Some snowy terrain to inspire you!2022-01-26
A while back the lovely folks behind the new Eldfall Chronicles game got in touch, asking if they could use our samurai terrain to show off their awesome models. Of course I was happy to oblige, and sent a bunch of terrain files their way..... and yesterday I finally got to see how it all turned out!
▲ In their own words.....
"The miniature terrain inspired by the Empire of Soga is finally finished! Aaaa so happy!
What do you guys think? Do you like the snowy feeling?
We received the 3D files of the terrain from @3dalienworlds and it is divine! We cannot recommend it enough. The details are exquisite and the historical accuracy supreme (relating to actual Japan)
We'll share some process photos with you soon
Process: first we 3D printed the terrain (which took… about 2 months). After sanding and cleaning it, we glued the pieces together, primed them, and applied some zenithal highlights with spray paints. We used blue for shadows and white for highlights just so we laid some groundwork and ambiance. Then we more or less started painting with acrylic paints. We painted everything a tone darker than usual, just so that the later-added snow would balance it out. We found that sponge-dabbing, dry brushing, and applying wash get the job done the best and the quickest for this size. (Oh, yeah, the terrain is 3x3 feet large, so it was quite a spoonful). In the meanwhile, we tackled the trees. We wanted them to have a vibrant red that mimicked the red autumnal maple trees in Japan. We used real Icelandic moss for the tops and glued them on with hot glue. We also applied some fake grass in patches on the ground, that would later peek from under the snow. Later, after everything was finished and painted, we dove into the snow. Literally, as it got everywhere xD We applied Soft Flake Snow with some added water and glue. We found that applying it chaotically with a spoon and having fun with it works the best for us Lastly, we sprayed the terrain with varnish and that was it!
