    I used to make my hills by folding, gluing and stapling grass paper onto expanded polystyrene. Like this:

    The slopes were too steep and troops just slid to the bottom. Pretty unplayable. so they’ve sat in a box for thirty years and big dramatic hills have eluded me.

    But I recently decided to upgrade them into something more dramatic:

    Blue and pink insulating foam.  I saved a bunch of the off cuts from making other hills  for NWFrontier games

    Paint. Of the cheap acrylic craft paint variety.

    I didn’t use any spray paints.
