  1. @Franchute really appreciate how much you put into running this years and for chasing us up when we haven’t been in touch. It really has kept me getting paint on minis and seeing everyone’s work has kept me motivated. I would definitely be up for entering next years @Caedrus happy to post in another post if you start one up, but will pledge for Master level at the moment (Have 12 unpainted masters so that is likely my goal next year).
  2. Thanks all, wish I had waited for responses but I got a bit carried away and did this within an hour of posting my last post I will definitely get another put together tomorrow and do zebra pattern on it @bedjy that is a great tutorial for zebra pattern, Will def use that method, thx
  3. @Aa7 Hi, love the terrain pieces, can i ask which colours were used for the blue roofs?
  4. My December pledge I tried wet blending Mah dress and even though I had fun, it was really hard. I’ve only been doing thin glaze layers on the Kentauroi(sp?) and enjoying it immensely even if it is taking hours. I’m unsure about the horse body...should I try to be interesting and do a zebra, tiger, leopard coat...or stick to a nice dark brown mane...?
  5. Hi, going to pull a Mulligan for November, have done loads but none finished.

    Ok, all set up at the Nationals Really pleases with it, though I still have some work to do on it after the weekend

    With 18 hours to go before I need to pack it in the car to take to UK Nationals.... I still need to get all the black painted on the edge of the board and the river is still wet resin..... and I haven’t finished all the planks for the bridges yet... Overall I’m happy but feel it’s missing something

    Not quite on track but not far off, steps 1-4 below and I’m working on step 5 now Ill get the boards done tonight and tomorrow evening I’ll get them onto the board with some tufts and shrubs. Will probably also put a thin layer in the pond and river of water effects just to get it started

    Seriously running out of time for this, esp as need water effect resin setting time of 2-3 days and board needs transporting in 6 days time... I still have to; 1. sand down the side and paint black 2. Sand down lumps on board (I had smooth pollyfilla to join cork boards but felt I need to add more to create texture- but now I wish I hadn’t and will need to sand if down before more coats of paint) 3. 2 more coats of paint on the board 4. Severe highlights on board as it’s just too dark as is 5. planks on board and for river/pond crossing to be built, painted, stuck on board 6. Foliage and tufts to be added 7. Final highlights 8. Water effects 9. Review - potentially to add some grass to the board if overall it’s still too dark I really do need to get to step 4 today and working on the planks this evening to then by end of tomorrow to be onto step 8 with first layer of resin going down. If that goes to plan, I should be finished late Wednesday/Thursday and ready to load in car on Friday.
  10. Hi, I’m planning on completing my gaming board, whisky golem, and then whatever I have motivation to get finished for nub gremlins, possibly Francois and some Bayou gremlins

    Thanks both for the feedback. Taking both comments into account I have dropped the river in the middle but going for one in a corner (giving enough space for corner deployment) and one coming in from the side and a permanent pond Ive run out of PVA and almost out of pollyfilla already. Painting this thing is going to be a pain, plus adding texture....

    Have laid out scenery and then painted a rough idea where I’d put a stream No longer sure about the stream as it takes up a lot of space and limits space for the terrain I’ll get the polyfilla finished and put some cork down and try terrain in different layouts before committing to carving out a stream or not

    I have PVA and tacked the sides on, 36’’ by 36’’ play area will poly filla the gaps tomorrow morning and pencil outline where things will go and where to create a stream. I also need to buy some more cork tiles to raise the inside of the play area and enable deep groove for the stream. This should all be done and dried by Thursday and I can paint it all black and the brown on Friday, leaving me next weekend to paint it all and then 4 days for the stream resin to cure. Wow, that is cutting it close to Nationals.

    Hi, Thanks, I think I’m going to make a small stream in one corner, potentially across the middle, unsure yet. Ill get some paint on the board and redo the terrain with a bit less in deployment and hopefully it will look a bit better. I only have two weeks yesterday to get it done and little one birthday party tomorrow and relatives staying over so this is going to be rushed...

    I’ve picked up the board today. 18mm thick 38’’ by 38’’ and I also have 1’’ wide 18’’ thick strips to go round the outside A bit concerned I may need more terrain making as slightly sparse in places in a quick place of scenery. Too little terrain? Too much? About right?
