I have my mojo back !
First off, I've been busy all weekend making more of the large 15mm samurai terrain commission, a selection of which can be seen on the right here.
Before it goes to the client I think I'll do a proper set up on my boards and get some really good photos done as it all looks quite good at the moment as it is (even though I do say so myself ;-)
Having made a steep Japanese style mountain before in 28mm it wasn't to hard to make a 15mm one, just cutting down the growie detail a little bit and obviously the scale of the trees.
The flat area on top is for a small temple which is almost ready for casting. It's basically the same as the odou from the 28mm catalogue .
The trees are removable but some of the small bushes have been permanently glued in to break up the large surface area of the mountain side. There is another one to do which will sit in the corner of the table, more on that in a later post.
The sections need another couple of coats of varnish on them and some slight variations in tone to the water and then they'll be done.
There are also a bridge and water mill sections to be made and these will get posted when they are complete. I'm half tempted to paint the bridge red but that's not really accurate for the countryside ;-)
All the terrain has the same groundwork on them and I'm quite pleased with the result, it's not to flat in colour but not overly colourful (if that makes sense).
I think I'll make some of these for myself but perhaps slope the edges a bit more to make their impact on the table a little less imposing.
Well that's enough chatter from me, I'll put up some more pictures below for your pleasure :-)
