This thread has me wanting to build some terrain up soooo badly

Facts are chains that bind perception and fetter truth. For a man can remake the world if he has a dream and no facts to cloud his mind.

Excellent! My evil plan is working...

Love the animal prints in the mud, that's a great touch. Continually impressed by your creativity!

Thanks, guys.

Currently working up some more storage tray buildings for a tutorial and (hopefully) another build video.

I made a bunch of assorted signs up in Gimp, which I just print off in whatever size is appropriate as I need them.

Sample below... Text is in (Google translated, so probably very bad) Esperanto, just because it seemed appropriate and because it let me have some fun with the text without being really obvious about it...

That's really cool. I'm going to have to steal that idea. Maybe that image.

The Esperanto is a nice touch. Makes me think of Red Dwarf.

Yeah,
Smashing stuff,

The guide is really good too.
The only thing I would add is maybe sanding the plastic surface a little to help spray paint adhesion.

That military green is really well done.
Amazing.

Wow, I agree the painted buildings look great! Especially that first one, zoom out and put it on a flocked board and I'd think it's the real thing

Anyone have a link to comparable product here in the USA, via Home Depot or Lowe's?

Not sure about specific stores, but here's an Amazon seller with what looks like a pretty much identical piece of kit to what I used.

Mostly, on my phone.

As ever, my go to thread for random terrain crap. Awesome .

Yellowbeard: "Shop 'smart', shop Graven-mart!"
Casey's Law: "Graven: Speaking the truth and providing the rofls since '09."
Solar_Lion: "Deep in the bowels of a forge world lies a machine so terrible and purposeful that its very existence is only rumor and myth. It never sleeps and always hungers. Never satiated. Always creating, always churning out more and more. Never satisfied. It’s purpose long forgotten. It only lives to build more and more of the truly insane. The Deus ex Gravenator. Your only hope is to die in your sleep so save the last bullet for you!"
cormadepanda: "You suffer from creator syndrome."
Theophony"... and there's strippers in terminator armor and lovecraftian shenanigans afoot." Solar_Lion: "Man this sums up your blog nicely."

This week's article is up: SciFi Western themed building, from the terrain sprue and a slightly hacked-up Plast Craft Games Old West building:

Just checked out the WIP shots in the article. That turned out great!

It would look right at home in a certain space western sci-fi universe named after a flying insect with a bio-luminescent abdomen.

Reminds me of Brave Starr, The town all closed up when the bad guys came into town.
Doors/Shutters closed and awnings and porches retracted into the buildings.
