Intro: Street View Terrain
I decided o have a go at a a street view terrain/scenery.
This is only an example of what can be done with a bit of imagination.
I found some bits around the house and thought I would make a start to see where things go.
The reason that the scene isn't too wide is that this was a small piece of plywood that was going to be thrown out. So I decided to recycle
I also tend to keep used guitar strings as I have always been convinced I'd use them for something....now I have!
The original idea was to glue a piece of card to the wood and using a knife, cut out cobbles. After the first few, I realized this was going to be far too time consuming. I just wanted to make this a quick and easy project.
So instead, I used a thinner card and cut it into strips then squares and glued them onto the wood. Most cobbled streets I've seen are not uniform, so random sizes of cobbles/card seem to be the best way to go.
Spread a small amount of glue on the base. work in small sections or the glue drys and you just have to add more !!
For the baricade, take the wood stirrers and cut them into sections approx 1" in length.
- I found that wire cutters is good enough to cut the wooden stirrers
Then glue the sticks in to make an X.
When the glue sets, then snip the bottom of the X to give it a flat bottom
I used a small nail and hammer to punch a hole to feed the wire through
Glue the items to the cobbled street however you want the street layed out.
Alternatively, if you are going use the street for multiple scenes or gaming, you can paint them up separately and place them where you want them. But for this purpose, I have glued them into position.
For the car, I clamped it in a vice/clamp to give it a crushed look then beat it with a hammer to make it look more beat up
I then sprayed the whole scene with a blade acrylic undercoat then painted the scene.
I know that the scale is not correct for the warhammer/40k games, but this is just an example of what could be done for your game tables.
Hope you all enjoy and feel free to ask any questions
djo4 made it!
