City Square Board on foamcore

Recommended Posts

So I salvaged this bit of 16×20 particle board from a broken picture frame. I'll be using some of my foam core to make a city square/crossroads board with my foam rollers. Something for city games that isn't too time consuming, but is also good for a wide spread of genres with the proper buildings and scatter

The tough part will be steaming off the paper and cutting down the various bits for rolling.

So that was easier than planned. About 5 minutes all told?

Do I get a prize?

Hopefully you can see the path. Will add 1 in on each interior corner to make a 4x4 square.

Things have been drying for 4 hours. 1 side is hanging over and I'll need to trim it flush. There's some gaps, and I think I'll give them a quick caulk so that stuff can dry all morning. That'll be close to 24 hours for a modgepodge & black craft paint sealer coat. Then I'll be able to base coat and dry brush over the weekend.

I suppose this is more of am intersection than a square... but. Reminder for next time - have pins handy to close up those seams.

The cat woke me up early. Things have been caulked. Not sure how visible it is. Was a bit difficult to clean off the rolled surface. 6 hours until water contact 24 until cure so I'll wait. The black lines are pencil, not gaps.

I'm not in the mood for the various steps.  Things need to sit then I'll do a grey and brown wash. Then highlight with grey and tan, maybe a little green for the flag stone. Drybrushing this much is a pain.

      Lost colony: spaceship Graveyard is the ultimate starship wreckage system. It's all about customisation, fallen spacecraft and the fragments they leave behind.
      This modular, 3D printable terrain is the second Kickstarter from Saucermen Studios and is even bigger and more diverse than the last. As stretch goals unlock, over 210 models become available to help you build incredibly detailed and tightly packed skirmish tables or larger, sprawling battlefields.
       
      The huge core set of 80+ interlocking spaceship wreckage parts is delivered as stl files. It features incredibly detailed, double sided hull plates with internal features, computer terminals, piping, machinery, airlocks, windows, rooftops, debris sections as well as attachable ship featuressuch as boosters, engines, landing gears, weaponry and hi-tech gadgetry such as sensor arrays.

      i stumbled across this neat article on social media. It seems doable enough - balsa, hydrogen peroxide +sun light, and marine epoxy?
      Not huge application, but I suppose it would allow glass skyscrapers, greenhouses, and... mostly windows? Will post if I try. Please share if you try.

      I struggled with this for a year but really learned a lot about blending and lighting by working on this.

      I've been working on a hugely modular spaceship wreckage system. The base set has 60+ parts but the entire project includes over 150 models.
