Default display board

So, i just bought my wood elf army and decided to do a display board first, more or less to get my theme and colors to match. I dont have tons of time to work on it, so please be paitent with me. I will post as it comes together.

The first step was doing a mock up of where i wanted everyone. Gotta love a sharpie for this. Next, i used a dremel with the router attachment and engraving bit to cave out the base areas.

Well, i got the base slots cut out, a small hill that i may or may not add more to. Possibly a waystone, dunno yet. And the basic shape cut out. 20120518_040953.jpg

Thanks for all thevkind words, and i apoloagise for this taking so long. Lol, next to no days off seem to do that. But either way, i made up some textured paint and got that on my board last night. Cheap pva glue and dollar store paint mixed with some sand from a parking lot and small fish tank rocks.

Looking good so far. You wouldn't reconsider having a slot ontop the hill for some special character? Waystone sounds great by the way, maybe with LED?

Good to be green

I was going to put a waystone or make a giant oak or other tree for the hill. Love the idea of hookin an LED up in the waysrone though. Decisions desicions.
so i got a little more painting done on it, overbrushing mainly cause im lazy, kinda looks crappy at the moment, but will smooth out after i pick out some smaller details.

i think a massive oak coming up from the center with branches over hanging would look really good.
