Sold Out!

The Solent 40,000 Challenge is now sold out!

At maximum capacity all 40 places have gone, so now its time to gear up and get ready for gaming. There are representatives from the Brighton Warlords, Solent Wargamers, Spiky Club, Southampton Strike Force and the X Legion. So whilst you the player ponder the meta game between these gaming groups I'll be busy building the boards for you to play on.

As each board is built I'll post pics of the layouts on this blog so you can get a feel for what your in for!

Jungle Board, The Finishing Touches

With the board in its current state your only about an hour from finishing!

Use a little ochre paint to drybrush the surface. For the best results use the brush in circular motions, this will avoid the streaky finish then will if use the brush in straight lines. Dont worry if some areas are thicker than others, the next step will sort this out.

Blob patches of normal PVA glue over the board, the more random the better. Take your favourite scatter liberally apply over the glued areas, in this case old GW flock. Flock is more hard wearing than static grass as it can be sealed with a little watered down glue. Also adds some variety to all the other boards.
Finished, ready to play on!

Jungle Board 3

With the texture applied and left to dry, at least 24 hours, brush off any lose sand in preperation for painting.
The easiest way to get paint for boards, Ginger Glow is a spot on match to Bestial Brown. This pot from B&Q has done five boards and is still half full.

Then simply use a large brush to work the paint into the board!
