Scarif

Continuing the Star Wars theme and the fact that I really, really love Rogue One I decided to make some Scarif terrain.

Basically using the Maldives for inspiration (as that's where it was filmed) and utilising some old palm trees from work I got going.

The bases are 2mm hardboard with chamferd edges and then coated in fine sand (pretty much the same method as my other Star Wars terrain), painted with textured wall paint and then washed with watered down brown ink.

The growies are a selection of whatever I had at the time but I'll have to buy some more if I'm to make other bits (which I no doubt will do). There's enough room between the separate foliage clusters to get figures through.

The larger rocks were carved from blue foam, sanded down and then given a liberal coating of the textured wall paint. Small pebbles were used around the edges. They were then sprayed with a mix of greys from light to dark from the top down and washed with a black/brown ink, again from the top down. The base process was then applied and a couple of choice bits of vegetation were added.










I will at some point soon be making a simple landing pad and bunker entrance similar to the one in the film. Watch this space..

  1. Hell great for star wars, and great for just about any other conflict on an pacific island that you can think of. WW2, Wakko and samurai fighting it out. Chinese pirates, Hawaiian/Polynesian wars, Modern USMC and PLN fighting it out on fake islands in a hopefully fictional near future fight.

  3. Excellent!I loved Rogue One too, except (as usual) I was really disappointed by how weakly the stormtroopers were portrayed and the combat scenes in general were a let-down.

  4. Thanks :-)

    I must admit I didn't really find anything wrong with the fight scenes but I'm probably still wearing my Star Wars tinted sunglasses lol

    cheers

  5. Lovely! I also loved the movie (so much that I read a couple of the accompanying books, and have more on order).

    Where is the squad of storm troopers with cut off legs wading in the water though? ;)
