At the local GW (newbury, UK) we're having a christmas eve party, with special games from the manager -
40K extreme beach volleyball
(I posted a question about the rules for these games in the rules discussion forum).
We already have a nice snow board for the snowballing (and i've been painting 20 hobbits for it!) and someone's little brother has a WWE wrestling ring that we're going to 'borrow' - but obviously no-one had a miniature beach volleyball court! Seeing as everyone was getting excited and buying massive ogre and varghulf models for the wrestling and I had just finished painting a shaggoth and so wasn't really doing anything I volunteered to build the court!
This is my first proper piece of terrain that i've attempted other than messing around with bits on cardboard bases sometimes so go easy :-P
2' by 4' hardboard 1/2 inch thick
Dowel (can't remember the diameter right now) = 2x 9 inch long sections
lots of sand
darker yellow paint
lighter yellow paint
section of netting from christmas tree (any kind of netting would suffice)
procured hardboard and cut to size with powertools.
bought dowel and drilled out extremely tight fitting holes in hardboard - go in with a light touch from a mallet, but are removable.
Tomorrow I will be buying sand, and applying it to the hardboard wih slightly watered down PVA, and then adding another layer a few hours later. I want to ultimately get at least 3 layers down as its supposed to be a beach. I will be updating this thread everyday through to completion - and I'll be taking photos tomorrow as well I'll see if i can nab the rules from the GW manager on the 24th to post here too
questions: What type of sand should i be using tomorrow?
How watered down shoudl the PVA be?
what kind of time do I need to leave it between adding additional layers?
what type of paint should I be using (wall, masonary etc?)
would it be better to paint in the court lines in white, or stake them out in red string like professional ones?
