Blue's Terrain *Update* 1/21/12*

Post by Blue » Thu Sep 01, 2011 6:15 am

I've been itching recently to make some terrain.
Image

Nothing special yet just starting off.
They've been working on my building and I've been dumpster diving the whole time. Managed this pile of free foam!
Image

Some hand made brick ruins... I guess that means I wasn't going for perfect pretty bricks. More of a moshed brick look. As if there were maybe a dozen or more molds for the bricks and none of them were exactly the same.
Image

An archway I was working on last night...
Image

Any and all comments welcomed.
I really appreciate any feedback on my terrain, feel free to nitpick!

Plenty more to come....

Nice find and the archway looks good so far cant really comment though till you get a little further on.

Btw that sort of foam is near imposible to find in the UK.

wow i just spent ten minutes trying to work out if those sheets of foam were floating in water... looks great so far - did you use a biro to make the bricks?
Please assume that i would be saying good day - but i live in england.
So its raining.
So its not a good day.

Thanks dudes...

Stevey> Yeah, I know. It's a shame... Just say the word bud, wouldn't be hard to get some of this into a box. :wink:

Luna> Free foam! Wahoo.... Making a lot of these cd's at the moment. I've got some ideas though...

blOOdngutz> It sure is dude but I find it relaxing in a way.

Mortalitas> :lol: floating eh? Took me a minute to figure out what you were talking about! If a pencil and ruler is biro then yes... What's biro?

More updates to come either tonight or early tomorrow.
Thanks for the replies again.

Biro is just a ball point pen.


Yeah might have to take you up on that blue. Had an idea for a little project and cant do it without foamcard.

Finished off the other archway and some columns...
Image
Here's the whole set, or part of...
Image
Image
Perspective...
Image

Started working on the next set in mind...
Image

I need to set up an area for taking decent wip pics.

Probably finish off another set then I plan on making larger pieces to complete the individual sets.
Should I make this a sort of how to, explaining how I make and paint certain things throughout the builds?
Would you be interested in something like that?

Nice stuff, Blue! Personally, I love making terrain on old CDs. They're about the right size for a smallish piece, and they're quite flat. I have quite a few CDs from old textbooks that I've been planning on turning into terrain pieces for a while now - you've inspired me! :D

Well, that's the point... Inspiration. :wink:
I agree, CD's are perfect...
Image
How's that for some inspiration! :twisted:

Update:
Finished off the temple ruins except for some rubble and sand...
Image
Image

Added some rocks and built up some areas. Still need to make another one of these too before adding sand to the lot...
Image

And started working on the third set... Another ruin set but more modern.

:lol:

Update: Working on the centerpiece for the one set. It will be a ruined cathedral once done. Opposite the tower will sit the front face of the building which still needs to be thought up.
