Slow but steady progress.

I decided that I won´t build any more hexes before I have finished and painted the ones that are currently under construction. That way I can finally see how this whole system works and looks alike. For this reason I glued sand all over the place and used my high-tech cobblestone applicator to but the sand just right to get the seam of the hexes as invisible as possible.

The seams looked alright. Of course there are places where the edge of the hex is visible but I´m ok with that. Here is a shot with some miniatures for scale. From the left: LOTR ranger, Dr. Arkadius and Kromac from Privateer Press. Those trees will make this scene pop up really good!

It´s funny how little things can spark a whole bunch of ideas and HUGE motivation for terrain projects. I saw an screenshot from a game I don´t remember and there were huge trees which had taken over an ancient city. Immediately I had an epiphany about my harbor town, not just on one hex but the whole town and it´s surroundings. I had been waiting something like this and I quickly doodled my ideas to my trusted Note 10.1. After this I decided to make a little test-run with the trees on one hex before launching full on Tree attack upon my town!

After the metal wires it was time to add some Milliput.

My plan is to make even the smallest trees so high that normal figure can be placed underneath them. That´s why I made the metal wires and glued Woodland Scenic´s chopped up tree bases on top of them. After the puddy I could just plug the trees on and take them of for storage. These will be nice!

The trees were my first idea and the second is called "heavenly roads" which is still on planning stage but nailed my problem about the hexes outside of the town. If I can pull this idea off, it will be sweet but knowing my work schedule, it can take some time!

Cast a Way!

I have had hard time to remember to take my camera with me to take some good photos of the miniatures of the Zombicide, so sorry no pics yet!

 That doesn´t mean that I haven´t worked on anything, quite the opposite. I have relighten my passion for the hexboard and I tackled the big project to fill all the blank spots where there is only cobblestones. That means a lot of casting and a lot of glueing.

I use plaster and plastic when I cast because the cornerstones need to be strong to handle all of the future misuse.

I also tried how the finished surface would look and added some sand on one of the hexes.

Paint, some flock and growth and I think that these will work quite well!!
