Today we have the terrain that I managed to get completed in January. None of the usual sort of thing – instead I managed to start and finish 18 of my Secret Weapon Tablescapes tiles, from that Kickstarter campaign oh so long ago. They are very much something that I’ve wanted to get painted for years, and unfortunately the combination of limited work space, work making it difficult to mentally “spin up” enough to just spend time focused on getthing larger projects like this done due to the large number of tiles and repetitive nature of the project.
I was fortunate enough this past January so that the whole Crosis Protocol enthusiasm thing was enough to help me to get these shown tiles done from start to finish. Unfortunately, there still lies the small matter of all of the road sections, all still very much WIP – So I need to really get that enthusiasm going again since I’ve been back at work. I know that there are people out there who can paint a set of tiles like this in an afternoon. I’m not one of them
I have one 16-tile set of the Urban Streets – Clean, one 16-tile set of the Urban Streets – Damaged, and one 4-tile “Display Board” set of the Urban Streets – Damaged. I also have the 16-tile sets of the Ruined Temple and Rolling Hills themes, and as you can see here, I nicked 2 of the Ruined Temple tiles to use as a pair of “Demolition Site” tiles to give a bit more variety to my layouts. Here you can see a theoretical Marvel Crisis Protcol battle in action.
Similarly, I also have a pair of the Rolling Fields set picked out to turn into a pair of “Parkland” tiles to provide options for layouts with a bit of extra colour. I’m looking forward to having time to get the roads finished. Hopefully sooner than later!
The 36″x36″ layout of standard Crisis Protocol games will allow for a lot of variety even with the tiles I already have done – but obviously it’ll be far more aesthetically pleasing once there are roads to mix in! These 18 tiles are the last thing I have to show for the January component of Dave Stone’s Paint what You Got challenge.
