End Of The Era (Boards)

I had already done some work on my boards for Era: Medieval Age by creating custom peg boards for the buildings. I had even done work to liven up the drab yellow boards but only with one. I wanted to try something different and easier so I took out the last three boards and got to work.

Because my photos are in order, it’s easiest to just go through things each day.
