One thing I’ll have to consider is how to do good water effects on the terrain tiles I’m planning on building. Thankfully, the TerranScapes channel has a Water Effects video and another experimenting with Silicon.
Dartfrog06mm blog provides an example of a river done in tiles, although it’s 6mm scale. I like the way the river tiles are overlaid on the base terrain.
Now some products. This will not be an exhaustive list, but I have to start somewhere;
- An overview of hobby water effects products for wargames terrain
- Vallejo’s Still Water
- Woodlands Scenics Realistic Water Product Overview
My first experiment involved mixing the colour in Craftsmart’s Liquid Gloss to make water effects for rivers and ponds. The results are promising, but next time I’ll paint the base before covering with the clear gloss.
