Broken Ground Terrain Piece (Part 1 of 3)


This is the first of a three part post building a tabletop terrain piece from start to finish. This step by step tutorial will show you how to build great "Broken Ground" terrain pieces for your board.  The Broken Ground piece is similar to the deserts of the American southwest with its canyons and mesas.  If you can picture those giant rock formations that stand striaght and tall as the base slope out from a million years of erosion.  The color is a desert brown and can be used in all types of game play from 15mm - 28mm.  We recently used several of these same type of hills for the warhammer 40K game Aeronatuica Imperialis at Games Day Baltimore, 2008. 

This post is the introduction, the next post will include cutting, gluing and texturing followed by the third post of painting, flocking and sealing your finished piece.  Subscribe to our blog today and don't miss this great learning series.

until next time

    After you cut the foam, what type of paint do you coat it with? Thanks

    Hi, use acrylic paints that you can get at any hobby shop, walmart or target. On some pieces, I use drywall mud, let it dry and wet brush all your darks colors. Let dry and highligh with lighter blends.
