Nothing finished as yet. I just could not get up the shed yesterday to do anything. I can hear you all playing very tiny violins! So at present this is unfinished.
My Sci fi "Moon Boards had suffered due to a number of reasons. So I decided to update them.
each board as long term readers will already know is 2' by 4'. So they are not all that small and yield a 4' square area.
If you are a new reader you will not have seen them as I do not use them very much which I thought was a shame.
2 coats on both boards. But still I was not happy. They needed to be darker and show a greater level of contrast.
So on the Bank holiday Monday I went to the local DIY store and promptly bought the wrong shade! It is of course too dark!
Consiquently I repainted the boards again, only to realise when they dried. that they were too dark. Woops
So the dry brushing started! I added about equal amounts of cream paint to the brown and applied the first coat.
So yesterday I applied (despite the thunder storms) a lighter dry brush. And it has made a difference the boards have improved again.
I am now happy with the boards. Does That mean I am finished.... of course not! But I am currently on a pause
I have started 4 extra craters 3 hills ( a large a medium and you guessed it, a small) as well as 3 rock spires. As well as some blue crystal areas. Additionally I have given thoughts to what buildings might be like. Do not tell me that this or that company make good buildings. While I am sure they do I want something less generic that every player has and having a degree in Architecture I feel I can design some buildings that will be more appealing to the terrain. I already have ideas and will attempt to bring the ideas to fruition. in the next few weeks or months. So say nothing about buildings as what suits us in this century may not on a different world in the next.
Additionally I shall restart my 15mm sci fi. Which I have always loved but just could not play at a club level due to any number of reasons, until lately! The next stage for me is to repaint the bases of the figures I already have to match this terrain. I did look at repainting all the figures as well but have decided to compromise and just do the bases as it will be quicker.
So as far as I am concerned 15mm Sci Fi is a GO! once more
