So here it is, my first project log.
For those of you that haven't seen my thread in the M, P&T section (Fully Modelled Gaming Tables), this is hopefully going to be the first of many fully sculpted boards echoing back to the era when every GW had at least one awesome board in the store for kids and vets alike to gawp at!
I've decided to start with a beach landing table, designed for amphibious assaults and the like. Mostly because i've always wanted to make one and partly because like almost every other guard player i've never been able to make use of the chimera's amphibious ability!
After doing a bit of research (ok so i just watched Saving Private Ryan a few times ), I'm going to base the board on the Omaha D-Day landings (hence the title of the thread).
I've got a rough idea of what i want on the board so i've made a basic sketch on my hardboard base:
I've started by hacking out a rough shape with a saw to give me a basis for the beach:
Thats as far as I've got for now, I'll probably only get one or two nights a week to make more progress (such is the life of the busy family man), but i'll keep you updated as I get little bits done every now and then.
Until next time...
