Display Board for the Dark Angels

My Christmas project was to build and paint a display board from my LVO Dark Angels army.

I started with a wooden serving tray purchased at the local grocery store. I spray painted the outer edges black and then finished it off with a gloss protective coat.

Next I took a single Realm of Battle board section (purchased from Red Claw here in Edmonton...thanks for breaking up a full box of these boards, Leanne!). I measured out a section of the board that would fit inside the tray, and then cut out that section with a hand saw. I sanded down the edges, and had a display board ready to go. I painted it (the longest part of this process, obviously) and weathered it with a variety of acrylic products.

I slipped the board into the tray, and...well...there it is.

My 100 PL army fits in perfectly. And it's ready to go.

'Til next time.


  1. Great idea with tray. The whole package together looks great. Well done.


  2. That's a very cleave idea to use the tray in that way. I might have to pinch that!
