Re: Mid-century urban board

You know you're in the '70s when the figure is described as "detective in cardigan"! Crooked Dice do a game called 7TV that might fit nicely too. Thanks for that, I will check it out! Love the Sweeny or Ashes to Ashes/Life on Mars style. I was also considering using some old Necromunda or infinity ...

Fantastic and I really like the figures too
Do you have a set of rules in mind?
Thanks Truscott. Yeah I was thinking of using "The Chicago Way" by Great Escape Games (the mobster equivalent of "Dead Man's Hand"). Did you know of any alternatives that were worth a look?

Re: Barbarossa eye candy

If it is these style of fields you mean, then yes, they are dead simple: https://ibb.co/album/gPtfgF Just pieces of 2mm MDF, cut to size, edges chamfered with a block plane. Sealed and balanced with weak PVA. Then a mix of equal parts bitter Chocolate exterior paint, PVA and sawdust. Mixed up to a ...

Re: Barbarossa eye candy

Wonderful looking tables.

You may not know but does anyone know how one would go about making the dirt field with low veg/shrub planting seen in some of the pictures?

Id imagine just some basing and dry brushing but what are the shrubs? are they tufts? WS foliage?

I agree with TT - I think your second building looks spot on. I think you could also add some rusty reds and browns; might depend on your settings?
If it was in central Australia I would suggest fire orange rust, dishevelled panels and plenty of holes! :D

Re: Mid-century urban board

Thanks KTiger for the very generous comments. I guess its something about making it yourself, all you see are the errors. Yep, Italy will inspire my next board, a WW2 one. It will be a more traditional board with pieces of terrain on top of the board/mat, rather than the static nature of this US bo...

Re: Mid-century urban board

A short Part 5 is up on the blog https://curiajulia.blogspot.com/2019/02 ... art-5.html

For those who are interested, I had a go at making some cars for game 'Gaslands' recently, with varying results https://curiajulia.blogspot.com/2019/02/gaslands.html
