Time to actually start work on my Armies on Parade board! I know it's been a fair while since I posted about entering my Space Wolves into this years competition, but to be honest, most of that wait was finding an appropriate board to use. Luckily, my buddy was able to get me a board via his work, so with my board in hand, lets see what we can come up with!
The initial plan was to have a building at the back of the board with some Long Fangs in it and then the rest of the army charging forward at the front. On reflection, I think that will be a little one dimensional, so with a look over my cityfight terrain, I found my two buildings that have a bridge between them...
With this set up I can have my two Long Fang units in the buildings and the Grey Hunters at the front as envisioned, but when the buildings are together I have a spare section at the back of the board. I was thinking I would have all my Fenrisian Wolves charging at the back and under the bridge following the Hunters into battle! I think it will add a sort of 3D effect to the board and make it a lot more interesting!
The first job will be to get some cork and make the surface of the board match my armies urban rubble bases. I am planning on insetting the buildings into the cork to help blend them in, but we will see how that goes. More to come soon!
