The Ash Wastes of Volantis Prime
For years I have been basing my miniatures in a desert scheme but when it came to terrain, I made industrial/urban terrain, go figure. I decided to change that and finally get some sand on the table.
I used the last of my remaining polystyrene packing sheets and put together four sections. Each section was basecoated with a sand/filler/pva slurry and then painted over with yellow ochre. I have given it a burnt umber brown wash and next up will be the fun part, weathering and foliage! I'm going to use my new pigment powders to make a suitable arid dust (hopefully) and filling the craters with some sort of toxic liquid.
I wanted to be able to mix this terrain with my Hive Volantis terrain as well so I have also started on two joining sections. Each is a terrace accessible by a stairway, the bottom section will be based in the ash wastes sand scheme and the top/walls in the underhive rockcrete grey of Volantis. I also took the opportunity to add some sewer type openings (one of them appears to have had something 'escape' which will be clearer with paint)
Look for another post in the next couple of weeks when it's finished. (Next weekend will be busy but also includes a trip to Mecca, or its official name, Warhammer World!)
