So I've painted up a couple of sample pieces of my 4bot tiles and to try out an ice recipe. I thought I'd get some feedback. It seems a bit too sea glass for me.

It seems you have the right colors. Both the green and blue can work. I think you need more white and maybe wind striations on it.  If you search Tube U you can find some terrain and base examples- Painting with Marrok seemed to have some good hints (striations and edging in white, etc).

I might see if I have anything else to use as a base. I want some translucence, hence the inks.

And I found a deep turquoise, a phtalo blue (green) - I didnt pay attention which is which(I think the phtalo is bottom right) , and turquoise (top) , which is "opaque."

I kinda like all of those better. Almost feel like it would be cool to have that original phtalo as a colour for the middle of the tile, with one of the others top and bottom. Not sure that's really doable.

Any preferences?

      I've been wanting a few quick space saving buildings for  war gaming. I decided to make a few false fronts,  but use a simplified biscuit (instead of a tab like many paper models) to make them free standing. Rolling out the brick pattern would help. 
      These would be for my foam boards (insert link here sometime).  But it turns out my plan of 3 row buildings (8.25x 6 )with separate corner pieces isn't going to fit. Need to decide whether to split up into 2 building pieces  (5.5 in long x 6 in high) or do corner and 1 building and have them  connect. I also now need figure out whether to plan for an alley when I didn't in my boards. Hmm. Stay tuned.

      I few years ago I emptied a can of spray foam for some hills. I decided to hack up one to see if I could do some scatter that was more rock  pile than grassy hill like I've previously done (insert link to foam experiments thread).
      About a month ago I hacked the foam hill, and last night I glued it to a dead DVD as a base and clamped it.

      This is what it looks like now.

      I'm going to let it dry a bit more then give it some goop, then a modge seal. Then drybrush, and maybe some flock.

      Not sure what to do with those bodies in webs on the slot. Need to go back and look at the pics to see if I should cut them or see if I have a spare slotta base to stand them up.
