I use Hexon too, for all my 6mm/10mm gaming and it looks really good IMHO.
I don't think it works as well for 28mm gaming though.

I created a modular river for my hexon terrain a while ago.

Here is a pic:




It's based on layers of foam board, airbrush paint job and resin for the water effect.

I typed clearer instructions but lost the post. Just le me know if you are interested - then I'll try again tomorrow.

In the pics you will also see some modular cliffs that are easy to make. And on the Architects of War website you can find good instructions for creating large forests. Just let me know if you would like to get some lessons learned - there surely are quite a few  ;)

So this weekend I spent some time on the project.

I painted all castle pieces grey. I took a black and a white artist acrylic colour and mixed them to a grey and watered it down considerably.

I then painted all pieces with it.

Some before after pictures:



I then took some black and watered down even more to make a "wash". It did get the whole thing quite dark.

I then took some Vallejo grey london colour and drybrushed all (!) of the castle.
See some stages here:


After the drybrush I gave a few pieces some Nuln Oil. and a light grey vallejo highlight. No picture yet. I will do this with all the rest of the pieces this weekend as well.

After that the plan is to do more individual colours on some pieces and detail work...

Soooo time-consuming and I was literally painting the whole weekend and my hand was so cramped up..  :o

Reinforcements arrived in the form of a couple of Albion miniatures; a Truthsayer and a Dark Emissary. Pictured here with a couple of Treemen that can be used as count as Fen Beasts / Bog Beasts and a few Empire for comparison.



And a castle progress pic:

A little update as a new host of buildings arrived in the mail today:




And the siege towers have been glued together and received a little base paint:

Time for a question:
What do you think of this old Citadel Toad Dragon for Warmaster. I was thinking of modelling (not that I am that good at it) a Tamurkhan on top. This baby has wings as well but I haven't included them, not the least because I presently misplaced them for a bit.. Anyways, Tamurkhan's Toad Dragon had no wings either..

I know the scale is a bit off, but still...

Some images and comparisons. I included Archaon and other Storm of Chaos characters and some Empire soldiers.
The Undead Reaper is from Kallistra (the base is GW) - all other models are from GW.






So what do you think? To Tamurkhan or not to Tamurkhan?

Oh and the link to the Ebay seller selling the new buildings. The quality is superb!!

Those buildings do look nice - I have looked at them a couple of times on ebay, but it is good to see them in the 'flesh'

I think your toad dragon fits fine - most WM monsters are really big, which is one of the things I like, big monsters aren't constrained by the practicalities of making them!

Are those all Total Battle buildings or is it a mix?
