Now that I've knocked out a few smaller projects and got back into the groove of painting I think it's time to tackle something a little bigger. Now this project has been on my to do list for awhile but after recently starting a Rangers of Shadow Deep campaign it has become apparent just how much it needs to get done. It's time to start my big terrain project.
After our big move I saw that I actually had the space to own and store some terrain. Believe me that right there was all the prompting I needed to start collecting. So little by little I amassed quite the collection of sci-fi, modern, and fantasy set pieces in addition to a lot of smaller scatter pieces.
I figured all my small scatter pieces would make for a good start. Using poster putty I attached everything to slats, trying my best to keep the three genres separate.
As I was excited to start in on some of the easier pieces I even forgot to take a picture of the first set I had planned to paint. So here are all the stoney pieces after their basecoat and wash.
I had hoped to get a little further tonight but the evening got away from me. This is all the more unfortunate as I wont get back to it until Thursday at the earliest, but hey at least its started.

I've been waiting to post this until I have enough, but I've just been working on random pieces of scatter terrain in between other projects.
Any 3D printed parts are done on my Creality Ender 3.
Trees from EC3D
Trees from Dark Realms
Barrel, +3 Barrel of Sundering (Warhammer props)
Wood bundle, Alchemist's Table and Shelf from Vae Victis, I've honestly forgotten who the other designs were from.
"The beacons are lit! Gondor calls for aid!"
Beacon Tower from RMPrintables
Lounge Chair from Impact! Miniatures, awning from Warhammer, weapon pile from The Hobbit, treasure piles from Reaper Miniatures.
Fantasy Objective Tokens by PhysUdo on Thingiverse.
Ogre Totem from Warhammer, Town Fountain 3D print from unknown, Alchemist's Wares & Firestick Bundle from Vae Victis, Sandbags by MegaBlox, one tree/odd plant is an old Marauder Giant club and the other is from a Gandalf action figure.
Last week my wife and I started a Ghost Archipelago campaign; for anyone interested I already wrote up a battle report here. Unfortunately that game showed me just how small my fantasy terrain collection really is. The prospect of playing a campaign on a half filled table didn't sit well, so I got to work.
A few hours over a couple of nights yielded good results.
A couple of winter pieces for regular Frostgrave even made it into the mix. Unfortunately I'm out of snow at the moment so they're not quite done.
So my daughter just had her first birthday a couple weeks ago and while plenty of people showed up we did end up bringing home a lot of leftovers, dessert in particular. We had about a quarter of a sheet cake and a few cupcakes too. Those cupcakes in particular though had a little something extra, topping each one was a plastic ring. Well I have to admit I couldn't help myself and the wheels started turning.
After maybe a couple hours from start to finish my "Fabulous" guardsmen" now have a "Fabulous" barricade/firing line. With its very large coverage I think this piece may be better suited to Killteam than 40K though.
Here is our current adventuring party for Iron Kingdoms. We started a new campaign shortly after Reapercon, so I was able to make use of several of the convention minis.
This party is quite an odd mix of races. Lately, I've been quite fond of having a semi-cohesive color pallet for our adventuring parties. The last one I did was all in cold blues, so with this one I went for a very warm pallet.
Lil is an investigator who 'secretly' is a Thamar Advocate. She's just the stock mini of the vampire hunter from Reapercon (by Bob Ridolfi)
This Pygmie Troll is very fond of hitting things and also alcohol. He was made by resculpting the head and hands from the Jason Weibe's Dwarf Brewmaster (07015)
Our resident Bone Grinder was made from Bobby Jackson's River Widow (03913). I only made superficial changes to her (adding a few extra bone-grindy items to her belt).
For our Trollkin Axe Flinger, it turns out that we already had the perfect mini. This is the version from the Undercity Board Game.
This Outcast Skorne Bushwacker/Warlock was made by simply head swapping a Malifaux rifleman.
This Lazy Cyclopes (under the command of the Warlock) was a sculpt that I made quite a few years ago. I showed it off to several sculptors at Gencon, and they all gave me some pointers on things that I could improve on. Still, I was fond enough of him that I decided to paint him up.
