Do you want to know how to make great looking wargames terrain and model scenery? Would you like to exchange terrain modelling tips and show off your wargaming terrain and other model scenery to a family-oriented community where the emphasis is on encouragement rather than criticism? Here at TerraGenesis, we've been doing all that since 1997.
Please note that although TerraGenesis' emphasis is on wargaming terrain, we have, and welcome, contributions from railroad modellers, diorama builders, dolls' house enthusiasts (especially gardeners), and indeed anybody using related model making techniques.
Since 1997 we've been building a library of terrain making articles.
