Mustering of the Kabal - Phase 1 of Display Board

Heya all and welcome back!

Managed to get a little bit of terrain for the display board done or to be exact all the hills. Cutting styrofoam with a foam cutter is pretty awesome and unnaturally addictive.


I was a little lost when it comes to cutting foam, as I do not know how to do the texture for rocks. But after a while of experimenting, I managed to pull it off and I must say that it looks pretty natural now.

I realized that my idea of a display board would be better served with a little rock plateau that would act as a point where my HQ would stand, and thus I carved one out to fulfill the purpose.

Creating the rocky slope from the second plateau to the first one proved to be a rather difficult challenge, as I do not know how much do I have to cut to make it blend seamlessly to the first platform.

And here is the dry fit of all the vehicles in my default 1750 pts list.  Surprisingly everything fits and I have enough space for a 2k army even with the infantry marching below. I actually am fond of the negative space that I could pull off, even with the infantry in tow (not that I have much infantry to begin with). Of course different builds could be made and be put on the display  board, and I have not even added in the other stuff, which may or may not be included in the board.

I will see how things go for now, and take my time on this undertaking. See ya all next time!
