Third time is a charm

The third terrain piece for my custom-made Deathwatch Overkill board was finished recently. In fact I even completed the building of the fourth aswell but I think I’ll wait with the paint job until I have finished building the rest of the still missing terrain pieces. ...

The Spore-Cave

At that time the champions came upon a strange cave, lit from within by grotesque fungi that threw out a flickering emerald glare. Bestial shadows twisted and capered around the grotto’s walls, dark silhouettes of the vile monsters that stamped and chanted at the cavern’s heart. As the champions entered that glowing cave the toadstools gave a horrid shudder and began to utter muffled screams, spewing out clouds of drifting spores that soon filled the air with foulness. So warned, the beast cult that shrieked and cavorted within the cavern took up their blades, while their towering leader clutched at the ensorcelled amulet fragment that hung about his neck. The beasts’ screeches of devotion became sounds of anger ...

In the depths of Argos (new gaming board)

Since the release of “Deathwatch Overkill” I am working again on my Genestealer Cult. Because I really like this setting I am planing to build an own board with a mining theme just like in the board game for 40K. It will be a black board where I can place the self-made terrain pieces. You won’t be able to move on the black part as this will be supposed to be like a chasm. The first terrain pieces will be remakes of the card board pieces in the Deathwatch box. I am planing to use them later on for regular 40K, Deathwatch and Necromunda. To create these terrain pieces I came up with some scratchbuilds and 3D-prints which ...

The High Ground

With this two new terrain pieces I am happy to announce that this was the last step before I am going for a test match on the new board. Initially I wanted to build Amon Hen, the seat of seeing as a centerpiece. But while I was at it I figured the ruin on top of a hill would be really huge. That’s why I went for a regular hill instead. The mission “The High Ground” will now have a fitting piece of terrain as well. I worked with cork bark for the first time and was quite satisfied with the result. Will definitely give this another try soon. To get the board full I added another terrain ...

Fences in Middle Earth

Since Goatmörser almost completed his LotR board, I myself was highly motivated to start building scenery for LOTR / Hobbit as well. While searching the interwebs I stumbled upon a YouTube-channel of TWS (Tabletop Workshop) having several tutorials for quite good looking and yet not too difficult terrain-making. So I quickly got ready to build some fences during which I slightly changed the TWS-tutorial (but I’ll comment on that a bit later). For building the fences you’ll need: 2mm plastic card for the bases Styrodur pieces (about 15cm x 3cm x 0,5cm) BBQ skewers rattan cane (1,6mm) white glue (PVA) (personally I prefer Ponal) Sand (whatever you prefer) colours to match your gaming board colours for painting the fence ...

Growing a forest

Another batch of terrain for my new LotR board was just finished. I am going to come up with a bunch of other pieces soon and then the first match on the board is ready to go. The journey will then be over which isn’t a bad thing at all as I already have another terrain project in mind. ...

Remains

After the recent tournament my plans regarding my LotR/Hobbit projects changed quite a bit. I definitely need an own board to practice for the next tournament that I’m going to visit. That’ll most likely be the german championship (with 100 participants) coming summer. Which means I have to keep on working on my terrain and speed things up a bit. The other thing I have to take care of is that I need a good force aswell. I’ll have to try out some things here and there but I have to keep an eye on this as summer will be approaching faster than I would like. Well if you look at it from the point of ...
