last year we ran a very popular kickstarter for hills, and we had a few extra requests for more rocky, cracky and mountain like hills. The biggest mountain i made was at Warhammer world for Games Day Mega display, infact it was used in national newspapers as a backdrop when Games Workshop had signed the agreement to make Lord of the Rings models!
As many games are skirmish or models WHICH are based on single bases it allows the terrain to be more complex, the reason we are making these mountains, hills and rocky outcrops as a kickstarter, is that it allows me to get to grip with more complex projects, and at the same time by building multiple pieces of terrain keepo the prices down.
The models are all hand crafted and truely unique, they come finished and ready to use. Each hill or mountain is based on a HDF base, about 2mm thick, the shapes formed from polystrene, sculpted with rocky faces.
The polystrene is coated in multiple layers of bonding platser, this is the same stuff used as its light, flexable and a light brown colour.
once dry, the flat areas are coated in sand, once all this is dry painting begins, all the model is undercoated a mid brown colour, rocky stone areas painted grey. Several drybrushes occour and then a mixture of flocks, bushes extra stones are added.
The hills are put ion the kickstarter, these are different as they are going to be a lot more rocky!
We have have listed our thought for bundles, but we are happy to add to the kickstarter a diffrent combination of the mountains, hill and rocky outcrops!
Here are examples of the terrain, notice we have not photoshoped, or edited the pictures, this is how they come!
SNOW OR WINTER VERSION!!
if you would prefer snow on your hills, mountains etc, we can simply change to winter terrain.
Risks and challenges
The biggest challange we had last year was the weather, we had a very cold winter which slowed the drying process down, we have reacted to this and we know have a bigger workshop, but it does take a while to dry these are large terrain pieces so we can only work so many in a batch, also we want to take our time to produce quality work!!!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
