Wreck Age: Table wip


 
And so, the working adventure begins in earnest.

As mentioned in the previous post, I am all in with Hyacinth Games. One of my first tasks at hand is to re-work various aspects of the demonstration table that the fellows made for AdeptiCon this year. Obviously, this is one-hundred percent within my comfort zone.

These are two 2’x3’ tables that combine to a single 3’x4’ demo station and that are wonderfully easy to transport and store. The edges built up around the outside are fantastically protective when stored, one end up on the other. It’s a brilliant idea that I wish I had come up with myself (doh).

Of course, time is pressing on this little project. I picked this up Sunday and it needs to be fully ready by this Saturday morning, when we will be running a sequence of demonstration games of Wreck Age at Galactic Force Games (1121 W Belmont Ave, here in Chicago. The glory begins at 1:00pm if you are free and easy). Never a dull moment round here, let me tell you.

So, just a matter of days to get this broken down, amended, repainted, and revived completely. Though I forgot to take a photo of the “before” image (which would have been useful in this wip post), the basic gist is that I need to make the rocks that had been rather smooth a bit more rocky, to make the grit a bit more gritty, and to repaint all the dusty bits a bit more dusty. All good. I have that in me.

There were also a few weakened screws and whatnot to replace in the border and general structure. There always are.

Once all that is sorted, I am hoping to re-apply a bit of resin to recreate the very cool water effects that are now buried beneath the new rocks and gritty grit. In sum, I hope that by tomorrow at this time, you would not even be able to recognize this table. Fingers crossed.

Looking good there, chief.

Looks good. Can't wait to see it when it's redone :)

It does look good, so the two protective borders screw together to make the whole thing solid?

Chhhiiicaaago you say? I've never been to Galactic Force Games. I'll do my darndest to make it out.

Looks very nice.

@ Vlad. I need teammates perhaps?

@ Son of Dorn. Cheers.

@ Mik. The two halves can be joined, but generally they just sit one against the other. The pieces are heavy enough that it would take really aggressive bosh to split them again.

@ Mattias Darrow. Indeed. I hope to see you there (I'll be the bald guy with glasses). Introduce yourself to me and I'll be sure to have something handy for you.

@ Political Officer Krad. Thank you very much.

Cheers for the support, one and all!
