Default Red Planet Citadel Realm of Battle Board

After many months and not a small amount of disaster and repair I finally finished my red planet Citadel Realm of Battle Board.

Of course with quite a few rumours suggesting Ad-Mech are on the way hopefully we'll see more Red Planet boards cropping up.

In case you're interested the process was a texture spray first [which may have been a mistake as I'm not sure it stuck to the plastic as much as I'd hoped] then Red Oxide primer. Shadow washes with black emulsion, PVA and water. Then drybrushed highlights with cheap Vermilion art acrylic, then mixed with a 'Pumpkin' coloured Craft Acrylic for further highlights. Finally a splatter of Bonewhite for added detail.

The varnish was a nightmare - it failed and I had to go back to the shadow wash and re-highlight but the new Winsor & Newton varnish did the trick. Add in the Gale Force 9 yellow flock and the boards are done.


You can see plenty more pictures of the finished article here:

There are loads of WiP blog posts here, should you feel inclined to see how it was done:

Baal would be proud!

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Absolutely beautiful. Gives great inspiration for when I finally get around to ordering the Realm of Battle boards. Plus they Mars theme makes it feel new and different without having one scratch built.
