Also, as a matter of interest, this is my 400th published blog post!
This time, I've turned my attention to producing some hills.
Love 'em or loathe 'em, I've gone for the "tiered-hill" approach.
Sure - they don't look very realistic, but at least the models will stand on them without toppling. I find that infuriating, personally. My gaming surface is fairly hard and a lot of my models are lead (and Gravity is a long-standing nemesis of mine and takes every opportunity to stitch me up): I didn't want my models rolling off and getting dinged and damaged.
So, tiered hills it is.
I've split my hill-building efforts over two blog posts - this one showing "smaller" hills and the other showing "larger" hills.
These are just made from polystyrene sheets (bought from a local DIY store and intended for use as insulation). They some as 8' x 4' sheets and cut readily with a knife and hot-wire cutter. Textured, painted and flocked using my usual recipe and they blend in to the table surface pretty well, I think.
