Secret Weapon Tablescapes

I backed the kickstarter way-back-when and receive 3 themes for a total of two 4x6 foot tables. The tiles themselves are great, the clip together really nicely and are a joy to paint. And dice don't even bounce all over the place on them... I pulled some from each and got to work painting them up. I based them with a flat dark brown spray, then drybrushed them with Calthan brown (custom mixed gallon), a medium brown and lighter brown and then an ivory (hooray craft paint). I painted all the details and got the scrap piles nice and rusty, before everything got a nice ivory drybrush to make it look all dusty to blend it into the terrain. before flock, I painted on a solid coat of an acrylic varnish followed by Army Painter matte sealer. Indestructible. I had a tile fall on other tiles from 3 feet up and there wasn't even a hint of damage. So these should withstand years of gaming without need for touchups. After that, I added 5 layer of fine turf flock and 2 more on top of that of a coarser flock. PICTURES!

  3. Looking good. I've got two of each rolling hill and scrapyard sitting in boxes waiting for the time. So much detail on these things would love to see some models on there.

    1. Same as the rest of the board sections. The piles of rubble received a final dry brush of white at the end, and they all got a tiny bit of flock here or there.
