A friend and I were talking one night and we both went to turn the conversation at the same time to the Daemons Stump, as I had been reading about it here and he had been reading a bit about it in his new Daemons book, and so we had a lenghty talk and decided what the hell and are currently working on making a full campaign for Daemon stump complete with rules, fluff and terrain. When it is eventually finished we would like to make this site… Sooo I was wondering if anyone else has attempted making this terrain piece and if so we would love to hear all about it and also looking for ideas from the group also about how to go about this and what things you would add into it, any ideas are more than welcome! Thankyou.
But still not all the info I am after although I did find out some new stuff like the Vampires attack with the crown which I found very interesting and will make this campaign evan more interesting as we write it up!
At the moment from all I have heard I am thinking a large roughly rectangular rock in a chamber at the bottom of a mountain. The rock is kind of distorted, maybe has faces or something that can be seen in the rock and the colour would be a dark green that looks black or maybe a black rock with strange green effects on it.
These are just my ideas so far and I am still open to and welcoming any ideas and or information on this subject.
I would make this fairly big, maybe 15cm across and about 20cm high. You could use it as an Arcane Monolith.
Stick some big pieces of bark around a core of polystyrene (or a tube), and fill in any gaps with ready mixed filler. You could stick some wooden spikes in and do some funky daemonic roots made from loads of bits of wire twisted together and textured with filler (make them nice and thick, maybe 1.5cm wide).
Stick it on a nice big scenic base (30-40cm across), so that it blends in a little better with the board.
You might want to have some boulders piled up around 2 sides, to show where infantry models could theoretically get on and off. Or even on all 4 sides and have the roots coming down over them in places, like the tree is clinging to the rock.
I’d also do it like a crater ontop, with a relatively flat core surrounded by a low uneven wall of bark. It would show where it had rotted away over the millenia. You could have some tall spikes of wood in places to show its not just breaking down evenly all over.
With some sizable gaps for minis to skirmish in and out, it could look quite nice.
