I would suggest streaking some yellow orage through more of the middle of the lava not just the edges. Once you get the paint to look how you want it you might want to consider adding a thin layer of the silicon water ontop. I did this on a drainage ditch in my cityscape board plus you can add rocks prior to adding the fake water and it will really add to the depth look you wanted to get.Just soem friendly suggestions, the board is a great concept so don't give up on it.-BJ
If you want to off center the chaos icon, you could always take an endpiece and move it to the opposite side. It might look roughly like an *->.I helped set up an 8x5 board for an Apoc game once, using this same sort of idea (albeit a lot less permanent). If you'll parden the horrendous proxying, there's pics of it at:http://www.flickr.com/photos/35224717@N05/3843487305/in/set-72157622108144332/
You could try this effect it will take a long time, but it looks really well.http://www.heresy-online.net/forums/showthread.php?t=6438
matt, ive got a bunch of different sized pin heads you can use as lava bubbles i think you should add them for effect
It's a nice looking board, but to be perfectly honest with you it looks more like a necron board... the eight pointed logo looks more like a necron sigil, just with the ends of the lines cut off. Still, With some custom built chaos terrain it could look really sweet. Some sort of monument to go in the middle would be good.
If you look at my new scenery post on my blog http://steevowargaming.blogspot.com/2009/09/new-scenery.html post i have a lava board in there. What I did was painted it all black, did mechrite red almost to to the edges, then blood red in a little more, then blazing orange in a little more, then firey orange. the final thing to top it off was to do some thin white hot cracks in the lava (sunburst yellow, white, and a smidge of firey orange) basically the same thing they had in WD last yr. Except did not do a black wash on it. But this painting technique will give you a lava look that is white hot in the center but cooling at the edges. Check out the post and you'll see the results! Hope this helps!
