DavyJones build some stuff - a modular river (Update: 28.11)
« on: November 20, 2016, 09:59:14 AM »
I really like all the beautiful pictures here, so I decided to share some of my own stuff. I am relatively new to the hobby, so don't expect too much.  ;)

Let's start with some jungle trees:

I want to thank Dr. Mathias for his great posts in this forum. He inspires me to build the trees. You can find his post here: http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=41545.0

I like those, impressively big tree trunks.

From the description you have done some dry brushing - but perhaps a bit more to bring out the texture.

If you want to get fancy, how about some vines/creepers down the trunk?

Thanks for your comment fred. I guess you are right, some more dry brushing will help.

Adding vines/creepers is also a good idea. Quiet honestly I just forget to add these.  lol

A promising start  8)

Might I suggest to get some more vertical texture on the trunks?

cheers

Some new stuff: a modular river. I need that one for my pulp alley campaign.

Time for an update!

Some jungle terrain. We use it for colonial wargaming and pulp stuff.
