The Mega Post… Moonscape Finished

moonscape craters

I finished up my first set of Moonscape craters tonight.  I have to say… The results are better than anticipated.

I wanted these to match my Realm of Battle Gameboard so I opted for the blasted dirt look rather than the gray up heaved bed-rock scheme.  The colours are those used in the Citadel Scenery Pack and the edges were textured using the Vallejo Black Lava.  Here’s a picture of them sitting on my desk after being primed.  The Black Lava does a nice job to cover up those horrid and unsightly flat edges.


After priming them black I used the Citadel spray gun and applied on a nice even coat of brown over the whole crater.  I then used a large flat drybrush to make the black blast area in the center and then drybrushed Ochre brown over the outer edges.  Finally I applied Devlan Mud wash to the deepest crevasses.

Here are some other projects that I am slowly working on.  Three tanks for my Space Marine army.  I’ve not done much other than prime them and use the spray gun to give them a coat of Mechrite Red, but it’s a start.

My most recently painted Space Marine squad got their decals and were designated tactical squad no. 10.

I assembled my Shrine of the Aquila.  Honestly, I had forgotten I bought the thing.  I was under the bed pulling out some paints and such for the Moonscape and there it was.  I’ll most likely paint it up to match the picture on the box, but somehow tie it in to the rest of my buildings.  The Shrine is HUGE…  Frosty the Snow Marine gives you size comparison.


Well, I’m afraid that’s all for now.  Thanks for stopping by.  Cheers!  :)


  1. Awesome progress Oni. Love the Blastscape colours, I was going for that sort of colour too to match my bases. I have duly noted the receipe. Good looking Genesis squad too. You have been busy.

  2. Big up to Frosty the Snowmarine ... keeping it real!

  3. Great progress update Oni. That Shrine is humongous!!

  4. Glad to see that frosty made an appearance again!

  5. Moonscape look brilliant!
    Thank for the comment on my fledgling blog =]
    Looking forward to checking out the rest of your work
