A day of working on terrain

As I usually do on Sundays, I went to hang out with my friends Bryon and Jenn. Bryon had finished assembling his coastline skirmish board, so we started painting it today. Here are just a few pics of the small amount of work that was done on the board.

The board assembled. This is all Bryon's design, which is turning out pretty sweet.

Bryon adds a basecoat.

Bryon painted the beach, the ocean (classic blue still looks nice), and later the rocks. I added the foam for him.
We found a stopping point to have a couple quick samurai skirmishes on my board. Yep -- plenty of space for 42mm minis.


  1. Impressing piece of coast - the real feeling of a british grey and stormy day!! Good luck for the next steps - I am curious to see the progress!

  2. I'm sorry, next time I'll do purple or green water on a stormy strangely lit sea, if you do your next pond red for all the samurai blood in it.

  3. Nope, keeping my pond whatever color it is right now :)

  4. Very nice boards. The new one is coming along very nicely. I quite like the 'classic' dark blue sea and the wavecaps/seafoam is a brilliant touch (especially around the island outcrops). Well done!

  5. Ooh. I think my favorite is that interesting rocky arch. It's very realistic. Nicely painted sea too, I must say.

  6. Great looking terrain boards. I love the detail of the Koi in the pond.
