Terrain Day

I know we have been silent lately, but that is the calm before the storm!

Okay, who am I kidding.  We are all frantically trying to update our armies to sixth edition and get them painted up for OFCC in August.  We did still manage to get a day aside and do some good work.  With a barbecue, some beer, foam, bitz, and boyz we set to work.

Between some PVC pipes and some other plastic terrain kits we knocked up some pipe world terrain.

These provide some partial line of sight blocking and good cover for infantry models.  While providing a different but aesthetic look to the table.

To provide more scatter terrain and narrative style tables we produced a few more pieces of rubble and supply depots.  These are perfect for filling the voids between medium and large terrain pieces, they aren't game changers but they fill in gaps and look cool.

These bits of ruin are scavenged from blue foam scraps and the dredges of our bitz box.

These supply depots are based on resin casts done by Magnus and spruced up with spare weapons from various kits.  These are some of my favorite terrain as it actually looks like something worth fighting for.  And really provides a unique piece for a battle field.

Of course we need a lot of effective filler terrain and what does that better than hills?  Nothing!

I also started on some trees.  I will be posting a tutorial on these soon!
