Techniques & Tips for Card Stock & Foam Board Modeling

Image
Several years ago, I collected a number of cardstock kits and began building them… I used too much white glue in places. I tried to sop up the excess glue to only make things worse. I didn't spread the glue evenly. I missed gluing corners. My dull X-ACTO knife would leave a ragged edge on both foam board and cardstock. None of my walls were the right height. I sometimes found my work had been implemented in differing scales. The white cardstock backing would show through on corners and joints. Windows went in upside down. Card stock slipped when I was cutting it – ruining the image. Scoring a fold line was sometimes the same as cutting it. Warping abounded on all my large foam board components. Joining walls sometimes ended up matching at the top but not at the bottom or vice versa.

Derby World Wargames, Show 2016

Image
I have just come back from Derby World Wargames at Castle Donington. Hosted by Warlord Games, KR Multicases and the Derby Wargames Associates. Where me and Malcolm were helping support fellow club (Grimsby Wargames Society) members Steve & Andy who were running The Four Days Battle of 1666 between the English and Dutch navies.  I took loads of pictures but unfortunately something happened to them and they're all ruined. However you can see some pictures over at the club website of the game Anyway here's the stuff I bought.  A couple of  Dropzone Commander books.  A couple of starter Marian Roman army packs from  Pendraken Miniatures .  A few skeletons from Irregular Miniatures .  And a bag of scatter material. And some N gauge fences from the bring and buy. Overall I had a really good day  and will most certainly be going back next year hopefully with a functioning camera.
