So ive seen terrain and the likes made out of foam core, but have seen spray paint melt away styrophome before. So what kinda filler do you put on the edge of your foamcore to prevent it?
Or do you just paint over it with regular paints then spray prime?

Simple. Wood Glue. Wood Glue is not only cheap, but also it acts as a great sealer and protector for foam when you are about to spray paint it. There is also a spray can varient that does the same thing as wood glue, however I forgot the exact name =\.

Echoing the guys above, I use PVA glue watered down so that it spreads really easily - experiment to see what is best for you. Add a little ink or paint to this mix so you to see where you have spread it - this helps to mimise the risk of missing spots as nexus-star pointed out. When adding ink, remember that it will thin the glue so reduce the water content a little in order to maintain the desired consistency.
I usually apply at least two coats to ensure I have good coverage, then I go over the glued area very gently with some fine-grade sandpaper after the glue has set. This rougens up the smooth surface of the glue and allows paint to stick to it far better. Be sure to only lightly press with the sandpaper though - otherwise you will strip off the glue.
This method works quite well for me, hopefully you will find it of some use.
has anyone had any luck using regular latex house paint? I did my table with house paint + sand, and i was going to use the same stuff for the hills and what not.
You could just take standard house paint (black) and paint it. This is what the local Bunker does for all there boards.
