    It looks good, but isn't this a bit of a shameless plug? Joining up just to post it.....not sure if it's even allowed.....

    Umm, its a forum and he can post what he likes within the rules.

    Nice table, I think a few extra shades of flock around the pathes you have would be good as well as a little dry brushing. Keep up the good work.

    Yes - Damn him for joining up and sharing hobby related content! Damn him to hell!




    The board looks great. Always prefered building modular boards like yours myself - makes storage problems so much easier. I especially like the trees - they look great, my one concern with them is that with all the leaves and branches up on top, they do a very poor job of blocking line of sight, so your board looks fairly friendly to an all out shootyfest. Then again, with all the modular terrainpieces, you could easily toss more terrain onto there if you'd like.

    Good job.

    I think all the scenery looks nice. The dragon's teeth came up great.

    I'm not so keen on the terrain textuing though. I know a lot of people do it so must like it but for my eyes doing grass in solid patches just doesn't look natural.

    I'd add some more static grass around the edges to fade them out and avoid the harsh division you have atm:

    Also the steep hill edges tend to be the most subject to erosion so it looks most natural if there's little to no grass on the sides. For feature and interest maybe add some coarse sand to represent gravel instead?

    Also some kind of detail to help explain why the muddy areas are muddy would be cool. Maybe adding some water effects, battle damage or tread marks to show how the grass got ground up and destroyed would help to sell it. They'd be easy to do with some generic wall plaster and a spare rhino, just gloop on a few lines then press the treads into it when it's semi-set. The closeups look good but adding some extra details like that would really help to make it go "next level".

    Is that made with flat pieces of the citadel game board? It looks like it is but not sure since its flat but you can buy just flat sections. It looks pretty good. Some experiences from doing my citadel table... It almost looks like you used the kit they make for the table. The brown looks like that brown but it only looks like one kind of grass. If tou used that kit, use both shades of the grass. If not, maybe get some darker ciloured grass to offset what you have and give it a more natural look. What also helps set it off is drybrushing the brown with ochre.
    But Im picking nits because you asked... it looks pretty good right now.

    I like the board, too. Some of the comments above are certainly valid regarding a little more subtle blending of the colors - especially the bright green grass. That looks a little out of place, but can be fixed with a little airbrushing or blending a mixture of other textures. However, your scenery and block walls look great. And, the base board and most of the terrain is suitable for 40k or fantasy, if you wish.
