Hello All,

After reading countless posts and tutorials on scratch built terrain, I decided to have a go at it. Other than the Warhammer Fantasy movement tray bit that I chopped up to make some tiled flooring, the entire thing cost me about $3 worth of material. If you have the patience and are willing to practice, this is a pretty viable way to get some pretty decent terrain. Obviously, I haven't painted this yet, but my intent is to paint some chaos looking graffiti on the standing stones.

Let me know what you think. I'd be happy to explain how I accomplished anything if you're looking to replicate.

Sadly, I'm now waiting for the white glue I used to glue the sand down to dry. My plan is to basecoat it with an airbrush so I don't have to cover the pink foam in glue. Anyone have any experience with this method? I tested on a piece of scrap and it seemed to work out ok.

It's shaped up quite nicely, to my eye. Only the most ham-fisted paintjob could give you a less than attractive (and imposing!) piece of terrain, now.

Airbrushing it shouldn't be a problem - a spray is a spray, after all. Because of that, however, you may want to slather some heavily watered down paint over the sandy potions (I like to mix in a touch of PVA to help lock errant grains down), just to ensure coverage of all those nooks and crannies that can be hard to reach with brush or spray.
