Terrain Day July 16, 2016

Hello All,

Yesterday we had our 8th terrain day. The turnout was reasonable, but the progress exceeded expectations! We did another cookout style lunch so hats off to the chief.

Take a look at how things are going.

Water features- This year marks an unprecedented number of requests for water features. 
Hobbit, Malifaux, and Warmachine have all requested water terrain. Here are some of the pieces that have been worked on.

Frozen water.

Darker colors were added to show depth

Lines of white were added to help with the ice effect

White pigment powder was mixed with water and applied to the
still drying realistic water to make the water look frozen.

Ponds and marshes

Darker colors were added to show depth

Some turned out more green other more brown.
Tectonic Craft Studios terrain

TCS made us some really nice simple kits for our Warmachine team. Walls, Tree bases, rough terrain, and hills.


Walls prepped for the terrain day

The House project

This one has been a big use of our resources this year- 78 houses in two different sizes and styles.
We did not realize just how labor intensive this project would become. It is almost over 23 of the houses are done and the rest are at least assembled. We will finish them on the next build!

The last of the houses getting assembled.

23 finished houses ready for the table!

I may have to go back to that last one...

Some of the houses primed for the final round of painting.
Trenchworx Tanks!

For the second year in a row Trenchworx has supplied us with amazing tanks for our Grex Airbrushing competition. This year's tank- The Panzer IV. We managed to get all 30 tanks built in a day!

Skyfire mode?

For Lunch we had another cookout and our Grill master knocked it out of the park again.

The next (and final) build for 2016 is next week (July 23rd.) I need all who can attend to be there. there is still much to be done. Let me know if you are interested.

Till then,




  1. The panther is a different tank. Great looking resin. By coincidence I just panted a platoon of plastic ones at this same scale!
