Some painted boats (next time I'll add a second layer of cardboard for each boat...) and templates for small house modules. They will be stacked like the common matryoshka buildings and will have a set of "China Town" windows.

Love how everything looks so far. Hope you finish your goal and it is to your expectations.

And now the last and most complex boat, still wip. After that I'll start with concrete quays.

No seriously, those look awesome, all it needs now is a spotlight and a HMG on the end like a coast guard boat

Just an idea for this board: electric tea light candles like the ones linked below would be an awesome way to make light up buoys. You can usually find them at the $1 (or 1€, 1£, 100¥) shop. They would not offer too much linear cover but would look cool.

Keep up the awesome work!

Hahaha! I have some of those (they are in in pharmacy glasses for ambient light). I'll try it!

Just a quick los-blocker made from last paper sheets (aka upcycling rubbish). In Brandenburg/Berlin there is a quite funny name for illegal dumps in forests (Waldfriedhof / forest cemetery). So.... well... maybe or not somebody still lives here, but who really wants to find it out? ;)

Really not a beauty, but after all, I imagine at least some Ariadnians go to church. So this could be a kind of inspiration.

It would fit in well considering that each Ariadna nation came from places with a large amount people who follow christianity.

patches are for normies ;) The shirt is not 100% perfect, but the little small happy mistakes can only be spotted if you come really close to me...

Made with a graphtec vinyl plotter, so every color had to be pressed after the other. I started with red, then black, then blue, then yellow.

I have been trying to make similar effects on bases but I haven't reached the same degree as you. Any tips you can give me on making a colorful, grassy, flower-filled, watery terrain?

Thank you! 

Being colorful: don't be afraid using bright grass :) and paint the bottom of ponds not plain black, rather go with sand or green.

Flowers: well, I cheated with tufts. But these tufts are mostly grass with colorful small parts of kitchen sponges on them. Just dip ends of grasses in pva and dip them in colored chalk or spongeparts.

Grass: some years ago I was frightened glueing grass on terrain. I always paint and drybrush earth, even  though it is not really visible. Covering everything in watered pva made me uncomfortable. But actually it is a messy fun!

Water: well, I cheated again. The inner parts are "woodland grass" (model train supplies) and are partly covered in water effect. So it looks like swamp plants.

@Krell These are all great tips. Thank you for sharing them with me. I'll start to use them on my bases soon enough.

testing all my "green terrain" for a lonely small forest/meadow near a small town. I know, the car is an anachronism, but if the US-Ariadnians build choppers, they might build 60ies-style cars, too.20231983_1921709038100604_6109841308719520232320_1921709118100596_7563468861226620248158_1921709144767260_4979743197955220232242_1921709254767249_7279548334201520157494_1921709328100575_5784335288114220232840_1921709358100572_55769202994530

Job well done Krell. Someday I shall reach your level of experience in terrain building.

I have to thank you for motivating me all that time. It is really not that difficult. Take sticks and tree branches, wash them in ink, stick them to styrofoam and seal the foam with pva and paint/sand. Bushes and tree branches are made with filter foam and flock (and varnish/spray glue).

Thank you. I'm glad that the encouragement has helped motivate you to continue your work.
