I've always wanted a Red Planet Battle Board since I saw a Chaos Blasted wasteland at Golden Demon 1991 24 years later I have one! I can't say it was an easy ride, I made some mistakes in the painting process - mainly thanks to dodgy varnishes.

With Ad-Mech potentially round the corner hopefully there will be a resurgence of Red Planet Battle Boards, they're all the rage.

Hopefully there will be some battle reports featuring 'Ferron Proxima' [my own red planet] coming soon.

In case you're interested the process was a texture spray first [which may have been a mistake as I'm not sure it stuck to the plastic as much as I'd hoped] then Red Oxide primer. Shadow washes with black emulsion, PVA and water mix. Then drybrushed highlights with cheap Vermilion art acrylic, then mixed with a 'Pumpkin' coloured Craft Acrylic for further highlights. Finally a splatter of Bonewhite for added detail and some Gale Force 9 yellow flock PVA'd into the crevices.

  1. Wow, looks amazing. Normally I find these boards to be a bit bland - not yours! Great colour scheme/ idea.

    * doffs his hat to you *

  2. Seriously a great job on that. I have one we have yet to paint and this gives me some ideas

  3. That colour scheme is incredible.
    Kudos to you.
