Another piece finished for my fallout table...

posted Sep 19, 2017 07:12:46 by richardathome
Hi folks. Here's the latest piece for my Fallout table. Sarissa Precision's Residential Trailer. An MDF, card and perspex kit that's simple to assemble and is just the right size to fill up an odd corner.

Base painted in acrylics and weathered with oils and pigment powders. I have a step by step build log with loads more pictures over on my blog: http://www.richbuilds.com/articles/build-review-sarissa-precisions-residential-trailer-28mm-mdf-wargames-terrain/













And a shot of it on the very much WIP board...



Happy gaming!

Spectacular! I particularly love the moody closeup and indoor shots you took. Also, I appreciate the detailed step-by-step exploration of building the model on your blog.

These are really good! I like the techniques you are using for weathering. I am now inspired, I believe I will order a couple to do myself!

Also, can you talk about how you are doing the board itself?

Hi folks. Thanks for the lovely comments.

The board is a 1/2 sheet of 1/2 inch plywood. I used extruded polystyrene sheet to make the road and pavements, the rest is covered with ready mixed polyfilla & grits of various sizes. I've still got a lot do do: fences, street furniture, etc. as well as finish off some more buildings. It's never 'finished' is it? :-D

@Richard Allsebrook: I think part of what's really compelling about the board itself (aside from the great buildings sitting atop it) is the gradient effect going on, with what looks like darker brown/grey toward the paved areas, moving toward a warmer brown and then gold in the more open areas. It's the sort of thing I generally *avoid* for my own table tiles, since they're supposed to be modular, but works very nicely for what appears to be a more complete board. Also, there's the irregularity of the terrain surface itself, so it's not merely some sand, kitty litter, or flocking glued down on a flat surface.

Anyway, while the project might not be "finished," it looks like you're doing a great job of doing it in increments, whereby even "unfinished," it still makes for a compelling scene.
