Proxy terrain

Post by Cryocat on Fri Dec 02, 2016 8:26 pm

Hello everybody!

Can I first make a recommendation, that I don't think there needs to be two terrain sub-forums. Shocked

And secondly I would like to start the ball rolling by making a couple of suggestions for terrain pieces -

You can find awesome looking greek/roman columns at wedding cake shops, I even found one the other day that had little cherubs on them -

And if you find you need more omphalos -

Feel free to add your own ideas  Very Happy

Do u have any of those tokens? They look really symmetrical in the photos.
I was thinking about making omphalos' shards, since i dont think ill need more omphalos with the typhon pledge. Maybe it can work if i glue some of them together... What do u think?
My first idea was making them from some Milliput and paint them afterwards...

Hey, no I don't have any of those gems sorry! I'm sure you could find something similar in your local arts and craft store though.

I wouldn't paint them, I think they would look pretty cool how they are. Just throwing ideas around Smile

LMAO! Im certain if people would know, if they be unpainted, alot of omphalos would be "absorbed" by peoples themselves. Twisted Evil

Well .. for non-americans the shipping fees go up to like $40 ... Smile

Although I found they sell them here in the Netherlands as well .. thanks for the wedding cake idea!! Cool

Notice they sell them at 3 different heights: 7.5, 12.5 and 17.5cm.
The minis are about 35mm (Troops) to 60mm (Gods) to 110mm (Titans).

That's awesome idea for trees, I like twisted wire more (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FNQTxX_jT4 / https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CcC5opK-VIU), but this is faster and easier.

EDIT: Also, I'm not sure how easy is this to sculpt in some non-straight shapes, but i think the idea is cool: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=42UZ8WpJO-M

If you guys are interested in making your own props and what not, I would suggest looking into a product called polymorph. There are lots of variants of the product but you can shape anything you want and paint it if needed.

I believe we need to fabricate our own eye instead of the "eye token" for the Graeae.
Though to do one that won't roll all over the board I guess Wink
