'How I Base' Series: Graveyard Dispay Board


My brother has started collecting a Death army for AoS and I decided to make him a display board for his birthday coming up. The board is 2 foot by 2 foot and uses to Garden of
Morr kit.

I used Hobby Clay to make the cobblestone path way.

I then used a knife to indent to patter on the pathway, making sure it was random patterns. I then used screw up silver foil and a rolling pin to roll over the top to make the stone cobbles more realistic.


I placed all the scenery where I wanted it and sanded the whole board using Sharp sand form Wickes (UK - £2.09 for 25 Kg)

I then took the scenery back off and sprayed the whole board black.

Followed by a spray of Mechanicus Standard Grey one the pathway.

I sprayed random parts Green for where I wanted the crackle paint to be, this will give a glow effect underneath.

 I washed the pathway with Agrax, Nuln Oil and Reikland and drybrushed back up with Dawnstone and Terminatus Stone.



I then added the gravestone where I wanted them.

I applied the homemade stir land mud (polyfiller, sand and brown acrylic paint) and the crackle paint and left for a few hours to dry in the sun.

I drybrushed the whole area with Slyvaneth Bark and Tyrant Skull

And finally added the flock, shrubs and meadow flowers. 




All of the scenery is removable for easier storage, but thats it. Took roughly 6 hours (excluding waiting time). But really happy with how it turned out!
