It almost here! I'm talking about the 2017 Build season! This year we are more organized than we have ever been before (it was not that difficult a feat so hold your applause) and it's a good thing since we have a lot to do. We can use all the help we can get, so if you are interested let me know!
For my first installment of 2017 I would like to start with some build instructions for one of the many projects we are doing this year. Line of sight blockers for Age of Sigmar. Here is the step by step guide for what we are building!
These are the instructions for building the 2017 Standard LOS blocking terrain for Age of Sigmar and any other system that needs them.
1. 2” Foam (Models are on larger bases than they used to be.)
2. Thin disk (bought at Michael’s)
4. Thick Card Stock
5. Hot Wire cutter (Table top and hand held)
6. Dull Pencil
7. Utility Knife
Step 1. PREP
Cut out three 6” by 4” rectangles (Try to make them as straight as possible)
Step 2. THE WALS
On two of the 6x4 rectangles. Use the Wire cutter to cut an angle starting 2 to 3 inches along the 6” side going to the 6th inch of the other side (See Picture below.) You can also angle the edges along this cut to make step 3 easier.
Step 3. THE WALLS
Using your fingers pinch out an irregular pattern on the cut out area (See picture below)
Step 4. THE CORNER
Take the last rectangle and cut it in half longways so that you have 2 pieces 6” by 2” by 2”
No Picture for this one
Step 5. THE CORNER
Take one of these and trim it to 4.5 inches long/tall. Pinch off foam around the top as seen in the picture below.
Step 6. DRY FIT
Put the pieces together and make sure they fit. It should look something like this.
Step 7. OUTER BRICKWORK
Use the table Hot wire cutter to make lines horizontal to the 6” length 1 “apart and the sharpie to mark vertical lines every 2” to make a brick pattern
Step 8. FINISHING THE BRICK
Use the handheld cutter (Or a dull Pencil) to make the vertical lines
Step 9. THE BASE
Take the disk base and make sure the pieces fit properly. Once satisfied glue them in place.
Step 10. INNER LEDGE
Take the last piece of 6” x 2” x 2” foam and angle it the same was as step 2. Then pinch off foam as in step 3. Once complete glue it in as seen in the pic below.
Step 12. TRIM AND DETAILS
Make (2) 2 .5” x 4” strips of Card stock and glue them where the walls meet the corner. (Optional) Next make two patterns out of cardstock for corner decorations. I chose a Hammer and a lightning bolt (AoS Theme) or you can leave them blank
Here is what it looks like with models on it.
All that is left is sand paint and flock! I will have instructions for that soon.
Till next time…
