Amera Vacuum Molded Terrain WIP - Phase 1!
So I have a lot of this stuff. I jumped in deep and got an assortment of everything. The city buildings (not shown here) are a bit dodgy, strange to assemble, and look very generic next to a GW or Pegasus building. The rest however, are really quite fantastic. They are surprisingly sturdy because they are mostly all one-piece molds, and it's not difficult to add further detail with textured primer, sand, flock, bitz etc. I have to say, I love this terrain. I still have a ways to go before all of these pieces are completed but I believe it will be a relatively easy task. The picture above shows my current state of progress.
I used a combination of primers, some of them textured-primers as you can see. I am such a huge fan of Krylon primer and its "360 degree" spray tip... it sprays perfectly every time. The Rust-oleum "textured" primer was a disaster and splattered large dots everywhere, but the Rust-oleum "stone" worked great. Anyway these babies are ready for a quick airbrushing now (Phase 2)...
