Default City of Death- My third board

Hey guys, before you start reading this I want you to know there will be no pics for quite some time as I have yet to buy any supplies, this is just me throwing out some ideas and asking for criticism. I have made two boards before and was always dissapointed because I didn't buy the best materials and half-***ed them. Now, I'm getting serious. I am going to buy 6' by 6' of 2" thick polystyrene and cut it into 2' by 2' blocks so it is easily customizable. Then, I am going to cover the squares with masonite so they look like concrete. Then, paint, then make bases for buildings out of masonite (one per 2' by 2' block) so when I lay them on the board they make up streets and sidewalks. Then, I will buy the imperial sector set (contains 3 small buildings and 1 large one,) a basaliska administratum, a manufacturum, sanctum imperialis, razor wire, and urban barricades and walls from the cities of death set. I was then planning on buying the book too, but I wasn't sure. So wat do ya' guys think?

Well of course if you want to actually use this board at any point, the CoD book is a must.

I would certainly recommending reinforcing your polystyrene sheets in some way, otherwise they'll just disintegrate over time. I advise sticking each of them to a 2'x2' hardboard or MDF or similar base.

You are going to stick it to a wooden board arnt you?

Sounds good, Getting alot of polosyrene is allways good and makes it alot better looking wen its done.

Can you make us like a sketch of how its going to look, Or are you still not sure?

Umm..., about the wood, masonite is a very thin wood material, about a 1/4 of an inch thick, will that be enough?

And about the drawings, I have made some, but it is to late to scan 'em in tonight, so I'll try and get some good blue prints up by tomorrow.

Thanks,

1/4", Hmmmm It might so, But you wont be able to move it about or put much weight on it. My wood is 1/2" and 6X4 and its not even creeked yet, You should be fine as long as you dont move it to much.

Get those drawings on here, Itll be easy for us to know what your trying to do then.

Kool, I might still put it on wood anyways or make a wood frame for the board to prevent chipping.

Since I'm a student I got a ton of AP homework so it will be till late tonight until I get those pics up.
