Well, today I finished off the last board of the eight Forge World Realm of Battle Cityscape boards I brought about a month ago. Its a little difficult to believe that these arrived less than a month ago! Talk about a painting bender. I must say though, painting these boards has been a real pleasure. Its actually one of the most interesting projects I’ve tackled in a very long time. I think I just enjoyed painting a very different subject matter other than miniatures. The use of different techniques and just the scale of these boards keep me interested all the way to the end.
Its hard to get a real appreciation of just how good these boards look from just the photos. I don’t mean that as a self gratifying statement, its a compliment to Forge World actually. They have really outdone themselves with these boards. They are exceptional and I am eagerly awaiting further releases, but I get the feeling that the next lot wont be out for some time. These boards by far and away set the standard for table top modular scenery boards. Nothing, and I mean nothing on the market comes close to even touching them.
So lets take a look at them…
So I hope you’ve enjoyed this phase of the build… If you liked this stage, you are going to love the next phase, buildings. I am particularly excited about what is in stall for these boards once the buildings begin to take shape on them. Its really going to set them off.
The first board I’m going to work on is the white marble Shattered Plaza board. I’m going to build a White Marble Cathedral to adore thats magnificent board. Expect an update over the weekend with some significant progress. I’m pretty amped up about the next phase and cant wait to tackle it.
Until then, thanks for dropping in
