I started with a white board 600mm x 400mm, I sprayed the frame black then put masking tape over it for easy removal at the end. Then I added 10mm extruded foam. (blue) First an entire sheet lightly carved around the edges then stacked up to 4 sheets high at the back of the board. I carved hills and added a couple of little caves. Then cut a river, waterfall and pond into it.
Next up I covered it in Vallejo Dark Earth texture paint, then added the ruins, tent and all the other props, then left it over night to dry.
Once dried I highlighted it with a lighter shade then added the icicles, waterfall, river and pond. I combined water effects with Uhu glue and this has given it a nice frosty look. Also below you can see the drunken dwarf with his loyal dog and a cosy campfire. (it's wired up and glows, so I had to learn basic electronics too!)
Finally I added the snow, I used woodland scenics snowshaker all over, (Using Elmers clear school glue) then mixed the glue with the snow about 50/50 to make the sludgy snow which I applied to sections of the board. I've been using this technique for a few years and it retains it's whiteness really well. (the snow panthers below were painted and based three years ago.
So there we have it, I hope you enjoyed seeing my army on it's new board, I'm looking forward to giving the pussies a run out at CoK this weekend!
