Need terrain assistance

Recommended Posts

Due to circumstances beyond our control, some of the terrain for the Warlord tournament appears that it will not be ready in time. I'm working to keep the existing scenarios (as opposed to writing new ones at the last minute), but I have limited space to bring items to the con with me, and even then, I don't have everything I need. So, this is where you can help.

 

If you have access to wargaming terrain, and can get any of this to me by the time the con starts Thursday afternoon, please let me know. The wish list is as follows:

 

Dirt road sections (far less important, but it'd be nice)

Large hill sections

 

If you can help, please PM me.

Hey Vince. We are only running our game once a day for 2 hours. Feel free to use whatever you want any other time.

Rats!  Wish I had known sooner.  I had tons of room in my van.  Sorry!  If I can help you prep anything this evening let me know.  I have a little bit of experience making terrain quickly.......

I have one dozen swamps. Various sizes averaging 6x8 inches.

I have six wells (or possibly twelve: I don't remember).

 

The wells resemble this one:

But more of a fantasy vibe than middle-eastern.

 

You can see the some of the swampy-ground patches in the first post of this Terragenesis thread:

Craft foam which can be purchased at Hobby Lobby comes in a delightful dirt road brown. Several pieces of that + one pair of scissors could create some serviceable roads.

 

I have a few random hills made of foam (that are painted) when you say large? how large is large?

[ --wanders off to measure hills-- ]

 

I could throw all this in a tote and bring it Thursday morning. [?]

Ok, I think we have the terrain-side of it covered well enough. Kevin, if you guys are available to help watch over the tables from time to time, that would be super helpful.

 

Thanks everyone!

      This is something I started working on a looong time ago.  I finally made the push to get it done and get it out--probably donating it to one of the FLGSs.  WIP  here:  https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/87566-ruined-building-terrain-pic-heavy-ish/
      I wasn't trying to get too, too fancy with this.  Rather I began with the intent to see how quickly I could make a good enough piece of terrain.  Had I not taken a year-long hiatus from it I may have succeeded, as I think that barring drying times I have around.
      You can see a Bones skele or to lurking around for scale.  I was having a challenging time with my camera and the lighting (room is kind of in disarray at the moment), so I have a few different exposures here.
      Had a lot of fun with the fiddly bits like the graffiti, wire conduit, and dead plants.
      In the fist and second pics you can even see one of my new backgrounds in the...background--too bad I made it for a standard mini, not a large building.
      Questions, comments, critiques welcome!

      A craft store near me was going out of business, and I found the rock molding kit from Scene O Rama for $1. There was enough plaster to make  2 molds of each rock. I painted them as instructed with the provided paints, glued them to balsa squares and rectangles, added some dirt and the talus. Some bushes added for color and interest. I wouldn’t use balsa wood for this again. The washes and thinned down glues caused the balsa to curl. 
       
      I figured id use them as difficult terrain indicators in our D&D games.  I’m thinking about running the old timey Isle of Dread adventure for my group, maybe these will come in handy.

      I didn't see this listed so:
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/archonstudio/dungeonsandlasers-plastic-tabletop-rpg-scenery
       
      I received an engineering sample of the product today. They're made of hard gray injection-molded plastic, my guess would be ABS from its hardness and density. The floor and wall ties fit together tightly, though it takes a bit of effort that likely would wear at paint on those surfaces had they been painted. Due to response from earlier sample recipients, the production tiles will be slightly larger than the samples.

      This is an animal companion to a kobold Ranger in a module.  The character art has it light green with dark green stripes.  A little cliche, but I don’t care.
       
      There are two arm choices.  I went with the ones making it look like he was grabbing something.  Got him ready with white primer.

      This is just something that's been on the SoS for an embarrassing amount of time.  Finally making the effort to finish it up and move on.  Materials are corrugated cardboard on a base of stiff cardboard/MDF.  Rebar from paperclips.  Rocks, gravel, and sand, and a straw for the pipe.  Spray primed with black, wet brushed with gray hobby paint.  Next will be some highlights and a wash, some vegetation, and done.  Reaper Bones skelie for skale!  Pardon the rigged light box--lots of other house projects have my hobby room crammed with crap at the moment.
