    To make textured paint isn't it just to put some snd into the prefered paint you're going to use?
    I think textured paint could be the same as "Murmaling" in Norway... can anyone correct me on this?

    I'm not sure what "Murmaling" is but I use my own mixture and it works great.
    I mix about 50% paint / 25% PVA glue / 25% sand...sometimes a little dab of water to the mix. It gets to a porridge like consistency and you can put on with a stiff paint brush. Just dry brush over top...works great.

    I prefer more paint, less PVA glue for ease of spreadability and increased coverage.

    What kind of paint are you selling???

    Just kidding, sounds good, I like my textured paint thick, almost like artist gesso.
    Thinner works too.

    Sorry about that one...

    But why do you put PVA glue in the mix? I thought the paint itself would be enough to keep the sand in plase.

    I myself followed the insturctions on the GW website on how to make cityfight terrain out of cardboard. It worked well apart from the fact that when i painted over my masking tape which lined the walls it began to peel off.

    To combat this problem i simply slapped a couple of light coats of wood glue over the top first and it worked a treat; and since the wood glue is waterproof my whole building will be protected if it gets wet.

    I recommend coating your buildings in either PVA or wood glue anyway as it also helps add to the sturdyness.

    Hope this helps, if you have any other tips as i'm sort of new to terrain making myself!

    The glue over the stuff is the best you can do.
    Masking tape isn&#39;t good for anything but marking out edges so you don&#39;t paint on sertain things... doesn&#39;t work at all when wet.

    Personally I prefer not to use cardboard buildings, it tends to often to bend and get damaged, at least the thin stuff you get from GW.
    If you ever consider making them out of carboard at least do it with several layers of cardboard, then it will also be more stiffer and stronger and can even take a good coat of filler without falliung apart.

    Thanks.
    My buildings are all made from corrugated card as i can&#39;t really afford much else but the coat of glue helps as it&#39;s not only waterproof, it adds to the protection that the building needs &#39;cos its obviously gonna take a few knocks.
    Then all i did was apply a nice coat of sand mixed with a bit of PVA glue for the texture and just spary painted over the top to finish.

    Does anyone have any ideas about how to make a large cityfight board I&#39;m thinking about 4 foot by 4 foot which needs to include:

    -Plenty of buildings to fight over,
    -A large grassy area near one of the edges,
    -Some nice destroyed roads,
    -And a few Imperial Bunkers.

    Plus anything which just adds a little variety like,

    -Rivers,
    -Rubble,
    -Mass Graves etc. etc

    If anyone can help i&#39;d be grateful cos i&#39;m only just starting out with 40k let alone cityfight&#33;
