This blog will will contain my rather pedantic ramblings on my experiences within the miniature war gaming hobby. There will be informative how-to’s, thrilling battle reports and thought provoking editorials. I fully expect that history will one day view the contents of this blog on par with Homer’s Illiad or Newton’s Principalia. Or it's a complete waste of time.
Material testing continues to proceed with the secret above ground testing Laboratories go the Geek's Lair, also known as the "garage". The texture from the first tests with joint compound were fine but it's durability is very questionable. Chris left a very useful comment in the previous post about tile grout and I decided to give it a whirl. A quick sanding off gf the joint compound and the a very light coat of the grout was added. The type I'm using comes pre-mixed, textured, and also colored (sandstone). So far it's proving to be a great alternative.
Obligatory file shot of the product being tested - who knows maybe I'll discover a new market for the manufacturer and they'll sign me up for a juicy promotional deal - "Geek Grout - don't accept any substitute"
Yeah, I know, I will not be holding my breath on that one coming through.
