Your attention to detail really lifts this terrain to  another level.

I also built the turn counters

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.

I never really did any research on sewage works but I did work in a chemical company once and they did have installations similar to what I built for the turn counters. I figured they would not look completely out of place here, but it is excellent news to hear I was so close to something that really fits in a real life sewer :D

With the turn counters I really focused on ergonimics rather then realism I'm afraid.

I look forward to filling those ponds, which can be done as soon as the modelling putty cured and the things got some paint on them

I ordered a bunch of manhole covers to create re-roll tokens. Have also found and ordered suitable chain to continue work on the dugouts, but today we started pouring the water.

The first layer is in now. I leave a week between layers to make sure each layer cures and hardens completely. Each layer is 1mm deep. That kind of obliterates the original plan and timeframe, but I should have plenty of time to finish the project before the underground cup kicks off.

Superb work once more :).  The level of detail on this board is so good.  It's almost a shame to put figures on it in some respects :D.  It's going to be incredible to play games of Bloodbowl on that.  In addition, it would also make for a quest level room in a game of Advanced Heroquest, so it's dual purpose in that respect.

Wow your project looked good before but the addition of the "water" has taken it to another level.

How come you are leaving so long between layers? I thought it was best to layer resin when each layer was slightly sticky otherwise don't you end up with visible lines between the layers?

Thank you for bringing that to my attention. In that case I'll raise the water level by 1 more mm today

Oh right, wasn't expecting that as an answer. Have you not cast resin before? What type of resin are you using? How come you are only pouring 1.00mm at a time? I am fairly sure you can pour 15.00mm layers of acrylic or polyester resins without issue. If I remember correctly the thicker the layer the more heat that is produced though so maybe 1.00mm is safer in your case as I wouldn't want your paint to be ruined..

Your work is simply stunning Solitaire. I can't wait to see the final product with a game in progress. Just amazing, well done!

Alienscar, the product I'm using is a high gloss resin based clear coat. I am not sure how it will behave if I cast 15mm of it all at once, but my biggest fear is that it would not cure completely, or that it would crimp so much during curing that it ends up looking like a clear high gloss version of a dried riverbed.

I could have gone for one of the more commonly used products used to cast qater on terrain features, but I needed so much of it that the price became prohibitive.

From what I can see however things look good and I can continue casting a new layer every 3 days.

Working on the re-roll counters for the sewer pitch

2016-02-14_02-22-48 by b j, on Flickr

Still waiting for other materials to arrive so I can continue work on the rest of the board. Also, after casting 3 layers of resin I think I'll leave things as they are. Everyting went fine so far, but the resin has a sligtly brownish cast to it and I don't want it to go too dark. Will show pictures as soon as the 3rd layer dried up some more and is at least stable enough to keep it's shape

That's a shame. Hope it isn't too brown but a slightly brackish colour is probably more realistic for a sewer than crystal clear water don't you think?

Not too brown. Actually, the coloration does add to the overall appearance at this stage. I do hope the surface ends up being completely smooth this time, so I can let things cure and take pictures to show that everything turned out looking just as planned, but then a bit different (in a good way)

Thank you very much. My posting history goes quite a way back, and in the 14 years that I have been posting here I learned a lot. Most of the techniques I learned by reading what others did, so hearing that my stuff now inspires others is a great motivation for me to start new projects, finish existing ones and try to learn more techniques that I can incorporate in my next few projects

Hey Solitaire surely that resin has cured by now! How's it all looking?

Yes, the resin cured so far. I will need to add another one or two layers, but I have to wait until the temperatures rise a bit because it's still freezing at night.

In the meanwhile I am painting my bloodbowl teams. 4 at a time

Here is a small update on the teams I am currently painting

The last bits of my Ork team which I started in 1999 and the first batch of my Goblin team. Unified colors for both teams to allow using the Goblins in the Ork team

I never knew that there was a Dwarven Deathroller ever made.  That thing looks very comical and entertaining.

All of the teams are superbly painted, but it is the Dwarf team that that catches my eye the most.  I've never been a fan of Dwarves at all, but there's something about the way you've painted them that seem so apt.

There were Deathrollers in 2nd, 3rd and 5th edition Bloodbowl, each with their own miniature. I used most of the 3rd edition Deathroller but added the engine from an Empire Steam tank and the wheels. Also added a little bell salvaged from a chocolate bunny and a pint from a Dwarf regiment sprue :)

I do not really like Dwarves either, but I got a good deal on these 2nd edition miniatures and had fun painting them. Personally it's the Human team I have high hopes of.

In a few weeks I will add a Slann team for my girlfriend to th epainting queue

One team I would still like to build is a team of 70's glam rock stars which I would like to play as Norse. I already have Eddie from Iron Maiden on the way who will then serve as Yeti (35mm tall miniature)

So next up in that trend would be to build Gene Simmons as Ulfwerener, Paul Stanley and Ace Frehey as Berserkers, 2 Roadies as runners Bruce Dickinson, Dave Murray, Steve Harris, Nicko McBrain and Adrian Smith as Linemen

I agree the images do look a bit flat but other than that I really like the look of them. I particularly like your Orks & Goblins. The more that you post in this thread the more I realise I know nothing at all about Blood Bowl. I always thought that the teams were based on Warhammer armies so I was surprised by your mention of Norse.
