Initial terrain work

Well this is a first for the blog.........terrain!

I normally don't make terrain as I don't play much games but for some reason over the last couple of weeks most of my hobby thoughts have been focused on terrain. I have been following Dampf's blog about using foam in terrain making over on his blog. 

What really caught my eye was this blog post and the way he used expanded foam and kitchen towel to make the rocks. 

So I just had to give it a go. I want to paint my ork bases in a red desert scheme and I had a feeling this method might turn out good rocks, which would complement this basing scheme. So this is the first 'test' rock I have produced. 

The Catachan is there obviously just for the scale. I have to admit I am very pleased with how this initial test worked out, considering all this is kitchen towel painted in PVA glue and then given a coating sand mixed with PVA for texture. I spray painted this with the GW orange foundation paint and give the recesses a wash with GW Red Ink and drybrushed the edges bleached bone. I didn't take any WiP pictures as it was meant to be a work through to iron out any kinks, but I was so pleased with the outcome I decided to post it up. 

I will definitely be making a lot more of these, both larger and smaller rocks to place around an Orky themed board and when I do I will do an indepth step by step guide.


  1. That is pretty awesome dude. A simple method for something that looks good. I would like to see a whole bunch of terrain like this, as it makes a change from the usual dark and grey style we see a lot.

  2. Came across your blog via Faeit post, must say i also love making terrain and its nice to see something not grey as previous post mentioned.

    If you want I can add you to my blog exchange and vice verse, just let me know??

    Looking forward to some more of your terrain.
