My 40k BATTLE ZONE MORTALIS board set.

Like most of us I cannot justify spending money to buy an official one from forge world, so I have decided to have a go at making one myself. And as always I'm looking to keep things as cheap as physically possible, using materials that you can easily get around the house. So after I did a little bit of research I realise that I plan to make a 4X4 boards worth of tiles Plus in time I'm going to make little bits and pieces of scenery as well as bulkheads doors, to make things look a little bit more realistic.

The tiles themselves are very simple to make, using polystyrene cardboard formboard and textured paint.

A simple project and hopefully it will inspire you to make your own as you can see of hundreds of pounds doing it yourself and as always with a little bit of work, it's easily enough done, and looks great on the table top.

For painting I wanted it to be dark and Gothic I didn't want to much colour which and I also ruled out painting the floor silver as I thought it didn't look quite right. As things stand I'm really pleased and in time Will definitely be doing a couple of other little bits and pieces to add a little bit more character to the boards look over all.
