Thanks for the input! Yes I actually already made some white lines as can be seen on my Picture Topic. I have been considering to paint some for the Free Marines and Martian Banshees as well, but they either lack the shield shaped belt buckle or it is so tiny I don't know if I can actually paint stripes on it. :)

Then cheat, paint the belt buckle white, then with 0.5 graphic pens do the red and blue lines, it`s how I do Dredd. At my age with my hands, I`d never do it smart the old way.Your figures are good, so if you can tie them in using this, it would be good. Failing that, buy some American shoulder flashes, (Transfers) for W.W.2, from Warlord Games or other, and adapt those.
Cheers all.

With my Venus themed capitol done I'm starting to work on my second set soon in a martian theme. Along with this I'm also making some martian terrain. Last year I bought a 6 pack of GW terrain boards. Now I finally brought them out and started to base them to prepare the creation of my martian wasteland battlezone. :)

I first made to sure to base them with some white primer and then went ahead and painted the bases with a mixture of red/orange colour. The next step will be to put down a mixture of water and glue into the cracks and along the base of the cliffs then spread out sand.

Once everything been covered with sand I will lay another layer of thin red colour with a higher amount of orange/yellow to bring it closer to a desert, hoping to have the red base colour creating the contrast needed to make it feel like a martian desert.

Right, I have been working with the martian boards. Hope to get them somewhat ready for my attendace at GothCon tomorrow and on saturday.

Now I found I reached some kind of limit to upload files. Hold on while I edit an old post to make some space for a progress image.

Edit: All done, probably needed to do that clean up anyway... :D

While I have glued the sand in place I think that by putting a few thin layers of paint ontop of the sand I will create a more sturdy board. I have actually now finished 3 of the 6 boards with sand and paint. The other 3 are currently drying since yesterday and I will be making sure to colour the sand on them as I get home today.

Then I will make some highlights across the board and last shade it all. It will be interesting to see how the results will look. :D

End results of my terrain boards, pictures from on site at gothcon;

For note, neither my Imperials or my containers/slum houses on the board itself. :)

Thanks Feralzen, I will have to agree. Now I just need to make more terrain to put ontop of it, I already have a few small rocks, barbwire and walls but I need to make more to be able to fill the whole board. :)
