Finally got around to painting my bag of Games Workshop Moonscape Craters. There's something down the road I might need some crater terrain for and I had nothing else handy.

In addition to notes on my process and whatever comments that came to mind, I offer my humble opinions about the product.

Spoiler: Not a huge fan, but they'll do.

If anybody knows of an alternative product along these lines, please feel free to make a recommendation. I'd appreciate it.

I have a couple of unpainted craters, possibly from the same set. Thanks for sharing your techniques.

You're welcome! GW produced plenty of them, so I'm not surprised that some are floating around in people's collections.

You could try making your own.

Cut some MDF, thick card, corrugated card, what have you to shape and size. Or be lazy and use old CDs.

Twist some paper lengths or cut thick card strips and tape into hoops. Lay hoop on base and tape or glue down.

Use plaster or wood filler, so on, to create the broken, cracked, surface Creater edge and bottom. Or cut sand paper or card to do it and glue them down.

Apply some glue and sand where needed.

Paint, play, so on.

They are basically free, numerous and each is different. You could also add bits from kits to them, bodies, weapons, downed aircraft, so on.

Aluminum Pie Tin and Plaster of Paris works as well.
