Terrain Tuesday 1 - My old terrain

Hi All,

I've been meaning to start a terrain segment almost since I started this blog. So today is finally that day.


Remember the White Dwarf article on making rivers? Here it is in the Wargames Terrain book I found awhile back.


Here are a couple of the straight sections I started back in 1990.


My mail order Mighty Fortress. I can't for the life of me remember how much I paid for it. You can buy individual sections for stupid amounts on eBay right now.


My only two finished buildings, I've shown them before. The roofs are off and the thatch was a failed experiment.


The Inn.


Barn.


Blacksmith and stable.

I can't remember why I didn't finish these. It was probably because I moved out West and started college and my unintentional 20+ year hiatus from the hobby began.

I want to knock these out, but I'm seriously considering trying to open them up and make the interiors playable. I really liked Airborne's playable buildings and it's something I've always wanted to do.

We'll see what comes about.

Thanks for looking.

    1. Thanks Papfakis. Honestly it's the creative aspect of the hobby I love the most. Building it seems so much more satisfying. Also we didn't have access to all these fancy resin and mdf kits back in the old days.

  4. Looking good so far -- go ahead and finish!

    As far as the rivers, I used hardboard for my venture into river-making a couple years ago and it was fairly easy to work with and didn't warp at all. I haven't had as good of luck with corrugated cardboard.

    1. Hi Zero23, yes hardboard is the standard. I'm mainly trying this for two reasons. I started it way back when and still have the stuff, and it's in the book so I thought it'd be fun to go back and try it.

  5. For 20-year-old unfinished projects mate, they look sweet. You really should try to finish them, especially as they'd fit your Bretonnians rather well?

    1. Thanks Dai, finishing them for photographing my soon to be finished Brets is the plan.
