New Game Board In Progress




I'm almost done making a new Game Board for myself.
Here's 2 pics taken from my Iphone over the weekend.




Saturday Painting:
Basic acrylic gray house paint laid down with grit in it.
Then assorted gray, green, yellow and rust colored paints sprayed to break up the gray base color.





Sunday Painting:
The entire board was drybrushed with the base color to break up the spray paint.

Several coats of green weathering pigment mixed with water were laid down to get a base mossy look.

Assorted browns were airbrushed along the rock face to achieve a striation look in the bedrock. The craters were shadowed and the dried river bed was accentuated with greens and browns.



The next step is to continue detailing the craters, fix a few of the striations I'm not happy with, clear coat it and add some grass. Hopefully it'll be done by the end of next week.

  1. That's looking fantastic! Are those 2'x4' sections? Can't wait to see it all finished - I keep going back and forth about making sectional game boards for my own table. Storage is the issue though, I already have so much terrain, I'm not sure that I can justify adding another huge stack of sectional baseplates...

  3. Thanks guys!

    @Moridian7th, Yeah those are 2'x4' sections.
    I have limited space in my house and very narrow stairwells, so it was the best option for storage and transportation.

  5. Thanks Man.

    The Board itself is mainly layers of blue foam.

    The dried river bed is foam, light weight spackle and GW craters
