"Papers Please" or how I learnt to stop worrying and embrace

...a short deadline.


So Salute 2017 is approaching, I've got a game booked with my local club the Gamers in Thanet Society and thought I might as well start early in putting the boards together.

More to come...

I don't know why but this made me laugh plenty. Even after the set up and the explicit notice of 'starting' to put boards together, I saw the big picture of paint and board, figured this would be the first in an after action report of a frantic weekend. ... scroll down to peruse the inevitable series of images and comments in a paint slapping, brow furrowing, problem solving thread. . .

more to come . . .

No one asks such questions after having conversed with Burke and Hare.. I mean Rev and Phil, for any length of time

Rather excitingly I painted the MDF tiles "dirty protest" brown, and then had to squeeze together a temporary table to get an idea of layout. Luckily I already have some buildings painted for this project...

Well I'm going for a simple minimalist look.

Collected all the pieces I have ready-ish for this and took a blurry photo of them...
Image

Started laying out the road and pavement to see how they work, I had the MDF cut to match the size of a road section to make life easier...
Image

Knocked up some matching bases...
Image

Gluing the pieces into place, I don't have much room so the most I can manage is to lay out four tiles at a time...
Image

Roads and paving in place and first lick of paint...

Looking good Phil . . . . I'm plodding away at woods and bits of the mountain that the paint-brush seems to have missed!!
