For those who had high expectations of what I would be producing, sorry - you'll be a tad disappointed I'm afraid.
Just some very basic stuff - walls/barriers and some plinths/bunkers for Car Wars games. I didn't want to do anything too complicated on this session as I hadn't worked with foamboard before. It was a useful way to practice some of the techniques needed for when I do try some more complex projects.
The walls/barriers are 2" high and just under 12" long, superglued to a 2" wide strip of OHP film. They'll be used for marking out arenas (for CW cognoscenti, think along the lines of the Rat Race Arena, Aladdin's Castle, Amex Proving Grounds).
They can also be used with the plinths/bunkers:
As for the plinths/bunkers, they are 3" square by 2" high. Making them gave me plenty of practice of doing rabeted joints, which will prove useful for making up other bunkers, buildings etc. My plan over the next few weeks is to make up some more of these in different sizes and shapes, possibly with cut-out doors and windows/firing slots.
I have a hankering to do up a version of the Rainbow Bay Blast Furnace. I'll need a lot of them and they need to be covered in silver paper!
I was hoping to do some more today, but after chores and shopping I didn't have time. That was mostly due to the fact that I agreed to give Simon a practice game of FoG:R for Britcon. That meant I needed to work up an army list, sort out the figures I need and pack my bag ready for tomorrow.
So, what's next on the foamboard construction?
Ramps and elevated sections
