Cult Leader / Maniac

For a couple of weeks now I have put all of my hobby time into building me some Star Wars Legion terrain before the game comes out, but the game is not going to come out before 2018 Q1 so I dont have to hurry.
So I desided to paint up some more of my Mansion of Madness miniatures!



Here are som pics of my painted Cult Leader and Maniac!

Endor Scatter Terrain

After my work on the gigant endor trees I desided to make some scatter terrain for my endor gameboard!


First I cut out three bases from oil hardend board.


Found some right size rocks and spray them uniform grey!


Applied grey pumice to the bases.


Painted the bases with Game color Tierra Earth.


Washed the bases with Vallejo Lavando sepia.


After the spray I highlighted the rocks with a mix of Administratum grey and Ceramite White.


Highlighted the bases with the same Tierra Earth.


Glue the rocks on to the bases.


Some flock and some plastic plants added.


IA Storm troopers for scale!




Hope this little tutorial can be useful to some of you :)

Large Endor Tree´s Part 1.

Hello again!

As I said in my last post I am going to try to make some nice terrain for the upcoming Star Wars Legion Miniature game!

I was really inspired by the first Youtube video of the Star Wars Legion miniatures game that was shown from the Gencon 50 convent a few weeks back.

In this post I will try to show you how I made my Large Endor tree´s.


 
I started by first cuting out 5cm x 5cm thick strips of insulation foam.
 
 
Then I cut out 9.5cm across round bases from oil hardened board.
 
 
Then I drilled holes in them for large flower stick to fit.
 
 
Then I cut the foam in 3 pieces and pushed them on to the flower sticks.
 
 
I used wood glue to glue the foam.
 
 
 
 
I cut away as much as I could of the foam, then I used a sander!
 
 
The sanded foam ready for hobby paint.
 
 
The paint is for the next stepp so the foam does not melt from the super glue I used!
 
 
 
 
Then I glued nylon rope to the foam.
 
 
Darth Vader looks on as I work :)
 
 
Then I put on some air drying hobby clay onto the nylon rope.
 
 
After the clay has dried I apply some toilet paper with a 50:50 mix of wood glue and water.
I first brush the tree with the glue mix and then apply the paper, then I apply more onto the paper to
make the paper wrinkled and stick better to the tree.
 
 
The first tree´s after the first wash of woodland scenics: burnt umber 50:50 mix with water.
 
 
 
Hope you all like my lite tutorial so far!

Star Wars Legion

Last week I was going to check out Fantasy Flight Games web site and I was surprised to find out about a new miniatures game: Star Wars Legion that is going to come out during Q1 next year...
I was totaly excited by the news, and I quickly went to my local game store to preorder this new game!
The game will not come for a couple of months but I can use the spare time to build some great looking Endor terrain.
So in the next weeks to come I will try to build some Endor terrain for this upcoming miniatures game!

Hershel´s Farm Fence Tutorial

Hi Again.

Its time now to show you all how I made my fences to my little farm project!


 
First you need a sheet of balsa wood and some round flower sticks.
A sharp knife and a ruler and a pen.
 
 
 
I then cut the balsa wood in many 13x2 cm strips
Then I sand down the long 13 cm edges of the balsa wood.
 
 
 
Then I take some coffie stirrer and cut them down to 13 cm.
I then cut the flower stick in 2.5 cm short sticks.
 
 
 
I use super glue to first glue the flower sticks 2 cm from the edge of the balsa Wood.
Then I just glue the coffie stirrer to the flower sticks.
 
 
 
I use a army painter uniform grey spray to paint the fence and then a brown hobby paint to paint the edges of the base.
 
 
 
The last step is to use some wood glue to glue down some nice static grass flock.
 
 
 
I hope this little tutorial has been useful to watch!
 
 
Best Regards
