Seeing as that moving has decimated my imperial sector buildings for my old board, I have been planning a new one.
I have decided for a sand-swept, war-torn city that has been heavily entrenched.
So, for the buildings, I would assemble them as I normally would, but without the floors or bottom levels. You will see the reason for this below, as well as saving me some parts. Basically, they would just be the top half of large buildings, closer to realistic ones than the relatively small ones you would normally see.
As for the ground, I have been kicking around the idea of spraying that expanding insulation foam into a box. Then before it dries, I would flatten it out, then stick my building chunks in just before it dries. This would achieve that partially buried city look, and, at the same time, keep them from falling over or warping, and generally falling apart, which seemed to be problematic of my old board. The dried foam would then be carve-able, allowing me to carve trenches or whatever else I might want to.
I'm thinking this would work nicely, but I just wanted some opinions on it. I may start a project thread once I've fully decided and got my supplies together.
Do it It will be awesome, and if its not, do it again
I really like this idea. Let us know how it turns out because i might steal it when i go to start my own board in the next few months (once i move into an actual house and have the space). The use of the foam really seems like a brilliant idea, hopefully it works out.
