I'm running at least 3 tournaments this year and already have 4 tables but 5 and 6 would be good to have ready before March so I set myself a challenge. Get my Frostgrave/Ariadna (Dawn) table up and running in a weekend one catch I'm babysitting my 4 year old and 2 year old as per usual and so the #‎tableinaweekend was born. I also have noticed were getting short of time here in the Battle of Boards so thought why not get this done now as well.

The table is done .... I did what I set out to do I destroyed the one ring .... wait what? I mean I finished the hard parts of the table all the big LoS/LoF blocking pieces are done. I've got some pre-painted resin pieces from Pegasus Hobbies to go onto this table but its currently at a friends house and a couple of scale models to 'ruin' and 'rust' to help fill the void in the centre of the table.

That aside here is back story to it all.

QUOTE
"Hayden's Folly"

If my triangulating is correct, this is, or more precisely was, the home of 'new religious body' read that as cult compound of the fiery ex-servicemen from 5th Armoured Rangers Regiment turned evangelical preacher, Hayden James. Due to some shady and questionable dealings involving off world teseum smuggling, James amassed a small fortune. This was more than enough to outfit himself and his followers with provisions, vehicles and even prefabricated structures. This was all they needed to leave the sinners that make up the majority of the USAriadna culture behind and strike out on their own.

Moving down route 1 and finally bypassing Mount Zion and The Wall itself, they made for unexplored regions of the Ariadna Exclusion Zone. All who knew of the group's intent warned him and any of his disciples who would listen that only misery, bandits, mercenaries and Antipodes awaited them. But they all claimed Hayden's visions were true and a heaven on Dawn awaited them. With logic lost on these people no one would ever set out after them.

A world like Dawn breeds hearty people with little time for fools. When the first reports from long range Maverick patrols reported a deserted settlement lay many miles East of the wall, it wasn't long until the ruins got their nickname "Hayden's Folly." A warning of what happens to fools who discount the dangers of a world like Dawn and put all their faith in a false idol. Now it's more a story told around camp fires to scare poorly behaving children into listening. That doesn't mean it wasn't a foolish mistake. The ruins are real enough.

I'll take the table to Ace Comics on Wednesday and see how it goes.

Will get the rest of my tables back from QNK this weekend so I can fix all the broken things and generally spruce them up. Plus get that pre-painted resin back off the other table to use here instead. biggrin.gif

Very nicely done. Are you going to add more snow / ice terrain or happy with the wintery / rainy look?

What kit were those mdf buildings from? The steps and raised levels would be great for treasure hunting. Are the rocky outcroppings blue foam? Good job!

I'm happy it's not snow it's not too tropical just a good kind of temperate feel. I think adding Snow effects would limit where I could use it. Without another mat or white table to complete the look.

These are the old CNC Workshop Pantheon set's. Infuriating things not laser cut but routed with CNC router's lots of cutting and sanding involved. But they were a great price.

Year that are made from extruded foam that is then hit with Spackle and some fine sand on the raised area's.

Foam safe spray used after that then black for shadows, brown for earth areas and grey for rocks. All rattle cans. Finally a cheap artists acrylic highlight/dry brush for everything with grey and finally white.

Right so many thanks to Micky for dropping one of my terrain sets over to Ace Comics on Wednesday afternoon that allowed me to get the Pegasus Hobbies: Sandbags and Barrels out of that tub and allocate them to this table instead. Gave the table a quick spin against Alistair and put these photos up on the various facebook groups I'm a part of and got some good feedback.

Its playable but a touch light. One of the comments that came through was the lack of rocks without trees on them which is easily fixed I will make some more smaller scatter pieces. I also have allot of sprues to run through the bandsaw to make more scatter with if I want. Might just go down that route and create some things similar to the CNC Workshop display pieces. Finally one of my mate Rory/John had the recent Avengers: Quinjet toy there and I sat that mid table to have a gander at whether that would help the table it really wasn't a bad piece being quite large and another local QLD player has done a great job of altering one to look spectacular.

OR

I might just got more of the CNC Pantheon series there is some sitting on the shelf at Ace Comics already ..... hmmmmm.

Lookin tops vissy, its good to see the old pantheon series being put to use.

It could be fun making some blown up sections, have a play around with different effects you can get by maiming the mdf in various ways. You can get a pretty good rough texture by cutting a slice into the end of the piece and then peeling back a layer to wherever it breaks off. Also, ive tried leaving assembled pieces in a bucket of water overnight so they expand in size and warp before tearing into them with a saw. Food 4 thought anyway.

Also you probably have texture spray already but thought id mention the darker granite effect paint from bunnings is pretty good in that you can use it as textured dust and grime over your paintjob

This is a off statement for me to make as I'm kind of know for telling people to buy good tools and be prepared to spend as much on tools/paint etc as on models but I look at those textured sprays when picking up my original paints for this job and scuffed. They are asking too much for a one use product. Can't use it as a primer or something later so I choose not to pick it up even though I like the effect.

That aside thanks for the kind words and look forward to putting more of this table up over the coming weeks.

I've figured out I might be able to change the way it plays and today I'm running my Infinity Battle Commission - Teamfinity tournament and this is one of the tables in use so the walls are going to the centre of the table and the other scatter around the table.

Still for the life of me CAN'T find a Quinjet anywhere though. sad.gif

Apparently its pretty interesting to those filthy nomads.

Can't imagine why .... maybe its got to do with the good olde AI from Aperture Labs?
