Legion of everblue...

I continued to paint my legions today, assembled the last models and re-did some of the older guys:

Under the Bridge

Today I have done mostly detail work, added vallejos grey pumice to give better structure to the bridge and the rocks, painted them as well as made the roads, stones and riverbanks more realistic and less gray. I also added some more grass around the rocks and the bridge.

I am almost out of water, and I want to pour everything in one go, so I'll have to wait a little for that, in the meantime I put some of vallejos water effect between the board and the piece of plasticard at the end of the river so the model water wont run of the board. I also lightly added some green color to the riverbed.

I want the bridge to work both for 28mm and 15mm scale, so I made it as neutral as I could, thoughts?

I can't do much more now untill I get my hands on some more model water. Off to other projects, I have an army to paint!

Two and a half men

Today I got help with the gameboard not only from my gaming friend, but the neighbour kid also dropped by to lend a hand to the project. Creating a world is not an easy thing to do alone, you know.

We actually came a very long way today, starting with adding trees and making the bridge, then we took a turn to the textile shop for some more pieces of cloth to add to the underside of the boards, nailed it to the boards and wapped everything with duct-tape around the edges.
We also put a piece of plasticard at the end of the river to block the water effect, then we finished todays work on the board by painting everything black that stood up from the edges above the tape.

The picture is in this position just to give a better view of the boards, we don't have weird gravity here yet.

Afterwards we added grass to the bases of those now painted walls and fences from GW I got earlier this week.

Next time it would be time to do something about that bridge, paint the bottom of the river, and add the water, then I think we are quite ready!

More grass!

This week I got my hands on more static grass, as well as a few walls and fences from GW. This evening I placed the last grass and added some small bushes. Tomorrow I'll get some help with the work and I hope we will plant some trees and make the bridge and maybe finish the edges and add a piece of cloth to the underside.

Here are todays picture:

I have also gotten around a project I have pondered about for a while: Making Halo warbands for Song of Blades and Heroes, using some of my Halo Actionclix miniatures. This was fairly simple by just swapping the bases for GW's round 40mm ones and adding grass. I also made gunner swap on the warthog from a spartan to a marine with a small conversion of the arms.

Out of grass!

So, since the last update I have added some styrofoam rocks, painted the boards and begun to add some static grass, at least untill I ran out of it.
Enjoy and behold:
