Objective sighted! - Epic Terrain and Objective markers

Haven't done much painting this week - been rather busy, and work will have me away from home for most of February and March, so i'm just picking away at some things when I can, and been looking to make some more practical terrain and some nice objective markers for my up coming games of NetEpic.

Making some hills/forest bases.

polystyrene pizza bases, cut and PVA glued together, left overnight with some weight on them, sanded down the edges (a bit, i'm not going for ultra realistic here, more playable - so some flat surfaces are good) covered in ready mixed filler and left to cure.

Added some ruins for details (might stick some smaller rocks on and magnets to base trees)
Then painted with a mix of cheap Burnt Umber acrylic paint, PVA, sand and water. this will undercoat the whole piece, add a bit of texture from the sand and the PVA should help to seal and protect it from damage.

Having a rummage around in my bitz box and this started coming together...

An old MK1 Bombard hull, 6mm ammo box, epic flag pole and some fishing bits, some sprue nubbins, and some 40k space marine frag/krak missles.

should end up looking like a little fuel/ammo dump, just to add a bit of purpose to an otherwise dull objective token.

Will update with the finshed results of both of these when done.
