Finally, some sunny weather arrived this weekend in Melbourne and has allowed me to complete some more sci-fi terrain. A couple of posts ago I had a photo of the terrain setup on my normal sci-fi tabletop. This highlighted the need for some paved areas to cover up any areas of green on the tabletop. I don't mind some green in an urban setting, but it was too much for my tastes.
I already had some roads which I always planned to use. So this weekend I made up 18 paved areas of different sizes, and also finished off a nice big blue storage tank made from a coffee container.
I created the paved areas, as I have with most of the terrain, using photos of my existing terrain or screenshots of Warhammer 40K products and reworking them on Google Slides. Before printing and sticking them to the board I am using (see here for more detail on the process).

|A chalk pastel is used to add some colour.|
|The chalk pastel is rubbed over to even out the colour.|
|A bit of blue pastel was also added, I am trying to get different tones of grey in the terrain. I will often add a rust colour on the corners and on some paved areas yellow and black hazard markings were added.|
