Knowledge is power

I have been one myself!

Now then.....Knowledge. I decided to make some smaller stuff for terrain. Namely books and scrolls. And after having finding more of my foamcard I found it pretty easy to do! Here is how.

Foamcard cut in the form you want it. The one of the right was the tester for cover. Which is actually just a piece of sketchbook paper. The left one is the tester for how I could make it look like pages. It is a fleshwash, pure and simple. Then a thin liner to make it look like more layers.

Craft glue is highly recommended as superglue will leave a mark and....
Well...Just look at the next picture...

Sigh....Well back to the books. I marked of the edges and used kids colourpens to give a bit more to the books. The brown ones are actually fleshwash again. Really easy and makes it look more like leather.

 There you go. I like to keep it simple and I think it works nicely. Now to make something they can be stacked in... I have a friend working on that at the moment. Looking forward to see what he comes up with.
Warbears and stagriders! How freaking cool is this?! I can easily see them in games of Kings of War or just because...WARBEARS! The project has funded, so get in on the action to get them at good prices. Here is the link to the KICKSTARTER.

Yes, he fell asleep like that. Not much painting one can do like that...
Take care out there in the real world.
