Photographic Terrain Tile - Desert

When taking photographs I use to create the scenery which took time to setup and time to break down.

Having less time means I don't have time to setup the scenery. I have decided to build up some mini-scenery boards for photographic sessions. I got a cheap piece of MDF for 25pence which I cut into two pieces to make two lots of scenery boards. One will be grass the other desert.

The first thing I did was add some small stones to the board, you should be able to see an Ork battlewagon for scale purposes.

The next stage was to add some expanded polystyrene (taken from an iPod box) to act as a backplate.

Then I glued in some cork bark.

The next stage is to put down some filler.

I decided to add some extra hillocks using two small bits of polystyrene.

Having used a mixture of polyfilla (wall filler), white glue, brown paint, model railway ballast, model railway coal and some water I added the mixture to the board.
