PostSubject: Blastscapes and Mine field (look out Matt)   Tue Aug 04, 2009 8:48 am

Working on my planetstrike terrain.

The rock is just drybrushed up through Greys (craft paints) and the browns are done with weathering powders.
Meteorites, Lava, and mines are done with more traditional painting methods.

I think you will see, despite being much maligned (GW showed resin masters then sold considerably less detailed vacformed terrain), the blastscapes do quite well with some easy techniques. For $20 Vac formed terrain they are really a steal. I just wish they were about 50% smaller.

Just a clarification, you did buy these pieces unpainted, correct? Where from?

Nicely done either way.

yes.... I painted them.

I bought them from Up Up and Away on Harrison Avenue. They were a GW splash release... (limited run).

The mines were a limited run Resin release... booby traps, mines and markers which I attached to hardboard w/ sand, cut up sprues and a piece of flooring from a city fight sprue.

Looking awesome. I think using a full set of these would really add to a game of Planet Strike.

John, did you come up with the process for the lava yourself? Or, is there a tutorial out there for doing it like that? I tried painting mine up last night before I went to bed (well.... started it at least), and it looks nothing like what you did (and I tried to get it to look similar)! I'd really love to be able to do something similar to that, but have no idea really where to start!

Thanks Smile I'll have to try that out... The lava one is the last one that I need to paint up from my group of them, and the rest of them turned out ok, so I'd really like to have this one look good too.

Thanks again!
