So with Goblin month underway, we're going to spend much of our time working on terrain (in rapid preparation for the Hunter's Red October tournament). The focus of this post will be to provide an update on the various terrain projects I have in the works and show the new base job for the army.
1) Base-coating rocky terrain
We have a real board now! Gone are the days of meat paper on cardboard, welcome the real stuff! I picked up five sheets of 3/4" polystyrene foam board from a hardware store, soon to be touched up with some grey spray paint primer (not spray paint, as it attacks the polystyrene). The board will contain four modular sections which measure 24" x 24", allowing for various terrain configurations. I'm planning on taking my wife's hair dryer to a part of two sections to make what could be a chasm, river, or a ditch, depending what the players in the game want to do.
The additional segment I picked up from the store will be turned into several Dwarf hall town squares, pillars, shops, and statues - all modular. Going underground is going to be so much fun now! Coming up in the next few posts will be continued work on the board as well as finishing the bases for the tunnel terrain pieces, so watch this space!
