From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
I have now completed all 16 desert-theme tablescape boards. Together they make a single 4′ x 4′ table. I will let the images speak for themsevels. I put the tiles on the flat concerete floor of our grage to take these shots. I didn’t use the cnnectors, which is they were are some gaps between boards. Yes, I sewpt the floor first!
The appearance changes with the light. In this second is below, the orange comes through – that orange was not on purpose.
For the last complete shot I brought the camera (okay, my phone) down to shoot across the boards to show the topography.
I wasn’t content to stop there though. I’m pleased with the result and also pleased to have finished a full gaming table! I grabbed a few miniatures from various boxes, drawers, and shelves and created some vignettes.
“According to the map, we are definitely… here.”
“Goblins. Why is it always goblins?”
“We can hold them back, as long as they don’t have a ninja.”
“Whatever we have, we need a bigger one!”
“You lookin’ at me?”
“Arise my skeletal horde… oh wait, he hasn’t painted them yet. Hurry, puny human, hurry!”
Finally, I want to mention the tools I used for this project. I used a different brand of paint, some thick acrylics designed for visual artists who like that medium. They went quite well. Not included in the picture are two 200ml jars of sepia wash from Vallejo and a can in white spray paint, which was used up on the 16 boards.
The boards were inked and painted in an old shoe box. The Liquitex range worked really well for this project, and I expect I will use them in other terrain pieces.
