Hi I'm putting out a general message here to anyone who's good at making scenery. I've tried and tried and tried! But I just can't make my home-build scenery look any good. So I want to know if anyone would be willing to make some scenery for me and mail it down to me, I would, of course, gladly pay the amount needed for the scenery supplies and mailing costs, but I desperately need some not only for me but for our school gaming club as well.
Not to be picky but it would help if you were from within the UK as I'm unsure about currency changes and all that crap.
Can't mail any to you but you should look for tips in other forums. Or e-mail me, as i'm quite nifty at doing buildings and game boards and stuff.

Hi Wolf Hunter,
I'm affraid you will not get the results you want with your request.
The simple reason is that if someone decides to sell his scenery,
they will most probably offer it at some auction and try to catch a good price.
What you're asking for is work on commission.
Which is generaly more expensive than a website or auctions.
Since you've already tried to make scenery which didn't work out so well,
why not try to improve on that.
All techniques are explained on the websites mentioned in the posts above.
You should also be able to find a lot of nice examples there.
You can whip out great looking scenery with a minimum in supplies.
I'm currently only using BIF (Blue Insulation Foam) for a collection of rock spires.
(And glue and sand and paint, etc).
Once done, there will be enough pieces to cover an entire table. Tyrannid or similar style.
If you would mention more specific types of desired terrain and structures,
others might be able to answer with more specific tips and examples.
What exactly do you mean you can't make it look good?
It's only a natural thing that people aren't a prize winning standards from the first day.
I say "aye" to that...
The thing is you need experience, only you gain some of this it will come naturally.
Try making scenery the way you do it, just limit the size of what you make and then just evaluate your creation, taking away the bad parts and then trying again to make it even better.
For maybe 90% of all gamers this will work...

I WAS IN THE IMPERIAL (Norwegian) GUARD!
I've been playing 40K for two years now and i've never managed to improve my scenery making skills!!
I basically need, Bunkers (Human), trees, rocky outcrops etc, I can send the money to anyone who can make it before hand if need be.
It's really easy to make a rocky outcrop and a bunker.
Making trees takes more time and effort, but isn't that hard either.
For the rocks, take a piece of styrofoam. Either the coarse white stuff,
but preferably more dense material, like Blue or Pink Insulation Foam. (BIF or PIF).
Take a hobby knife and roughly cut the shapes you're going for.
Then take an old kitchen knife, heat it up and push it into the foam,
creating rock like structure.
Base paint with very dark grey and dry brush with lighter shades of grey.
Highlight with very light grey, almost white.
(Or go for a different colour rocks).
Bunkers can have all kinds of shapes. They can be open or closed, have 3 walls or 4, etc.
Try to cut those shapes from a dense type of insulation foam.
(Or simply use a box).
Then paint the surfaces with thinned down wall filler to give them some texture.
Sand down the wall filler if there's too much texture.
Paint in grey tones for a concrete bunker.
You can go wild and make a version of a bunker sitting in a rocky outcrop.
Trees take a bit more effort. There's several good guides on the web.
I made mine by twisting strands of wire together and covering it up with wall filler.
If you would post pictures of your progress here, people will be able to give some
hints and tips as you go along.
You can for example start by telling us how you would want your bunker and rocky outcrop to look like.
