Thanks for the kind comments, JoaoS! What a Face
I'm sure you've noticed with your own FINE works that pieces tend to gain details as you progress. I try not to rush things too much as the longer it takes the more intricate it becomes. I'm taking a break now to remove a rather thick patch of super glued Woodland Scenics turf & a layer of skin from a finger tip...one must suffer for one's art, no?! clown

Trees equal woodland fingers. That is truth.

Great update Al. The board is progressing by heaps and fungi.

Niiiiiiice

You know what this board needs?

Some square tiles, so you can cover it all up.

Then have a small warband of figures move along the board, and as they advance, they start to 'see' where they're going, so you can take away tile per tile.
As the tiles are removed, all kinds of nasties appear which they'll have to overcome.

A bit like those PC RPGs from back in the days (Icewind dale, anyone?)

Extra rules can be triggered, like e.g. a spell cast from/to within X inches from a mushroom might just accidentally summon extra nasties, or someone dying in the vicinity of a mushroom, and so on.

The downside will be finding tiles that fit, what with all those trees and different heights

Thanks for the comments, Guys! They make waking up a less negative experience...to a degree. What a Face

@Quase: I once ran a Ravenloft game with the room darkened. The only illumination was a small penlight suspended above the Adventurers to simulate the torch light efect. The result was pretty cool & quite suspenseful, but it eventually lost out to the need to find the chips & dips. clown

And so we see, that in wargaming, just as in real life, it is all about getting your priorities straight

The first of a couple of Spooky Woods Boards is mostly done...there's always something to add. OH BABY!
To celebrate the Joyous Occasion, HERE FOR YOUR EDIFICATION & ENTERTAINMENT ARE A GALLERY OF TRULY MEDIOCRE PHOTOS OF NO PARTICULAR ARTISTIC WORTH:

Combo Heep was here just a moment ago to show you around...Oh Well:


The Long View:


It's a Long, Long Road...





Some Vulture Views:





Tomorrow, unless you object strenuously enough, I'll try to post some closeups.
In the interim, your kind commentary is once more requested. clown

Thanks, V.K.! I'm glad you're enjoying the project. What a Face
Whenever I think of "the project", I envision a low income housing construction in a slum area...this is a scarier form of that idea. clown

Dazzlingly fantastic!

Nothing much more to say than what I said already!
My favourite pic is the one of the long road, where you see nothing but your table.

Any chance of having people/creatures populate the table for when you'll be taking those close-ups?

I agree; the shots that exclude the area surrounding the board are the most atmospheric...arty is good.

That is an EXCELLENT suggestion...I'll pick out some appropriate minis. clown

As promised, or threatened if you prefer, I have the first photos of a Group of Hunters braving the Perils of the Spooky Woods...it really should have a proper name...like Spooky Woods in German...names in German seems to sound ominous for some reason or other.

Zooming in on The Hunters entering The Woods:








Bringing up the rear has dangers of its own:


Last seen leaving The Road:




I think that The Woods may prove to be a major source of entertainment...at least for moi. That aside, your kind comments would be most welcome..or you can break an Old Man's heart. clown

ADDENDUM: for the Folk that don't visit the Scenery Section, I started a Thread that will feature my Little Rogues in the Spooky Woods & other settings:

Thanks for the kind comments & the original idea, Quase. Miniatures & appropriate terrain do seen to feed off each other, making each better than they would be separately. I now have the urge to produce yet more scenes & the characters to inhabit them...feedback & motivation feed off each other as well. What a Face

For The O'Leary Project or rather my friend, Anne O'Leary's Diorama, a new & hitherto unclassified Mushroom has been discovered...well fabricated out of Green Stuff & stuff is you want to get picky. SO without further ado, the sentient Mycoleria:



AND some Sentient Toadstools that claim to be part of The Project:






As always your kind commentary is requested...kind of. clown

The new guys have kind of a Magnificent Seven vibe to them. Especially the ones with caps. Very interesting...Suspect

Now that you mention it, the wide caps do look like sombreros..."we don't have to show you any stinking badges". Okay that's The Treasure of Sierra Madre, but you get the idea. Suspect
The diorama involves some Ballerinas chasing a Goblin around the Mushroom Patch/Garden. The minis are from Tom Meier's Thunderbolt Mountain line. clown
