Scenery basing. How and What do you use? 2 Weeks, 2 Days ago
Hello everyone. Just wondering what each of you build your scenery on. I've been building a lot of little experiments and so far I've found lots of material works well while others don't.
I have tried particle board. It bends under stress of glue.
I've also used hard plastic siMilar to that of movement trays
It will also bend. Thicker amounts make the scenery. ... flat but the material gets too tall to blend in!

Also, ive been putting down sand, which when glued causes the board to bend out of shape.

What do you all use when you're designing bases?
If we're not fighting then we are probably drinking.

I use wall filler for mine, it works like a charm, I learnt of this from the Terrain Tutor channel on his video "Texturing gaming boards with filler (spackle)" He has also done videos of using it for terrain and other board pieces.

I've used spackle on table war display boards, and I imagine it's a similar process. I also use Apoxie Sculpt for creating textures like tiles or stone.

Here's an example using the Apoxie sculpt (same stuff I used for the bases)

Scenery, so far: MDF, Blue Styrofoam(tm), Pink Foamular(tm), styrene plastic.

Bases: liquid superglue with model rail road ballast or colored sand or both together.

You have to use weights.

before of all you have to work on a flat and strong surface.

Take the base made of the material you wont, put the glue on it and the sand ( or the type of terrain you have chosen).

then you take some weights, and some piece of olied card ( I don't kow the correct term...the paper used to cook in the oven)

you have to put the weight on the base, protevting it with the paper in order to avoid the glue attach the weight.

doing this, the glue will dry letting the base stay flat.

one time the glue is dried the base will remain flat forever

All great ideas... IVe used pretty muCh all mentioned so far but I never even considered throwing weights on the scenery. I'll have to
try it .

Nigel squire , I really like those stone bases you've got going. I've never tried that method but the results look stellar. May need something for Mordheim again!

Anyone have any experience using textured masonry paint or texture spray paint on bases?

Rustoleum(tm) brand stone texture paints can be sprayed on Foamular(tm) or Styrofoam(tm) with no issues of melting the foam. STICK TO THOSE BRANDS. No guarantees with other products (n.b. Styrofoam is a trademark of DOW Chemical. For purposes of this post there is no such thing as generic "styrofoam".)

Yeah, from what I've gathered from going to Home Depot / other hardware stores thats the best for paint. There is also a sort of textured masonry paint that can be sprayed or painted on. though I am thinking sand is still the best route espeically if you're covering it with sand.

Thanks !
