GB52 - Rivers - Complete

Post by wizardv12222 » Sun Jan 05, 2014 2:11 pm

Ok, I started on some Rivers last month, figured, I needed to get the pictures taken and uploaded. I was going to start to lay down some gravel and sand, but my bucket is empty... and it's cold outside, I'll just do it later :wink:

Can't really see the detail yet since it is still white, but once the gravel does down, I think it will pretty good.

Well I figured I better get a move on with this terrain, so I textured the banks yesterday...

And today, I did the first layers of paint on the banks and water. Letting them dry now, and I'm hoping to get highlights done tonight.

So far, I'm happy with how these are looking, but thoughts anyone??

They are pretty darn good!
I like the color variation in the water.
And I have been getting run into the house from the cold too this month.

I darkened up the water and added some more color into the banks. I'm still not quite happy with the banks, and I'm thinking of doing a wash over all or parts before I start in on some flock. But I think the water color is good and am ready to put a layer of water effect over the top.

added the water effect. Only thing left is to add some flock to the banks to break up all that brown.

My boy and I played a game on them today, I think they work really well. The banks are not too steep to set minis on, they look nice, and there is enough to go corner to corner if I want. I think they will work great on my table!

Well I added some greenery, flock and stuff to one of the sections and really, I prefer them before I added anything, so I'm going to call these rivers done as is.

Later on I may revisit the flock, but for now I like them a little more barren.

Here are a couple more pics to look at.

Those are really good. Do you have a tutorial?

Wiz, what are the bases made of? The pieces look great but it looks like there might be a bit of warping going on.

I didn't make a video for these, so no tutorial. The bases are mdf, there is a little warpage going on. Next time I would use a denser mdf that might hold up to the spackle better.

Wiz, do you think making the pieces shorter might help prevent warping? You look like you have a really long river there.

Maybe. . But each section is only 2 feet. There are three sections in the newest pictures (2 are connected)
