Bolt Action/Flames of War – Intro Board

So as 6s2hit seems to have become my new patron I’ve been making them a new introduction board. However as Jason threw me some resin flames of war buildings, as well as Kenny giving me some of Warlord’s plastic ‘Ruined Farm House’ Bolt Action buildings, I decided to make a duel usage board.

So I’ve based the buildings on removable bases which slot into the board, this should make it usable for both 28mm & 15mm scales.

Anyhoo some in progress pictures:

The lumpy lines of balsa are the basis which the hedgerows will be built upon. The next stage of construction will be smoothing everything together with filler then adding sand and gravel texturing.

Hope these amuse ;)

  1. Very nice sir. I know it’s an introduction board but if you had raised or filled the area between the battens with styrofoam you could have added more boards eventually in a modular style . If you add another board now you have a wooden batten to get over. Also beware of using filler as it adds serious weight to a board. Good luck😀
