I've noticed that not many companies (GW
in particular) cope with terrain sized for 10mm 'Grand' scale games such as Warmaster, I have decided to help you make your own 10mm scenery by showing you a quick, easy and, most importantly, CHEAP way of making your own.
(Sorry about the poor pics, I had to use my evil Webcam)
In this example we will make a generic Fantasy Farmhouse Building
Dig out that old box of Monopoly
in your house that hasn't been touched in years and find a Hotel piece (the Houses are far too small)
Undercoat the Hotel with Black, I used GW
Paint the roof Brown, I used GW
Using a dull Yellow (GW
Iyanden Darksun works best IMO
), paint thin lines all over the roof, this represents Thatching!
Paint the Walls and Chimney of the Building Grey, I used GW
Fortress Grey, then mix your Grey with a bit of White and Stipple the Walls to create a basic stonework effect (The pic doesn't show this too well)
Using your Black, paint on little lines for the door and windows (Or use brown to represent closed wooden doors/shutters)
Step 7 (optional)
Use a tiny dab of Superglue to fix in a bit of cotton wool as a cute puff of smoke, some versions of Monopoly don't have the chimney, if yours doesn't, don't bother
There are other ways to use pieces from old board games to supplement your terrain collection, for instance I made this Tower out of a Rook (Castle) from an aged Chess set! I'm sure you could come up with far more inventive ideas!
