Great looking terrain there.

A lot of painstaking work on the cobbles, I bet they were a pain, but looking good.

Great work. I love your board. What did you use underneath the foam to help it to keep it's shape? What size is the board? Looking forward to seeing more pictures.

Thanks for the warm welcome!

The cobblestone board is 4' x 4' standard. It took two guys two eight hour sessions to make the cobblestone and to paint it, and then one small session to put the styreneboard on a MDF board. Along with the MDF board there is wooden ledges around (not in the photos), which makes it sturdy enough to handle.

I was sceptical at first about making the cobble stone but my friend convinced me. It didnt take as long as I thought and the result is good I think.

THIS is the real deal!! I've been looking for the best possible solutions out there to create a realistic and attractive board for my urban settings. This is the closest I found to what I want. Amazing work, terrific Mordheimish feel! Love the stonework and all the houses and other terrain you and your pals created!

I agree wholeheartedly with Joao. The way this has been done is nothing short of fantastic. Looking forwards to harnessing the approach with similar techniques in a two-man drawing & scoring styrene session. Ha ha.

Everybody has pretty much said it but I feel the need to compliment you and your friend for the excellent stonework on your "cobblestone" board !

I can only imagine that the process that went into the project may have been both tedious and meticulous but I have always believed that anything worth doing is worth the effort.

Great Job!
