It looks great. Do you plan on making some buildings around the refinery?

Any idea what that thing in the hill is? It looks like some sort of building piece. Also, i like the use of the Macaggre terrain ship pieces embedded into the board. Very nice.
Edit: On reflection, it looks like silver painted cardboard with a vehicle door or something glued to the centre?

I really like the idea on how to sand the board.
I have two questions about it:
1. So you stick the details down before or afterwards?
2. What consistancy are you looking for in the bucket before you pour?

When you call an intimate moment with your partner "the Assault Phase"

Is that followed by a pile-in move?

That brings a whole new meaning to the term "Hit and Run"

Can that be following a deep strike, or do you have to wait until the next round?

I used that pink stuff on a trench warfare board I did once. Great stuff, it is... you can form quickie trenches by spraying up close with lacquer spray paint, which eats channels into the foam.
