DISPLAY BASE FOR CHAOS ARMY

Tomislav Petrović, 20th July 2021

Since my brother went to Krems this year (editor's note: 2005) for the second time for the Austrian Championship, and the display base is one of the conditions for the community there to participate in the tournament, here's how I put in the effort and made one.

To clarify one thing, display bases (hereinafter DB) that are made in such a way that a certain surface is flocked, painted, maybe some extra features, and the figures are placed on it is for me a halfassed solution - in short, a lot of work for something that looks average. I consider a DB to be da bomb when each unit or individual figure has its own slot in which it is placed so that the surface of the base of the figure is flush with the surface of the DB.

Dissatisfied with the fact that the DB created in this way is useful while the list for which it was made is current, I decided to make a display base that will be applicable to each list (at least its main part), and only the surface will change - when you go deeper into the text , you will understand what I meant.

1. Found a suitable board (2 cm thick)

2. Since my rectangular shape is too ordinary, I decided to complicate things a bit and make a non-real octagon (by that I mean 4 sides of the same length). I made a draft and transferred it to the board:

3. I got rid of the excess with a jigsaw, so now the DB has a shape in which the angles are under 150 degrees, 4 sides 30 cm long, and the other four 14 cm + a couple of millimeters, which will later be removed by planing and grinding.

Tip: Never cut the board to the desired dimension but leave 2-4 mm due to the above procedures later:

4. I also cut a 4 mm thick plywood board to the same shape (the figure bases are 4 mm thick):

5. I made 4 holes in the board and plywood with a drill, which will later be fitted with screws that will fix the plywood to the main board:

6. Then I widened the holes on the plywood so that the nut would fit in them. I used screws fi = 5 mm and the nut for them is 4 mm thick so it won’t protrude beyond the plywood. After that, the joint between the nut and the plywood is well sanded with super glue, making sure that the glue does not go on the thread because it could later interfere with the screw:

Tip: Since the nut in the board must be fixed, it is desirable to drill a 1 mm smaller hole, and then drive it into the board with a hammer and brutal force.

7. After the nut is fixed, for the first time the plywood and the main plate are connected with screws in order to determine how long the screw needs to be and to remove the excess:

It looks like this:

8. After the screw was shortened to the appropriate length, I covered the nuts on the top of the plywood board with masking tape so that I could texture that surface later.

9. After that I joined the boards and due to the inaccuracy in cutting the boards and drilling the holes the edges looked like this:

10. In order to achieve that the edges match, the excess needs to be planed, and then finely sanded. After this procedure the condition is as follows:

11. After processing the edges with a vibrating grinder, I sanded all the surfaces on the plywood and the main board:

12. The next and most demanding step is to place the decorative moldings on the edges of the board. I took 3x3 cm high / wide corner skirting boards for parquet length of 2 m. The skirting board is coated with wood fix, joined to the board, and then I additionally fastened it with nails:

13. After installing the moldings the whole thing looks like this:

14. As the angle on the legs of the molding is not right, but it is cut obliquely, it happened that I have a "groove" on the lower side between the molding itself and the plate. This proved to be a happy coincidence because knowing your brother (a man is able to tear a steel ball) any extra fixation comes in handy. I filled the grooves with hot glue using a gun (I guess you know which tool I'm talking about):

15. As I approached the plane of the board and molding any excess glue that might protrude over that plane I straightened with a spatula while the glue was hot and liquid. After gluing, the underside of the board looks like this:

16. Since I don't have the right tools (saw stand)), I had to determine the angles of 150 degrees between the moldings by eye only, and especially because I'm not a carpenter, the next thing happened:

Click for enlarged picture

17. I sanded the joints to get rid of the protruding parts, and I cracked the cracks between the moldings using carpentry putty and left it to dry overnight. The next day I sanded the putty with fine sandpaper to make a perfect transition between the two strips and the putty and so that after painting everything together I would not see the difference between the putty and the wooden part.:

18. Now it's time to paint. I protected the moldings with protective tape:

19. Then I painted the board between the moldings with black matt spray and left it to dry:

20. After that, it was time to paint the moldings. I protected the previously painted black surface with a protective tape:

Click for enlarged picture

21. I used brown wood paint with integrated varnish which, in addition to protecting, also gives a gloss effect. I took a darker shade (rosewood) because the darker color covers the putty better.

Tip: Apply the first coat only on putty parts and wait for the paint to dry well. After that, in the second painting, paint the complete moldings. Two or three coats of well-smeared coat should be enough for a nice coverage - of course, between each coat you should wait for the previous one to dry well:

22. A few more small details and the main board is ready. I bought wood wallpaper for the underside of the DB - black wallpaper with rings - it definitely looks the most convincing and least cheap:

23. After installing the wallpaper, the underside of the DB looks like this:

24. The final job on the DB main panel is varnishing the screws and black so that the metal head of the screw does not look ugly on the black wallpaper:

25. Now it's the plywood board's turn. I placed the unite on it and marked the parts to be removed according to them:

26. After that, I drilled holes in the corners for cutting with a jigsaw:

27. After cutting the excess and sanding the plywood looks like this:

Tip: When cutting, it is good to make sure and make a 1 mm bigger hole for the bases, because if you cut too small a hole later, it is a real pain to grind the part that bothers you so that the base fits nicely into the hole.

28. The next step is to text the plywood. I will not talk too much about this because the procedure is the same as when texturing the most ordinary terrain:

29. Since the Austrians also demand some extra feature on the DB, we decided to make a monolith dedicated to the nurgle god. I cut it out of a piece of wood, processed it by planing and grinding, and then made indentations with a flexor. The flexor may be an unorthodox tool for making models (especially if they are made of wood), but it is very effective. The dead-line that hung dangerously on my back at that stage of making DB makes all sorts of ideas fall through in order to speed up the work:

30. Later we decorated the monolith with, for a nurgle, the characteristic three circles arranged in a triangle using large screw plates, added waterlogging heads from chaos tank sprue, added a tray made of half a plug of Ax dezic, a hot glue gun made slime leaking waterlogged from the mouth into the tray and then overflowing over the edge and dripping down the monolith to the base. Relatively simple special feature, and yet in the spirit of the military. I fixed the monolith with wood fix and plywood nails and when everything was in place I undercoated with black matt spray:

That in short (well, not very short) would be that.

The point is that one day, when the list is changed, this plywood is replaced with another plywood, which will be cut according to a template that matches the new list, with maybe some new feature instead of a monolith to refresh the impression a bit, and the base itself to be further usable.

I hope that the text is clear enough and that there are enough pictures and that those who will one day want to make their DB, but are not sure where to start and how to finish the job will benefit from this text.

P.S.

Still, a few words of warning because not everything is as simple as the text suggests.

FIRST

The circular saw is a dangerous tool, and I definitely have no luck with it. A year ago, he almost tore off my left index finger. This time, fortunately, she was excluded, but even then she showed her insidious nature (a sharp knife that looks benign while static).

SECOND :

I don’t know about you, but the mess I leave behind in creative ecstasy is, to put it mildly, terrifying. I think I’ll avoid the basement for a while because I get depressed every time I see how much cleaning awaits me.

Ok, I’m finally done writing.

    In this series of articles, we will follow our Goran, Kruno and Marko in the making of a diorama set in New York / Gotham in the mid-1980s. Diorama is being built as part of a new UMS "Agram" project called Agram Group Build, which was created after the trio discussed joint projects to be done on Wednesdays and how cool it would be to gather more people to work on something together… This gave birth to the idea of Group Builds... The idea is for everyone to do something on each of these three projects - the main rule (except that there are no rules) is not to mess with other people's work. That we all participate and make some kind of Frankenstein monster ...

    Click for enlarged picture

    KRUNO: After the obligatory introductory lemonade, I tried designing a window for a diorama. I tried to keep the proportions as in the pictures, and Marko forgot (aha!) to print the blueprints. That's why I used an unusual technique with a ruler on a mobile phone.. Satisfied with the result.
    Click for enlarged picture
    After designing, we threw ourselves into building… I assembled half of a Mini Art garbage container. I gave up mid way due to home chores… handed over Marko to Goran and went to self-register…
    Click for enlarged picture

    GORAN: Immediately after Kruno's departure, I started to remove the plastic gas bottles from the frame (sprue). In cooperation with Marko, I successfully completed this activity on one example, while at the same time he also successfully mastered the challenging assignment on a smaller copy - in my own case, I attribute this to running training, after which I was quite exhausted. All in all, a slow but promising start, I look forward to continuing the collaboration.
    Click for enlarged picture

    MARKO: What to say that my esteemed colleagues haven't said before. In parallel with Kruno, I assembled a bucket and a garbage container. With a little more success (aha, Kruno, back at ya!) Because I finished both the bucket and the container.

    When Kruno fled and Goran came, we continued our work by assembling the gas cylinders. One bigger and one smaller.

Dioramu rade u sklopu novog projekta UMS „Agram“ pod nazivom Agram Group Build koji je nastao nakon što je trojac srijedama razgovarao o zajedničkim projektima i kako bi bilo cool okupiti više ljudi srijedama oko rada na zajedničkom nečemu… Iz toga se izrodila ideja o Group Buildovima. Ideja je da svatko nešto odradi na svakom od ta tri projekta - a glavno pravilo (osim da nema pravila) jest da se ne prtlja po tuđem radu. Da svi sudjelujemo i napravimo nekakvo frankensteinovo čudo...

    KRUNO: Nakon obavezne uvodne limunade, okušao sam se u dizajniranju prozora za dioramu. Trudio sam se zadržati omjere kakvi su na slikama, a Marko je zaboravio (aha!) isprintati slike. Zato sam koristio neobičnu tehniku ravnalom po mobitelu… zadovoljan rezultatom.

    Nakon projektiranja bacili smo se u izradu… sklopio sam pola kontejnera za smeće tvrtke Mini Art. Odustao sam na pola zbog kućnih obaveza… predao Marka Goranu i otišao se samopopisati…

    GORAN: Netom nakon Kruninog odlaska, krenuo sam skidati plastične plinske boce sa okvira (engl. sprue). Ovu aktivnost sam u suradnji s Markom na jednom primjerku uspješno priveo kraju, dočim je on istovremeno na manjem primjerku uspješno isto tako savladao izazovno slaganje - ovo u vlastitom slučaju pripisujem odrađenom treningu trčanja nakon kojeg sam bio poprilično iscrpljen. Sve u svemu, polagan, ali obećavajuć početak, veselim se nastavku suradnje.
    Click for enlarged picture

    MARKO: Što reći, a da kolege nisu već rekli prije. Paralelno sa Krunom, slagao sam kantu i kontejner za smeće. Sa malo više uspjeha (aha, Krunom, back at ya!) jer sam završio i kantu i kontejner.

    Kad je Kruno zbrisao, a Goran došao, nastavili smo posao sklapanjem plinskih boca. Jedna veća i jedna manja.

Diorama is being built as part of a new UMS "Agram" project called Agram Group Build, which was created after the trio discussed joint projects to be done on Wednesdays and how cool it would be to gather more people to work on something together… This gave birth to the idea of Group Builds... By the end of the year, probably three projects (diorama, some figure and some bust) will be launched so whenever you come and whatever your preference might be, you will have something to do. The idea is for everyone to do something on each of these three projects - the main rule (except that there are no rules) is not to mess with other people's work. That we all participate and make some kind of Frankenstein monster ...

    Given that we still don’t know anything about finances in 2021 from the City at the moment, the trio decided to start with a diorama (since it doesn’t require additional investment - which the figure and bust require).

    MARKO: Since September, we have been making a diorama from the picture. In short: the end of the 20th century, something between New York and Gotham. Lots of different materials - concrete, brick, stone, metal, plastic, wood ... studded with details such as air conditioning, electricity distribution and various garbage, bins and the like on the floor. Scale 1/35 or 54mm. For now, we have no plans to put up figures, but you never know ... Basically, it looks similar to the Chestnut Ink template from the picture ... After a couple of brain storming meetings, we came up with a rough outline for our project.

    S obzirom da trenutno i dalje ne znamo nista o financijama u 2021 od Grada, trojac je odlučio krenuti sa dioramom ( s obzirom da ona ne zahtjeva dodatna ulaganja - što figura i bista zahtijevaju).

    MARKO: Od rujna smo krenuli sa izradom diorame sa slike. Ukratko: kraj 20.stoljeća, nešto između New Yorka i Gothama. Puno različitih materijala - beton, cigla, kamen, metal, plastika, drvo... načičkat detaljima poput klima, razvoda struje te raznog smeća, kanti i sličnog na podu. Mjerilo 1/35 odn 54mm. Za sad nemamo planove stavljat figure, ali nikad ne znaš... Uglavnom, da zgleda slično kao i predložak od Chestnut Inka sa slike... Nakon par brain storming sastanaka došli smo do okvirnog nacrta za naš projekt

    Radionica se provodila kroz dva dana (cijeli vikend). Glavni fokus ovih predavanja bit će bojanje demonske kože, tekstura grubog tekstila odnosno kožnih dijelova te specijalnih efekata poput OSL. Time vođeni, voditelji su izabrali prikladnu bistu Hellboya. U sklopu radionice, korištene su akrilne boje kao i uljni efekti.
    Predavanja su bila prilagođena tako da su voditelji posvetili jednako vrijeme svim polaznicima i moglii se prilagoditi svim kategorijama minijaturista (od početnika do malo naprednijih). Radionica se odvijala na sljedeći način: Prvo, predavač sjedi za svojim stolom te objašnjava i demonstrira pojedini korak u bojanju minijature/makete na svojem primjerku. Njegov rad se preko kamere i projektora prikazuje na platnu što polaznici slušaju, gledaju, ali i postavljaju pitanja. Potom, polaznici za svojim individualnim stolovima primjenjuju stečeno znanje. Ana i Marko kruže između polaznika i provjeravaju kako svakom polazniku ide. Na taj način, mogu se prilagoditi svakom polazniku ponaosob.

    Tijekom trajanja radionice primjenjivale su se sve propisane EPIDEMIOLOŠKE MJERE:
    Ispravno nošenje maski je bilo obavezno.
    Dezinficijens je bio na raspolaganju svima.
    Od ove godine koristimo kameru i projekcijsko platno kako bismo pokazali rad predavača svim polaznicima bez potrebe da se oni okupljaju oko predavača što omogućava socijalnu distancu.
    Svaki polaznik imao je svoj stol koji je bio razmaknut propisanim razmakom.

    In preparation for a multiplayer scenario, I redid some surfaces on a plastic modular gaming board.

    The board had the texture of cobbled streets, but there were a few surfaces that were completely textured for some reason. In addition, modern manholes are modelled on the board, which do not correspond to the world in which the scenario will take place. I decided to cover these parts with my own stone slab texture.

    I cut a large amount of rectangles out of thick paper to act as stone slabs.

    I glued the boards one by one with PVA glue (drvofix) to the places that needed to be textured. Drvofix is cheap, dries more slowly so I have plenty of time to set the boards, and the paper sticks well to the plastic.

    When the glue dried I went with a layer of diluted PVA over all the paper stone slabs to impregnate the paper with glue. This makes it tougher, it will be even harder to peel off and it will absorb water less. The latter is desira-ble because when it comes to painting I will use techniques with a lot of water.

    When everything was completely dry, I sprayed the whole board with uneven matte black, white and (mostly) gray spray.

    Several layers of dirty brown and greenish washes went over this after drying. I applied this with a sponge be-cause it is a large area and should have looked smeared and neglected.

    Finally, the outer edge of the board is painted matte black.

    U pripremi za jedan multiplayer scenarij doradila sam kupovnu plastičnu modularnu tablu za igranje.

    Tabla ima teksturu kamenih ulica, no postojalo je nekoliko površina koja su bile potpuno bez teksture iz nekog razloga. Osim toga, na tabli su izmodelirani moderni šahtovi, koji ne odgovaraju svijetu u kojem će se sce-narij održati. Te sam dijelove odlučila prekriti vlastitom teksturom kamenih ploča.

    Iz debelog papira izrezala sam poveliku količinu pravokutnika koje će glumiti kamene ploče.

    PVA ljepilom (drvofix) sam zalijepila ploče jednu po jednu na mjesta koja je trebalo teksturirati. Drvofix je jeftin, sporije se suši pa imam dovoljno vremena namještati ploče, i dobro lijepi papir na plastiku.

    Kad se ljepilo osušilo prošla sam sa slojem razvodjnjenog PVA preko svih papirnatih kamenih ploča da se papir impregnira ljepilom. Od toga postane žilaviji, još teže će se odlijepiti i slabije će upijati vodu. Ovo posljednje je poželjno jer kad dođem do bojanja koristit ću tehnike s puno vode.

    Kad je sve bilo potpuno suho posprejala sam cijelu tablu nejednolično mat crnim, bijelim i (najviše)sivim sprejem.

    Preko toga je nakon sušenja išlo nekoliko slojeva prljavih smeđih i zelenkastih washeva. To sam nanosila spužvom jer je velika površina i trebalo je izgledati zmazano i zapušteno.

    Na kraju, vanjski rub ploče obojan je u mat crnu.
