Eight Feet of Duelling Ground

Finished!  Using the wrong kind of dip meant this project took twice as long as it should have.  But now, at long last, here’s a full eight feet of Hawai’ian roadway just waiting for some auto-duelling mayhem.  Look upon my works ye mighty wargamers and despair: It’s still a...

Quick Update

Quick update for now.  The post-crash Hawaiian highways have some paint back on the ground and some trees based up.   Nothing fancy. Not a fan of that greenish plastic for the fronds on the trees, but it’ll do for now....

The Grass is Always Greener

That took a lot more static grass than I’d hoped.  Static grass is probably the most expensive part of this terrain, and with all the non-playable surface on these tiles, it took a lot of it.   Two lane divided highways are possible with this set up,but only very...

Back to Square Six

After another fine night of drybrushing, we’re almost back to where we were before the varnish.  I’m really not at all happy with the way those shoulders no longer line up, but at this point it’s probably not worth the effort to re-do these highways yet again. Those are...

More Local Kine Terrain

As mentioned previously, these aren’t just any roads, they are local kine Hawaiian-style roads.  Red dirt, local signs, and of course, palm trees: Stolen straight from the kids’ dinosaur toy collection.  The gray stuff is kitty litter stuck on with thinned out white glue. With the same color spray...

Catch Up Time

It’s been a busy weekend what with the stuffing of the face and the last desperate gasp of football before the long dark off-season that doesn’t end until last August.  And yet, somehow, I still found time to start fixing last week’s horrible mishap with “The Dip”.  Nothing a little spray...

Whoops!

The state highways looked a bit cartoonish, what with the too bright colors.  The plan called for a dark stain that would seal the gravel, protect the paint, and tone down those colors.  The plan failed: Those turned out way darker than anticipated.  Looks like they need a few...

Road Construction Ahead

Just two quick shots of the roads in progress.  Looks like the markout crews in the 2050s are as accurate as they are today.  That red dirt looks really, really red, but these are Hawai’i roads; red is the color of most of the rich flatland soil.  So it...

Two For The Road(side)

Slapped together some stands for the billboards.  The ads were designed and printed on a standard printer then glued to each side of a…whatever you call that thick cardstock they use for mounting artwork.  It’s roughly 2mm thick and makes a great backing and decent stands for the billboards....

More Billboards

A couple of billboards ought to help break up the monotony of the autoduel patch of highway.  Keeping this a local affair I whipped up a handful of local kine ads. Things get a little complicated at this point.  Here in Hawaii, the home of your humble blogger, there’s...
