Hi guys – I just thought I would throw up some pics of a
mini terrain project I have been working on.
A few months back I entered a Kill Team tournament at my
local club and they awarded additional tournament points for bringing along
some terrain to play with (the club has their own terrain, but not really
enough for the amount required for a Kill Team tournament). Points were also
awarded for bringing cake/goodies…both very good ideas IMO…
I’ve had an idea for an IW themed game board for a while
now; trenches and temporary bunkers running across half of the board and the
edges of a fortification that is being battered. I could make it but I have two
problems right now; a) I have no room in my house to store it without it being
damaged and b) I don’t actually play at my house… I thought I would use this opportunity
to test out making some trenches and battlefield debris.
It was all made very basically; some wooden boards for bases
and polystyrene shaped with a jr. hacksaw blade (I don’t have a polystyrene
cutter and its better than using Stanley/scalpel blades). It was then sealed
with PVA, rocks/walls coated in all-purpose-filler and sand added. I used balsa
to make the planks in the trenches, old sprue for spikes and random spares I
had lying around.
They were finally painted up to match my IW bases. Overall I am pretty happy with how they turned out and now I
just wish I had the room to make a full sized board.
