'Barbarism is the natural state of mankind,' the borderer said, still staring somberly at the Cimmerian. 'Civilization is unnatural. It is a whim of circumstance. And barbarism must always ultimately triumph.'

Rocky Outcropping

In an effort to increase my scatter terrain collection to help cut down LoS for games I set out to build some new pieces.  This is the first of the pieces I completed for use in a Tomorrow's War game.


Materials:

Old CD
Rocks
Styrofoam
Flocking
Caulk
White glue
Hot glue
Paint

Basic layout.  White foam sealed and primed glued to the base with hot glue with a few rocks to make it more interesting.

Base built up a little with caulk to make it less smooth.  Then flocking applied; sand in some places and a tea mix in others.
After another black primer to cover everything, the base green color is added to the grassy areas.
Grey base color added to rocks, and then areas are highlighted via dry brush with a lighter color.
Finally some browns are applied to show some extra dirt around the base and some moss glued in place for bushes.
