Terrain article VI: Field of small volcanoes.

Fellows! It´s been a while since I post something, I´ve been quite busy lately. Today I´m bringing you a new cheap-quick-easy to made-terrain for your Wargames. It took me like one hour to make it, total. You can use this terrain to some dark sci-fi world, or maybe a mountain field.
To make this volcanoes you need:
  • Black and grey paint.
  • Sand.
  • PVA glue
  • Some old brushes.
  • Cardboard where the eggs come from.
  • A small piece of cardboard or wood to make the base.
  • That´s it!
First, just cut some part of the eggs´s cardboard, the amount of volcanoes you want in your terrain. Glue them to your base, then put some PVA glue to the base and add the sand.
Print them in black (in this case, you can use other color if you want to make the volcanoes in some grass terrain), then apply some dry brush with grey. And that´s all! Yes, the terrain is finish, and you can add some red paint to make the lava and any kind of detail you want.
Hope you like it!


And here is the video, in case you want to share it.

New miniatures!... and nothing to show this week.

This is a post with no terrain or miniatures to show, right now. I was very busy this week and I couldn´t finish some miniatures or terrains.
But I´m bringing you this, these are the new miniatures arrived me this week, to become part of my Circle Orboros and Khador armies! I really like Warmachine and Hordes from Privateer Press, so as soon as I can I will bring you some battle report.

Terrain article V - Steel fence part 1

Here I come with a new Terrain article, as I did with my last terrain project, I´m going to show you this in several parts, because until I could finish it will take some time. So this first part is how I started this.
Is a terrain piece for modern wargames, I don´t think futuristic, but you could use it there too.
First I cut some long-matchstick, and built them as seen on the pictures, then I cut some of
that cloth crosslinked by the measure I wanted and glue them to the matchsticks.
Second I glue all to a cardboard sheet (here you could use something else, more rigid).
Once all was dry, I primed in black and then started to paint it in grey (so the final color is starting to show up).
This terrain piece is being built, so as soon as I can I will upload more pictures, as I always say, this is an example of how I built this, is for you to take some ideas and build your own, even better. If you do this, please take some pictures and upload them so I can see them.
Hope you like it!

Terrain articles IV- Ruined stone tower. Part 2

Well friends, here comes the second part of the Ruined Tower I started last week (in the link you go the article part 1) this is a terrain piece which took me less than  two hours in total, of course, you have to let dry the paint, etc., so it was like two days to me, but it can be done in just one.
For this part what I did was prime it in black, then paint it grey, apply some wash with the black paint I used before ( I personally had some troubles with this) and then apply a dry brush. That´s it, that´s all.
And you have a good terrain to play, it looks fine, this is the basic finished ruined tower. I will still adding some stuff, but you can do it this friday and you will have it to play all weekend.
Hope you have enjoyed it.

Terrain articles IV- Ruined stone tower. Part 1

Well friends, today I´m bringing to you a new terrain piece I´m doing to my wargames battles. It´s the first part, I did not finished yet, but I want to show it to you.
It´s easy, cheap and quick to make terrain. All you have to do is to take an ice cream container, glue the cap upside down, to the top of the container with PVA glue (it´s in the images and easy to understand). Then, once it is dry, took a roll ball pen (doesn´t matter the color, I used the green one because it was what I have next to me) and mark what are going to be the bricks.
When you have all the bricks you want marked, with a knife or a cutter, cut part of the container, as if it where destroyed. Then, using a spray can paint, apply it only to the borders, it will melt the container and make a ruined effect.
As I told you, it is not finished yet, I have to paint it, but with this you have the base to start working and be creative. Hope you like it.
