No game last night, and nothing on the cards (Malifaux pun for you!) until the back end of the month – a visit to Bull, after Salute 2012 weekend, to face McMourning. I got to thinking more about completing my gaming board vision that I wrote about in an earlier post.
I went back to some of my earlier resources, blog images, photos of lamp posts… even episodes of Sherlock Holmes. I have my crossroad board and this gives me four large triangle shapes to fill with terrain, then additional terrain littering the streets. I have already decided that one triangle will made up from GW's Garden of Morr box set – a fantastic plastic graveyard kit – and I have my plastic GW wood to complement this and build something quite stunning and creepy.
A quick computer-based sketch (above) illustrates what I have in mind. The triangle will be made up of a warehouse building and delivery yard. Both building and yard will have large double width entrances which will be obscured by boxes, barrels, etc. There will also be a back door opening out onto the adjacent street, for a quick exit/ pincer attack, and this too will be obscured from the main bay doors by boxes. In addition to this I hope to add a small mezzanine floor (tinted brown), accessible by ladders in the corner of the warehouse.
This is all fine and dandy but will it ever see the light of day? I have managed to book in a day to myself on Friday so should get the foundations for this project started. More to come.
