    Back in 2008 I did an instructable (my first and probably best) of Mini Island Gaming Terrain for the (now defunct) game of Pirates of the Spanish Main.
    This is a nice addition to the gaming community and I hope more people start creating their won terrains for every game to make them more dynamic and less predictable.
    Plus it's fun, creative and in some cases helps recycle materials.

    I couldn't agree more, DIY terrain is awesome and I feel that it allows a greater sense of creativity then just painting the prefabricated models often used in games!

    Hi, I'm new to all of this but really want to start making my own terrains. What type of paint did you use? Also, (dumb question =P ) how did you get the highlighting technique? It looks fantastic, really well blended, I just wondered if you have any tips on how to get it looking that good? Thanks! Jade
