Sometime around the end of September I was issued a hobby related challenge via Instagram to make a piece of gaming terrain, so I had a little think… I wanted it to be something I could use for our games at the moment so nothing too fantastical or science fictional… Also it had to be cost effective to build as I’d already blown my monthly hobby budget… I had a look at the old difficult terrain I’d made a little while back and thought you know what I can make these look better. So here we go “difficult terrain” redux…

Materials needed:

*Few handfuls of rocks. I used slate. Seriously use your head DO NOT BUY THIS STUFF!!! you will find it laying around if you go on a little stroll.
*UHU & PVA glue.
*Sand grittier the better.
*Cheap paints, black, brown, couple of greys & a light green.
*Cardboard from food packaging cut into circular shapes for basing.
*A couple of nackerd old paint brushs, bigger the better, gets the job done quicker.
*Optional grass tufts or static grass.

So now you’ve collected your bits & bobs let’s begin…

1.)Place your rocks onto the circular bases with UHU or strong contact glue, stack them any way you like.
2.)Cover bases with PVA & add sand. Let stand for a day.
3.)Coat everything black. Paint or spray optional. I used a cheap rattle can from a pound shop , Dollar store in US. I guess.
4.)Then coat everything in brown.
5.)Dry brush everything grey.
6.)Again dry brush everything in a lighter grey.
7.)Then a very light dry brush of green on the rocks.
8.)Add tufts

I give a better step by step guide on my blog with photos as i always have trouble adding the photos on this site.

Again this is nothing amazing just a very cheap and cost effective way of adding scatter terrain to your table. Ideal as difficult terrain. Also it's not overly heavy like a previous comment I'd had previously, as these are only scatter pieces.

Gosh I love seeing nice scatter terrain like this! I would love to make some with cork bark at some point. Obviously you have to buy it but it's much lighter to carry than true rock.

Thank you, it's funny you should mention cork bark, when I made my last batch I used it for some of the pieces.when I met up with a friend for beerhammer last weekend we both said it was a shame I had none left for the current batch I'd made. Think I'll have to buy some more. I do like the effect you get out of painting that stuff. :-D
