Terrain building day?

Post  nathanr on Tue Nov 12, 2013 10:00 am

Hey guys, the terrain at the den is looking a little rough and I'd like to do something about it.  It serves its purpose for league games and whatnot but it would be downright embarrassing to try to host a big tournament with out-of-towners with the run-down terrain that we currently have.  I think we need to have a terrain-building day or weekend to fix up the stuff that we have and to build some new pieces as well.  Maybe make some matching terrain sets and what-not.

It is a big job for one guy but if we get a group working together it could be a lot of fun.

I'm always up to help out with that kind of stuff. I have a wire foam cutter for if we want to make some terrain out of insulation sheets (rocky terrain), and I have some water effects for doing swamp or river terrain (I have both the normal water effects, and the water effects you can sculpt a bit to make rough water). I think I even have some hard board cut into river shapes that I never got around to actually building.

I've wanted to get in on some terrain building for a while now, just never had the space or supplies to do it at home. I could bring my air brush and compressor with me to help prime/base things.

We should have a count of what actually is needed at the den. I know trees and buildings are in short supply, we have plenty of hills.

Maybe Darren would be willing to throw some cash into this as it is for the Den.

I was actually thinking of packing my own terrain to bring along to games as the den is slim pickings.

I would love to help out and learn a few techniques to improv my own home terrain

I haven't found trees to be in too bad supply, though a few extra more regularly shaped forest bases would be nice. Buildings are definitely in short supply. I don't think there's many water features is there (rivers or marshland). Very few obstacles (fences, walls, rocky barriers) too. I think a few large pieces that will actually block line of sight would be a nice addition too, though those can be a bit of a headache storage-wise.

We should actually have a collection of terrain that is designated as LOS blockers....it is sorely needed in the game right now.

Lets take note of the terrain on the 23rd and we'll make up a list of what we have and what we'd like to have.
