Wargames Terrain

Postby Troy Kealley on Mon Jul 24, 2006 4:12 pm

Finally finished off some of the Sudan terrain I've been making for a fellow tabletop wargamer (in payment for the Something Wicked printing in case you were wondering how I could afford that!) so I thought I'd share...

The pics are pretty big to retain the detail so careful if you have a slow connection.

FYI they are made from foamcard, cardstock and balsa, and are scaled for 25mm miniatures.

I remember my brief love affair with tabletop gaming.

It stopped about the time I needed to make some terrain, I just couldn't commit myself to the time and effort it took to make a landscape (and painting those tiny miniatures).

Because of this, I have absolute respect for people who actually do spend the time and effort to make stuff like this. Very impressive Troy. I am heartened to see all the extra hardwork you've put behind Something Wicked 2.

wonderful and inspiring.

I'm making terrain for a friend, but got caught up in figuring out the botanical rationale for the alien plants, how they reproduce and what bits do what :)... I also want to make a gingerbread house, complete with roving bands of ducks and garden gnomes.

i never let logic get in the way of my terrain making - especially the sci-fi stuff. make it first, figure it out what it is after :D

no but it's fun, they may seem to be bits of plastic assembled from a kit, but these frondy palm thingies are actually a kind of fungi, cresting when they need more energy or to reproduce, they each plant produces thousands and thousands of spores which fertilise the nodules, some nodules are brightly coloured, to attract animals to spread the nodules further, and some contain a neurotoxin which provides a highly nourishing seed bed for new fronds to develop from. Like the acacia the vast amount of spore they produce allows them great genetic variety and have sub-species fitting every ecological niche. Some are domestically cultivated and some will aggressively implant you if you brush them lightly.
