As we’re descending into apocalyptic frozen weather here it felt a good time to finally finish my desert board – here’s a couple of slightly rushed and ‘posed’ pics (marginally less boring than just an image of the board!).
I brushed on a full coat of W&N Galeria matte varnish too, which as well as protecting also helped to ‘flatten’ some of the harsher contrast which works well for terrain.
All in all I’m pleased, and it fits well on the wall brackets I’ve set up for it to keep it out the way and tidy.

Looks very deserty, what size is it? Like the scenics too, suitably sun bleached. Great to see you posting stuff again.
Cheers matey. It’s 3×2… all I’ve got the space for really. It’s a railway baseboard so has a ‘back’ too that I’m going to do in a different topography. Maybe ‘grey’ (urban or moonscape – scenario dependant)
I’m doing a double sided board myself, so much more useful! I like how yours has turned out. I constructed mine out of batons and MDF. It’s heavier than I intended, although it is about one metre square.
Yeah this is baton and plywood – it’s a railway baseboard – so not super light, but not too heavy either. Not certain what I’ll do with the back yet!
I thought the railway board construction might be different. If I was to do it again I would make a frame indented into/around a piece of blue foam. It would b lighter, but we live and learn!
That is very cool, who made the buildings?
Are the rock columns home made?
Is this on TWW?
‘Ullo. Cheers! They’re Scotia Grendel’s *tiny* 28mm buildings. They’re a touch big for 15mm but I like a touch oversized buildings so that the figure bases don’t ‘distort’ the scale.
No, I should post up on TWW more actually. I’ll try and pop a few bits up this week.
