Pimp My Board Game

a pursuit of fruitless endeavors and endless refinements

Additional Scenery

I hit a snag with my Test of Honour board in that I couldn’t find all the ingredients to make my own wash locally.  They are now on order but I can’t do much until that package comes in.  I do have some scenery terrain I’d been meaning to paint up and now was as good a time as any.

Board Textures

With the nicer weather this week, I was able to get a little bit more done on my Test of Honour board.  First, I finished up the leveling I was doing for the dojo placement and then I laid everything out to see the progress.

Sweeping Terrain

Over the weekend, I had the chance to start up another terrain project I’ve been thinking about.  This time, it is a large 2′ x 2′ board for my Test of Honour set. I picked up large piece of 8′ x 2′ x 2 inch insulation foam with the intent of making something altogether different but that quickly didn’t pan out.  Switching gears, I decided to try my hand at a full gaming board instead.

When the weather was a bit warmer, I played around with an idea I came across using expanding foam.  Andrew Pieper posted a how-to on making terrain hills from expanding foam insulation spray and it looked easy enough so I decided to give it a go.

Test Of Honour Week: Scatter Terrain And Friend Of Sword-Master

The week is winding down but I have a few final things that were completed just under the wire. The first is one of my first attempts at scatter terrain.  I don’t do a lot of this as I usually buy a scenery piece and paint it up.  This time I wanted to have some bamboo-based terrain and that isn’t easy to outright buy so I had to make my own.

Test Of Honour Week: Bell Of The Ball

I received my new replacement bell for my Test of Honour Temple Bell scenery piece and so I quickly set about fixing it up.

It came with a faux bronzing and while that may be just fine in a color setting, it won’t cut it in my monochrome theme.

Test Of Honour Week: Temple Bell

As I continue through the Test of Honour week, I turn my attention to terrain by building up Sarissa Precision’s Temple Bell.  I’ve always liked this model and have had it sitting in shrink for a while now but was glad to have the chance to open it up.

Test Of Honour Week: Sword-Master

After blitzing through my Ninjas last week for Test of Honour, I dug out the rest of my kits and decided to push through to see if I can wrap this game up. I made great progress this weekend, starting with the Sword-Master figure for my Dojo Assault set.
