We, in this case the Scandinavian Ladies, will have a participation game at this year’s Gothcon, and this time it will be Dien Bien Phu in 28mm scale and using the Chain of Command rules.
Thomas is the grand master of DBP and is in charge of everything, and I’m in the position of just following orders. One of the orders is to paint some Viet Cong soldiers, and they are bought and on their way (excellent stuff, that, as they can be used in pulp games also)
|Painting the brown fleece to get something that looks like a muddy and shot-up field.|
Another order was get some terrain finished. The best way to do that is to have a terrain-making-day and we chose a sunny and beautiful day to hole up in my cellar with MDF, filler, paint, fleece, foamboard, hot-glue gun, cork and whatnot.
|The finshed thing, ready for some serious action.|
An afternoon with a few tasty beers and without any burnt fingers got us (me, Thomas and Henke) a finished ground-cover and some started rice-paddies and bamboo-groves.
|Thomas hot-gluing foam-board sides to cork-sheets (the excellent and cheap AVSKILD cork place mat from IKEA) to form the outlines of a rice paddy|
|Filler and a pre-paddy.|
|And with some filler applied with a brush it starts to look interesting. Add a crater or two and we start to get an idea on what to expect.|
|Bases for the bamboo-groves and also for stands of barbed wire|
Thomas got the bamboo-not-groves-yet while I got to finish the rice-paddies. Stay tuned for more on that soon.
