It's Orktober time!  :D

I've got more on the 'to do' shelf but I don't think I'll get them done this month.

Say hello to Skunkbutt and his trusty driver Zoomfrag.

Is there such a close likeness then! :)

Jim what are you like! I had you down as a serious historical miniatures man and you come out with this. Just skimmed through the thread and it's brilliant. The ork vehicles are fantastic.

Have you ever thought of doing this for a living.  ;)

Thanks  :)

I've got a big terrain board commission on and it seemed like a god time to add to my own so I'm going for a couple of coastal/wide river boards. The water covers about a third of the board and if I do a few they can be placed together to represent a wide river or left on their own for a coastal/lake shore.

Not enough room to set them up yet but one of the boards is going to be a simple harbour. It's primarily for Oldhammer of course but it could also be used for more historical settings (Dorset smugglers or Victorian Invasion England etc).

The wooden wharf is just a temp one for the photo but the real one will be loose so larger ships can moor against the quay if necessary.

Lentils for the groundwork that will have a roughed out edge blending into the same sort of ground cover as the rest of the boards.

Ah, the individually applied lentil cobblestones - that's true dedication lol

Why grey foam this time, James? Does it have different properties to the blue or green, or have Panel Systems just changed their dye?

I just can't help myself  lol

Grey is the standard now from Panelsystems. They do have some blue left as old stock (or so I've been told) but it wasn't in the measurements I ordered.

No discernable difference in the quality, density etc. The only difference I can see is that the surface of the 10mm is a little bit 'rougher' than in the blue but not to make much of a problem.

I hops this will include a medieval style stone bridge build.

Small progress, the wooden wharf is done (still needs some ropes on it but they'll be done much later).

The quay still needs a bit of filling, the wooden piles at the sides and of course millions of lentils  lol




More lentils tonight along with the quay details.
