New Guy Old Stuff

Post by locomoticopter » Thu Jul 27, 2017 10:55 am

I will use this to share some of my old projects. At the moment I have time to post one comical pic. This was my first attempt at gaming terrain. I did it when I had the idea of using Mega Blok Halo figures to make my own game. Unfortunately it looked more like a deranged birthday cake than terrain. This is just a taste until I have more time.

To continue my new guy old stuff Here is a little more about my first piece. It is made with mostly 1/2 inch pink insulation foam. At the time I made this I had no clue what gaming terrain really consisted of. I eventually got over my apprehension about painting figures and gave up on the Halo idea.

Before I gave up on the Halo Mega Blok idea I built a few pieces of terrain as I watched tutorials of different techniques. Here is one I did after seeing a lava tutorial. It was just a test piece to try out the effect.

I also tried one with a little elevation.

A little more of my Halo terrain. I envisioned a refueling base.

After seeing a tutorial for a bunker I thought I would give one a try.

To continue, here is my first piece built with gamin figures in mind. I finally got up the courage to try painting figures. My first choice was the Reaper Bones series because they were cheap. This piece is pretty simple. The lava pit in the middle was done by filling in with a bunch of hot glue and forming it as it hardened. Then painting.

I saw a tutorial for a portal and decided to give it a try

This next piece was done after I saw a tutorial in which toxic liquid was made by mixing color with clear poly resin.

I think the original tutorial I watched that inspired this was some sort of spawn pit.

This piece was actually built as an entry for a competition on another site. The first terrain forum I joined was terragenesis.uk. It appears to be gone now because for at least a week now I have been getting a server not found error. That's what brought me here. It is a little more lively here to say the least. So the theme was all natural with bonus points for signs that a creature had been there. The size was limited to that of a CD. The fish skeleton and fire pit were my signs of creatures.

The water is clear silicon caulking. I got in a hurry and ended up with bubbles.

Now for my most recent and probably best piece. This also was an entry for a competition on the other site. The requirement was to build anything from a template. I found papercraft route 66 gas station and used it as a template. I was so happy with the haunted looks it got me looking for a zombie game. Zombicide was my choice. Very simple rules and cool minis.

So here we see a Space Marine lurking around.

Doesn't hurt to throw in an in progress shot. All of the wood frames are 1/8" x 3/16" balsa strips

Something else I like about Zombiecide is that custom character development is simplified. This is a Reaper Bones mini that I use. I named her GI Jane (I know reeeaaal original, right?).

Don't be ashamed of your early terrain attempts, no one starts out a master. For what it's worth your first Halo hill looks pretty realistic to me, and attempting lights on that bunker was a cool and brave move! Also glad to see you'll be joining in on the monthly group builds--we could use more eager competitors!
