I’ve decided not to do Armies on Parade with my Daemons. It’d be nice to do, and I think they’d do well… but I can’t bring myself to build a second display board for them. I mean, blah.
While waiting on some wash on the Furnace to dry, I broke out the graph paper and started sketching out the plan for the Skaven board that I do need to build.
I’ll be planning to mount this to the same breakfast tray I use with my Daemon board, which means I need to account for where I’m going to bolt the board to the tray. That’s what those nipple-looking things are: where I’ll drill through the board and then disguise it somehow.
Planning to have a tiered hill fill the back left quarter or so. I’ll try to make it look natural, while making sure I’ve got 5″-6″ on each tier (so I can fit a ranked unit on it). The back right will have a few stalagmites and a river will run down the right side. Characters (who aren’t surfing on a Plague Furnace) will be gathered around a block of warpstone or a well (like this) or something. Alternatively, I could scoot everything forward and build a neat looking, rickety bell tower I’ve been noodling over (using the Warp-Lightning Cannon frame and a left over Screaming Bell bell) in the middle.
Here’s the plan, with details inked in. The shape of the tray’s in red.
