Barrow, Burial Mound Finished

To finish the piece of terrain all that was required was to add flock, static grass to the piece, which I did in several layers allowing the PVA glue to dry in between applications.

I also added small bushes in the form of clump foliage and finished off with a sprinkle of dried herbs.

I applied several coats of watered down PVA to seal everything in, again allowing each pass to dry before the next.




Hope you like it and try one for yourself, it makes a great addition to the battlefield.

Barrow,Burial Mound WIP

The next piece of terrain I wanted to make, using inspiration from the old GW style is the Barrow or Burial Mound.

It is very easy and cheap to make, cardboard and some stones from your garden, some sand and flock and that's about it.

I had some XPS foam offcuts which I cut into shape and used those on the cardboard base for the mound. I then covered in filler or 'spakle' and added the stones.

I then covered in PVA glue and added the sand, after it was dry, I painted the sand in brown and the rocks in black.

Stay tuned for the finishing touches.

Stone Circle, Stonehenge, Summoning Circle Finished


I glued the sand down with PVA, waited for it to dry. After a black primer I painted the sand with dark brown and followed with some drybrushing to a lighter brown. I then painted the stones in a dark grey and drybrushed it up to a lighter grey. I then covered with static grass, flock and various bushes.

I also made a few smaller pieces to go alongside the main piece, one example below.

Stone Circle, Stonehenge, Summoning Circle WIP


I have been wanting to tackle some old classic Warhammer Terrain and decided to start with the Stonehenge or Summoning Circle (that is what I am calling it anyhow) from this book Wargames Terrain.
