Wargame Wednesday: Menoth Display Board, Now With More Miniatures!

I know it’s not Wednesday but I forgot to post a better shot of the display board. The board matches my army perfectly and I’m satisfied with the outcome. The pictures below were taken at Otaku Recon.

Wargame Wednesdays: Protectorate of Menoth Display Board

After months of sitting on my shelf, my Protectorate of Menoth display board is finally finished. I have learned a lot on this project and my terrain building skills have increased. Now, I need to build more terrain. I used my cell phone to take these pictures, but I will set up the light box and take better shots later. Also, I will be using this board during Otaku Recon. I will post some recap pictures as well.

Added some gesso to the board as a primer. I prefer a spray primer but it dissolves the foam. I’ve used gesso before but I diluted it too much. It wasn’t as opaque as I would like but it will do.

Started base coating with a yellow brown for the walls and a dark umber for the sand.

Sorry for the grainy picture. I dry brushed the sand with progressively lighter browns and shaded using a dark umber wash. The walls were shaded with the same dark umber wash, and highlight using the same colors. I’ve painted the gate/door but it’s not shown. I also painted the exposed pink foam black and added some flock. I will take better pictures over the weekend.

If you have any comments or questions, feel free to message me or leave them at the bottom.

Wargaming Wednesdays: Display Board WIP

I’ve been putting off my Protectorate of Menoth display board for awhile now, but with Otaku Recon just around the corner I figured it’s time to finish the board. So far I’ve glued some gravel in the gaps and glued some sand onto the pink foam. I should have cleaned the sand before gluing since some plant particles were still in the sand. After the glue dried, I started sealing the sand with some watered down glue. Next up, I need to add some gesso. The gesso will act as a primer since spray primer will dissolve the pink foam. Check out next week for the completion of this project.
