Good day Everyone,
This is my first post on these forums. I want to share my new gaming table and the scenery I have as of now for it. Please comment as I am up for suggestions and ways to make it better.
I know I want to find a way to add debris and more little barricades and other.
First, welcome to LO! Hope you'll enjoy it here.
Second, Nice work. I particularly like the stone pillar. I think it would be cool to add some random control panel in a recess on the side of it (getting a bit of a star wars vibe here) But that might be too much work on something that is already finished.
The tin cans work well. What are the railings made off?
The buildings do need some bases I feel, they just doesn't look finished without, but that might just be me. The woods will definitely need some bases. It is impossible to keep the shape of a loose wood during a game, I've noticed.
Continuing, the fortress and the barricades could use some highlights (although that might just be the pictures not showing it) and the metallic building need some shading. A wash would help it a lot.
That said, it is an impressive set of scenery you've got there. Is the mat just a regular felt mat or something made for gaming?
Highlight/shade those buildings (or post some pictures that show it) and I'll give you some rep.
Thanks alot for the welcome!
I might try to add something on the side of the pillar and maybe do another piece of terrain like an underground entrance controlled by that panel or such.
I do have bases for the buildings coming around but they are far from finished. I will take some pictures shortly of my WIP.
The railings on the tin can building are made out of pencil holders I found and cut to pieces.
I will rework the higlighting a little and post new pictures.
What would you suggest for a wash on the metallic building?
The mat is actually a premade polyvinyl mat with flock preglued to it. I then glued this to a 1/2'' foamcore board.
Oh, even cooler! Would make for an interesting scenario, perhaps. Like: Objective B (entrance) can only be claimed if Objective A (panel) is controlled by the same player. Or: If the panel is activated, the player immediately gets reinforcements from the entrance (if one wants to be nasty, roll for who's reinforcements emerge > ).I might try to add something on the side of the pillar and maybe do another piece of terrain like an underground entrance controlled by that panel or such.Nice. Looking forward to it.I do have bases for the buildings coming around but they are far from finished. I will take some pictures shortly of my WIP.Sort of plastic mesh cups? I think I know the type.The railings on the tin can building are made out of pencil holders I found and cut to pieces.Badab Black and/or Devlan mud. If you don't have it or don't want to waste a lot on scenery, you can dilute chaos black (or similar) about ten times, possibly add some glaze medium or just some dishwashing liquid to help it flow. It's probably best to do such a large piece a few sections at a time, otherwise it will all pool at the bottom. If you think it looks too dark afterwards, you can just lightly drybrush the original colour back on top.I will rework the higlighting a little and post new pictures.
What would you suggest for a wash on the metallic building?I see. And when you want to transport it you just fold it up. Pretty neat.The mat is actually a premade polyvinyl mat with flock preglued to it. I then glued this to a 1/2'' foamcore board
Looks good! Those barricades look more defined. The building as well. Glad I could help.
Nice use of found objects!
Only tip I could throw out is try to cover/avoid any of the tell tale signs of "found props" for scenery. For me personally, it pulls me out of the game.
If you can look at the top of a tower/bunker and say "Oh..looks like a coffee can" Or "Those tubes have lines like a toilet paper roll.." it take away slightly. I still use those tools and resources but try to cover up the parts that really reveal what it is. Not so much a critique as another perspective on the concept.

Looks good but for the *cough* coffee cans *cough* you should try to either file the ridges around the middle down or try flattening them somehow. Another thing you could try is to completely cover the *cough* coffee cans *cough* with greenstuff then paint it all over again.
