Greetings Heretics. I return with news from the field. My madness idea of a Game board has spread. I thought to myself, why have one board, when I could have three!
I have brought myself a 6*4 board and sprayed both sides with Plasti-kote stone effect textured paint (much finer than basing with sand)
I plan on having one side grey for my city terrain and the other a desert board. The third board will be achieved by covering the timber with my citadel gaming mat and various green terrain pieces.
I've began early work on desert tiles.
my desert board will be an abandoned imperial World that is being fought over by the tau empire (gives me a use for all the tau bits i have that will never be used in an army lol)
Here are some WIP shots:
Abandoned imperial building:
The white stuff is Das putty which represents the mounds of sand that build up due to the winds. It will also be textured with plasti-kote.
Next up is a crisis graveyard. Here is where a squad of crisis suits made their last stand against the might of the Imperium, as you can see, they didn't do well lol
Next is a filler tile with an exhaust that leads to a subterranean manufactorum, some palm trees and tau wreckage.
Next up are the ruins of another imperial building. Here lie the remains of a fire warrior and another crisis suit, slain by the imperium.
Lastly we have a wrecked devilfish, shot down by Cadian Hydras as it transports a squad of fire warriors (their bodies have yet to be added)
Obviously these pieces are in the very early stages, but so far I'm very pleased with them and think they will look great when they are done. I'd love to hear your thoughts though
