Rebuilding my cacti patch DONE

I got tired of basing my terrain on CDs. I think they ended up looking too regular on the table.

So I bought myself a lot of lasercut mdf bases for terrain purpose. I have accumulated loads of junk and various stuff which I want to build into terrain eventually and now I can start working on it all.

First thing I wanted to do though, was rebasing my Death World Cacti and expanding the patch too.

This is were I am at right now, but hopefully it will turn out good in a few days.

Re: Rebuilding my cacti patch

Where'd you get the bases? The only ones I've found that look good are from a company in Australia and I don't want to pay that kind of shipping!

Re: Rebuilding my cacti patch

I bought them from these guys on Ebay: http://stores.ebay.co.uk/War-Games-Tournaments?_trksid=p2047675.l2563

I bought the 80 bases lot, made and offer of £29 and it was accepted instantly. Got a second chance offer of a bif of £27 later too.

Some of the shapes are not that good, but I use my saw and file to trim them as I like. Still cheap enough and easier than cutting them out myself.

Progress....

Image
Bases painted. Spikes added to cacti and some of the older ones rebuild.

Coming up next: texture and paint on the cacti and then putting them onto the bases.

Great project! Those cacti were some of the first terrain I ever built.

I think that nothing says 40K 2nd edition like some good old Death World Cacti :D

And they will be usefull for any sci-fi setting or fantasy.

Re: Rebuilding my cacti patch

More progress:

Image
Added texture with tile adhesive.

Image
Painting.

Image
Almost done.

I don't know if I should add some grass in patches or if they are good to go as they are. Let me know what you think?

Besides that I will need to smooth out the transistion between the cacti and the bases a bit and paint the silo thing.
