Commission Display Board 2014

Bretonnian Display Board
This display board is built for a large bretonnian army locally in central Illinois.  The board itself is made of 4'' of polystyrene and a 1/4'' plywood base.  The outside edges are pine board with nails, screws, and glue holding them in so that it can take a beating.  The Backdrop tower is made from casted train brick, GW tower pieces, polystyrene core, and wood liner.  Step by step construction is below. 
Wood glue is used in each step of construction, overnight drying and weights are used at every step.

Mounted on a 24''x24''x4'' sized display board the display is designed to house up to 5 larger knight units for 3,000 points.  The center recessed corner will house the castle section.  Made up of 3.5'' deep 5'' tall castle segments.  The back corner will be home to a GW tower overlooking the castle sections.  A moat is then cut into the castle section.  As of now the Castle sections are being glued onto a removable wood sheet for easier transportation.

The cobblestone is cut from

Water is melted from hobbylobby to a little under boiling and then poored in over the river.  Remember that polystyrene melts so have layers of plaster over the polystyrene.

This is my typical grey stone and wooden paint scheme

The edging is from hobbylobby, tacked together, and predrilled screws along with glue.

two small huts are added on the castle innerwall

The water is painted dark blue and then clear water is heated and added.

The water is then painted with a little white on top where it rushes past rocks
