  1. Field of terror terrain

    As soon as I saw the field of terror story encounter in the newest Wyrd Chronicles I knew I had to make this scenario happen---Tuesday is Malifaux night at my FLGS, and so is All Hallow's Eve this year! The three pieces below are what I have come up with so far. This was partly inspired by other images in the same issue of the Chronicles, e.g., the wasp nest. This is on a 50 mm marker, and will be added to a generic terrain tile, such as a flat forest bit, to indicate that it is terrifying, hazardous, or both. With a scarecrow being a main character in this story encounter, I wanted to have a corn field. Having the corn in tight rows would be more realistic, but I wanted to keep it playable as well. Anyone have any other ideas of how to pull this off? Maybe separate magnetic strips, but that is a lot of magnetizing. This is my hanging tree. It also has a wasp nest (inspired by Marko Paunovik). I will play this as hazardous due to the Malifaux-sized wasps that will come out of that nest. The tree is part of an antler I cut up. I especially like the organic-looking bottom of the 'tree' where the antler joined the skull. The victim is put together with the male multi-part kit. I had to mod the shoulders a bit to get the arm placement right. I did this in a hurry to be ready for this week's game night, so they are quite rough. I will make a post about how these pieces worked in the Field of Terror scenario. Cheers all.

    @H4ml3t Try using a tripod or steady braced hand and no flash. A darker background will help as well---it looks like your camera is trying to balance the color with a very light background.

    Hmm, blue is a good nautical color.

    Here is my October work-in-progress photograph. I have some base coats down on the Shasta Vidaya guards.

    @Shock & Awe Yes, models count for the month in which they are finished. Of course, next year I won't be running this and someone else may want to tweak the rules a bit.

    @klatschi okay. If you manage to find time I will catch it and update the tracking sheet. Man, where does time go, amiright?

    Tracking sheet should be up to date again now. If I have missed anything, let me know by PM. I am going to stop monitoring this thread to watch the October one now. Great work this month.

    What is her station? We decided that for 0SS models to go with 12 SS for henchmen, 10 for enforcers.

    Because I work >70 hr/wk and haven't had a chance to go back through all the posts this month to find the things I missed. But I will.
