It's about time I post my first own pictures. I joined this forum about one year ago and I had never built any terrain before. The inspiration and tutorials I found here or through this forum were just incredible. So it didn't take very long before I started building my first terrain. After some easier things like hills and stuff that didn't really fit to each other I decided to go for one single theme in my next terrain pieces. And who wouldn't enjoy playing on a ruined cemetery?
I started with some modular walls and the cemetery gate (insert pantera riff here) centrepiece. Simple pink foam walls (except that the foam actually was green) about 1/2'' thick, some 2''-2 1/2'' high, brought into shape with hobby knife, pencil and sandpaper.
Painting was easy standard work as well: basecoated with black, drybrushed with 2 or 3 different shades of grey, a few brown washes as stains to add a little colour. I then flocked the pieces with static grass and moss and added some foliage as eyecatchers. Turned out pretty nice in my opinion.
My wife produced that incredible wooden gate for me. She cut each single board from balsa wood and spent some effort on making the gate look like it's already been hanging in its hinges for some time...
Then came my birthday and my wife somehow managed to make my in-laws give me those amazing cemetery bits (and other cool terrain stuff) from www.tabletop-world.com that I had shown her recently. In-laws had barely left the house when I already started on building some small pieces with tombstones. By now I have even more of those pieces, but I only have pictures of these. I'm not really sure whether I'd use these pieces as linear obstructions, rough terrain, scenario objectives or simply to make the gaming table look more awesome...
My latest piece then was the ancient tomb entrance. I'd really like to show you some close-ups but I can't find my real camera anymore, so blurry cellphone pics is all I can give you. And the closer to the terrain pieces I get with my phone the blurrier the images.
But for now, 'nough said. Here are the pictures:
