My next GRAND project...
Well... I know things have been quiet at The House of War... as everyone knows, I've lost the actual Room of War to my son. Now, I have been doing a little work on his room (the photos here are from his mural in his new room, which we are about to move him into... the Africa ones were from his current "baby" room) but I do have another project planned!
A new Wargames table!!!
Well... sort of.
A beautiful breathtaking war-games table with customized buildings and bridges and waterways that might possibly dedicated to... Thomas the Train?
Yep. I am making a train table for my son, who ADORES Thomas the Train. It will actually be very similar to my old war-games table... build on rolling ikea shelves, custom foam, trees... just with a train set running about it!
Over this whole will be a pink foam world, with a few rivers cut out... basically the under board will be the level of the water, and the foam will the the land. The land will be sanded and painted, the rivers painted, and some detail done.
I then plan to base up some of my 25mm trees, and create a set of interchangeable buildings... basically, building a new "war-games" table!:)
I'll post the work as I go... it should look pretty wood, when it is all said and done!:D
