I'm coming up to running my third infinity event at my FLGS, where we tend to play games using the 20:20 mission pack to remove the absolute need for specialists and an HVT. The group I play with are not a competitive lot and the very thought of a tournament is enough to put some people off. With that in mind they have become organised play events, with a nominal fee to the shop for the use of their facilities.
So far I've been very lucky to be able to get my hands on enough terrain to provide some cool looking boards. This is all thanks to our local warcor (and a chap named Sean) who doesn't mind dropping off boxes of terrain when we need them. I then do my best to provide what terrain I have, which is slowly growing and slowly getting painted. I'd like to be able to provide two complete boards, one a typical city fight board and the other a desert military camp.
Enter the Warmill Elmor Road Mega City set. This is not a high demand item, so I don't think the Warmill guys keep it in stock, there was a slight delay as a fresh one was cut. I bought the biggest set, that is not elevated. I think I went too big, this is a lot of board coverage and I can't see me using all of it. Here it is shortly after construction, it dwarfs my double Warsenal building.
I wasn't happy with this and decided some modifications were in order. Rare earth magnets rule the day, so I ordered a bunch of 5x5x2mm. Now that was hard frickin' work, especially when it came time to do the T-Junction pieces. That solution seems to have worked well although it's yet to face trial by combat.
With the construction phase mostly done, it's time to start painting. I bought six cans of Auto Extreme grey primer from eBay. Cheap paint, that does the job. Not as thin or as nice a finish as a can of Rustoleum but at a fraction of the price.
True to form I went back and forth with schemes and technique, which meant getting the road set complete took me a while. Having a deadline really helped as I wanted it ready for the third Infinity Games day at Entoyment.

My next project is to pimp out the road with accessories in the form of road blocks and a fleet of vehicles.
