Knocking the Rust Off

Hey y'all. Its been too long since I have posted anything. I really have been in a bit of a rut in the hobby department but trying to get back into the swing of things. I haven't really painted anything in a while. The only painting I did was a few weeks back when I attended a painting seminar in Toronto taught by Meg Maples but I will do a post on that later.

I have been working on my WWX demo board a little so here are some wips of my first attempts at a real board:

Here is a 2x2 section of MDF. DieselDM covered this section with a spray on texture something or other as an experiment to try and avoid having to glue sand over the entire section. I have to say I am happy with the experiment and he is currently texturing three more sections for me :)

Here are three sections of mesas based on the tutorial from Rob Hawkins blog. They need to have some static grass and shrubbery added to break up the brown a little but that will be added once I get the particle board bases from Diesel.

Here is a couple crappy shots of the board with the mesas sitting on the board. I still have the big wall section of rock to work on but it is on hold until I can figure out a good way to cut in the mine shaft which I forgot to do during assemble (dumbass).
So there you have it the wips on my first table. I have to say so far so good and I have really been enjoying the process. I got a package yesterday from which will be the beginning of my township section of the board but I'll do a post on them once I get a chance to play around with them some. OK off to bed for this guy have a great day y'all.
