Great work on all of it, the flooded section has given me some ideas that I'll have to work out on paper, in the mean time I hope to see more.

The finish your getting already looks fantastic, going to be amazing when your done!

As for 'bad ideas' I have never seen a truly fantastic terrain heavy board where, when the creator is asked "So how much work went into this build" they did not reply with a slightly pained and weary look in the eyes  ;)

The board is already looking great. Regarding the monitors: some might have failed but others may be still on (just for variety).

"L3" - not sure. Better as blank wall? Alternative suggestions?

Ok, so decision time - need to buy pigment for the resin and paint the barrels (in black here). Could be sludgy green-brown or lurid turquoise water from the references (market street and jupiter factory). Barrels could be blue, yellow, or red I think... A bit tempted to go turquoise/yellow to keep on palette, blue is as per half-life, and red draws the eye.

Looking cracking so far  8)

Could you mix two pots of resin, one of each perfected colour and pour them both at the same time from different ends of the board?

I've no doubt you could...

problem with that is time = osmosis, I think for the piece it needs to be a uniform colour

Turquoise + yellow sounds like a wonderful combination.

Gogogo!

A bright, toxic-looking colour would be better than sludgy green. Makes sure people don't go in the water. Turquoise would suggested something like copper sulphate.

Looking dam snazzy.  Are you planning to pour the resin in one go or in layers?  I would about the chemical reaction in the resin generating too much heat and causing the walls and plastic parts to warp.  I had that happen with one of my boards and had to scrap the whole thing.  Been leery of pouring whole surfaces ever since.  Again great build and execution.
