Village Terrain: Housing the Wild Picts!

Recommended Posts

I just wrapped up a project I’ve been tinkering with, on and off, for about a month. Terrain for the the Pict Village board! 

A long time ago I built the boma fencing and foliage terrain for this board. I made that for 2 reasons; thematic and visual immersion is something I love about boardgaming, and also to help define the somewhat confusing gameplay areas for this board. The physical fencing made it much more clear where your minis can and cannot go. I always thought it’d be fun to build the huts as well.

When I built that original terrain I had really no clue how to approach this kind of crafting (there is a thread on here about that old project). Hell, I was fairly new to miniature painting as well. Now, years later, I kind of shudder at some of my old sloppy mini painting (I like to think I’m a little better now) and I’ve studied up a little on the world of tabletop terrain making. So, these huts are just my second foray into that world. I first made some blasted open doors for the game Nemesis after I painted the plastic doors that came in the second wave of that game. I got myself a new glue gun (Surebonder), some Aleene’s Tacky glue, Mod Podge, E6000 glue, dollar store foam board, a box of miniature skulls from Citadel, coffee stir sticks, bamboo skewers, an Olfa Knife, a cutting mat, and I got busy! Here’s some working shots and some finished pics:

Wow, that is awesome! It must be so fun to play on a board like that.

Yeah.... It will be fun to play on this board. But, given the state of things, I haven’t had game night since finishing the build. My wife likes games in general, and enjoys games like Ticket to Ride and Pandemic (which we just haven’t had the urge to play lately 🤔), but Conan wouldn’t be her jam... I’ve moved on to working on building terrain for the ruined castle board for now. By the time game night happens again I hope to have a few boards with fully rendered terrain to choose from! Terrain crafting has proven to be a fantastic hobby for me during our collective quarantine woes.  Stay safe out there everyone!
