Rikk s Bayou Board

Recommended Posts

Ok, back from holiday and have made a list of what I think I’m aiming for on my board, hopefully this is a fair balance of types of terrain for blocking, hazard/severe, etc. etc.

2 shack/buildings (blocking impassable, ht 5) fairly big base size

1 dunny/out house (blocking impassable, ht 5) not too large base size

2 swamp trees (blocking impassable, ht 5) not too large base size

3 swamp reeds (blocking impassable, ht 3) reasonable sized base

3 swamp ponds (severe) reasonable sized base

Symbols of authority (50mm base, but combine onto large base size for combined scenery); pile o crap, pile o loot, pile o moonshine (blocking, ht 5)

1 moonshine still (blocking, impassable, ht 3) reasonable size base

1 pig pen/fenced area (ht 1)

Please could I have some feedback about what I’m missing, too much of anything? Not enough of something to balance out the board? Hazardous? 

 

Many thanks

Update time

Ive broken out the second shack/building, the print out what it looks like is below the mdf

E759483_A_B489_4_D87_8_D3_E_79_E11825_DB

Ive started with the base which was very fragile and I’ve broken bits but will try to make it look authentic

E6_AAF801_E1_FC_4540_8105_C76_E8547_E343

The roof, I’ll do similar style with this as the last one 

CDEFD61_E_C72_B_48_F8_A03_A_298_AF620715

My aim will to finish this building, the last swamp pond and 2-4 reed (screening scenery) by end of August, ready for the actual board to start in September.

Brief update time 

This

186_E52_D4_AD87_4983_B2_B8_473_A697_CBED

has turned into this

635_C6_E6_A_8_D82_4_A9_B_9_C6_C_F2_E9_A3

which you can see the tree is also finished

and apart from rust affect on roof, this price is pretty much done

The roof of the outhouse is finished

E510719_E_69_E2_4_B66_BD49_7_BDB06119930

I have also placed what I’ve made so far on the floor to work out how it sits within a 3’ by 3’ area

I could probably do with some smaller scatter terrain but nervous it’s taking up too much space for the board

Small update, the second shack is coming along though not rapidly. Should have it complete end of weekend.

also received two new buildings in post today

50421_B6_B_7343_4532_8_B27_79487_AB5_E49

same building I’ve used as first shack, will try to make it look a bit different and also a pig pen 

I’m going to need to put a move on if I want to have a board to take to Nationals (which I will submit a form for taking board if I can get two pieces more completed by end of Sept)

Really happy with the scatter terrain I think 4 pieces (3 short 1 long) will be enough for the board. I can always make more later if needed.

Some more progress in the scatter terrain, I think when lined up next to my other terrain the planks are a little on the large size, but meh
