High Elf Port Board : ハイエルフの港ボード PART 5

<< High Elf Port Board : ハイエルフの港ボード PART 4

I've been taking a week or so away from the board-building, to put together my pirate warband, and even get a game or two in (or 4!) on the still-unfinished board. Really good fun! Having said that, Euan's dark elves have kicked my ass repeatedly!!

今週、ボード作業からちょっと離れました。理由は簡単。。。ウォーバンドを作りたかったですからね!そして、悠安くん(「ゆあん」の漢字はカッコいいでしょ)と二人で何回もゲームしました。僕はまだ勝っていませんが。。。本当に小さいゲームは楽しいよね!

In the photo below you can see how the board was looking at the start of this week -  with the main features in their proper places. The Bloody Slayer ship looks gorgeous in the top left corner, and makes an excellent strongpoint. Of course I haven't even started on the elven buildings yet (not even the lighthouse!), but you can see where we substituted in a papercraft one. The central park area has just enough space for 3 autumnal trees, in between the two foot-traffic bridges. Speaking of which...

月曜日ぐらいの状態は以下の写真でご覧できます。いいよね。完成した船はぴったりのサイズで、ゲーム中で強いベースでも使えます。真ん中に小さい公園も見えます。建物はまだ全然できていませんが、ペーパークラフトも見合うでしょ?


I ordered two of the Thomarillion elven bridges from Germany, and even unpainted they look awesome. The central sections are made from heavy dental plaster (I think), and even though one bridge unfortunately cracked in transit, the wooden sides help to give it enough strength to be easily fixable. They will fit very well with the more ornate parts of the board I have planned - plus models can actually stand up on the steps. Hurrah!

そして、ドイツから橋を2個注文しました。形的にはちょうどいいと思います。フィギュアもちゃんと立てるし、宮尾さん、いいおすすめでした。ありがとう!


For the last few days, I have been creating the block and paving patterns for the dock board. The first task was to find an easy way to stamp a simple block pattern in the sides of the docks. I stole a couple of Euan's lego blocks and filed the sides a little sharper, then simply pushed the block lightly into the foam, giving a nice solid appearance to the sides. Next I had to cover the ground surfaces of the board with some kind of pattern. I didn't particularly want to use regular brick patterns, as I thought perhaps those softy Elves would just die of the shame! After a little googling, I settled on this interesting shell pattern, so I had to set about making a stamp outline for it, from foam and thick card. Seeing the effect once the whole board was stamped was quite cool - it really looks rather nautical, suggesting seashells, fish-scales or maybe waves - all of which should tie in nicely with the sea-guard uniforms of the elven harbour guard.

それからボード作業に戻りました。レゴのブロックで大きいレンガの模様を壁に押し続けました。次は港の地面のために貝の形のスタンプをカードとフォームで作りました。ボードの壁と地面を全部スタンプすると結構面白いエフェクトが出ました。エルフ港のボードですから、貝殻、魚の肌、海の波のデザインなら似合うと思う。


The photo below shows a little curved area I've marked out for the central grassy 'park'. A stepped foot bridge will go to either side of this, and I am also planning some benches and torch sconces, plus the low wall (the black foam strip in the pics) at the back.

以下の写真は公園の地域となります。木と腰壁とベンチをそこに入れる予定です。


This afternoon I added the top slabs to the thick circular wall. The main building complex will go right where that elf is standing, but wil be removable so that we can swap things around a little. The steps are also finished, and make a great bit of multi-level cover to sneak around. Next step will be to spray the board (in a pale sea-stone, I think), so I have some colour testing to do first!!!

ボード端っこにある階段もできました。そのハイエルフが立っている所はメインの建物になりますので、その回りに厚い腰壁も作りました。来週のお仕事はボードと海のペイントです。。。


 

Finally, I wanted to put in a photo of some little bits I found in a craftshop yesterday. I thought perhaps I could combine the golden flower bits with the 40K wall spikes to make some ornamental lights, to dot around the board. What do you think? The heavy studs (and I got some funny looks buying those) will become the dockside bollards for tying up ships.

最後に、昨日クラフト店で買ったビッツはどうですか?壁の上に照明をつけようと思ったので、エルフっぽい照明がいいよね。

Depending how you paint it, this could also be an awesome entrance was to a 40k cathedral~

Hah - too late! The paint is already dry on this board (without its buildings), and it's definitely not grimdark enough for 40K. The actual colour is pretty close to the creamy seastone of the foam, which at least should hide dents a little.

High Elf buildings tend to look good (I think) in creams drybrushed lightly with white, and thankfully it's not too hard to paint.

The board is absolutely beautiful mate. A real pleasure to play on! Im looking forward to you getting around to the bridge, as my beasties dont like getting their fur wet.
