Me and my mate have recently made a board and we made a river out of blue tissue paper and to be honest it's rubbish. So has any one got any good tips for making rivers and bridges that can accomidate a land raider, also has anyone got any ideas for making dead bodies look good at the moment we have a few dismembered eldar guardians you know with goblin green blood every where and heads on spikes.
there's a book on scenery from games workshop. it has an excelent section on rivrs and bridges, its just what your looking for. and they look great!
here's spome ideas
you could make a bridge out of a piece of styrofoam,
that you cut in the desired shape with a sharp knife.
you could olso try making it from cardboard, ore wood.
as for rivers you could try painting a section of you board in the desired color of the water, than over that you glue household foil (you know the type that you kan look through) wrinkle it a bit to give it a bit of a wave effect.
Im not to sure about the bridge but for good water Make a shallow trench , the desired width of the river , and paint it blue then fill it with clear drying pva , et it sit for a couple of days and give it a light coat of varnish and then you have adecent river
Ok I got an idea for the river...
First make the river section. By that I mean the banks, bends and so on.
Then go for a walk... get into a place where they sell "Woodland Scenics".
Get your hands on some "Realistic water". If you are short on cash, don't do this, the bottle costed a woppin 25Â£.
After that go home and just poar the "water" on to the desired area.
I'm not sure of how to get colour into the stuff, but I can imagine that it is possible to just mix the stuff with the waterbased paint of your liking and then just add or deduce the paint percentage as the different layers are poured on.
I paint the base of my river blue then use eaz-y-pore water I think u can get it from ne model shop but it could ony be for here in aus
in my christmas decorations there are mini houses and there is a bridge to scale but its snowed on and looks christmasy

all i do is cut up hot glue gun refils, melt them in a frying pan, add colour by adding in inks, then jus pour it in.
And there is no complications with adding paint to the glue?
Yeah there are a few methods for making realistic water.
There's the old standard which is PVA and paint
Or there is always the woodland scenics water stuff
Also a good substitute is fishing bait liquid jelly, it can be dyed beforehand, and comes by the gallon, pretty cheap too, sure it'll form a jelly, but hey that would make for some freaky terrain, since you can mold it, perhaps small jelly like surfaces for fighting in deep warp space where solids could form.
Also something for dying PVA you can actually use some of the leftovers from that blue tissue paper, let it sit overnight in the PVA (if you can, use elmers glue, the real elmers glue this one works for sure) and you'll have blue glue, you just have to shake it up a bit before hand, probably use a 1/2 filled glue tube, maybe base it with 1/2 white PVA, then put the rest on top. I remember making my teachers so mad in school when all their glue would be green, pink, blue, orange, black, etc. Very funny, and I was never caught.
