City and Wilderness
I've been slowly building some terrain for Malifaux, which has been a lot of fun - actually having to think about making stuff from scratch is very different to building a kit or following a plan. This is the page with all of the terrain on it
The buildings come from a few main sources.
I've also bought terrain mats from Deepcut, which are excellent and highly recommended.
These are the first buildings to be sort-of finished. The tower is a Warbases tower, with their roofing material. I glued the windows on, blu-tacked the doors and then glued sand to the walls. Once it dried the doors (and shutters) came off, and I sprayed the whole thing black, then gave it a dusting spray (as in I sprayed it from about 1-2 feet, and with fairly fast passes, as I didn't want to properly coat the black with grey). Both sprays were car undercoat sprays from Halfords. The gears on the tower are a vague attempt to make it look more Steampunk, and came from an eBay seller who sells 25g pots of old watch parts to use in scrapbooking and crafts.
The walkways are made from foam board, again covered in sand and sprayed in the same way. I made sure the walkways were wide enough for 5omm bases, and that the steps didn't have "fronts" so that a larger base woudl fit underneath each step to allow larger models to balance on them without having to have 50mm-deep steps (which would have looked a bit odd). The wooden slats on the top are just strips of thin cardboard cut semi-randomly and glued down. They were then painted and drybrushed with several different woody-browns, starting with my favourite, GW's Graveyard Earth, which I think now goes by another name...
This shows the doors and windows from Warbases - I've just given the doors a slight drybrush/wash with some other browns to give them a bit more life and key them into the wood elsewhere
I'm getting close to having more of this stuff ready, so more will be on this site soon!
I have a page with links to all of the Malifaux content on this site which you can find here
This site also has pages that scrape the following current Malifaux-related listings from eBay:
