A while back I knew I was going to want some terrain to go with the wonderful miniatures Modiphius were making, but I’d never made any before and didn’t want to spend ages on something for it to turn out badly. I decided something relatively small in scope would be best, but I still wanted something big enough to spice up an otherwise bare table. With a budget of a fiver, half a pack of milliput epoxy I had laying around, and some barrels from a previous project, this is what I came up with:
If anyone has any questions (or indeed, any suggestions for improvement) on how I made it feel free to ask, it’s essentially foamboard and plasticard The bricks were card by hand out of the foamboard, a technique I probably won’t employ again if I can avoid it. The carving itself wasn’t so bad, just took patience, but the paint kept soaking in whenever I tried to undercoat it and was rather frustrating. Still, I think the end result isn’t too bad for a first attempt!
The wooden barricade is made up of plasticard, cut into strips with notches taken out of it to try and make it look like old wood, and the corrugated iron is cardboard from inside an old shoebox (Supermutant for scale)
For the posters on the walls I just popped down to the library and printed off some textures that people had extracted from the game, then painted over some parts to bring out the details before fixing them on
