I have finished my Wizards Tower. It needed a base so I dug out a cardboard Cake base which is sealed on one side and cut it to size. (this had been sitting in my Games room for years awaiting such an occasion). However it had a slight warp in it which only got worse and as the cut edges spread out I decided to use it as a template to cut out a 3mm MDF base. This I had bought in A3 size from the Art shop for a few dollars. When cutting it down I remembered someone on a Forum saying they make their terrain to fit into A4 Paper boxes for storage. I then made sure that this new base was smaller than A4 and grabbed a spare box from work. I also finished the Chimney and painted two Candles and a Torch. I really wanted to add more details inside which I have from Reaper but that would reduce the playing area too much.
|Just smaller than a A4 sheet.|
|Still a few annoying white bits showing through.|
|Small space to fit a Statue on.|
One of the things that had been holding me up on the Berlin board was making debris piles. I grabbed some cut off Foam-core and made a couple of piles which were then covered in filler and spare bits. These came up quite good but I think I will add some Sculptaclay recommended by Lukes APS. I will still use the Foam-core to save some weight though. I think I still need to work on my method of adding grass etc as it looks a bit neat like some gardener had laid it out.
I had some fun this afternoon seeing what other settings the building could be used for.
The terrain that I have for Mordheim at the moment. I have three more of the 4Ground buildings to make up and I need to remove or cover the snow from the GW ruins. I also have a bridge hidden away in a box somewhere for the river crossing.
