Infinity Terrain Factory Build

We got overzealous once again and decided to see how large of a building we could actually construct. After a great deal of cutting of foam board, cursing, and dulled exacto blades we finished the first floor. Two lessons learned: ALWAYS PLAN YOUR BUILD AHEAD OF TIME. Also: cut windows and doors into the walls BEFORE gluing them in place. Trust me on this.

Infinity Terrain Vendor Booth

Unfortunately I don't have any WIP shots of this, as I didn't know we actually had a blog until fairly recently. The base of this piece is a 1'x1' square of MDF board. The step is made from foam board edged in plasticard strips. The booth itself is a foam board skeleton edged in plasticard. The most time-consuming part by far were the hexagonal paving stones. They were made by gluing a hex gridded paper to cardstock and cutting them out with a pair of scissors. Monotonous, but worth it. Nothing says 'It's the future.' like hexagonal paving stones.

This piece has since been primered grey and is awaiting its turn at the airbrush station. I plan on printing out an awning on regular printer paper, coating it with watered down PVA and draping it over the struts.

Malifaux Train Station

First we started with a 3x3 sheet of pink foam, adding two platforms on either side and a divider in the middle also with pink foam. We then covered the platforms and divider with a cobblestone mat that was purchased from Michael's the mat was first affixed with wood glue but the back of the mat was too glossy and pealed up, so we decided liquid nails would be much better. And it was.
