nice Infinity board. After narrowing it down, I wound up ordering some things from Warsenal as well as Global Evil Corp. Warsenal was because I loved the look of their Cosmica Line, and Global Evil Corp because I absolutely love kerf cuts and the fact they utilized such to have ROUNDED CORNERS on buildings. Oh yeah, and the sliding windows and doors gimmick was a pretty big draw too. Last month my goal was to get it all primed, because I was tired of the raw MDF, plus I wanted to use it as inspiration to keep moving on my Infinity miniatures... This month I'm going to see what can be ^Let's just say there's a semi-reasonable amount of terrain involved.... ^An okay amount for a diverse, two level 15 point (Code One) or 150 point (N4) field, although I could use a few more options... But definitely not much in the way of full on variety for a full on 30 point (Code One) or 300 point (N4) 4x4' table. ^Before I forget, this is what attaches on to that cube frame. Looks so much nicer built up, even if I uh, haven't built the last panel yet due to lack of space on the desk. ~ Anyways, they've been raw MDF for far too long in my opinion, so let's get things staged over by the airbrush.... ^Mr Hobby Mr.Almighty clips are rather handy.... ^And primed. Yup, classic black primer with a white "zenithal" (for lack of better words) across things. ^After a few hours, we now have this. Okay, stage is set, but it feels like something is missing.... ^Aha, looking a lot better. Initially I was going to try and go crazy on the colours for the exterior, but hubby and I just like the basic light kinda blue colour we've got going, so onwards to accents... (Colours used: Mission Models Blue, with a small amount of black added in, as well as a reasonable amount of white - goal was for a bit of a greyish blue, and while I didn't quite get it how I wanted, eh, close enough and we like it) ^Decided to show the roof progress a little more in depth here, partially because I remember @Kangaroorex inquiring about the opacity of those Wicked Colours Opaque colours. The Dioxazine Purple I think was five drops of colour with two drops of Vallejo Thinner Medium, and on the right I had a moderately wet hybrid brush that was dipped into paint, and then traced along. Not sure what happened on the right side, but somehow I managed to go almost all the way around without running out of paint, but I also wasn't able to repeat it, although it was only a few inches before it started becoming see through. I'll still try to remember to do an actual test over white paper with print at some point. ^Now, as for those roofs... Sure, I could mask things, or even create a airbrush template, and I might still, but at the same time... The basic blocks have been laid down, with Wicked Opaque Pthalo Blue on the inner triangle like bits, Wicked Opaque Pyrrole Orange on the inner thin line, and Wicked Opaque Dioxazine Purple on the outer line. What's the current plan? Well, naturally I'm going to get the basic colours laid down on the rest of the items, but I'm going to test out Pthalo Blue on a roof section to see what thoughts are. Originally, the two lines that go around each building were going to be orange, but after a quick though they're going to be purple. Warsenal stuff will see more oranges and reds, as well as purples to them, at least that's the current main plan ^_^;;;
