Standing Stones

Postby Ben Brownlie » Tue May 16, 2006 6:31 pm

Ok, so it's not a release, but it's for the table top so I thought I'd stick the pic up here

Here's my standing stones. Bascially it was an experiment with polystyrene so see how it can be used in terrain making (me not being that much of a pro at that) and I think it went ok. Anyhow, a few stones and some moss later this is what it ended up like

More will follow I am sure

Only thing I would add would be some washes of green and brown mainly around the bottom of the stones. Bit of variation to the greys.

TCR hooked now are you. :lol:

Its the smell that gets you.
Dont drink them though.....too bitter.

The washes are a very easy way to add variation to the stone. I always use the technique on stone bases. Paving etc.

More stones probably... and a hill or two :)

I need to get some more generic celtic/fantasy table top stuff together first as the majority of my tarrain collection is near future or sci fi. I do have the Celtos ruined keep and longhall to do and then on to some hills and stuff and some huts for the Gaels, but that all depends on time

I had seen them before but my snob factor got in the way of hollow-plastic-mould-stuff (shame on me). Is it any good? How does it paint up and does it cope with the rigours of gaming... also known as dropping my chariot on top of it by accident :oops:

Is that a euphemism?
It is pretty hard wearing, the plastic is thicker than the old bellona stuff. I like the way it paints up. I undercoated with black spray and then painted with matt emulsion, (same as I use for my game boards) and the odd bit of acrylic here and there
