Fiery Chasms of Fire

I worked on the Mordor Terrain board some more tonight.  Lots of foam cutting, but I think the result was worth it.

The Lava Lake

So work is progressing on the Mordor terrain board. Tonight I worked on cutting away the lava chasm areas on one quarter of the board that I am calling the Lava Lake. This is due to the large lake-like area of lava (clever, eh?) on this portion of the board.  There are three islands in the lake in case any daring generals want to have their minions attempt to hop across the fiery lava. Personally, I don't know if I would tempt fate like that, 1s are too easy to roll.

I added surface cracks spreading out from the lava areas. Think they look pretty good and I am toying with the idea of adding more, but I don't want to go overboard.

Beyond the Black Gate pt 2

I have been working on the layout of the Mordor terrain board. It will be rocky terrain with a volcano and deep lava filled chasms.  The board is 4ft by 4ft and made up of 4 2ft by 2ft squares. The base is quarter inch MDF and it will be topped with 2 inch thick styrofoam insulation board. This will allow the lava chasms to be cut down into the surface of the board. The picture below shows the basic layout of the lava chasms drawn onto the foam insulation.

Beyond the Black Gate

Then with searing suddenness there came a great red flash. Far beyond the eastern mountain it leapt into the sky and splashed the lowering clouds with crimson. In that valley of shadow and cold deathly lit it seemed unbearably violent and fierce. Peaks of stone and ridges like notched knives sprang out in staring black against the uprushing flame in Gorgoroth. Then came a great crack of thunder. - J.R.R. Tolkien

Okay So I am going to create a Mordor terrain board for Lord of the Rings. This is for the Mayhem in the Mountains tournament sponsored by Adeptus Mile High and Collectormania.  The tournament is the weekend of September 18th, so that gives me just about two months to get the 4'x4' table done.

I need to get a few supplies from the store to start.  More as things progress.

Terran Escort

Here is a shot of an Escort ship. These little guys are fielded as improved point defense platforms for Terran Capital Ships. I have painted six so far and have six more to go to finish up all the escorts in my fleet.
