I have been experimenting with some different ways to make terrain for the Iron Kingdoms and I naturally came to bricks. A lot of the photographs in the rulebook for Warmachine show brick buildings as do the illustrations. I found a load of articles on how to make bricks but the best I have found is this one. This guy makes amazing stuff. You just need to scroll down a lot to get to the slightly confusing tutorial. I am working on a tower at the moment but once I get that finished I am moving on to something with bricks. A friend of mine did a nice jail and I might do something similar.
The bricks you see above are what I managed without trying too hard. I want to emulate the bricks in the picture here. They have a nice texture that would be pretty effective on a small terrain piece. Of course I would like to weather them a bit more but that might be stretching too far. I used some 5mm thick foam card and a 'stamp' to imprint the brick texture. I noticed that if I press too hard I seem to be ripping the foam. However if I don't press hard enough to get the brick imprint in deep it just doesn't get the 3d effect I want. Maybe the stamp edges are too dull? I used an old cheap paint brush as was suggested in the guide above. More experimentation is needed I think!
