Just ordered the Citadel Game Board for a game on Friday. Im not the best painter in the world and was wondering the quickest and most effective method of painting this beast?
What equipment will I need?
Then a generous helping of the color you want your board to be in, for the purposes of this post let's say a desert. You will need around 3 separate colors for good results: a brown, mid yellow and bright yellow. You can also get a single color and make it darker or lighter using white and black paint.
Undercoat the board black
Mix up some water and the brown you made and using a largish brush paint the entire board in this color.
Then drybrush with encreasingly lighter colors until you reach bright yellow. Each drybrushing fase should be with lighter colored paint and increasingly smaller amounts of paint on the brush, so that every highlight made in this fashion is both brighter and lighter.
Then go back, if you want, and paint the skulls first in a brown like Graveyard Earth, then bleached bone, then a highlight of white.
Any sorta color can be used, obviously, and if you want some more texture you can always glue on some more sand, gravel, bits from models or grass.

Zema is correct.
THe type of board you want depends on the type of stuff you buy to paint /decorate it.
Snow boards: need snow..and blues and whites for paint..
dirt and grass: browns and yellows and green
wasteland : anything.
hope Zema helped.
Rome wasn't built in a day, Either should good scenery.
Particulaly like the childs head stuck on the end of it.
Im going for a deserty/cratery look I think.
Is the Citadel Spray thing any good?
Looks great, really well done.
How big is that board? Is it the entire thing or just one of the sections?
