The packaging was then cut into blocks, shaped, scored, whittled etc, then slightly heated with a lighter, then each block was glued to another to form Mesa type rock formations, a skewer held them together as well, next the Ďrockí was textured using some valegio pumice

Excuse the bare knee in the bottom pick  ;D

Were you thinking "underground hideout with a vague Tatooine vibe" too?  Maybe dug into an asteroid with the big space as a docking bay?

I thought people might think I was going to do a building! Itís got to be the cheapest terrain Iíve ever done, after the paste dried I applied a coat of army painters sand, then hit it over then painted from above with wraithbone spray, next came a dark thin reddish brown, brush on, and wipe off with sponge, starting to look more rock like now hereís some more pics

You need to make friends with a building contractor and get them to toss you their cast-off insulation foam leftovers.  Works even better than styrofoam as the core for this kind of build and costs nothing since it was headed for a landfill anyway.  You even get to feel good about helping recycle.  :)

Looking good so far, very convincing rock textures and shapes.

Thanks guys, the cheapo polystyrene works well and since itís old tv packaging saves it going into the rubbish dump, I will get some pics done of the finished item plus some more of my rogue trader stuff Iíve done over the last few months
