Our first campaign has been very one dimensional, so I've invested in some TTCombat mdf to add some height to our games. See the next post for images, as it's been a while since my last Yak :p

Very much WiP, lots of work still to be done, am just embarking on the first lighter mud layer drybrush. Then to add rust and the white areas will be hit with Tesseract glow, followed by UHU glue trails also painted in glow.

Not bad, per se. It's like I see all this glow but nothing for it to come from, I would love to see some weird vines and plants or maybe some barrels.
I've been playing Pacific Drive so I've grown quite fond of glowy plants lately.
And you're saying that like it's a bad thing. I dig it already, but I also DID spend an inordinate time with the first two incarnations of Borderlands.
 
I have started addin some tufts, though I need to pick up some extra ones to mix up the colours some. Still a long ways to go with the weathering, but the basic setup is there now. Any good leads on good looking vines?

Just vines?
That's pretty easy actually, O-scale foliage. There have been people making this stuff for train sets for decades.
If you want to do it yourself, get some of the REALLY cheap hemp rope (the kind thats got bits handing out everywhere) and give it a little bit of watered down white glue wash, put it in place and then paint as needed.

Looking like a fun board. I have a set of these and I feel like they might be a great fit for your board.

@Martini Henrie Nice! I do love seeing MDF Terrain getting some love - there’s a lot of GW plastic out there and it’s lovely stuff (just expensive) but even so it’s usually just painted in the usual grunge style which covers up all the detail anyway.

With MDF you can do grunge, you can do bright (lovely green pollution there) and you can add texture or other scratch built stuff as you wish - it still remains practical and reasonably affordable too.

I think if you pair that up with a nice battle mat - or go all out and make your own board with similar paintwork on* - then it’s gonna look even better!!

*What I’ve seen people do is use the sprues from the MDF, cut them up a bit and glue them to a base board and decorate that up in the same style as the terrain.

Hopefully picking a mat up tuesday, I'm building up my stock of scatter terrain. Slowly :p

Can confirm. Even completely 2D a nice background really adds to the flavor.
I made a point of picking up the Killzones just for the city board you can build with cards. Well, that and the terrain was dope as hell.
 
Sooo, in my limited and slipping sanity I've purchased another TTCombat Cloudbuster set with the intension of having a nice tall board that is fairly interesting. What I've found though is that the angles on the triangular floor sections are not condusive to linking the sets together outside of choosing one long edge only.

Has anyone sharing my insanity found a way around this or have any good ideas to help solve this conundrum? I'll post pictures later on to illustrate my issues. I wonder if adaptor pieces could be made to create 90 degree angles to ease joining up problems?
