My main inspiration for this system was, similar to Infinity, the lots and lots of ideas I had for cool terrain. Usually, I get inspired because of the terrain, and that's the start of another system.
I want to build a flooded game board, so basically, it will be a wooden board with a little bit of epoxy on it to simulate all the water. The other terrain pieces will be put on top of it.
In some pictures, I used Infinity models as reference, because this terrain could also be used for jungle planets with Infinity.
I started with ha half sunken ruin and a mangrove-like tree made out of pine roots. Then I added sand a first layer of paint and then the first plants, including some huge fungi made of garlic stems.
The second piece of terrain is also a sunken building, but this time, it is also tilted. I'm using magentized bases anyway, so I cut a metal fruit can and glued it onto the piece. With this, the miniatures will be able to stand, even when the ground is tilted.
Just a bit of vegetation with a path.
A small site with three crushed escape pods. There will be a waterfall and a pond, where the third pod is crushed.
An old (and very large...) shipping container, that has been uplifted by some trees.
A lot of the plastic plants have been bought at a dollar store, because aquarium plants are way too expensive. All of this bunch was about 10,-€, that's way better.
I have a ton of new terrain and therefore, also new pictures!
The plants, earth, and building got painted, I'm working on the tree and the wooden structures right now.
Same here, both are waiting for the turf and then the water.
I also started some more terrain for The Drowned Earth, that will fit into the jungle/drowned theme. First, a half sunken building with the possibilities to swim under it, climb onto the catwalk and even onto the second floor.
Painted and with plants.
Finished with grass and turf.
Since the deployment zone is an 4x4 area, I made one.
The jungle also got some paint.
Some footbridges (the gaming table will be only water, so all the terrain will stick out from it), also with a deployment zone.
This is all modular, so it can be changed every time. And since the roof is attached with magnets, the roof can be a piece of terrain on its own.
Now with some paint to let the wood looks rotten and wet.
One of the many garlic-mushrooms.
By now, they all have herbs on it and are finished, but I haven't taken pictures yet.
I also wanted some sort of destroyed highway-bridges.
Since the material is a bit flimsy when it's not supported somehow, I came up with several ideas like the tree.
They can also be put together in different ways, they also fit to the wooden footbridges.
And to the other building's second floor as well.
This is a 120x60cm table.
Finished with plants and herbs.
The tree is not done yet.
I still need to do the rust on the reinforcements.
Thank you, guys! I'm waiting eagerly for the models, but until they arrive, the terrain itch is still strong.
I had the idea for a piece of jungle terrain with an old greenhouse. As the earthly surface is above the water, I shaped the base in a way, that the CD-terrain can be put into it.
It got quite dull because of the glue fumes, but old glass in greenhouses often look that way, so I found it fitting.
I finished the first two ruined buildings with Water Effect. It is the first time I used this, so far I did this with carpenter glue and satin varnish, but this time, I used Still Water.
And I also put everything onto my Confrontation board, simply because I haven't done the Drowned Earth gameboard yet. This will be 3x4 feet and a complete water board. But so far, I only had the 120x60cm board.
Next in the assembly and painting line is some scatter terrain.
Some more finished stuff, this time with a wip Ravanna for scale comparison:
Swing points. In the game, two points can be determined to be Swing point A and B. This is supposed to be some sort of liana or rope and a model can swing from one point to the other. Since I don't like mere markers on the board, I build some, both natural ones (the trees aren't finished yet) and technic ones.
Objective markers. The bigger one on the left in the back is scatter terrain.
I'm working on a scenario, where the crews have to steal dinosaur eggs from guarded nests, so I build these.
