Jungle cliff (TW)
This weekend I made my first terrain piece (other than scatter foliage) for my Tomorrow's War jungle colony setting - a cliff. I'm pleased with how it's turned out, but I don't think it looks finished yet - I'll add some lichen & dark green Gale Force 9 flock for ground plants, & pick out some small loose stones in grey, which should break up the patches of earth & grass a bit.
The cliff / outcrop is built from 2 ragged chunks of polystyrene, glued to an unwanted stand from the back of a picture frame. I added a few real stones in places as boulders jutting out from the cliff, then textured it thickly with all-purpose filler. After that it was a case of several coats of drybrushing on the dark blue-grey undercoat, whilst I marked out the areas of grass & earth with paint before flocking using Gale Force 9 flock. The foliage is snipped from plastic aquarium plants.
