The colored patches on the floor are not blood. I try to stay away from the cliche puddles-of-blood-on-a-bloodbowl-field.

I suppose I was hoping that it was blood really. Being a sewer the mind boggles as to what else could cause a   reddish brown stain.  :o

Random pieces of metal lying around and corroding away could for instance. Adding these tell-tale pieces of metal will be on my "to do" list next :)

That is so much better than what I was thinking  :D. Do you get much time to play Bloodbowl?

Not nearly as much time as I would like, but I live close to Dusseldorf where the annual Dungeonbowl takes place, and I can play the occasional game against my girlfriend. She prefersplaying Necromantic. I like to play any of the other teams I own.

At the moment that's somewhat limited to:

chaos
dwarves
pro elfs
goblins
halflings
high elf
humans
lizardmen
necromantic
nurgle
ogre
orcs
skaven
underworld

Thank you. I was thinking about that as well. How much do I need markings.

I tried the wire and it does not work.

I will try a trail of small rocks/brick debris to see if that works.

I personally would not need the additional markings, but I'm still trying to include them in a way that does not disrupt the overall appearance.

Here are some higher quality photographs showing, in more detail, how the rusty grates turned out.

One grate



Two grates



Underneath the grate



A bridge too far



Crusty and rusty





I started pouring in the acrylic water mass. It's a slow process but the results are looking promising so far

The grates and sewers look really good in my opinion.  The rust is just right :).  All in all, it's a really atmospheric gaming board, which could also be used for dungeon based boardgames like Advanced Heroquest.
You haunt my in-box like an ex-girl friend could only dream of.

? You talking to yourself Solitaire? I guess you are talking about re-roll/score/dead player markings. Personally I don't think a board of ths style needs that kind of addition.

Now that you have added different colours and crustiness to the rust on the grates they look brilliant.

Not sure what you did to the stains on the floor but they don't look as obvious now and look a lot better.

Talking to myself is part of the creative process ;)

Thank you reg. the rust. I tried hard to make it look good. My girlfriend had serious doubts at the moment everything looked a deep blue

I did not change anything in the stains, but my cellphone exaggerates the reds in a picture more then my Nikon D3

Not much news to report here. I'm in the process of making a high res image of the board for printing purposes. I wanted to do that before I pour the resin mass and possibly mess up everything

Well none news is better than no news  :) Why is it that you need high resolution photos? Are you printing very large photos?

I was contacted by the organizer of a BB tournament who wants to use this design for their tournament. 15 boards will be printed. In order to print them, the company that takes care of the printing asked for high res images. I can deliver a 150Mp image, which is most likely a bit more then they need, but scaling down is easier then scaling up ;)

I will post some new progress pics soon though

So is that 3D printing you are talking about or gaming mats? As it is for a tournament will you now have to add pitch markings?

It will be gaming mats at this stage. I will add the required markings in Photoshop and make them look good so no-one will notice they were not painted on.

To my shame I must admit that I'm already planning a new gaming board

Nothing to be ashamed about there Solitaire. I wish I had half the drive that you seem to have when it comes to modelling.

I have never played BB so I am wondering whether or not the bridge and water that you have included in the pitch will have any effect in a game

As long as I don't come up with some house rules, there is no "in game" effects to worry about. Including house rules could be fun, but I think playing the field as a regular field will work best.

I just worked on the "markings" for the touchdown zones and went with a collection of debris and rocks spread along the distance along with some sand and moss trails. So far that seem sto work out ok (need some detail work to make things look good enough) and I will post pictures of this progress as soon as I have some light to make pictures in. My cellphone just could not take a picture in the dark, and I left my camera tripod in the car.

Pictures => Tomorrow :)

PS: I wouldn't call that "drive"... more like cruise or crawl. I'm also in the process of painting up some BloodBowl dwarves. Same thing there, pictures => Tomorrow due to lack of available light

I notice that the list of teams that you own already includes Dwarves so are you repainting some of your models or adding to a team?

Do you live in perpetual darkness in Germany?

Lol. No perpetual darkness. Could not paint much in darkness. But at 4 in the afternoon, which is about the time I get home from work, sunlight is all but gone these days.

That is progress as it stands.

I did own the 3rd edition Bloodbowl dwarves but liked the 2nd edition dwarves better, so I picked up a team of 2nd edition dwarves, stripped the 3rd edition dwarves and intend to sell them when I find the time.

I did the same with my human team. Replaced the 3rd edition ones with a 2nd edition team. My Ogre team was 2nd edition to start with. So far the only team I have multiples of is Skaven.

Outstanding. It is amazing how realistic your work looks. Your attention to detail really lifts this terrain to  another level.

We have a little progress to show

One, my girlfriend provided THE idea for the typography on the score counters. Something I could not figure out at the time.



I also built the turn counters





Turn counters need to dry and then need some paint

The board as it sits there with score and turn counters



And some details





(I hid 3 rats in the field, but they also still require paint)

Next up, I need to place those logs in the ground and hang some lengths of chain between them to seperate the dugouts



In anticipation of J-Bones Slann team we also started on a Slann themed pitch. Still a very early WIP

The level of detail on that board is outstanding.  The turn counters are a really nice addition too.  This all looks great :).

See Solitaire this is what I like about your work. I really like how you have managed to make your turn counter into something that looks like it belongs in a sewage works. I guess this was your intention but your counter has the look of an aeration pond. If you had built it so that it was closer to the surface of the pond it would have been even better.
