Doing surfaces on Terrain is mostly not necessary to do when doing a realistc base. You work with static grass, plants of any kind, ground material, artificial water or similar things. No need for sculpting here. But I need sometimes ground for more or less fantastic or weird figures, so I have to do surfaces with some speciall structures sometimes. Here is one of them, I have done last week. Over a base of playdoo (for using not so much magic sculpt) I rolled some ms to a plate of sculpey, a bit thicker, layed it over the playdoo and started bringing in some unregular structure.
For that, I use some dentist tools, my favorite working tools for sculpting out everything (we will discuss tools later on) and my trusty moisted brush. The whole surface was done in ca. two hours, just before the ms hardened. I "carved" in every little plateau by pressing in different ancles of my tool and do all details mostly with pressing in different things, from rolled aluminium balls, stones, everything that could create interesting and detailed effects. Some small details were done seperatly and modelled in the surface, doing a make over with small amounts of ms, rolled to thin pieces. When completed, the playdoo will be removed, and some more details, this time scratched up machinery pieces will be added to the sides and bingo, a finished alien landscape for sinister figures.
