On Wednesday we had our first Skirmish campaign at work, which was great fun to get several small games in the same evening for a change.

Terrain seemed important so i looked around and put together this quick project that I did over three evenings - mainly to allow for drying between each stage. The work each evening was quite small.

Stage One

Looking around I finished off a bottle of sparkling water and that seemed the perfect base for a kiln/chimney for a small workshop building. With a few pieces of foam card I roughly formed the shell of the building and stuck some thin wood pieces over the joins to hide the connections. I then piled up filler around the base and let it set overnight, I forgot to take photos at this stage.

Stage Two

I cut up a box into small square to use as roof tiles and bricks on the chimney and stuck them all over the correct places to give some form. I used the box folds to create the gutter looking areas. Greenstuff was used to create the thicker brick stucture at the top and add some sticky out bricks.

Stage Three

Once dried and after a quick cheeky spray, to create a more realistic finish I rubbed astrogranite debris over the 'bricks' so that it collected in the gaps between the squares to get a mortar look. And sand and glue mix would probably of worked too. BeastsAndBoats_04.jpg.faadde2651b37844ca0cd815952fe683.jpgBeastsAndBoats_05.jpg.d8e54abec4e8a550e2e40860a545293d.jpg

Once that was dry - it was pretty fast i thin just splattered on some paint quick and built up some fast layers of drybrushed highlights. Gave that a few minutes to dry then started working washes over the model. the final touch was some flock and tufts...

Final touches were a couple of random assets from the bits box. I hope that gives some ideas for quick and easy (and very cheap) terrain
