I wanted my Epic Space Marines based on a rust brown desert theme to look like they are fighting on a planet like Mars or Arrakis, and I think I did quite ok. Now of course, I need terrain for them to fight on as well. Here's what I have gotten together so far:
|The table itself. I reused an old foldable gaming table I have by painting on a couple of layers of paint mixed with sand. I tried to eyeball the tone of the paint to be as close to the color on my space marine bases as possible.|
|Lava rocks. I just bought some of these today, as they're sold as rocks for gas barbecues and not available during our BBQ-unfriendly winter. I think they look great, but the color wasn't just right.|
|A set of low hills|
|And some bigger rocky hills. The paint is still wet so the color is a bit off (like I could get it to reproduce naturally in this light anyway)|
|Terrain pieces from Xmarx models. The radar tower has a bit missing at the bottom but my friend who made the order neglected to send it with the rest.|
|These SAM turrets, gun emplacements and supply trucks should make nice objectives|
Getting the end result to look anything like my inspiration will be next to impossible though. But I have to try! What do you think I should add?
