fishnjeeps Posted April 1, 2016 Share Posted April 1, 2016 Since I now have a large amount of CAV Figures I now need some terrain so that I can play. This thread will be dedicated to making terrain for that purpose. To start, I went out and bought 10 sheets of foam core from the dollar store. So far, I've made 4 sets of what ill become rowhomes a large hirise building and a warehokuse structure. I also found a really good way to make homes out of something we all have laying around (or just threw away). Pics... I used hot glue to assemble these foam core buildings. The smaller ones will end up being 2 unit row homes. I'm using cardboard to make my roads. They still need to be painted but you can get the idea. The city I'm planning will be a really tight quarters area. Even the largest of CAV will fit between the buildings. The buildings are sturdy enough to hold even the heaviest of metal CAV on their roof. Infantry will be able to fight from the roofs and get better vantage points and setup traps. But thats only the beginning. I wanted some buildings that you can fight over the top of that won't block line of sight. Looking around I found a few empty blister pack plastics. I hot glued them down to some cardboard to make them rigid. A spray of rustoleum textured paint to look like concrete and they are starting to look more like a building. Plus, they are the perfect size to represent homes or habitats. A little detailing with some rms paints and I have a passable concrete house. Its not super detailed but on the table it will work out. I only used 1/2 of a sheet of foam core so far and I still have 9 more sheets to make more. I plan to be able to field a full 4'x8' city. So far. I've spent $20 in materials to make my terrain. I plan to use all of the boxes from Amazon purchases to make my own modular road system. Hopefully this will inspire other CAV players to make their own cheap terrain. 15 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
