praetorian13 Posted December 3, 2010 Report Share Posted December 3, 2010 Greetings Malifauxians. New to the forum. I have not played (YET) but I am a mercenary figure painter and got an order from a fellow to do a faction, then from his cousin as well. As I was doing the minis he saw my website and the scenery and said "Could you do a swamp board for us for a couple hundred bucks?" I love building scenery so I agreed to the challenge! I thought I'd share the process in case it gives anyone else some ideas. First off I discouraged the idea of building a static 3x3 board. After a few games you know all the "sweet spots" and strategies. My instructions were to have him paint a 3x3 board using streaks of an olive green and brown, then top coat it with several layers of clear gloss lacquer. After that I'd build a number of "Islands" from foam about 1.5 inchaes tall. These islands could be moved around to make different formations To connect them I envisioned causeways. Large buildings would have dedicated "Islands. Smaller islands could have any number of things like a campsite or an idol or dangerous terrain (Man eating plants, alligators) a grave yard island, hanging tree, junk piles, even a Soulstone deposit. Some of the items could serve double duty in a ghost town or settlement so would not be affixed to the islands. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
