I was using plaster. I have a good amount of pieces that I can use to redo what was broken. I am not too worried about it.

Due to the set back and the lost time I decided to change how this board will be made. I can use all the casts I have made to date but the change will greatly reduce the amount of time needed to make the board.

Instead of having the "floor" of the table be made up of 3x6 or 6x6 pieces etc., I will use the textured wallpaper I purchased for the walls of each building. This will greatly reduce the number of cast I need to do i.e. time.

I will use an earlier concept for the board's Industrial terrain and use CD sized bases for smaller pieces of terrain. The CD will be covered with the same textured wallpaper to "blend" in with the 4x4 foam table floor. Larger pieces will require plastic board of different sizes (rectangular/square).

This would allow the terrain produced to be used on other boards as well.

I will have to start soon so I can work out any issues that might arise.

Decided the floor will now be made up of grey fabric or a grey gaming mat. Working on casting still.

Yes thanks, the initial casting is completed. I have enough to make the first 16 X 16 piece now plus a good amount extra to build pieces I can swap in/out. I also bought a cool 4 gun anti aircraft emplacement I plan on using for the next 16 x 16 piece of terrain. It is progressing slowly (especially during the holidays). I also have a digital camera for hobby use only since Julie and I bought a new one for the family so I can post pictures easier. I have the first layout completed on excell and will have to start to build it from floor level up. I also have the flat piece of plastic board I will use as its base. I decided on the color scheme and bought the initial spray cans of primer for it.

Floor is complete - waiting on primer. Walls are 3/4 done, catwalk 100% done, etc. I have all the casting completed and now just need to put it all together. I changed my e-mail so I will have to open a new account to post pics. What service does everyone use to post pics from the internet?

My choice is photobucket. It works well enough.

Lockerz is pretty good.

I find photobucket and imageshack can run into problems when posting images on forums.

Here is a list of photo sharing sites with a feature comparison.

looking forward to more pics
