Default City Board Journal

Hello and welcome to my City Board Journal! Here i will post the progress of making a City Board. It will be based in journal entries as I finish working on it.

NOTE: This board is NOT for city fight, it is just a city board for easy play with a max of 1500 points (Thats streching it) each. But you can use the basics of this to make a City Fight board.

Now sit back and enjoy, if you have any questions/comments/tips or trick feel free to ask/tell.

Day 1 : 2-18-06 : The Planning

Planning and the thread has started today. I have come up with a basic layout of the board.

The wood will be bought tommarow, and most likly painted with the fleck stone paint. I'm going to try and get a charcoal black paint if I can. I think I will give the edges a small bevel to make it smoother and more profesional.

End of first entry.

How big are the ruins going to be?

If its going to be the small games workshop ruins then it wont be as good as making a 50 cm foamboard ruin.

Yeah, i'm not really planing on using the GW ones, just making some from the GW Cityfight Website.

Day Two : 2-19-06 : The Materials

I got a board, but since i would save so much money, i just bought a 2x4 board, nice size for about 1000 points. I have also replaced the textured spray paint with basic playground sand, sprayed black. I'll give it a light drybrush of grey, but not to much so it looks like asphalt. Pictures will come tommarow (I hope).

Just incase.... dont spray polostyreen, you probably know it allready but im just making sure.

What are you going to have on your board (the small bits) other than the buildings and ruins and what type of ruins are they going to be? (the boaring ones or is it an acid plant or somthing)

2 X 4 is extremly small, well small for most people anyway so i would say get another 2 X 4 and add them together.

200th post ;D

Well right now, none my friend either don't have models, or have very little (1000 or 500) so I just want a nice board to play on.

Right now I'm working on the little cover that will be in the streets. So far I have a broken battle suit, and some clutter I found in my basement. Nothing is going to be attached to the board, so i can change it when needed.
