Very cool setup!! The flora, water elements, and lighting all create a beautiful and fantastical environment. I bet it's really fun playing in a game where lighting effects are used.

Would you be so kind as to share what materials you used for your water terrain, in particular those used in the pic below? I'm considering building swamp terrain for an upcoming game and think something like this with greenier/murkier water would be perfect.



Sure thing.

The water itself is a product called Smooth Cast 325 although similar items like Woodland Scenics Realistic Water and others do well too.

I used large bark for the little island mounds mounted to hardboard that had already been painted to look like swamp water. It is quite murky and green as you will see in the unlit photos below. I used actual twigs here and there as well as sand and a few products by Woodland Scenics. I did the pour over wax paper to alow for trimming of the thin resin at the edges. It turned out great for very little effort compared to many of the other pieces I have done. Have fun and please post the finished product so we can all gawk and appreciate the craftsmanship!

By the way...please be super careful cutting the hardboard! It's always a little nerve wracking to handle jigsaws so safety first! lol
