Now one of the issues about the public sector cuts is that it has forced 'Estates' to rationalise the, well estate. Subsequently the garage at our place has been filled with broken furniture (that's the criminal bit, the sheer volume of stuff!) So I liberated a quad of broken MDF cupboard walls and decided to make a gaming board. I did not have a great deal of time as I was out on a stag do (more anon). So here it is.
|The tools. Top middle are some Registration Plate Screws|
|The VRM Screws go into the base. this raises it above the table and makes it easier to move, if the games not finished and protects the dining table.|
|Measure and cut the railway scenic grass (about £3-4 from a model shop)|
|Roll out the 'grass'|
|Ruffle it a bit for texture|
|I've done 4 to give the smaller boards a bit of variety. Problem is when all together it looks a bit too checkered. But a wargaming board for less then a tenner.|
That was it for the day. The stag do went too well and I tripped (?) on the way home. Now my left knee is the size of a football. Hey self inflicted wounds I can't complain, just got to get on with it.
Doubt if I'll anything done this week either, ongoing work project is maddness ('til Feb) and the wedding is Saturday. Tie me in 'bubble-wrap' and let me loose.
Have a good week folks.
