Thought I would share some of my madness with you guys, today I started working on a beach landing board, done in sections for storage and also for easier transport to and from one of the local clubs here in Goulburn.
Rounding figures up I have spent $90 on the Mdf, some bracing and the insulation foam. PVA glue and some textured paint I already have from other projects.
The only other thing I will be purchasing is some caulk to create waves, and some flock both of these will cost an extra $20 at a guess (cheap ebay sellers FTW).
Tomorrow I will build up the internals of the trenches with half width paddle pop sticks that I have left over from my USMC display board. Also fill in some gaps between wood and foam with some gap filler.
Then everything will get texture paint, except the ocean sections. They will get some caulking done later in the week.
The roof is finished on the Old Crow. Next up windows, then paint.
Terrain. This set of walls gives my terrain set, small pieces that accent the larger pieces giving low areas of obstruction and cover around the battlefield. They are separate from the bigger pieces to allow them to have flexibility from games to game. I used the balcony sections from the Games Workshop modular terrain with lots of rubble and plants. I especially like the door that has been hastily laid across a breach best seen on the left side of the first picture.
Themed terrain. all these terrain pieces came together to have a strong industrial feel. This was helped by the very cool steam train bits that i was able to use. The long pieces of pipe on several of the pieces provide low cover and help stretch the pieces horizontally across the board. While most of the terrain is low, the double small building and the last piece offer some interesting height variation.
A few more minis to fill the village.

Also, a Reaper water bearer from their Zodiac series, and another towsfolk with a broom. The Reaper townsfolk are a joy to paint, lots of character, without being too fiddly.
