Ok, here's a picture of the extruded polystyrene (styrofoam) that will form the basis for the Heraclea demo game at Partizan. Still need trimming up; had to cut them in half outside the builders merchant - they can't do it 'cos of 'elf 'n safety...
The boards need a river running across about a third of the way up and the rest of the surface texturing.
At the moment I'm thinking of PVA and sand with lots of paint, probably three layers working light to dark, with a liberal sprinkling of patchy static grass. Not sure wether to mix up some serious goop or stick and paint.
Any advice in methodology welcome (don't forget the river!)
