The black Library is blog dedicated to the miniature war gaming hobby, specifically the warhammer 40,000 universe and it's associated games. Mainly focussing on the modelling and painting aspect of the hobby it will also feature game reports as my miniature army's do combat on the tabletop battlefields.
things are afoot, I am gathering all the pieces to build a new modular gaming board. I plan to mirror the style of forgeworld tiles, in so much as I will build in raised plinths for the buildings to sit on. I'm planning on an outpost style board, a mix of industrial, residential and shanty properties. I also plan to make a landing pad and to include canal style cut outs or channels, to give more of a multi level feel. Making this table on the cheap is going to be the main focus, I plan on spending less than £100 for the whole table, including paint! So far my spend is up to £30, that includes 5 cans of desert tan spray and 25 polystyrene sheets off eBay at 600mm X 400m each. Not a bad start I think. If you have any ideas of what to include then let me know, the more interesting, the better!
I'm going to sandwich 2 together at a time so that I can add some depth and channels etc.
