PostSubject: Foamboard   Tue 19 Jul 2011 - 7:15

Hi folks!

Im new here. Ive been gaming a while but now im giving Mordheim a second chance. me and my gaming buddies will make lots of terrain. currently we are using old cardboard boxes as basis for the walls of houses, but we would like to change that to foamboard, but none of us knows what type of stores would sell it, lol. We have pink styrofoam, but its 50 mm thick and its way too much work to cleave it in to ~5mm thickness.

what kinds of stores would have these thinner foam boards? what is it "really" used for? if any one knows where i can buy it in Sweden ill kiss your feet Razz

have a nice day!

Places that sell art-related things such as paint, frames and the likes. Thats where I have found it - in Denmark at least Smile

Maikacir is right - art materials shops.

The local university has a "Student Union" shop that sells it too.

Not sure what the equivalent would be in Ikea land but office supply stores around here like Staples sell it as well. I actually like going there because they carry the black foamcore which I find I like more than white because it's less likely to show if the paint chips.

Oh yes Drayven, I meant to say that too but... y' know... Sleep

Black foamboard is totally worth the extra cost!

If you are in the right areas, dollar stores carry them. Much cheaper then an art store. Specifically the chain Dollar Tree sells them, and you can buy in bulk from their website, however you have to buy 50 of them for $50, so there's that.
