Pictures of my
Pictures of my Modular Terrain
The 1’ squares are made from ¾” Styrofoam, painted on both sides to prevent warping, and coated in sand and static grass while the paint was still wet.
Farm land was made from Scenic Effects ground turf and the olive groves were made from pipe cleaners. There are a few modular light woods that were made.
Making War game Terrain:
I constructed my 15mm terrain from foam board, texture coated and mounted on a cardboard base. Advertisements were downloaded off of the net and reproduced on my printer. Although I do not speak or write Arabic, I tried to copy some words that I found onto the sides of the buildings to depict graffiti. You can check out the TerraGenesis site for more information on how to build war gaming terrain. My advice is to look at a lot of photos and take your time.
The striped HO scale car was purchased from a local Hobby store. The roofs are made of cardboard and are painted to look like corrugated steel. Lichen and green tree foam are a must.
You will need lost of small debris to place in the streets. Burnt out cars, barrels can be purchased in HO scale at a Hobby store. The walls were made out of cardboard and balsa wood.
