Canvas backs all painted

January 26, 2015

0

I decided that trying to work out options for painted roads and rivers was a mistake, and took advantage of the continued fine weather to finish the paint on all three canvas backs.

The Small Wargame Board

January 24, 2015

This is pretty much finished. I hot-glued the same brown velvety fabric around the inner border today.

I really wanted to keep those separate, but they are imperial foot square tiles and my foldaway board is 1200mm by 1200mm, before I added raised edging. That reduced it […]
