Display Boards

We are very excited to announce that we are now able to offer custom display boards.  These can be in pretty much any size you wish, 24″ x 24″ for armies on parade, 12″ x 18″ for the local tournament scene, or any other sizes and shapes you can think of.  We can do a variety of themes from snowy tundra, war-torn battlefield, forest glade, streams, hive worlds, alien planets, etc.

I really enjoy making display boards as basing miniatures is one of my favorite parts of commission painting, and a display board is just a very large base.  For the Space Wolves snow board I used a serving tray from target as the base.  This provides support and it gives it handles along the side.  I used insulation foam board as the base, and pine bark chips for the rock formations.  Small sized aquarium gravel was used for the rock patches.  I also used wall spackle to give the board texture.

I painted the board up using acrylic paints, and added a number of home made flock mixes (coming soon to the hobby tutorials!), mosses and then finally some homemade snow.  After that I added some tufts and then the whole thing was matte sealed.

 

I’m also currently working on a display board for my Sylvaneth Army for NOVA.  This will feature a really cool Great Deku Tree style forest spirit, a stream, waterfall, foot bridge, trees, a cave, ponds and a number of other features on a 24″ x 36″ board.  Here are some WIP sneak peeks.  -Amanda
