Been cleaning up and reorganizing hobby room to a standard of chaotic order, instead of Chaos rules and things are disappearing into the warp. Well I'm still deciding what I want to paint or what I have to paint, and then a thought hit me. Why don't I have any nice terrian pieces? Well what it comes down to for me is that it's boring and takes up my time painting figures. So I ask myself if I am going to take the time to paint decent miniatures wouldn't I want them to look nicer next to a nice painted piece of terrian instead of felt? Of course I would.
Well a friend of mine (Skip) showed up to CincyCon with some really nice terrain pieces he had picked up from Worldsmith Industries and I just loved them. Now I know my friend probably told me beforehand about them, but it must have went in one ear and out the other. Seeing them in person though got my attention.
I picked up three different size forest bases along with some tree inserts, and whats really cool inserts if you want trees out of the way. This makes them multi usable in Saga for Woods or rocky ground. We all know permanant terrain pieces are lovely but sometimes you want to move a tree out of the way and these nicely made resin pieces from Worldsmith Industries fit the bill for me.
I ordered through this gentleman and was able to pay for it using Pay Pal and three days later, bang they show up on my doorstep! Can't beat that service. Having them in hand and looking them over you have your typical air bubble here or there, and some resin that needs to be cut or sanded from the mold, but I have to say I really didn't have to work that hard to overcome this. I am really pleased with the product. I especially like the textured terrain as I can use dry brushing techique to make them look really nice with little effort.
As Worldsmith says you need to wash them with mild detergent to get the mold release oils off before you prime them. Here are a few photos of what I have done so far.

As I go and finish them up I'll post some more pictures of them up close so you can see the detail of the resin piece better.
