Saturday Hobby Day

After last weekends early start and adventures I needed a rest and what better way is do do some hobbying.

The day started with the delivery of my Warhammer rule book and it's massive...all I have to say I love eBay it cost me £3!!

 After having a quick look at the rules and looking at all the minis I dug out my Kings Of War dwarfs which I have lot more then remembered and I hope this lot will get me through my first couple of games.

So now I have my minis I started off making some movement trays from some spare foam board and wooden sticks. This was a random idea I had just to get started with Warhammer so I can then maybe upgrade to the plastic trays later on. Once all the glue was dry I gave it a quick undercoat of black paint and added some gravel around the edge to hide the cutting marks from the board and make it look a bit more interesting.

Next up was making some forest terrain from the remaining foam board. During the week I picked up some sticky green felt and thought this would be great to give me a quick and easy grass effect. I cut out two shapes that would cove a decent area on a board and proceeded to cover with the felt. The end result came out all right. I think I am going to try and make a few smaller ones for rough terrain and smaller woods.

Next up was painting two dwarfs which will be used in my new Warhammer army but at the moment they are going into my Frostgrave war band. So now I have 2 crossbow men and my war band for Frostgrave is all painted..

Well it was not a bad way to spend a Saturday. It's great to get these projects finished today as some have been on to do my list to finish for a bit now.
So now i'm off to my next build but first I think now would be a good time for a cup of tea.
