NOVA Open Display Board - Painting Progress

These are just a few shots of the current state of my Grey Knights display board. With only a week to go it's crunch time for getting things as close to done as I can. I only wish my army was looking as complete as their display does right now.

Most of the painting is complete on the board with the exception of a few small details such as the wooden railings and some metallic details on the burst sewer lines. Overall I learned some good lessons about what to do for next time but more importantly what not to do. I'll also be adding some water effects to the greenish sewer pool but I'm still waiting for my test batch to cure but I'll have to start that tonight or tomorrow so the display board has enough time to cure completely.

On to the pictures...

Up next, some well lit, clear images of the truly completed display board instead of these sloppy cell phone shots.


  1. Looks awesome, I want to see it with the guys in there.

  2. I'm with John, this board looks awesome!

  3. How did you paint the board? The colors look great.

  4. Thanks guys, I put a lot of time into the board and I'm really happy with how it turned out.

    Cameron: I painted the board black with GW's black spray and spent several days airbrushing it with P3 Umbral Umber and GW graveyard earth. I layered a lot of different colors on there as time went and once I got the majority of the color on it I used some thinned oil paints to wash the whole thing and drybrushed it with some GW bleached bone. I'll put a post up this week with some good pics of the whole army on there as well.
