My very bad cold (or flu, or whatever) is keeping me from doing a whole lot, except for lying on the couch, watching Sharpe, and Witches of East End, but a lot of paracetamol gives me some moments without headaches where I can fiddle a bit around.
Over the last 2 days I have managed to work a bit on the Camp and Baggage bases for GoB28, which I need to finish for Horisont VI.
I started by glueing sand on in patches (to omit warping)
The keen observer will have noticed that there's only 3 bases; the Gondorian camp will be made up from a ruined mausoleum that the Dwarves have to sack to win the scenario, so it is not strictly nescessary for me to get the second Camp base done (although I shall try to do so when I have finished these 3).
This is how they looked like with the excess sand poured off.
I then glued sand to the bare areas, let dry, and painted the entire surface with thinned down PVA glue (consistency like milk), with a little washing up liquid added. This should seal the surface into a very hard crust.
When this is dry, I'm going to paint the bases with the same browns I used for the PSZ boards, then add some patches of flock, and I'll be set to go!
I hope to be able to paint a few crates and barrels to place on the baggage bases, and maybe a tent or two for the Dwarven camp - but we'll see about that - the actual bases, the Miracle Cards, and Boromir take precedence!
