Gorge terrain module
« on: April 29, 2018, 03:01:24 AM »

This is my latest terrain piece for my tabletop games, a small gorge. It's about 300 x 150 mm, and at its deepest the gorge is about 30 mm deep.

It's not wide enough for vehicles in any scale larger than 6mm or 10-12mm. Maybe a jeep in 15mm, certainly nothing larger. There's just enough of a bend in it that you can't see right through from end to end.

I suspect that the rock formations would make geologists clench their fists and grind their teeth, but fortunately, I'm not a geologist.

Looks fine to me. Actually those last pics made me think of a scene in LotR The Two Towers where the Uruk-Hai run with their Hobbit captives.  :)

I like that a lot! :-* I can imagine that piece being used tactically in a lot of games.

Yeah, I like that a lot.
I'm going to make me one of those.

I've saved a couple of the pictures into my 'Inspiration' folder...

Brilliant stuff.

Woodland Scenics rock moulds, SculptaMold for the earth forms, all on 3mm MDF with chamfered edges. Grassy stuff is all my home-made sawdust flock.

I didn't do any in-progress pics of this particular piece, but there are some from other terrain pieces on my blog.
