The Book of One-Space Volcano Terrain Tutorial

The Book of Single Hex Volcano Custom Tutorial




-Supplies Needed-
  • Household aluminum foil
  • Sculpey Oven Bake Clay
  • An official Heroscape single hex Ice Glacier or a small screw driver
  • A conventional or toaster oven for baking
  • A cookie tray
  • Red acrylic paint
  • Gray acrylic paint
  • Paint brush
-Tutorial-
  1. Mold your aluminum foil into the shape of an official single hex Ice Glacier; this shape is about 1 1/2 inches wide at its base and 3 inches tall.
  2. Mold a thin layer of Sculpey over the entire aluminum mold.
  3. Place the official Heroscape glacier against the side of the model and roll the two together as you press them. This should create a nice pattern across the mold.

    or, if you don't have the official Ice Glacier, you could use a small screwdriver to create a similar pattern. Place the flat end of the screw driver on the model near the top and drag down creating small crevices along the sides.
  4. Stand the model up on your baking sheet and place it in the oven.
  5. Bake according to the directions.
  6. Paint the entire surface red.
  7. Go over the raised and bumpy parts of the model with a gray brush, being sure to leave plenty of red crevices and cracks.
  8. Your finished product can now be placed on any hex on the battlefield and used as a Volcano.
NOTES:
  1. The official single hex Ice Glacier is the exact same size and shape as the single hex Rock Outcrop.
  2. The paints used were Apple Barrel paints. They are usually less than a dollar for a bottle at any Wal-Mart or craft store.

Re: The Book of Single Hex Volcano Custom Tutorial

I really wanted to darken the gray with some black, put some yellow between the red and gray and splatter some orange all around. Then drip Yellow and Red on top for flowing lava, but I really wanted to keep it as simple as possible and also match the official design of the hexes.

Thanks for the support though.

Re: The Book of Single Hex Volcano Custom Tutorial

Is there any way we can work the bottoms of these to get them to be flush to the hexes a bit more?

C3G can be played with official Heroscape, but it's not recommended.

You want it to interlock?

I could do a number of things to make it more "lockable", but this really does work great, and it is very easy for just about anyone. It is heavy so it doesn't move around. Essentially, it is a heavy piece of terrain that is more stable than the RotV ruins or even the Warehouse - both of those just sit there.

Re: The Book of Single Hex Volcano Custom Tutorial

I think a locking one would be more aesthetically pleasing and would be more likely to be accepted by the masses due to it looking more "official."

Re: The Book of Single Hex Volcano Custom Tutorial

Will it rest flush on those, though?

Re: The Book of Single Hex Volcano Custom Tutorial

Oh yeah. This guy sit up flush on any flat surface, and is extremely stable - just look at the pics. Seriously, gluing it to a hex or water tile is just a waste of terrain IMO.

Re: The Book of Single Hex Volcano Custom Tutorial

And I'm not really advocating it - that was your comment. I just think this custom might be more widely appreciated if it has an interlocking bottom as part of it.
If that's too complex for what you're going for here, though, I understand. Just trying to offer some outsider feedback.

Re: The Book of Single Hex Volcano Custom Tutorial

I personally don't see the need, but if another member wanted to create a tutorial on how to make interlocking hexes for terrain like this, that would be cool.

Re: The Book of Single Hex Volcano Custom Tutorial

It's not about "need" - it's about putting forth the best possible product that will appeal the most to the masses. At least I was thinking that was the goal here ...
