(I suppose this could also go in the scenery section as well, but I wont piss the mods off lol)
So for the two weeks I was home for college I got engineering major friend and good gaming buddy together and we decided to build a table. We wanted to do it with out any GW product what so ever. Because let's face it $50 for a building, $275 for a table is too damn expensive for us poor college students. Everything came from Home Depot (aside from a few things), so anybody can do this, for roughly the same cost and time.
Once I figure out how to add pics I will. I just dont want to have to deal with attachments at the moment.
Upload the pics to a hosted site, then you can post the link using the small square icon in hte reply option that has a tree in it.. Right between the globe and movie film icons.
Thanks mate, lol, I feel so embarassed now.
So we started out with a $10 piece of ply wood. It was an 8x4 piece of chip board for more specifics.
Once it was in the shop we cut 2 feet off to make a 6X4 and brushed it off to get those splinters or dust off. We did a bit of sanding to soften the edges, JUST THE EDGES, no need to sand the top as you're adding texture to it anyway.
We next applied a layer of PVA glue ( some uber hold elmers, not GW). We used the 2x2 squares already on the wood as a template for keeping the texture and glue layer even. basically one square at a time was how we went.
We kept the sand in a bucket for easy access and use. But make sure its a new non brittle bucket otherwise this will happen...
one of us did sand while the other painted glue on. I'm on the right
That's the complete sand layer (obviously the phots of just a corner but meh)
Once dry, we gave it two days because in the cold weather it took forever for it to dry! We turned it on its side let the extra sand fall off, go gravity, and primed it. (no photos of that process as we should all know how to do that) Once the primer is dry you can start painting.
I rolled it on and used a brush to fill in the gaps, becaus ethe roller (depending on the sand) will just go right over the sand and leave spots.
I mixed the two colors 50-50
I'll post terrain work tomorrow. Also if you buy the supplies we'll do commisions. But you should check out the terrain first.
Also if you can't wait. All photos can be seen at http://www.flickr.com/photos/5292339...th/5315321518/
