More Mecha Smackdown

Thought this week I would talk a little about the playing field. This is a the first pass:

The board is made up of four 2'x2' black foamcore panels. Artwork was created on a computer and printed out on 8.5"x11" full sheet labels. Additional labels were made for the circles witht he numbers (these are the starting positions for the mecha. This entire board will eventually be replaced with one of fiberboard and painted to match the barriers.

The barriers are also made from foamcore. Two layers were glued together, cut to shape and then skinned with thin sheets of styrene. Onto this was glued odd scraps of plastic, some with textures, and the odd greeble or two. Painting was simple: Rustoleum primer, a wash of thinned black ink, and, so far, a quick drybrush of Delta Ceramcoat Hippo Gray. I'd like to do some more weathering on them at some point.

That's it for this week! Later....

  1. Great looking arena... that would work great for games like Heavy Gear Blitz, or maybe Mech Rugby?
