This will be my third table and finally I feel like I knw what I'm doing enough to do a decent job.
The base is made of three pieces of 6mm MDF each measuring 4 foot by 2 foot. This way I could get all the materials in the car. :lol: It's mounted on to a frame made of 2 x 1 with cross braces every 8" for support meaning its quite strong but still light enough to move easily as it will sit upon the dining table when in use. The edging is 3" skirting board.
The screw holes were all filled and sanded before the whole thing was painted brown. You can't actually tell it is three pieces of MDF now either. I used leftover emulsion paint to paint the surface, and then drybrushed it with a cream colour, again emulsion but this time a cheap tester pot from Wilkinsons.
Finally it was covered with a mixture of two different static grasses, both Woodland Scenics but I forget which ones. I then sprayed the whole thing with watered down PVA glue to seal all the grass in.
Now for terrain....
