Arkham Asylum Update - A Little More Done and Playable
This may not be going too quickly, but it is getting there step by step.
Arkham Asylum now has a finished board with added grass and bushes, some roof tiles, stone statues and a bit of metal work!
Before I go any further, did you enter the Arkham Giveaway on the Arkham City Limits facebook group?
The winner will be announced this afternoon so keep an eye out.
It can't be an Arkham Asylum post without the Arkham Batmobile right in the middle!
A few full shots of the board. The base is now complete and apart from the metals and window frames, the base colours are down as well.
This set is is ideal from the Arkham Scenarios, but not really for normal games so........
Using Knight Models MDF scenery I have tried to turn it into a more playable board for standard games.
I have chosen the Arkham signs as they have the logos and such on matching the towers. The billboards didn't really fit the setting.
The GCPD van makes a nice central bit of cover and ties in with cops vs inmates.
All of the crates and containers etc are the Wayne Enterprises ones only and not the Queen Industries versions. I have kept with these as Wayne is tied closely to Arkham and Queen isn't.
The bins and barriers are just a little bit of decoration really.
After a chat on the Arkham City Limits FB group, I tried a couple of different washed on the stone walls. On the left is a brown to make it look dirty and on the right is a basic black for shading.
Which do you prefer>
I have also been testing a way to get the roof to more of a worn terracotta looks.
The right is before wash, the left is after. A mix of flesh and red seemed to do the job quite well.
B-Man, Birdboy, Mr J and Harls have discovered that's it's not just the inmates that are insane at Arkham. So is the weather.
More on Arkham soon.
