Ok...So about a month ago I posted something along the lines of "What makes a good weekly gaming table?"...I did decide to make a toxic river flowing through my table and have been working very hard to finish up this gaming table...I am down to painting the river...I have made it out of sealer and just sort of made it look rippled with my fingers...After that I have base coated it black...As of now I am trying to decide if I should paint it the classic Green (Dark green built up to a yellowish light green) or should I paint it the more rust colored orange? (Dark brown built up to yellowish orange)
i've always seen toxic as green or purple, you could try swirls of greens and yellow-browns
I agree with jonojoe, a sort of toxic green (maybe built up to scorpion green), and some dark yellowish brown swirls.
I would go for varnished (Yaught varnish) / water effect for watery feel, however i based a load of scouts in toxic goo recently, and i used a resin car filler 2 part mix to do so (mix paste and fluid and it forms a jelly like paste, then hardens into resin, and the paste is reddy tinted and forms a good sludge. Please be carefull if you try this - this stuff gets hot when it reacts, and if you get the mix wrong and apply it too soon it will melt your mini's legs, as it does get hot when reacting.)
rep. nice river, i like the board too
That is really nice mate. Have you thought about using Water efefct (resin) to give the Toxic sludge more of a 'wet' feel to it?
So are you still to make or the buildings for it?
very nice, how about the pipes on the side spilling some of it? and a good idea would be to highlight the tip of the water with very light green or white and reflect the green acid/poisonous water onto the banks beside it. if you want it to look radioactive .
Also a water tower without legs would help to brighten up the rrealism of lots of toxic water nearby.
I have thought about adding some sort of gloss varnish to the river of slime. I have yet to play around with the water effects, but soon perhaps. I have about four large city of death buildings, but I like building I scratch build a bit more. As more terrain starts to come out I will be sure to start a new thread show a ruined and desolate city.
