Cities of Death- Hawk Urban Battle Boards WIP Dec 13

It’s been a while since I have updated my progress on the Games and Gears Hawk Urban Battle Board.  I now have two tiles completed and here is how they look.


Normally when a paint dries out I get frustrated.  This time around I cheered when the Dawnstone pot dried up.  It made it a lot easier to dry brush the board.  Longbeard Grey was the final colour on the concrete.  The brick also received some drybrush treatment.  For the grass I took alternate shades of green and did some loose brush strokes.

I have four more tiles to complete.  I will paint some more Carcharodons and use up the current pot of Dawnstone.  Fingers crossed the paint will dry up and I will complete as many boards as possible.


Here are the comparable photos from the previous update.

I finally received the Games and Gears Anima Battle Boards.  I’ll post a video review on that set eventually.  The review is not favourable.  I don’t think the boards were primed.  It looks like it was shaded or inked on non-primed board with maybe a slight touch of drybrushing.  For the Kickstarter price I find the product acceptable.  For the retail price, take my advice and invest your money elsewhere.  The Anima boards were available to the public in August and I got mine in November.  The Battle Boards campaign has been a public relations nightmare filled with many empty promises.  I purchased my two sets for less money compared to the retail price of one set advertised on the site.
