Ryan, the terrain looks incredible.  I cant wit to see it with the trees and such.
Paul multiple coats will get rid of the wood texture.
Add a layer of primer then re-spray with the black. The primer should be heavier and fill in the grain of the wood.

Looking great guys!!!

Ok. The walls are constructed. They just need painting and decorating. Chewie's walls are primed and ready for a new coat of black. Which side of the walls is facing the outside where the grasslands are?

Walls are painted and steel cross beams are being added. I want to print out some decals of graffitte for the outside of the wall. (kind of a Berlin wall feel) Just need to know what side is outside.

Can't be done. I was in a hurry then because I was trying to get it all done by 27th of April, becasue I knew if I didn't that it would be late. When I glued it and weighted it, I came backa few hours later and noticed it was backwards. Without destroying it I couldn't have removed it. Luckily it isn't a huge difference between the two sides so it should be alright.

Yah, sounds like it's not worth the risk.

Got the 9" Emporer figure from ebay today. I'll paint him up and make a stand for him. The walls are done except for some crossbeam detail on one of the wood boxes. I'll get pictures up as soon as I can.

Good to hear. The terrain is 100% done now, I got the water poured and the waterfall attached today. I've just got to find a big old box and mail it out via DHL tomorrow.

Have you figured out the size of the city board we need? What should I buy?

My wife just got home last night and hasn't unpacked the camera. I should be able to get pictures up tonight. Also the Emporer is painted a nice metalic shiny black. He stands on a large rectangle blood red base.

Can't wait to see, Paul!  I'm already very impressed by the contributions I've seen so far on this thread, and I just feel sorry that I didn't have more time to contribute more.  Looking forward to seeing the whole thing live in 3D at the con, too!

All in all, it's just a another brick in the wall....








As you can see one wall still needs its crossbeams. I just ran out of wood before my wife and kids returned. I'll have that one finished before the show.
