Hobby Update: Death Display Board

The display board for Warzone 2019 is complete. This was a bit tougher that I thought it would be. I did a very basic paint job on the board, but there were a bunch of little details on the Sigmarite Mausoleum that I had to do. Also one the board was built it was hard getting the correct angle with the paint brush at time. Also the construction and the flock portions of the build were completed in my garage were the relative temperature was like 110. It was like building in a sauna. “got to love Houston in the summer!”

I am happy with my design and execution, yes things could always have been done better, however I am on a time crunch, only 3 days till the tournament. I do like the LED light idea, it came out good. It would have been nice to spend a little more time on the rock wall and building to bring out more detail and depth. I have set up the models and I feel it is a bit crowded for my taste, but it fits all 93 models. When I planned all the tombstones out I left room for at least 4, 130mm models. Just in case I want to build a Flesh Eater courts Gristlegore army.

It is about 2×2, it would be awesome to make 5 more tiles to complete a full table, “not going to happen”.

If I was to do it again one thing that I would do is take the time to make a step by step video series. I learn a ton building this and it would have been nice to share.
