    lots of sand, rocks and hills, very little vegetation, and perhaps a skeleton or two lying around.

    Use lots of browns and yellowish colors. Maybe a small oasis would be nice too.

    what color should the sand be? I ask because its a slaaneh daemon world.

    an oasis is a good idea, I can see it now, an oasis of blood

    keep it a sandy colour , if its any other colour it wont really look like sand ( to the un-imaginative eye ) but if you want it probably would be a blackish brownin colour like scorched brown , have some slaanesh symbols painted on some rocks in the blood of the corpses that surrond it , it should look cool .

    I based my 4x8 city fight board with sand (but painted mine black) and it worked out REALLY well.


    Get a whole lot of PVC (elmer&#39;s type) glue and water it down a bit so it paints on easily but wont dry too fast. (mix it up in a bowl)

    Baste your board with a healthy coat of the watered down glue and then sprinkle sand over the entire glue painted surface. Dont be afraid to over sand, cause you want as much to dry to the glue as possible, and you will shake off the excess later.

    If you dont like the natural color of the sand (which looked fine for a normal planet&#39;s desert):

    The sand took a lot of paint, so find a cheap spray paint color that you like, or get a Home Depot type place to mix you up a quart of flat latex house paint (they have 100s of shades and colors to choose from).

    All together price wise:
    1 gallon of Elmer&#39;s Glue (more expensive cause i bought the brand name) &#036;18
    50 pound bag of play sand &#036;5
    4 or 5 cans of flat black primer @ 99cents a can
    4 cheap paint brushes (that you dont mind ruining) for about &#036;5

    and we did it all in a day (had to leave it in the sun for awhile to dry and painted it later that night) It dried hard as a rock and its awesome. If you deicde to get the quart of paint instead of the spray cans, it costs about &#036;8 for them to mix you whatever color you pick out and you get way more paint that you will ever use.

    EDIT: Quick thought, got an idea from one of the above posts. Maybe if you painted the sand black and then drybrushed it with a dark brown color. Just some ideas...

    Yeah&#33; I saw a board that had a pool of toxic goo with a guy that melted trying to claw his way out of it, looked awesome.

    The dead guy was made out of necron bits, or maybe skeletons from warhammer fantasy?

    well my desert table is fairly simple. its coverd with joint compount, sprinkle sand let dry. prime white, paint vomit brown (lots if it&#33 drybrush elf flesh and thne lightly drybrush bleached bone and your done. now for an oasis of blood?

    cut out the shape u want it out of cardboard
    shmear spakle all over it and pile it up in the middle and make a crater for you blood.
    next u can do 1 of 2 things, either get a knife and draw some blood :lol: or get red dye. get a hot glue gun and start filling up the hole with hot glue and red dye after the joint compund is dry(do it at the same time, pour squirt, pour squirt, repeat). it should coe otu nice and bloody&#33;&#33;&#33; then paint the sand like i sad then drybrush red for splattering effect&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33;

    A really good material for sculpting desert rock formations is the green floral foam you can find in most craft stores, especially ones that sell fake flowers. It&#39;s easy to carve with only your fingers and makes great sandstone or wind-worn formations. Once in the shape you want, give it two coats of white house primer (cheap stuff, about &#036;10 a gallon), and it will dry in a hard candy shell. Then you can paint it as you please. The primer fills some of the voids and leaves a texture that is almost exactly like sandstone.

    I glued sand on the flat areas using the same method GuardinGnome uses, and gave it all a wash of thinned brown paint.
