Has anybody got some ideas for cool scenery?
I got a lot of cardboard and stuff to make it with but i am not sure where to start.
Some hills of varying width and height are always a good place to start with scenery. After you have got some experience making them, you can go on to more ambitious pieces like rivers, wooded areas and the like.
For inspiration, go for a walk in the countryside somewhere. Take in all the local sights and see if you get any ideas. If I am looking for any good ideas for scenery, I go for a walk in the Brecon Beacons (a mountain range near me) or along the local river, I almost always come away with a fresh new idea for scenery.
Alternatively, If you are looking to make scenery from a different type of battlefield (desert, urban, barren rock etc) then have a look in some books, or do a google search for pictures of said type of terrain.
Have a look in the scenery section of the LO articles page for some guides on how to make the stuff.
Hope this helps,
well ive been thinking of this one way to get a realistic crater effect, but im not sure if it'll work.
get a suitable piece of foam terrain that you want to have a crater, and dig a hole half an inch deep and half an inch in diameter. Then buy a couple m80's or m90's (explosives. illegal in some areas). get into a well open area and cover the gound with cardboard or newspaper, stick the terrain piece with the explosive inside , light it, and run.
not sure it'll work, but it's worth a try.
REAL craters :w00t:.
I don't really think it would work... but try it anyway, just for the fun of it!
Sorry i have not be hear for a while, net been stuffing up.
As much as i would love to let of a bomb to make a real crater, i live in wellington, The capital city of NZ, There 3 times more cops here than any where in the country, and they dont like people playing with bombs, its against the new anti terrorism laws...(life per offence) and the NZ SAS are not that under standing. Howerver if a can find a beach i going for it.
I am going to try and make my uni as a battle field, it should look very cool.
Check out the "Index Scenarum" thread stickied in this board, it has lots of links to scenery and boards and stuff. ^_^

I like the idea of some sort of bunker, a low concrete type thing, with grass on the top, sort of WWII ish. I'll probably try to make one at some point.
The inspiration is out there. Theres nearly infinite things that you could do to make cool terrain.
