I've decided to start with these 3 resin Orc and Goblin pieces from Scotia Grendel. The plan is to use them as the jumping off point to create a desolate desert table inspired by the World of Warcraft Badlands. Think giant orange desert!
After cleaning up the resin pieces with an hobby knife and scrubbing the release agents off I laid out the pieces into logical combinations to form small encampments. I then cut out bases in 1/4" plywood and rounded over the edge of the base for each encampment.
Using some 2" polystyrene foam I created an assortment of hills and impassable terrain. I also created this skeleton rib cage piece using odds and ends I had lying around.
I mounted the terrain to the bases using super glue and Apoxie Sculpt. I chose to not mount the hills and impassable terrain to keep their footprint as small as possible.
I added chunks of cork to the bases to spice things up a bit.
I applied sand and ballast various spots on each piece of terrain to break up the texture.
Finally, I gave the bases a thorough covering of sand.
In the next installment I will cover priming and painting this terrain set.
