2015! New year, new projects... same resolutions, i.e. keep on painting and building stuff!
I hope everything is going well for everyone. Between nougat and marzipan I've sorted a way to keep on building scenery for Besenval Port. Houses of marzipan were a cool idea, but didn't work, I ended up eating all of them. So I went back to the Sarissa MDF buildings I had pending. I chose two bridges. The first one:
|A bridge too far|
The manufacture is wonderful. Solid, easy-building and utterly appealing. Couldn't resist this model. I covered all the vehicle transit surface with sand to depict the pave and painted the rest trying it to look awfully rusty.
|Oldschool vehicles fit in perfectly|
I thought that having one bridge would be enough. But then I saw this other model:
I thought of painting it with some more vivid colour, but then it wouldn't fit in the rest of the atmosphere. I extended the lenght of the bridge so it could fit my board, but apparently the addition looks well enough to pass unnoticed.
|You understand me? How could I not get this beauty?|
|Modern vehicles might experience some troubles|
This is how they look on the board:
|Now you whistle the Bridge on the river Kwai|
So 2015 is here, we are on bussiness again! My most immediate projects will involve (apart from this board, of course, which I hope to have ready for this year!) getting back to HeroQuest (stages 2 and hopefully 3... shhh... I'll explain in time...), recovering that gem which is Battlefleet Gothic (about time!) and I have a Hobbit project in mind, because something needs to be done after the pain of the Peter Jackson movies. Be sure to expect some board games too, of course, I'm not idle at all these days ;)
Happy New Year everybody!
