Going green: quick weekend terrain

I've been working on some terrain pieces, namely tree stands and decided to flock them this morning. The trees are a mix of 1:100 and 1: 72 architectural trees I get from my favorite art shop. These were afixed on plywood bases cut into curvy, irregular shapes and texyured with a modelling compound. I had time on my hands this morning and the weather was perfect for doing hobby stuff in our patio.

So I got my glues ready and the flocking materials out. Aside from the sculpting material I used on the plywood bases, I tried to replicate forest vegetation using sawdust, a variety of grasses and foliage from Woodland Scenics and beach sand plus other found materials. I wnt to avoid a one-toned hue of grass green so I mixed three colors to come up with the effect. Here are some wip pictures.

Nothing fancy and the results are ok.

This wargaming group's been a source of inspiration ever since I discovered the wonderful world of miniature wargaming. Just look at that picture above and tell me you're not impressed. WOW! was all I could think off when I saw it.




The page has since given its last huzzah and I don't know what's become of the group, but I'm sure I'll be rereading the material they still have archived. A veritable treasure chest of miniature gaming gems, the page embodied the FUN side of miniature gaming, neither taking itself too seriously nor scrimping on the joys of the hobby and its subsidiary hobbies/crafts. It's a pity if such a wonderful resource and such a huge contribution to the hobby is lost. I discovered the page waaaay back then when…
