Cobblestone isn’t the only thing that we’ve been working on. We’ve also spent a little bit of time putting together some of the smaller details. One of the things that we’ve done so far is played around with making some small detail objects with sculpey. We have been thinking of creating things such as crates, barrels, ladders, and other similar items out of sculpey and possibly casting them to a mold. My girlfriend (Hadesdream, she might post on here at some point) sculpted us some really cool sacks out of sculpey the other day. These are not finished yet… they still need to be painted. I think they look awesome and I can’t wait to get them painted and put onto some terrain.
After the failed attempt at cobblestone on the well piece, we decided we needed a new idea. We needed something that would look like cobblestone and not just gravel. We also decided that buying tons of Talus was not cost effective (and finding enough rocks of the right sizes and shapes was not very efficient). I found an idea posted by DarkWingDuck on Tom’s Boring Mordheim Forums for making a cobblestone stamp. This was exactly what we were looking for… it’s simple, it’s consistent, and it’s cheap. Our requirements were slightly different so we decided to come up with our own method. Rather than creating a uniform, patterned cobblestone we wanted something rough and random for our city. We decided on using actual stones to create the pattern to give it a more natural look.
