This article contains step-by-step instructions on how to create a mountain which can be used as scenery for your gaming.

Step One

[gal_img]1168[/gal_img]Take the sports part of your newspaper (Any section will do however). Create a kind of cave out of it and fix the edges with needles. Fill the space with additional pages. Crumple these to get a kind of rock-form. Then, if you have the shape you wanted (or what it randomly became), take the gypsum (Plaster of Paris). Take a basin with water to wet the gypsum (For those who didn't know that). Put it around the newspaper to make the mountain solid. Then wait... (Might take some time to dry it. Some hours to some days depending on sunshine and humidity)

Step Two

[gal_img]1169[/gal_img]When the gypsum has dried, you can paint the mountain. For covering great areas and having minimal costs, take some water colours (you won't see anything of the colours later on, so it's equal, what you take).The upper area is painted green, the lower brown (that's what the area here around looks like). The Front area is painted grey becoming darker as you come deeper into the inner area, finishing black. The front area is also covered with small stones to let the mountain look more realistic. Don't take that superglue you take for your miniatures, but 'All-purpose adhesive'(I.e. Contact adhesive, not superglue or plastic glue). Again, wait. (the glue has to dry too.)

Step Three

[gal_img]1170[/gal_img]Now you can cover the green parts with 'grass' and the brown with 'earth'. The parts around the trees are covered with 'earth' and can contain other kinds of plants (I added some mushrooms).

Creating the Mushrooms

[gal_img]1171[/gal_img]Take the marked round thing from an old sprue frame and a half wooden pearl, glue then paint them. Finished.

More Detail

You could add a trophy. Take some bitz and a piece of wood. Cut the piece to shape the right trophy. The Ork arm has been cut to show the end of its bone. Add some 'blood' and every Kroot will have it's fun.
