This is a tile based board for minis with an underwater reef theme. I have made the tiles magnetic; the photo is of the board built on my refrigerator. I sculpted a bunch of coral sections in sculpy, including some giant soft corrals. Finer decoration (green stuff sculpts of starfish and that type of thing) will be done after paint/ sealant is applied. Suggestions would be welcome. I plan on adding some reaper aquatic animals and the statue of dagon as the project develops.
So I was working on making coral reefs for my Kraken, like I did for my Coraldrax, and I thought someone else could perhaps use a tutorial on how to do it themselves. Coraldrax: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/56564-basing-coraldrax/ Kraken: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/59698-77291-the-kraken/ So first I rip up cork and glue it down, using pliers to rip chunks off and get a more random and odd shape. I then covered all of it in acrylic paint, in this case Wrought Iron which has a nice green color. I did the ship as well Then I dry brushed white lightly over the cork and the ship Next i drybrush a light green over all of it After that, drybrush a gold-yellow color I focused on the sea floor now, using a mix of khaki and light blue. I added a bit of blue dry brushing over the coral, but not the boat With a darker green, i added it in areas taht would have shadow on the boat FInal steps is to dry brush a few more coats of green and yellow until the coral looks how you want it. I then go back to Wrought Iron and outline all the cracks in the boat I hope you find this helpful!
