Where do you go to get quartz shards? I have tried carving foam to resemble that, with varying degrees of success.

why gaming bases? to have more freedom with placing them on a battlefield?

I put things like dungeon dressing on gaming bases. Just to make sure that it takes up the appropriate number of squares on the board. Terrain for a battlefield, though, I usually put on foamcore.

O_O your guys' overwhelming reponse is amazing! Thank you everbody...

 

Girot: The trees are from Woodland Scenics. They have a set called "Dead Trees". It costs about $10 for 5 metal trees, which I thought was reasonable. They come flat and you can bend them basically into any shape you want. I guess you could also just use twigs, but these are really durable (indestructable). The model train stores usually carry them.

 

 

Nameless: I made them for gaming, and I game with a grid, so why not square bases? :;):

Darnit!

I was like how the heck did he do those trees because they're awesome! I was a bit sad when I realized you bought them :/

 

However the quartz thing for standing stones really works well! I've been doing various different things which doesn't always work well.

( example with simple cut up green stuff: http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/49186-araziels-descent-jitd-painting-thread/?p=718792 , would be 10x nicer with some glazed/shaded quartz :P )

      Pre-signups at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/saucermenstudios/lost-colony-spaceship-graveyard
       
      Lost colony: spaceship Graveyard is the ultimate starship wreckage system. It's all about customisation, fallen spacecraft and the fragments they leave behind.
      This modular, 3D printable terrain is the second Kickstarter from Saucermen Studios and is even bigger and more diverse than the last. As stretch goals unlock, over 210 models become available to help you build incredibly detailed and tightly packed skirmish tables or larger, sprawling battlefields.
       
      The huge core set of 80+ interlocking spaceship wreckage parts is delivered as stl files. It features incredibly detailed, double sided hull plates with internal features, computer terminals, piping, machinery, airlocks, windows, rooftops, debris sections as well as attachable ship featuressuch as boosters, engines, landing gears, weaponry and hi-tech gadgetry such as sensor arrays.

      i stumbled across this neat article on social media. It seems doable enough - balsa, hydrogen peroxide +sun light, and marine epoxy?
      Not huge application, but I suppose it would allow glass skyscrapers, greenhouses, and... mostly windows? Will post if I try. Please share if you try.

      I struggled with this for a year but really learned a lot about blending and lighting by working on this.

      I've been working on a hugely modular spaceship wreckage system. The base set has 60+ parts but the entire project includes over 150 models.
