    You could try a couple of things . . .

    I bought a punch of cheap square lipped bases and glued them together in patterns.

    I like using matting board for my boards, thin mdf works well and can be cut with a utility knife.  Matting boards are used in photography.

    Michael’s sells thin plastic and wood in sheets.

    Home depot had some cool metal screens used for radiators.  They also sell that thin plastic for garage sale sign.  It’s sturdy and easy to cut.

    Train stores sell plastic  sheets.  Evergreen and plastruct are the two big brands

    I don’t actually play Mordheim, but I am so obsessed with the lore and the terrain.  I have mostly traditional LOTR 10mm miniatures.  I was hoping to fuse Frostgrave and Mordheim rules together.

     

    I play solo.

    I was able to roll up a dungeon with some scenery and monsters.  I used some piles of rubbles as barriers to create areas like rooms.

    I know this sounds strange but I felt bad that it was in English.  I would have rather watched it in French.

    My two cents for what it is worth . . .

    I thought the movie was pretty dismal.  I feel like the movie wasn’t sure if it should be a love story or a war picture.  Phoenix is usually a good actor, but there really wasn’t much for him to do.  Historical moments were glossed over and major characters simply disappeared from the story.

    The battles were entertaining, although I know absolutely nothing about the time period.

    I’ve seen some great sepia boards and miniatures.  I love the idea, but I think over time it would all look a little drab.

     

    Here are some storage buildings for your boats, or perhaps a Shoggoth.

    I tried experimenting with resin pours and wrecked the first model unfortunately.  I painted the water three times with waves and then I gave up!  The water is more blue in person.

    Still waters run deep?

    Finished Devil’s Reef, with a 12 by 12 tile to keep it desk friendly.  Trying to finish up some Innsmouth terrain before the snow flies!

    A basic graveyard build for Innsmouth.  I was working on some Ghostbuster stuff at the time, so this is the only picture I took.

    I took some of the same walls and styrene and made some terrain that might suit and office, or lab, or maybe some living modules.

    Khurasan does a pack of apes in their prehistoric or planet15 range.  They are nice but angry.

    Inspired by Cy_borg rpg and Killsampleprocess I made some more terrain.  I like the pink and yellow color splashes inside the book.

    Hey, this thread won’t die!

    Just kidding.  I’ve taken a break from Innsmouth but will return soon.

    Barn is 50mm by 75mm roughly.

    Working on a Innsmouth zine.  I also finished a National Grocery Building (top corner).

    Here is the beginning of a game . . .

    I bought this plasticville building a while ago but it was too modern.  I thought I would cyber it.

    As I buy quite a few larger resin pieces from you, I must salute you!  Talk about putting yourself in harm’s way for the hobby.  Thank you!

    They look like they would work for me. They look similar to the ones I have.  That police car looks good.

    Matchbox.  Listed as 1935

    Matchbox 1934

     

    ERTL 1932

     

    I got this one a while ago and ended up trading it away.   I know it is a 1920s car and came in a pack of three.  I didn’t like the open seating.  I didn’t like how it painted up.  All the cars are primed black and then just drybrushed.  I stayed away from some of the more garish colors.  Around the wheels I added a little brown to simulate dirt.  All of them were beat up flea market finds.  Those collectors want a fortune.

    I had a ton of problem finding cars.  The best place I found was the flea market.  Since you’ll probably want to paint them anyway you can find some in the beat up bin.  There are a couple of Marvel cars that were in the 30s vibe.  If you look underneath the car  you can usually find a date.

    Some cars appear often, 1932 pick up trucks, and sedans from 1935 come up often.

    let me know if you want me to send pics.  Ertl made some cool delivery trucks too,

    It’s kind of fun to just push the models around on the coffee table I guess.  Here are a few more shots:


    All together now!

    Terrain is really more of an idea than anything else.  A box to block line of sight, really.  I used to want giant expansive boards but lack the space in my basement to let it happen.  15mm seems more abstract anyways.

    I always waffle.

    Thanks, I’ll post more pictures later.

    The girl is from khurasan miniatures, under the sci fi / cyborg range.

     

    The car isn’t really that big so much as the buildings are really small.  Sort of more the idea of buildings as opposed to actual buildings.  Each tile is only 3 by 3 so it makes it hard to create the awesome skyscrapers in Blade Runner.

    Wow, this must be a huge board.  I am very impressed!  I especially like the harbor and all the boats!  We need to see more pictures.  Great stuff!

     

    I miss my 28mm Innsmouth board terribly.

    I glued square lipped plastic bases to some matting board.  I then cut out small squares of tiled styrene in each one.  Prime black, dry brush and washes.  Super easy
