Well, it’s not often that I go for terrain, but I decided to spend a little time and money. I absolutely needed some 20mm stuff, and then I looked for some other stuff that could be used for at least 15mm and 20mm, maybe even some 10mm. Some of it worked 😉
This post is a mix of stuff I bought then made myself, and of stuff I bought on the internet (some from Ebay, and some from a fellow TMP member). In any case, it will all see the table pretty soon.
The whole mess, everything I’ve recently acquired/been working on. We’ve got a couple rocky hills, some rough ground and trees, a fenced in utility shop, and some ‘scatter’-type terrain. To see a bunch more photos, please check the blog at:
Well, that’s my new terrain, so it’s ready, and the troops are ready. Stand by for action!

Cheers and good gaming.

Jack, I tried posting on your blog, but either it hasn’t worked or my comment will appear 10 times 🙂
Anyway – Nice additions. I think your building scale looks fine.Many gamers choose to use a building scale 1 scale lower than their figure scale, or at least choose buildings that have a smaller footprint than typical of their figure scale. Once everything is on the table, it will look right to your eye.
From experience, I have struggled with clump foliage, though once done, the results are worth the effort. You need a tacky glue, but in the end, I was using a hot glue gun on the branches and then using the tacky glue as an additional fix to connect the various clumps to each other on the tree. Once done, I mixed some PVA glue in water and use a small cosmetic plastic sprayer to spray it over the trees, to make it ‘set off’. I have also use hairspray to do the same thing (fixative).
It’s a nice thing to add to the battlefield – that is my next task, to elevate the look.10/12/2015 at 02:47 #35458Just JackParticipant
Thanks guys, I appreciate it!
Norm – I’ll have to look into what’s going on with the comments, and a hot glue gun. Thanks for the tips.
