Photographic Terrain Tile - Grass

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. I also tried out some sand to see how that looked.

Some cork bark was then stuck to the board as a backdrop.

...and as with all great movie props, held up by 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.

Once this was dry, I spray painted the board.

I first used black spray, then a dark earth and finally a grey spray.

I now have to dry brush the terrain.
