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.


  1. Hi PC- I do like this, a great piece of terrain, and the drybrushed rock looks spot on! I'm looking forward to the next project.

  2. Cheers. I'm planning to do some rocky columns like those found in Zhangjiajie National Park, China (& on Pandora in Avatar!)
