  1. In the the rules for Cover it says: "Add 1 to save rolls for a unit if all of its models are wholly on or within a terrain feature when the rolls are made" My interpretation of this is that it is allowed for models in the unit to have its base being outside of the terrain as long as the base is within the terrain. However, I have experiences of people interpreting this as all models need to be wholly within the terrain. What is correct?
  2. Hey mighty TGA Community! I've stumbled upon this Desert Terrain Piece on Warhammer Community. This is the exact type of stone i wish for my desert terrain, especially the very bright, nearly orange type of spots on the stone. Sadly, the article only explains how to do the weathered bronze and i just cant find any colour recipe that immitates this type of "orange" sandstone. The picture and the article is from june 2017 and im eager to achieve the same desert stone effect. Maybe someone here has any ideas how to achieve that? Thanks in advance!
  3. Hi all! Since the GW Wyldwood is so expensive... (need like 6 of them) im looking for ways to get something close to it...For a smaler fee. - If you made your own, how? And how much did it cost you? - Do tornaments often aprove home made Wyldwood? If its the same sice as the original. Please help a frustrated and poor Sylvaneth player /Kimbo
  4. If both players have faction specific terrain who sets theirs up first? Is it a straight roll off?
  5. My first model, the chapel in my previous blog (link), had been quite a large model and while it had been a fun experience from which I learnt a lot it seemed like it would be better for the next steps to try something a bit smaller with a lot less parts. The first of these was a memorial model that was still relatively large so it would block line of sight. This was made in 3 pieces as shown above in order to make it manageable to print on a variety of print bed sizes as well as making it less risky (Nothing worse than getting to the end of a print then something going wrong.). I also wanted to leave the top off in order to make it easy to install another model as a statue. It's a bit more awkward printing decent character models than buildings and scenery so my plan is to add a Chaos Warrior model as the statue to this model at some point. In general I was quite happy with how it turned out though and it was good having something that could be printed in less than a day instead of about 3 days. In addition to above I had been working on some smaller extra bits but the main next building I decided to work on was a smaller version of the original chapel as a mausoleum. Again I wanted something a bit smaller but that would fit in with the same style as I was planning on making a series of terrain with a similar theme so i'd have a Death or Shyish set. This model came out as 16 parts. The ground floor: and the roof: Part of what I wanted to do this time was as it had a modeled roof I wanted it to be easily detachable so I created some indents in the tops of the pillars and in the base of the end sections of roof. This allowed some small 5mm diameter magnets to be glued in and so I can detach the roof as needed. The next step is to finish off the extra bits i've been working on and I should have a good set of graveyard themed terrain which i'll hopefully be able to post about soon (and hopefully be able to give my Aelf Loremaster a rest too).
  6. I designed and commissioned this piece of furniture for my "warhammer room" recently. I stole the gaming lip idea from card tables and from the "Table of Ultimate Gaming" but decided to go with a design I thought was a little more aesthetic for our home! I went to the warhammer citadel this weekend in Grapvine, Texas (flew down there for the warhammer new player expo) and saw that they had a few "Table of Ultimate Gaming" setup, and I'm glad I went with a furniture maker because the wood quality on those tables is less than I'd imagined when considering it. We used an Alder for the wood and had stained two different colors. I made it 42" tall so I wouldn't have to bend too much (I have a bad back), which is really tall. My wife might need a stepping stool! Other than that, there's not much else to change- the table surface fits the 6x4 play mats perfectly! I'll be getting a bunch of terrain for it soon, but in the meantime (besides, of course, showing it off), I wanted to see other people's gaming tables- whether it's fine woodworking, cool terrain, modeled ground etc to help give me some ideas or just to stare at!
  7. Living in an area with very few players, much of my time is spent scratch building terrain and modular boards, this piece is still drying Materials used XPS Foam Sand Hand crafted flock (assorted colours) 12 mm grass tufts (hand crafted from static grass not purchased tufts) Coconut fibre Skewers Spray Pain Craft Paint PVA glue
  8. I did Architecture at university not long ago and as part of that I started to experiment with the possibilities of getting my models printed rather than the traditional methods (and familiar to anyone that makes terrain) of mountains of foamboard, knives and creating a big mess with glue. Being a poor student I ended up only getting one printed at a local business I found online. Not needing (or being able to afford) a large model and not being familiar with the best way to get it printed I sent over my entire, unedited building model and after a few false starts below was the result. Around the same time I learned of a friend of a friend buying their own printer who was looking for some bits to print out to see what it could do. In the spirit of running before you can walk I took a local building for inspiration, modeled up a wall section and sent him the files to see what the result would be. The end result, while there being room for improvement, were quite encouraging so I decided to go ahead to try and finish the model using a printer of my own and modelled up the rest of the parts and had some fun along the way figuring out how it would all fit together. In the end the model came in at 56 parts as shown in the renders below of all the parts together and an exploded view. Because the model is supposed to be interacted with I thought it was better not to bother with the roof so you can place models inside, not have to mess about with taking it on and off (and storing it) and just to save on material on something that I didn't expect to be on most of the time. Below is the model assembled and painted. In the end I decided to print out at a scale of 1:50 which is a bit bigger than the traditional scale but since the models have been increasing in size over time anyway I thought it fit well with those currently in use.
  9. I’ve enjoyed being inspired by so many of your works, I figured it was time to start my own painting log. In general I just paint what strikes my fancy. I’m rarely concerned with performance on the table, because I play very infrequently. Generally I just try to get a good solid paint job, nothing too fancy. I’ll kick off with my Khorne. I paint them more than most my other stuff. Anyway, hope you enjoy!
  10. I've been thinking of trying to build a modular river system for use on my gaming tables. The project is still at the early stages, but i've been sketching different sections, and feature ideas and trying to work out what it practical. There are two approaches to take; The more traditional route involves copious amounts of papier mache, and would be reasonably cheap, with few restrictions on size. The more extravagant route would be to use 3d printing. This would have the advantage that I can model different sections in sketchup or a similar program and make much more standardised elements, mixing and matching to produce a comprehensive set of parts. I've got lots of ideas to start working up, but the thing i'm most wondering about is size. How wide does a river section need to be in order to be useful on a battlefield without dominating it. I think a 10 cm wide channel would be achievable, but comparing this to the size of 28mm scale figures it seems a bit narrow. More a stream than a river. I could make sections with only one bank, so that they can be combined to create wider sections, so that isn't necessarily a problem. Can anyone who has built terrain of this sort report on what sizes they chose, and what works well for a typical game. Also how many bridges or other crossings do you tend to include for different sizes to table? Many thanks.
  11. Hi everyone, Recently had a flurry of activity, and I've finished off a scratch built chaos temple based around Tesco Halloween skulls from last October, plus finally began to go back and document my ongoing gamesmastered narrative campaign from the start. Here's a few pictures, as with my last big terrain project I'll do an article on construction in the next few days (check out HERE if you're interested) ? Mark (IG: @hippy_hammer)
  12. I hot glued some pillow stuffing to a flickering LED candle from the dollar store. I sprayed it with a metallic spray paint. Then some flat grey and finally some clear spray to make it all firmer. I didn't bother waiting between coats. I did concentrate the darker colours towards the bottom. I have a campaign coming up so this is part of the plan to make a modular set of terrain that can be used to represent any realm as needed. The miniature is just a reaper wizard I painted as a bright wizard. Sorry about the bad video quality. 3039.t.mp4
  13. I'm looking at building out a table or three and have run into some difficulty locating good fantasy scatter terrain. I've found plenty of companies with lots of beautiful buildings and such, but the selection of smaller items that can be used as simple cover, obstacles, or to just breathe more life into the table seems to be very thin. Things such as barrels, planters, benches, stockades, signs, lamps, carts, fountains, fire pits, etc. It seems that sci-fi is replete with easy to find high quality scatter. Maybe I'm just looking in the wrong places? Any help would be much appreciated!

    Brayherd Herdstone. Scratch built using a piece of Driftwood.
  15. With the Legions Of Nagash and Malign Portents I have finally found the motivation to finish the Shyish themed table I started awhile back. I collected a bunch of terrain for my Shyish board, assembled it but never got around to painting it. My hope is to really get on it. Here are my first two pieces, a set of the Hobbit Ruins and a Shyish themed Realmgate.
  16. Has anyone thought of anyway of making, or buying, actual houses and stuff. The GW kits are good, but they're always ruins; apart from the Lake-Town house, I cant find any Thoughts?
  17. Hi all, I just finished up making a Warscyer Citadel out of recycled junk and bitz because my toddler insists she can't eat large plastic terrain kits! Here is a before and after, any questions please ask away. I have also written a blog post detailing the project if you are interested :-) Mark https://ghyran.blogspot.co.uk/2018/03/building-wylderlands-2-scratch-built.html
  18. I’m not sure where this question should be asked so I guess I’ll ask it here. Im thinking of picking up the Ophidian Archway and/or the Numinous Occulum. Do these kits work with the Ayzrite ruins at all? I’d like to make more of a structure for the older kits but I really don’t what to have to put much effort in to get the old kits to fit with the new. Has anyone tried this already? Any photos?
  19. Hi folks, Looking to sell my limited edition 4x4 Soulblight Necropolis gaming mat along with a half painted Sigmarite Mausoleum terrain set. The mat is in pristine condition, there is a bit of wear on the box but still perfectly useable. The terrain is either primed, basecoated or mostly painted. One of the morr statues is missing. I am looking for £75 not including postage. See pictures for reference. Feel free to DM me for more info.
