Destroying Pink Foam Elevation

Author: Ashton Sanders

Since my last post, I’ve been slowly hacking away at my section of pink foam that I am using for a Mordheim Urban Hill, and in general for easy elevation. I have also cut some low walls and pillars for the terrain. Here is a view from the front:

And here’s the back:

As you can see, I’ve cut up the pink foam a lot. I did my best to make the tiles look like they cracked from some heavy pressure. More images will come later with close ups of how the cuts look. All the walls in the above images are just set in place (not glued down). Here is one section of wall that has been “destroyed” and glued down:

I still have a long way to go, but I’m working at it. I also have a pile of great ideas churning in my mind. =]

    Dear Ashton,

    amazing work!

    I am new to terrain building, but I especially like the cracks in your walls – how did you achieve this? Do you have a tutorial somewhere maybe?

    Thanks a lot,

    Hi Bora,

    The cracks in the walls were created with a simple razor blade (box cutter). I made two short, parallel cuts to create a small crack and repeated it over and over to make the cracks go in random directions.

    Thanks for the comment.
