Getting ready for WWX & Warzone terrain-tastic!

So I jumped onto a couple of kickstarters back in March/April and the delivery time for the shiny goodness is due real soon!

Both are due in September but if they are delayed its no hassle I've enough bits and bobs to keep me busy in the mean time. Both companies are continuing to tease me with various pictures of the models that are in the works!






I'm sure my models are somewhere in there...





and no I choose not to spend $160 on a train although its really cool!!

So whilst waiting for my new stuff to arrive I've been reading PDF's and mulling over scenery for my own board, I'm going to start with a 4x4 then expand to 6x4 at a later date if the board gets enough use from my gaming group.

rather than planning the table like I did with the bolt action board I'm going to get creative and have some fun!

The "master plan" is to do generic type terrain to start with and then have a few bits that fit the universe that I'm playing so the mdf wild west type buildings and sci-fi buildings spending budget doesn't get out of hand as their is some great stuff out there for a reasonable price as well.

I managed to pick up some railway molds from a local modelzone before it closed down and had a play about with some different flocks and basing materials,

I had some off cuts from the tree bases that I did so simply stuck the cast rocks and splashed some paint on, so before the detailing



and after







this lot will give me enough bits for soft cover and difficult terrain for a variety of games so nice and multifunctional!

At the same time I was working on some warlord buildings for Rob a chap over in sunny Hinckley after he saw what I'd done with the bolt action board ones I got given a bag full of bits and was told to have a play. and this was the result









I'm going to leave the basing to Rob as I'm not sure what his "vision" is for his board but that shouldn't take too long.

The pledge is looking lovely for the year so far...

Bought - 462
Painted - 484
Differance - +22

its gonna take a kicking with the WWX, Warzone, All quiet on the martian front AND deadzone so I need to get ahead as much as possible but I'm going to have to be realistic and admit I might fall into the negative for the first time since starting the pledge, I'll go down painting with a brush in my hand though ;) 

At the moment I'm looking for inspiration with regards to the next thing for the board, any good suggestions out there??
