-Small or medium squad-figures, on a roll of 13 or below, are destroyed.
-Small or medium hero-figures, on a roll of 13 or below, take 1 wound and must roll again until they roll higher than a 13. On a roll of 14 or above, the hero's turn ends.
-Large and Huge figures, on a roll of 13 or below, take 1 wound and must roll again. On a roll of 14 or above, the figure may Attack as usual

Figures within 6 clear-sight spaces of Gigantus must re-roll the d20 at the end of every round.


Then give the angry flower a Defense of, say, 2 and lots of Lives. It'll be treacherous to get to him, best to send a heavy-hitter, and fun to tear into him once you get there.

Re: Glenns Customs ( Plant Monster 3/12/09)

Karl with a k -
Read the post, thanks a lot dude.
Spiteofthedice-
I like that, I'll take it. It makes more sense to roll for
straight up wounds or death with a character like this. After
all he could chomp a Jotun in half in a bite. But were you suggesting
that the player entering the attack zone rolls for his own damage
then continues to roll until they no longer receive damage ? I really
want to chomp Raelin, or anything with wings. But I'm totally going
to roll with this idea maybe 9 life as to not make him too ridiculous. Cost
220 ?
Scottishlad,
Thanks for the compliment
Sonlenahand-
Yah maybe only 2 defence dice or else no one would let
me play it.

Battle on Alpha Prime Terrain

I recently received my Wave 9 set via UPS! Oh yeah! Upon
arrival I had to get a last minute game going and what better
place to have the battle than my Alpha prime terrain. It was
assembled quickly because I was pressed for time, but when
the tiles are stacked according to color this terrain really pops
out.
The clumps of black fish terrain bushes give a player
the same advantage as jungle terrain (can not move through).
All small single or double leaf bushes are for aesthetics only and
are passable. If there is a tiny piece of asteroid in the middle of
a hex you spend 2 moves to (hop) over it. The spiked rocks are
LOS blockers and are 6 hexes high. The rubble pile and hot
asteroid may be flown grappled or leaped over only. There are
other measurements for the other fortifications but on to the
crafting that this section is for discussing.

First off a nice perspective view of the terrain. You may notice the
small fort from a past customs contest. It was made from a DVD player's packaging foam,glitter glue and paint. Fairly simple. The rubble pile was made from smaller strips of the same foam glued together then spray painted for a molten effect. Then it was painted with Acrylic metallic colors.


Next is an overview of the whole battlefield.

You can see below some of the first tiles I created for the set underneath the Kyrie army. They were spray painted a dark blue(Krylon plastics spray paint) then I made a hex stencil and moved it along each tile giving them small spray with metallic regular spray paint.
This allowed me to make many tiles fairly quick, but I later found drybrushing to give a more professional look.


A closer view of the rubble. The silverish tiles growing the small bushes were sprayed in the plastic blue and drybrushed with acrylic silver.

New wave 9 figures getting ready for a charge. In the back there is a broken transformer made from an electrical relay and other scraps. The terrain here was sprayed and or drybrushed copper tones.

I tried to make the terrain look completely enriched with metals. I used a few gold tones here that all came with the same paint set.

My fiancee was Sujoa here and she got taken out by our new Dwarf! Though she kept her Mohican Tribesman untill the end and wound up winning the game. Anyways you can get a better idea of how I achieved a glowing effect on the asteroid here. By painting the brightest colors inthe center of the holes and drybrushing darker ones outside. The asteroid was carved from those porous styrofoam balls you find at teaching or craft stores. They are usually used to model planets in solar system displays.

And one last perspective view.


This is still a work in progress. I actually want to build another asteroid with a type of heat recovery boiler vessel over it. The steam would drive a turbine that would generate power to a small supercomputer facility I'm working on. Well, working on and off is more like it. I'm sure everyone knows how it is. Customs creation comes in waves just like our figures. I hope everyone likes it so far. Happy scaping.
Glenn

Re: Glenns Customs ( Alpha Prime 7/28/09)

I have to say that is some of the most amazing looking custom terrain I have ever seen. It is simply amazing to look at.

+ Rep for the quality!

Re: Glenns Customs ( Alpha Prime 7/28/09)

Thanks everyone, I guess your worst critic is always yourself.
I actually was upset that I didn't drybrush everything when it
was finished. But the spraypaint really moves things along.
I thought I went over pretty much how I made
everything in the thread. Anyone with some paint can do it really.
most of the structural pieces were already shaped how they appear.
A DVD players packaging screams custom terrain . Just trim them down a bit and paint them. Hot glue some scrap pieces by the edges and thats it.
Oh yeAH also important is to put a thin coat of vaseline
on the edges of the hexes with a q-tip after all the paint dries. Well, thats if you decide to paint the sides of the hexes like I did. Otherwise they will
be difficult to get apart.

Glenns Customs ( Alpha Prime Main Base)

The shape of the structure was for the most part already as is . I think it was a part of someone's PS3 packaging. I got it from the big trash bin in the basement of my building as usual.

I shaved off most or the little circle thingies
in the foam, shaped it, and coated it with some
school glue gel.


Its slightly higher than fourteen hexes on
the rooftop. I embedded a double hex in the
foam so I could put a painted ladder there later.


Some transition huh? Sorry for lack of
more production pics but I got in the zone
and just kept going I'll explain something else
before each photo.


The hexes on the roof are exactly aligned with the
hexes that would be underneath them. I did this by
mounting single hexes to a few corners of the structure
to hold it in place. Then I marked the roof and pushed
hexes in the foam. Now its fully compatible with scape rules!
Line up the footing hexes and you have lined up the roof!


The electrical conduits linking everything are beads
and strips of hot glue! I love the way it came out. It
looks more organic rather than just putting some lego
pieces or something on the sides. It also easier. It does
take some patience to paint though and I recommend using
a hair dryer to speed up coats.


The .50 cal is shaped blue polystyrene (pink works too)
clear beads for camera's on top,old radio antenna for the barrel,
and hot glue once again for wires and texturing the barrel. The
ladder is an official ladder painted copper to blend in.


I could not resist. I ripped up army guys you buy in
those bags of 30 or so. They are the same scale as Heroscape
figures. Intestines and brain matter done with hot glue. The
spikes are toothpicks wrapped in you guessed it, hot glue.


On the roof is a custom figure. He is a repainted Mage Knight
Blade Golem I call Major Buzzsaw. Lame I know. I'm all about
the cheese.


My favorite picture. All the walls inside the base are covered
in black or blue glitter and scrap electronic parts. The LCD
screen is custom. I printed a simple interface in photoshop
and matted it with clear plastic and a piece of tracked rubber.


A closeup of the computer with different lighting. The lights
are little submersible floral lights. I love them! I even made a
few towers out of paper towel rolls to hold a few as a light pole.
The final pics I will post of Alpha Prime terrain with be of the
Main Base and custom LED Tower lit night game. I will remove
all but one of original Alpha Prime pics at this time because the
project will be complete and it saves space on the thread.


Finally an overhead view. When lighting a night game
with mini LED's it helps to have a regular light in the room
that you can leave on, but dim a little. This way all the colors
you spent so much time dry-brushing don't disappear.


That's all for now. The next time I play a game with be The Siege On Alpha Prime scenario in all its LED lit glory. Then I am quitting on Alpha Prime to
move on to other customs. Maybe a bridge or something.

The whole base was painted using acrylic paints mostly metallic colored. I used all the regular dry-rushing methods you can learn about in the forums. I don't recommend coating your pieces with school glue gel. I find now that it is too flexible, it won't break but it can chip your paint if you bump it too hard. The veteran custom terrain makers have good advice for sealing foam in their threads.
