I've been looking at ways to start making a dedicated board and some scenery to go on it recently, in preparation for my completed army. I suspect it'll look a bit better than a couple of MDF board with a bunch of unpainted COD buildings lying on top of them...
As I've been looking around, I seem to be falling more and more out of love with the COD sets - they really are a bit too busy to feasibly be believed in as normal buildings. I'm going to have to have a look in at disassembling the sets I've already constructed and using them with spacers - though that may prove too great a challenge considering the amount of plastic glue I poured over those things...
Anyway, I thought I'd gather together a few links, for both me and you lot. They lead to projects, Q&As, etc... that I've found particularly inspirational while surfing around for ideas. If you have a link yourself, or one of the links dies and I don't notice, drop me a line via the comments and I'll add it in to the post/try and restore the link as soon as possible.
