This blog will will contain my rather pedantic ramblings on my experiences within the miniature war gaming hobby. There will be informative how-to’s, thrilling battle reports and thought provoking editorials. I fully expect that history will one day view the contents of this blog on par with Homer’s Illiad or Newton’s Principalia. Or it's a complete waste of time.
Decided to make some Frostgrave terrain today out of shop scraps. I had some extruded polystyrene foam lying around and just went to work without much of a plan.
The base is 12 x 12 inches and the EPS is 1 inch thick - a little too thick for this application but it's what I have on hand. The first two shots are some test fits. Making the brick pattern on both sides of the wall was a pain. I used the handle of a paint brush to make the mortar lines between the bricks.
Add some stairs out of 1/4 inch styrene that came with some packages.
Starting the glue up. All of the straight EPS cuts were made on my handy Proxxon hot wire cutter.
Another shot of the project being glued up.
I didn't like the uniform heights of the walls so I made some 1x2 inch "blocks" and added in a little variability.
