Wow, it's been a while since I posted anything on here. Not by choice mind you, but blogger seems to be playing silly buggers with images hosted at Photobucket.


Anyhoos, here's what I've been up to lately. I won a set of home-made game boards on Trademe (NZ's version of e(vil)-bay) for NZ$50. Total bargain, especially as it also included a Fortified Manor, Arcane Ruins, the Citadel Woods and two sets of the the walls and fences which alone are about NZ$320. All I had to do was a 500km round trip (to Kerikeri) to pick them up, so two weekends ago I made the trip.


And here's what the boards I won looked like. Not too bad I suppose. Each of the six segments is about 60 x 80cm (2 foor x 3 foot).




However green paint really doesn't agree with me for the plains of Nordland, so with the aid of a lot of brown acrylic paint, some beach sand and a lot of flock I've been turning them into this:





I have just finished the fourth board which is enough to cover 90% of my dining table, so I won't be able to fit more on there but I will finish the rest of them off to give me some variety in terrain.

That's a really good score! They do look much better with the work you have done.
