Title: Terrain, Ethiopian and otherwise
Post by: lowlylowlycook on 24 September 2018, 01:07:51 AM
I'm felling a bit of an itch to get back into generating some terrain so I figure I might as well start up terrain log here.  The two current directions are for expanding and improving my 28mm Ethiopian countryside and also some LotR inspired fantasy terrain. 

Around the last turn of the century, some eucalyptus trees were imported into Ethiopia from Australia.  It turns out that for whatever reason they prospered and one of things that made an impression on my while I was in Ethiopia were all the piles of eucalyptus logs everywhere.  It certainly seemed to be one of the main construction materials used, including some scaffolding that you couldn't pay me enough to climb.

Anyway, I'm going to need some trees so how to go about it.

This guy (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IB6gMvN78fA) makes some very nice gum trees out of Seafoam/Super Trees but I highly doubt they'd survive more than one battle.  It does give me something to aim for.
(https://i.imgur.com/9BRdZd9.png)

I guess I should make some armatures out of wire but I'm feeling a bit lazy so decided to buy some.  Here is the first test with just some clump foliage.
(https://i.imgur.com/baguAyD.jpg)

Main problems seem to be that it give a too dense impression of the leaves and also the clumps seem more effected by gravity than by the spray adhesive I used.  But not bad by any means.

A second test using bits torn off of a kind of 3D mesh that's for keeping leaves out of gutters.  You can see it before and after flock was added.

(https://i.imgur.com/4GqD4dc.jpg)(https://i.imgur.com/MQUdcLk.jpg)

Since the mesh is hot glued to the armature, I think these would be quite robust.  Next step is to try and match the shape of the prototype, use smaller meshes and maybe shop for some different flock.  Also paint the bark!

Works for me, Cookie !  :)

Looks rather splendid, to my eyes. ! :-bd

(Does the mesh for keeping leaves out of the gutter work well ? I've often thought of getting some to save one of the 'horrible' outside jobs.)

Cheers - Phil (Who's hoping the above question doesn't derail the thread, after just two posts !! )

It works for us, it's a pain to fit, but in the long run saves all those ladder moments.

Oh, nice trees too.

Those trees look great 8). One of the main issues with terrain and especially trees and hedges, is balancing realism with durability on the table. I err towards the latter due to how I have to store my stuff and wanting it to last a long time with minor running repairs.

I totally agree they got to be durable

I'll have to defer to Lemmy on this since I don't actually have any gutters.   ;D

A new attempt with some of the branches snipped off, some smaller mesh bits and (in another fit of laziness) I sprayed the armature with stone texture spray.  In my defense, I don't really have any spray paint that is light colored but not actually white.

Title: Re: Terrain, Ethiopian and otherwise
Post by: lowlylowlycook on 04 October 2018, 06:18:44 PM
Hmmmm.   

I'm quite undecided.   My first attempt was with the buff color and it  immediately impressed me as the way to go.   But I got distracted and picked up the wrong bottle to do the gate and at the time it seemed a bit off.

But the weird thing is that when they are side by side like that I like the flat grey better.

Hmmmmm.

Funny you should say that.  I took these out to my local shop to get an in-person opinion and also to see them under the lights there.

At the counter, the lighting was such that I could hardly tell the difference.  Under some of the brighter lights you could and both looked good.

I think that I'll go with the buff color and then do varying amounts of dry brushing of the more neutral one.  Should give the whole thing a bit of variation.  But first I'll have to test out the scheme on these Osgiliath ruins that I picked up.


Title: Re: Terrain, Ethiopian and otherwise
Post by: lowlylowlycook on 09 October 2018, 03:09:56 PM
(https://i.imgur.com/XZTsbog.jpg)   

Did a bit of dry brushing to get the base color on the stone walls.  After some experimentation it seems that the best method was to put enough pressure so that the sides of bristles are doing the work. .  Also put a base goat on the wood floors .  Just noticed that I forgot the wood doors....
For some unknown reason I decided that the tile floors need a pattern to break them up.

I thought it was just me! I haven't had a good dry brush since I started using acrylics. I've switched to weathering powders.

Put together my second set of Goblin Town terrain.  For this second set I primed the pieces with a dark green and then tried to apply the tan lightly.
I haven't yet put a wash down and I think it already looks playable.

Started experimenting on some MDF building for Rohan/Dark Ages/Medieval.  Sarissa on the left Warbases on the right.

(https://i.imgur.com/gdpBGRr.jpg)

Using some texture medium with some pale yellow paint.  I like how the wood texture on the Warbases kit but the cross beam is attached to the roof so I can't apply the texture paint to the triangle over the door.

I will take a picture of it when I can.   In short it's a triangular prism of mesh that you would use to fill up your gutters leaving no room for leaves but letting water through.

With paint an a dry brush.   I think the finer, brown fur gives a more realistic result but more realistic isn't always better on the table top.

My village so far

(https://i.imgur.com/Dk1oQCP.jpg)

I've been using the brown fur but trying to get more texture out of it.  The main reason I've been staying with it is that it is less likely to show the underlying fabric through the fur.  Also I've been folding the fur around the lip of the roof.

I've got two more buildings painted but for the roofs needing painted.   Then it will be onto the larger buildings.

I think the cow might be in a ditch while the man is on a bit of higher ground and is closer

It is probably a Boran or similar breed with bumps above the shoulders

Hmmm, of everything I've seen this method of making cliffs seems to combine realism with scalability.   Also, I think the concept might well apply to other materials or tools.

Well good old Mel is my main inspiration for my projects but if I wanted to make a truly huge mesa, I don't think I'd want to use molds and plaster.

In any case, I'm back from the beach and managed to plug these plugs with spray insulation and then cap them off with sculptamold:

The one at center back is a half plug for the table edge.

And now for something completely different...

Some of the scenarios happen indoors but I don't really have a desire to build a whole set of terrain for that.  I ended up watching a bunch of Crooked Staff Terrain and was thinking that his 2.5D stuff was simple enough to to knock out quickly.

Well the nice thing about this paper-craft stuff is that I can work inside the house and keep an eye or ear on my mom, which will be necessary for a bit.  Also, I find it quite relaxing to not be worrying about what color to use.

Otherwise, I have the problem where I'm thinking of half-finishing that cork plugs and hills and using for Martian terrain before finishing it.  But that depends on what my hobby priorities are and I'm just too tired to think about it.  I should dry brush them, I admit.

Currently I'm working on the system used to put stuff "into" the walls.  The idea being to leave the floor space open for all the 1" bases

A couple prototypes for a library and a tavern bar:

(https://i.imgur.com/q2pYgLR.jpg)

They are just shelves that sit on the wall.  A refinement will be to cut away 1/2" of the foam support so they can fit in with neighboring tiles.

There are quite a few door variations.  Also seen: a couple fireplaces and a broken table and busted down doors.

My plan to turn the small wooden doors into double doors was slightly derailed by the fact that flipping over the texture would reverse the force of gravity on the handles.

Eventually I'd like to make a river and I'm thinking that some ponds/swamps might be good practice.



Cut out some 1/2" Foam.

(https://i.imgur.com/5JyXzJO.jpg)

Then I got out my (perhaps too large) butane  torch to burn in some ponds.  I think I got a bit close to the edge with these.

(https://i.imgur.com/QouMM8X.jpg)

Some swampy ground with smaller pools of water.

(https://i.imgur.com/aZI8hxG.jpg)

Meanwhile I'm also thinking that I might try and teach some terrain making using some craters as the project:

(https://i.imgur.com/qY5dAxG.jpg)


Now I'm waiting on both some XPS foam to give these a sturdier base and some resins for the water effects.  I guess I should also look into how to make some reeds.

A few tests.  Not done the resin on the swamp.  The crater is a bit tall because I used the last scrap of my 1/8" basing foam on the swamp.  The reeds are made from some "Cinnamon Brooms" I picked up in the grocery store checkout lane.

My swamp is better smelling than the average.

Thanks guys.

Poured some resin.  The long cure time takes a bit getting used to compared to 5 minute epoxy.  Bubbles seemed to come mostly from the "algae" and the blowtorch seemed better than using a straw to exhale CO2.

(https://forum.reapermini.com/uploads/monthly_2019_10/Swamp_5.thumb.jpg.055a758f897fea13d9cc3d8d0b3eb14d.jpg)

I had two different dye setups.  The darker was using black brown and green ink.  The clearer was blue and green food color.  I think that whatever is more realistic, it's more fun to have the clear water.  I'll aim for something in between next time.



Also thinking about whether it would be better to flock the ground after the resin cures so it does't get soaked up out of the pools as much.

Actually,  I was debating whether I should submerge some Mantic skeletons I have or if would be easier to slice some Reaper Bones in half since the plastic is soft.  Then again the Mantic guys are quite "alive" and might be better.

Just a few such pieces would give a LotR feel to a swamp.

Like I mentioned, the darker pool (on the left) has some artist ink added (they were bought to make washes for for my Orcs and Goblins army so I had black, brown and green), the more clear pool has some food coloring added. 

For rivers and even ponds I'll definitely be painting the areas that should be deeper areas darker.

Interesting.  I knew that the Ethiopian Emperors  used the ambas as prisons for people that had a bit too good a claim to the throne.  Since the mesa top could be farmed commerce with the outside world could be minimized. 

Normally, I'd associate stone houses with Tigray.  Also, if that village is really 900 years old then for long part of that, it would be one of the larger towns in Ethiopia.  Like I said, interesting.
