(GAMEIN5D in action)
Here's a few photos of the building in question. It's mostly just taped together with a tiny bit of glue to keep a few loose elements in place for the photos. The kit went together really easily and I like the level of detail, check out the video if you're interested. The guy from blotz (link to his website here) had some amazing stuff on his stall in several different scales - I think I was quite restrained actually and only bought two. Here's the one from the video.
Like I said, I met a lot of great gamers and traders with great gear thanks again to the nice man from Blotz, Simon from S&A scenics, Chris and Pete from Tablescape, Pete and Graham and everyone from the Staines Wargamers and the very nice people from kallistra who have a really cool hex-based terrain system.

Why is it that superglue bonds skin with gleeful enthusiasm but won't glue lichen onto a bit of dry stick? Now most of the superglue has come off my fingers I'm a bit more sanguine about it.
And here's the whole board, combined with the other. I've had to move out of my normal work space to take the photos, and there isn't as much light. The whole board is 1.08m by 0.72m - big enough for our dining table anyway.
Sorry, I just like taking these - here's the obligatory aerial shot.
And finally the whole thing folds up into a nice little set of boxes. Cheers!
Just a quick post to say thank you to the hundreds of people who came over and had a look at my stand and had a chat at IMPS2016. It was a pleasure to meet every one of you and thank you for all your positive feedback. If you're one of the many who took a flyer, don't forget to sign up to our mailing list on the kickstarter page. Thanks especially to Domi at Retrokit and the lovely people at Amera Plastic Mouldings who couldn't have been more kind. Thank you!

A special thank you to the very nice people at RetroKit who were very nice to me as a total newbie to the convention scene. I'll be back tomorrow, looking forward to it!
In the spirit of completion and fairness I should say that the Vallejo earth texture was fully dry by the next morning and gave a really nice finish. It's a bit spongy when fully dry but otherwise the texture (see below) if very good.
All of the plaster-based mixes dried within about 45 minutes, even the last one which had a lot more pva in it. I took some close-up pictures (below) so you can see the difference between them. Personally I think I could find a use for all of these depending on what I was trying to make and at what scale - and it was some geeky fun getting it done too - always a good thing.
Hello, I'm Jon.
I'm very much a learner model maker, especially dioramas, gaming surfaces, models and toy boxes for me and my children.
