It was a sunny Saturday morning in 2016 and the weary wargamer (me) had been hatching a plan. I had all the raw materials for some terrain work and now saw an opportunity to forego the housework in favour of some groundwork. My felt gaming mat and some styrene hills were going to get a desert makeover and today the weather looked bright and dry enough for the repainting to take place out in the garden.
Thus was set the scene for an epic struggle between the time starved wargamer and the elements.
Order of Battle
One wargamer (wielding three cans of spray paint)
A Gentle Breeze (that might as well have been force 9 for the destruction it wrought)
|I used car spray paint for this project, selecting three beige colours that would compliment the sand colour of my felt game mat. I started with the darkest colour and worked my way through to the lightest until I was happy with the result. I also painted my collection of Styrene hills from TSS in the same style.|
|Needless to say using spray paints inside the house would have brought down the deserved wrath of my wife, so I decided to spray the mat and my styrene hills out in the garden. However the supposedly 'gentle' breeze played havoc with my plans.|
|And wind blow leaves and sycamore seeds didn't help either.|
I need a man cave, preferably shed shaped.
