Here we are with a new nice tutorial by our friend MorTap (check his blog here: El espacio de Atticus). This time MorTap shares how to prepare craters in a very easy (and cheap) way.
Following the idea of decorating our table with small details which improve the atmosphere of the battle, I bring to you a simple tutorial to made craters. Recycling some stuff at the same time!.
We will need old CDs, plasticard, modelling putty, foamed PVC and sand.
With modelling putty we start preparing small spaghettis. Then we put on the CD’s forming circles of diferent sizes. These circles will be our craters! Indeed, we can place several circles on the same CD to recreate several concentrated impacts of the field artillery. With a small piece we can fill the gap of the disc.
We can easily texturize the foamed PVC with a modelling lancet or knife. We can draw geometric motifs on the cross and some squares on the slabs. I usually use a rock to press the PVC to get a nice texture.
We add sand to the base, and small rocks and PVC pieces to create slab fragments which have suffered the artillery fire.
