I have been applying some paint to the Ferris Wheel and it is coming along nicely. It is an imposing piece and will provide some good atmosphere.
In the end, I went with the vertical stripes for the pods and it has helped to 'pull the piece together'. I have still plenty to do and it does take some time building up layers until they are fairly solid in nature. With the pods in place the Ferris Wheel has more presence.
The playing board is 900mm x 900mm, so not huge. I am thinking that I will need 3-4 major items to complete the board plus some kiosks, ticket offices and the like. It will be important to break sight lines and to attempt to have some height as well.
I have also notices that the Batman Miniature Game has rules associated crates so I will need to come up with a suitable design for these.
I have been hunting for ideas and the Dark Templar has been ever helpful with this fantastic mask.
Current thoughts are that it might make a good 'Funhouse' or maybe even the entrance to the park. It is very much in keeping with the Joker theme and also the Trickster element for Coney Island.
Every good funfair has a Carousel so I figured that my next addition should be in that vein. Nothing huge but with horses and poles and all that good stuff.
So I have started with a top and bottom section and intend to use cocktail sticks for the poles. I may have some old horses in the garage somewhere but it may be that they are too big. I will investigate. I think that the key to this looking the part will be the conical top piece and the banner that surrounds the top of the carousel.
