So, tomorrow I venture forth from Buffalo to go to my third tournament. Today was pretty good, the Sabres have won, and they've just made the playoffs by getting it to overtime. I've finished everything to be ready for the tourny tomorrow, which uses the rules from my previous post.
First up, this is something I just decided to do tomorrow, a carrying and display board for my army. I used a piece of hard board we had laying around and slapped it together after I finished the manticore. The road is plasticard, the walls styrofoam and some ballast and sculpter for various heights. Primed it black this morning and painted it after classes. Lots of pigments used for to make the road look just right. The stripes were masked in and dabbed with yellow so the cover is not even and they look worn. I made a couple little posters for the walls and that's about it. About 5-6 hours of work all told. Not too bad, I'm glad I decided to do this.
I've wanted to build something like this for quite some time, primarily for something to take my pictures on other than a black piece of paper. So, this tournament and the board being available made a great excuse to do this.
