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..
