Today’s post is about how to scratch build and paint marble flooring on a large scale for display boards.
The marble flooring is for the Ruined City of Sigmar table Steve is building for Holy Havoc this year.
The table is sponsored by Ministomp, the store who provided the Games Workshop kits included. Ministomp are an email order service based in the Midwest of the US and provide a full range of Games Workshop products. You can order by email and they run multiple sales and discounts via their Twitter account. Ministomp certainly gets rave reviews from the Midwest AoS scene.
