To be honest, they look somewhat sloppy. You should have flocked the base first to get a better coverage, and the sprue could have been cleaned up better

I understand it is, and i didn't spend much time oni, as I had tomake three, if I had made one perhaps it would have been much better, and I don't have flock and I really wanted a grassy look to it so i painted the sand that I have instead, and as for the covering part I have decided to make half of my gaming board to represent the land of gold so if u look very closely, the blank parts are actually golden, and my HD cam is currently no where to be found.

I see the gold now. What I recommend is getting your hands on some cork from either bottles you're done using or more preferably a hobby store. They are easy to paint, and adding battle damage is simple. They look like modern tank traps and tend to be used more often.

don´t let it get talked down, they look good
firemanmm,
this is supposed to be cheap and build with stuff everyone has
as soon as you say go out buy x from a hobby store you have failed the assingment
this is supposed to be mass production, and if the sprues were celaned they wouldn´t have their weathered look
Nonsense!

I'm not "talking them down", what I am saying is that mass produced terrain doesn't usually fit well on a table. If it doesn't look right, then it won't feel real. There are ways to make any piece of trash look great on a table. What I AM saying is that those particular examples seem rushed, and overall sloppy. I am not insulting the creators ability to make terrain, just voicing my honest opinion.

I think they look pretty good. Simple and cheap!

Any way you could get us some bigger pics for the voting thread bud? Maybe about twice the size. They're a little hard to see due to their size...
