Yeah, as I just started making models I still have a lot to get used to. Gotta experiment more about the quantity of water to add to the glue. You really have to add a drop or two max. I thought it was alot more at first.

So now I'm stuck with my 'not-so-fixated' sand. Should I reapply a layer of glue+sand on it, with thicker glue? Because the part where I added rocks holds on perfectly.

Thank Blue for the replies :D

Just rub your fingers across the sand to remove any loose pieces then reapply.

Hey, I just wanted to say thanks for this amazing tutorial... It helped me take the plunge and make my terrain pieces! Your step-by-step post really helped me get over the intimidation factor, and has got me inspired to start scratch-building all sorts of things!

Thanks again!

Here's a weeks worth of work, following your lead... I made these pieces modular so that I have lots of re-arrangement possibilities...

Hello!
I'm new here, and just wanted to say that this tutorial is genius!! My boyfriend plays warhammer and warmachine, and I'm just horrible at painting miniatures, but I wanted to get involved somehow, and you have made that extremely possible! So thanks!!

I have another question, how do you go about smaller/thinner/more fragile pieces? Because as I was working on a small rock, the glue couldn't hold.
Thanks :)


Also, just wanted to mention, if you forget to do the texture before and have already glued the pieces on, finger nails work real well for the small parts. Obviously don't go overboard, but I mean a good swipe with your nail works!!
