  1. Dear diary, I have not been working on my quarantine table this month. But I did make a present for my wife's birthday, does it count as terrain building...? On a quarantine game board update, we had our first game on the board (in it's non finished state). It had a real street skirmish feel with models ducking in and out of doorways hugging the sides of the streets for cover. I had always planned on using scatter terrain to block LoS down the roads and this became very evident with long sight lines. But, the back alley ways provided lots of cover for sneaky scheme runners which added some interest to the game. Over all it was a lot of fun to play on, and with some tweaking is a great board.
  2. Folding table hinges

    I'm assuming you want something like this - a Card table side hinge: I've never used them, so can't comment on how good they are, card table hardware usually isn't very robust for heavy weights.
  3. Um, to be perfectly honest, I hadn’t really considered how to get the the other floors. I guess ladders will be the way to go, or maybe some strategically placed rubble and crates.
  4. The three (non-road) sections are removable so that they can be swapped out to vary the layout. I have intentions of doing just plain inserts that will give a flat empty board that can have various scatter pieces added. This was just meant to be a set 'show' layout but I also wanted the houses to be removable for easier storage. @emiba I'll try and get a closer image, The weathering is just a mixture of different acrylic paints heavily watered down and applied randomly. Not really much method to it. The scattered bricks still need to be painted to match the buildings. They stand out a lot more in the photos but white bricks are just a bit to un natural.
  5. I think an update is well overdue. it's time to start adding some groundwork to the boards, gravel and weathering in progress Weathering of the floor boards Completed ground work Test fit of buildings (with basic undercoats of colour)
  6. @Paddywhack A 360 view of each table edge: There's still a few open areas that can be filled with some scatter terrain (rubble piles, crates etc) as well as there will need to be some additional scatter to block the obvious sight lines down the roads. The doors of the warehouses help a little. And finally, the floorboards get laid onto the rubble. Just needs some paint and weathering
  7. So I guess Id better get started on the last section of the board... Any guesses what it could be? I'll put the answer at the end of this post. Additionally I decided to test how the ground floor rubble would look. It still needs some floor boards on those joists, but it's looking good. And now for your answer: Train service shed.
  8. Seems like forever since I was able to work on the board. A few updates: Current status of the table... Construction on the warehouse doors begins I had to make a slight change in direction in regards to the flooring. Originally I was just going to have the buildings free standing, but as they lack any real mass and the terrain is prone to being bumped by hands reaching for models they needed to be more solid. To facilitate this the bases have been magnetised and to give them more of a sense of 'belonging' a new sub floor has been added directly to the board. This will continue to have rubble and floor boards added to it. Finally so close-ups of the details as they sit primed ready for painting and weathering. Suitably shadow figure luring in the alley ways.
  9. Spring is here and that means it's time to prepare for the Australian Malifaux Nationals at Cancon 2018. The Australian Malifaux Nationals is an annual event held during CanCon in the wonderful city of Canberra. It is Australia's (2nd) largest and most diverse tournament in Australia and is a great chance to test your skill against a broad range of players from all around the country. The Nationals are for both beginner and experienced players alike.

If you provide them your mobile number they will ring you until you cave-in and agree to go drinking. CanCon troubles: If you have any problems with ticketing or the broader Cancon venue, contact Tim - cgsinc@tpg.com.au Entry fee: $60 for two days ($50 for one day, or just an additional $10 if you are already playing in another tournament.) Player pack: http://malifauxcanberra.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/Malifaux-Nationals-2018-player-pack.pdf Ticket available from (TBA): http://www.cgs.asn.au/cancon/tournament/ Don't Miss Out!!! A gentle reminder, ticket sales for Cancon 2017 ended abruptly with many players missing out on a chance to join in. So a word of caution, if your thinking of coming along don't hesitate too long. If you have any questions or would like more information, don't hesitate to get in contact.
  10. Building my own stuff

    I found this article helpful: http://www.barrule.com/blog/what-is-scenery-scale-and-how-big-should-my-doors-be/ my general texchnique is to make a mock up out of cheap cardboard and test a few minis against it to see if it looks right.
  11. Don't mind at all, it's just the hairspray chipping technique. Undercoat with a dark color then hairspray, then the top coat.
  12. Just a little bit of a delay in updates, it's been a slow couple of weeks for terrain building, but... first draft of the warehouse doors with working hinges. I'm not sure if I will make it a single door or double. The single door will make more LoS blocking terrain when it's open on the street so that is my preference for the moment. Fences painted up and weathered. I skipped a step compared to the last ones and the weathering has turned out a bit different. I think I prefer the first ones I've also discovered that lighter paint has a better effect than dark.
  13. More fences being constructed
