Looks good. Did you mix the litter and sand w/ the paint. Or just painted over after the glue was dry.

started with plywood then gouged holes for puddles and smoothed with dremel-elmersb over all then added kitty litter sand mix- painted base using household black for cost effectiveness-then drybrushed with varying degrees of success-mixed epoxy with yellow and added to puddles-side note:do not mix entire batch of 5 minute epoxy at once(I only got 3 puddles out of an entire tube before the mix was to hard to pour) I should have used a longer setting epoxy-i also covered the entire bottom of the board with elmers for stability

Nice "Combat Patrol" board, get some terrain and you are set. Small games 1200 points and below are the easiest to learn anything bigger and there is just to much going on unless you build a repetitive list where your 6 troops choices are all Tac. Marines all equipped the same way and your tanks are fitted all the same then you only have to learn 2 things, but then those lists are boring Smile

Yea I forgot that the stuff I was using would harden in 5 minutes. I mixed everything at once to try to achieve the same color. Next time I will use an epoxy with a longer set time. Thanku- PS dont know what happened to my spackle hills pic
