The Great Yu-Jing Board, Part One

My friend Matt asked if I would take on a pretty big terrain project for a tournament at our favorite shop, Shiv Games. The project includes a whole bunch of MDF buildings from Warsenal, a company out of Florida that makes some of the nicest laser-cut projects I have ever set my eyes on.

I have finished two of the pieces so far, but there are some challenges to MDF terrain that put me on a pretty steep learning curve: first, you really shouldn’t paint the model after it’s been glued together, and you really can’t hold it together for painting without glue.

Today I put together this little shop, and realized that I could tape the insides of the building together to hold the whole thing together, which will help me not only prime the model, but take parts of it together when I don’t want to spend a lot of extra time masking off all the nooks and crannies. It’s a pretty sweet little building, and I’ll post progress shots of it as I work on it.
