Doctor: I had to keep it PG-13 for the Terragenesis competition. :)

consectari: How they were made on the computer or on the model? :P

For billboards I just printed them in appropriate size, stuck them to some thin card and used sprue plastic or plastic rod for the supports. Either stuck them into your base or make some concrete base...things. I used insulation foam for those. Follow that up with an appropriate paint job of metals and rust and hey presto! That's it. :)

For posters it's really just print, cut, stick, maybe some weathering.

There really isn't anything to it and they liven up the board immensely. You should all give 'em a go. :)

Oh, and in case you missed them, here's all the graphics: http://www.easternfringe.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5042

Well whaddaya know. Been almost 3 years since I posted any real progress on this board.

Firstly, I'd like to apologise for the enormous wall of text and amount of photos for two little bits of terrain that could be much, much better. I'm just happy to have gotten something built again finally. For the impatient and uninterested, feel free to just skim the photos, no hard feelings. :D

Anyway...

I got dragged into a terrain making competition by a buddy over on Terragenesis. The theme was machines/engineering and the deadline was 28th February. Thing is, the competition has been running since 1st of January and I got dragged in on 27th February. So here's what I managed to come up with in a day's time, minus when I was at work, watching top gear, sleeping or fornicating. Actually, I finished the paintjob and took photos at work with 3 minutes to spare.

I give you 'Reinventing the Wheel' Research & Development facility.

Cinematic shots:

And some regular ones:

And a copy-paste quote from my competition entry, explaining the idea behind it all:

Quote:
It's a post-apoc kinda set of pieces that represents a Research & Development facility. Since much knowledge pertaining to manufacture of goods and means thereof had been lost in the apocalypse, this workshop is specialising in recreating various items and in some cases, reinventing them.

The rapid prototyper is one of the pieces. It's made from printer cartridge packaging, sanded and painted. Two as of yet non-working LEDs were added, as well as a plasticard-built computer console with a nice shiny screen (gloss spray).

The other piece is the compressed air storage and, er... production. The car is jacked up, on its tyre in a post-apoc fashion, and the drive shaft used as motivation for an air compressor, driven via belt. The car was an old beat up 1/43 scale model, painted a bit. The cargo bit on top is plasticard and cardboard, cut and painted. The tank is from a Kinder egg. Welding was simulated via a thin, long application of PVA glue. The concrete base is painted insulation foam and the compressor itself built of random plastic bits. The base for the entire thing is plasticard and painted to look like really grungy metal via a combination of applying via crumpled tissue, stabbing a make-up brush and inking.

Good to see you Easy-O! I've missed your last minute terrain making, I'm glad to see you haven't disappointed with your most recent effort.

I really do enjoy your apocalyptic terrain and its grim demeanor.

Nice to see you both and thanks for the encouragement. :D

I still lurk, but haven't really done much lately. :( I decided to enter every competition held this year at TerraGenesis so I made some more stuff for the one that deadlined a few days ago.

Painted in about 2.5 hours, built in essentially about half a day of actual time... over the course of 4 days. The theme was "Metal and/or Wood". It's finished in a broad sense and I'd really like to add details, posters, signage, graffiti, rats, the list goes on. Whether I'll be doing that or making another new piece... Probably another piece for now. :D

Have some pics:

Dicked around with the camera in a not very effective way, but there you have it. When we get around to playing an actual game and all the terrain is on one table, I'll make some proper shots. I... hope. :-o

Well I'll be damned. Looks like Terragenesis decided to not allow hotlinking anymore. Here, rehosted on Photobucket:

And a wee 'lil banner I made for our new campaign, if I manage to get it off the ground...

Just seen the posters and shanty town. Fell in love. Do you think some of your terrain pieces would like to marry me? :D
