  1. in this thread I'll share my adventures as I go through and design my own terrain I hope you'll enjoy the ride and view as much as I'll enjoy the road ahead of me as a start I'll share the project I'm currently working on and have shared the progress through the last 3~4 months from the first prototype module to the production of a full table in foamcore and to the progression into laser cutting and soon mass production and selling it :^) 12620380_1020589594250684 2_865794720_o.jpg 135 kb · Done and some more pics of the latest results of the laser cutting I've been workimg on form the guys at Every Little War https://www.facebook.com/EveryLittleWar/?fref=ts
  2. All that is in the photo used by me personally in my club. I am the author of all products. For any questions please contact me personally.
  3. Hi guys, been building and painting terrain for infinity / necro / deadzone that are made out of old disused/broken/outdated electronics components. These pieces make each building totally unique and create a kind of junkyard scifi vibe akin to borderlands
  4. https://www.wired.com/2017/01/eerie-photos-take-chinas-neon-lit-alleyways/ The electricity bills must be staggering.

  7. So... The train for the Paradiso mission 205 is already in production (I know, I know, it was about bloody time). I don't have any official images to show but I've seen the prototype in person and I must say it's one sexy, sexy beast which will make a spectacular centerpiece for any Infinity gaming table. It's also compatible with the Bandua "Made for Infinity" containers. We expect to have it available within the next month or two at the most. I'll keep you posted if I manage to grab some photos or any other information.
  8. Hi fellow EI drones, some months ago, we saw the Infinity's terrain rules put in practice officially at the Operation Flamestrike missions. Not long after that, the ITS mission "Rescue", which includes mandatory difficult terrain, was added to the ITS roster. Now, with Tagline, we see another mission that forces the use of difficult terrain. Normally, I would applaud CB's choice to include more tactical depth into missions. The problem, though, is that the difficult terrain rules makes fast (6-2) light infantry useless unless it has the terrain skill. Back in the days of N2, difficult terrain was complicated. What the rules did right, however, was that big, hulking things were at a serious disadvantage while fast, small units gained advantages. In an effort to make things less complicated, CB introduced the "use-second-mov-value"-rule. Mostly, this had a similar effect - those 4-2 MI and low-tech HI got slower, as did 6-4 TAGs. However, with HSN3 CB also introduced fast 6-2 light (and heavy) infantry. As a side-effect, terrain rules make these units mostly worthless. 6-2 LI do mostly serve as mobile strikers - meaning they have low- to mid-range weaponry (Spitfire maximum) and rely on their superior speed to get around the battlefield, while being quite squishy for their points cost as a downside. With terrain rules, these guys go down to 2-2, unable to perform their role. While a 4-2 interventor may not suffer too much from terrain rules (because its main use is not moving around in the middle of the board), our beloved Umbra basically become dead weight. With terrain missions becoming more prevelant at tournaments, I fear for the future of our beloved Umbra. Using a list that contains Umbra becomes a disadvantage in tournaments containing difficult terrain missions and when planning for them, I generally leave them at home. I know there'll be no change coming for this until N4, but what do you think about it? Best regards, Nalim
  9. So, after seeing some amazing things in these forums, I thought I'd try my hand at helping some people make some cheap terrain as well. I got ideas from several places, and this is just a starting place so, I'd love to have any constructive criticism and input. For reference, I got the art for the textures from here: http://www.art.eonworks.com/gallery/texture/texture_gallery_1.html Here is a shot of version one of the template: And here's a link to the PDF: (warning, 25mb) http://tonymccallie.com/webroot/files/hex_pod_v1.pdf Here's the process I used, but I'm open to ideas. The next one I do, I'll take photos of each step. 1. I printed the 2 pages at 100% on regular paper. 2. I cut out each piece carefully with a straight edge and hobby knife. 3. I used spray adhesive (Loctite) to attach the cutouts to black foam core board from Hobby Lobby (approx 3/16" thick). 4. I cut out each piece with the straight edge and hobby knife. 5. Here's the tricky part, I cut a V shape behind each bend and cut angles on the ends where the edges would meet. 6. I cut out the windows and the left and top sides of the door. 7. Glue up with super glue. I did all the design in Inkscape and can make those files available for anyone interested. I'd love to see what we can do to improve this. It looks like I can make each piece for $2-$3 in materials. It's not the prettiest thing, but it's pretty sturdy and seems a lot better than the paper terrain I was making. All feedback appreciated!
  10. http://www.customeeple.com/product/infinity-scenery-framework-4-units/ I always though these were really handy but could never justify them over just using some of my (many many) Cardboard boxes. However with the Red Veil terrain being taller I'm not convinced by the rigidity provided by a box & two layers of foam, especially if multiple models end up on top of it. Are there plans to make a similar framework for the RV buildings?
  11. Hello one and all welcome to my thread that will log my journey as I learn to design/cut mdf terrain on a laser. I've decided to jump right in and have my first project be an alien inspired city-scape that I'm calling Udyra 88 for now. I drew inspiration from my favorite army fluff wise from that other game, the dark eldar, though I do feel the aesthetic of the designs could fit right in on some shady trading world. So to start I will show you some photos of the work in progress shots of the 3 story building I've designed and cut most recently. Modular 3-story building With this piece the the roofs are all removable for play, it also includes optional door/window covers to seal the building up if desired. The building is modular and can be used as a 2 story. I designed a big ladder to allow roof access, and I've designed a large bridge that can connect two of these buildings. Here is a photo of my prototypes of the bridge and the 1 story L shaped building, both don't have any detail etched yet but I will be cutting these with detail this upcoming weekend. I just wanted to ensure the pieces fit together well before I did the long cut with all the details. A list of things I have designed already for this project: -3 story building -1 story building -small crates (2 variations) -large shipping crates (need details designed) -large city wall with small wall connector piece -smoke vents List of things I want to design still/incomplete designs: -objective room -tower -another 1 story building for variety -billboards with removable advertisement options -tree planter boxes Thanks for tuning in guys and I'd love to hear from you about new ideas or suggestions, help me make this the best it can be, -Jared
  12. Hello, here I will upload photos terrane that I do for our club. All terrane author by my friend, and I paint it. If there are any questions about the painting, then be happy to answer)))
  13. Hi there, my names Carlos and I’m from Germany. I started Infinity about 2 years ago and though I don’t play as often as I would like, I’m still a big fan of this game. I like the setting, the miniatures and well of course the great wargaming boards many of you have built. Playing a game of Infinity with painted miniatures on a board with beautiful terrain is simply great. Therefore I’d like to have a unique looking, detailed board myself one day. I bought lots of terrain second-hand, so I already have the possibility to assemble a good Infinity board. But well it’s neither detailed, nor unique. But I’m not only disappointed from the look, it although feels somewhat flat. Of course there are buildings where snipers can get on top, but well, the buildings often just have one way to get to the roof. Therefore a miniature which is in a position like that often won’t move for the rest of the game. I wanted something more overlapping. If you have watched movies like the new Total Recall from 2012 you may know what I mean. Ok, I want platforms, connected with bridges and big enough to provide space for MDF buildings (MAS, Zen Terrain, etc.) or other terrain pieces. As for the style, I imagine a dirty, futuristic trading outpost named “Teferox Bay” for my Corregidor nomads. I’m clearly influenced by Deus Ex Human Revolution, Battle Angel Alita New Order, Overwatch and the already mentioned new Total Recall film. The groundlevel of my board is the warehouse mat from MicroArts (very original, yeah… ^^). But well, I like this mat. Not only does it fit to my imagination of Teferox Bay, it although gave me a nice idea for the surface of the platforms. I bought a second mat and started to cut certain areas to get a two layered battlefield. English isn’t my mother tongue and pictures say more than words anyway, so here a sketch of my planed wargaming board. I already started repainting some of my second-hand terrain and the first platform is also done. I like it, but there is still a lot of room for improvement. The second platform will be much more detailed. But more of it later. This picture demonstrates quite well what the board will look like in the end. A grey city with yellow details. I’d like to add some LEDs to the terrain, but I’ve no clue about technical stuff at all. Maybe a friend of mine can help me a bit with this. As for the second platform I’m constructing right now, I’m trying to add more depth into it by adding more foamboard details, and adding slots for MDF buildings. I think by doing this, the whole terrain gets a more interesting look and also more places to take cover. Obviously it will take a lot more time to finish the whole project, but that’s fine. I already have enough terrain for the board, so everything that’s coming from now on, is just to embellish the scenery. And last but not least a little scenic shot I made. Can’t wait to have the whole board ready. I hope you like it. Oh and though I've a certain image on my mind what my board should look like, feel free to write me your ideas an opinions. As I'm trying to build a somewhat organic grown city, so differences between the platforms are really desired. Let's see what Teferox Bay will look like in the future. I have just so many ideas... ^^
  14. This will be a two part question. First. How do you set up a table? What are you thinking when you place all the terrain? Is it one of you who does it or do both side build? Placing one terrain piece at the time? How open is it or how close are the terrain? Open fire lanes? This came up the last game we had, the second real game after the O:Icestorm missions. He was running Haqq with a lot of CC units and a big TAG while i had snipers, hmg and hackers. Right now we only have three sets of paper terrain, two sets of Operation Ice storm and one that's the same as the USAriadna box terrain. And second. What I find difficult with what we have and what I am missing is building height, stairs, and walkways. The terrain as it is feels a little binary, boxes that you can be on or not, behind or not. What should be the next step, what terrain do you think we are missing? Is it the above mention stairs and walkways or is it other things like walls, small terrain like plants, small boxes and other small covers that can be spread out. cheers, MAlgol
  15. Hi there everyone. So for the few weeks i've been thinking about how awesome it would be to play an Infinity on a table that represented a major transit hub or shopping center? Then I thought that such a table might be too open but if I had some s4 vendor remotes, overturned food court furniture and chairs and a couple of little side shops/restaurants it might work. So overall what I would like get y'alls feedback on is: Have any of you played on a table and do you have any pics and just generally what do you think of the idea?
  16. building

    Hello everyone, I am terrain and graphic designer seeking for inspiration. I'm working on new building and I need some opinion about it. I wish to design all table, with special buildings, and many new forms of terrain in that style. My friend design for me concept arts of mat. This could be really nice table but with your help I want to make it very playable. I need some ideas what kind of buildings (hospital, mine, port...etc.) and smaller parts (gate, lamp, container...etc.) of terrain you wish to be designed for infinity? I repay for assistance, providing some designs or creating some terrain for you. Thanks
  17. Just finished reading the book and am looking forward to playing the campaign. With the rapid growth forest, I want to include at least some wooded or jungle terrain in my boards. At first read, the movement rules through jungle / woods seem that they could end up eating a lot of orders. Is this the case? For Paradiso games, how much jungle / woods do you use?
  18. After going to a few tournaments and reading and viewing lots of Flamia island reports with cool terrain i feel i need to up my game , i needed to take the plunge and paint my white terrain, I spray painted "TME plast craft uncolored" black! no going back! terrifying momment also spayed a few other small boxes e.g phone boxes bought some acrylic paint pens 2-4mm got to work, I was suprised when I googled I could not find any Tron inspired game terrain! plast craft stuff had the detail lines marked out and the pen was able to follow the little grooves quite well.. for the plain boxes i cut out a little line template to trace around.. these are the result might get some game time with it in the next few days also attempted my 1st paper craft as you can see in the middle and picked up some aquarium plastic trees any way really like how it turned out.. ordered some foam core to attempt some of my own building designs next!
  19. The purpose of this thread is to hopefully create a handy repository for ready-made advertising clip art for terrain. All contributions are welcome. I'm not placing any restrictions, but I'd prefer to keep the emphasis on COMMERCIAL ADVERTISING as opposed to GRAFFITI or WALLPAPERS. Take the first two as an example of the former and the later. The Coca-Cola advert is exactly the sort of thing you could slap on a billboard. The Nomad Molon Labe, while certainly useful for decorating things, is not something you'd expect a soulless corporate executive to approve. Nor is it really trying to sell anything; a bit of work could turn it into a paid political message, though. Then again, plenty of us aren't that picky about realism in their terrain, and just want to spice up their battlefield with some pretty pictures that are somewhat in context. If you'd stick it in your personal billboard, that's ultimately all that matters. Some pointers for contributions: Bigger is better. Upload the (reasonably) largest image you can, so detail isn't lost as people rescale it for printing. Credit were credit is due. If you've remixed someone else's art, try to link back to their homepage, gallery, DeviantArt account, etc. Leave room. Going back to the Coca-Cola example here, note how there's plenty of unimportant space all around the edges that can be cropped out to squeeze the image into whatever space someone has to fill.
  20. I wanted to try my hand a hexagonal design, and this is the result: I think I'm going to add a logo and have a few of these cut for me...
  21. Hey all. So after seeing the absolutely phenomenal boards that were at the Infinity Northern Alliance, Northern Open 3 tournament I went to just over a week ago, I have decided to finally crack on with my own board. I've done a hell of a lot of gluing and below is what I've finally come up with. I think it's still a long way off in terms of I need more stuff, it's actually insane just how much terrain you need for a 4x4 board. So hopefully later on this month or after Christmas I'll have acquired some walls and road blocks to fill the gaps. Currently I'm still not sure what colour scheme to paint them, but I have seen a really cool colour scheme from JohnnyM on Data Sphere, which I've put in a pic below. Now I think that's too much grey for me, but if just the details were that colour I think it would look really cool. So I might give it a try, as I do believe you see far too many grey buildings in this game, whereas I want my board to be crazy bright colours and really in your face. Anyway, here you go guys, here's how it's looking so far
  22. A few days ago, with my last order at MAS came a surprise. The (really nice and open) guys from Poland sent me some items of their new Kickstarter to have a look at those and tell them what I think about it: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1008762441/infinity-terminus-segments Of course, I want to share my thoughts and some pictures. First let's have a look at the cute van, which is part of the KS. The material is the usual foamed plastic MAS already uses for some of the bigger terrain pieces. It is as sturdy (and really sturdy) and lightweight as usual. The news is: it comes with a very smooth surface and more details I ever expected to be possible with this material. It still is no resin but it gets close. The model is one part of foamed plastics and some parts of HDF for details. It comes primed. See for yourself: Now, let's have a closer about the high grade details I was talking about: The second item I got was the Daedalus Bus. It's a HDF model with some prints on acrylics added and two parts made of a plywood (I guess - is also might be a wrought material like a very low densitiy fiber board. It feels like low density cardboard.) The prints are really high quality and the overall design is convincing. To be hones, I just love it. It's a great addition for every city themed gaming table. Building the thing is no big deal at all. The pieces fit smoothly and even though, it's quite a impressive number of parts, it's far from complicated (even I did manage to do it without any instruction). The dimensions are fitting: the height of the bus is about 5.8 cm (circa 1.5 cm more than S2) This of course doens't make a "realistic" model, when it comes to size alone, but when you take a look at the pics at the KS you might come to the same conclusion as I did: it just fits. (Will be back in 20 minutes to share the pics...)
  23. Hello terrain builders out there, this is my first try at building something else than carving laminate insulation into shape. Maybe posting my progress will keep me working on it without too long delays. Moreover a thread like this is what I was looking for before I started building the chapel because I wanted to know what this awesome thing looked like if not built by a professional and photographed by another professional. So maybe if the end result does not look too shabby it inspires other beginners to try their luck with this chapel. Step One: glueing the parts together: Everyting fit perfectly together. After I figured out that not the floor of the "inside balcony" has to rest on the smaller pillars but only its outside walls, the instruction "manual" (actually only 2 pages necessary) made sense again. I was impressed especially how some flat U-shapes and circles all turned into 3D and almost realistic looking pillars. The roof and towers are missing here. The roof for no good reason as it was ready, the tower for the reason that I want to include LED-lighting on it and the complete chapel works even without it (though the tower cant stand without the chapel, still great modularity!). (to be continued, Step 2 is photographed and Step 3 is 50% built bt I am running out of time now.)
  24. Towards the end of last year I purchased a fair bulk of terrain second hand that someone I know impulse bought but never built. About the same time my partner and I bought a new house which included a shed / garage thing with its own power supply. I decided to redo my infinity table(s) for new found space and new found piles upon piles of MDF! Old Table: http://trapthem.tumblr.com/post/116605164106/done-a-few-more-things-since-i-took-these-the Mostly self cut with plans from the laser cut open source thread, with some microarts and thmxcessories stuff. New House: http://trapthem.tumblr.com/post/139997990776/quiet-due-to-selling-the-old-place-and-getting So with the new house I ripped the shed apart leaving the walls, workbench and electricity. Literally ripped welded metal off the walls while keeping the walls there. Annoying? Yeah... I then proceeded to start building a hobby table I could also use for commercial product work (photographer by trade) but also so I could start running some games with friends. Few hundred $$ of pine and some reclaimed floorboards (natural timber, sah nice) knocked this together. Well knocked most of it together except when the ex-carpenter father in law saw what a shit job I did on the solid construction side of things took it apart and put it together more solidly. I then sanded and stained it. 10'5' table. I also made the switch to mats to accommodate the new space and max out work area and have less board storage. The New Table(s): I sold the old table off and used the funds to procure a big pile of BP Laser terrain and maybe some extra armies The current stuff below is a bit of a mish mash of BP Laser, CNC Miniature Scenery, THMXcessories, Battllefield Accessories and Jackal Designs. I've then thrown in Micro Arts objective room and some left over bits for detailing as well as some Micro Arts Resin Objective markers for ITS 2016. The pictures in my first two weeks of flamestrike reports: http://flamestrike.warconsole.com/commander/trapthem are all some of the built and not detailed parts of the board on a MAS icestorm mat. I also have a 4x4 grass fatmat with a 4x4 alpine fatmat on the way and a 6x4 gamemateu mat on the way as well. The weeked just gone I spent a lot of time detailing trim and interiors and sealing the wood. Currently I am working on the painting side of this... it is a little... intense... I've gone way over budget and heaven't learned much but I think the results should be something good that should cover a couple tables worth of dense fights or 3-4 euro style tables maybe. I wish this all the batch painting going on right now...
  25. Hello guys, comrades from Flamestrike campaign was interested in those. So here is my blueprints for holo trees. Hologram thingy should be cut from 3mm clear acryl. Red lines - are "half cuts" - laser in cut mode but cuts in only 1 - 1.5 mm (sorry for bad english here). This was done to avoid "engraving", I believe this cheaper. Afterwards I have filled these lines with "luminiscense" (turns out not so luminous) paint. Of course, you can you clear-green acryl, but i can find this kind of acryl in my town. Base consists of staked HDF layers. I have filled it with a mix of sand and PVA to add weight and stability. Mask tree - paint - unmask - done. Idea was taken from "Satellite Reign" game. Like here https://thecakeisaliegaming.files.wordpress.com/2015/02/holographic-tree-02.jpg Enjoy. terrain - holo-trees (3 & 4 mm).zip
