Well, I have just made a 5x4 board out of pink foam today, and have decided on my theme.
In each corner there will be a monlith/monument to a chaos god. From the Khorne monument will be a river of blood, and from Nurgle an ooze of green sludge river. however, the majority of the board will look like undead "blight" from warcraft III(not the weapon in WoW). The only problem is that I would love for the blight to have a blue/green glow from under the blackened cracked earth( which is pretty much how it looks anyway). Does anyone have any ideas on how to do this? I thought of maybe just making the dead earth, adn then painting in the cracks, but this seems horribly time consuming, and I don't think it will look very good. My other thought was to paint in the undercolor first, and then put the charred land over it with a few missing cracks. Any other ideas are greatly appreciated.

Well, from what I remember about Warcraft 3, the glow was only in certain areas, which works to your benefit. My idea is to carve several big cracks (that go all the way through your foam board) in areas that you would want to glow, remove pieces of your foam as nessiary to paint, and then glue them back together over a thin sheet of white plasticard. Then underlight with leds, christmaslights, however is easiest. If your foam is deep enough, you should never see the plasticard, it's merely to keep chunks of your terrain from falling off, and to cut the glare from the lights. If this explination sounds completely insane, I apologize. Just let me know, and I'll sketch a few diagrams for you.
That sounds like a brilliant idea, However the same effetct can be acheived also through painting the inside of the cracks with some reverse highlighting and simple light sourcing techniques.I would prefer this way.
Think this is good? Rep me and click the star
