Continuing my quest to make every type of terrain for Warmachine and Hordes I have finished up my Burning Earth piece.
Like my other terrain I wanted the base to be representative of the terrain without impacting game play. This one wasn't very easy to do if I'm honest.I used some red flock and placed it next to the grass flock then dry brushed the whole thing with some black to show the burnt ashes.
The removable elements for this terrain I am much happier with. These blasted tree stumps from World War Gaming are just what I needed to show that the area is on fire, but also be able to move them to one side should they get in the way during a game.
I painted them to look like the fire was burning deep within the wood, as if they caught fire from being shelled with explosive ammunition or perhaps lightning? (From my stormsmiths maybe)
Below is the picture I used for reference while painting them. I wanted to get the charred ash look on the external parts while looking as if the fire still burns within.
I'm really happy with how the trees turned out but less happy with the base they are on. Sometimes though I think its alright for a project to not be 100% as I would like it and just finish it and move on. I could have spent a lot more time to try and get it exactly how I wanted, but with a baby and lifes other many things I have found its better to move on and work on other things.
What do you think of my Burning Earth terrain? What terrain from Warmachine and Hordes would you like to see me make next? Let me know in a comment below!
