A bright green cloth with out of scale buildings and trees, are all too common. Time working on the terrain must be worthwhile.
First attempt....and bar a few errors.....not too dispirited.
Ploughed field and wall example.
|Steel base. Heavy (downside) but won't warp (upside)|
Ploughed field from Noch railway accessories.
Dry stone wall bought on Ebay. Pollyfiller (white)
The bank on the extreme left was cut polystyrene., partially covered in pollyfiller.
|Painted over in a dark brown. The ploughed field needed little in the way of additions.|
|Saxon jagers. Wall still needs to be toned down so the |
starkness looks more like the left hand side.
|Add glue (copydex) and flock. (pre mixed) |
Might place a gate in the gap in the wall.
|The odd tuft....wall still to do.|
|Saxon command (Art Miniaturen)|
French engineers working on a pontoon example. I sourced two pre cut mdf bases.
|Standard MDF from Ebay.|
|Is pollyfiller the right answer? |
No idea....but seems to work well.
|One side has a larger bank of earth.|
|Gabions added. These were plastic and bought on Ebay. |
Had I not painted these ages ago, I would
have spray painted the whole lot in dark brown.
|Different browns with a little green.|
|A feeling of water....mud.|
|Flock and figures to add.|
|Mdf base with a river section (Ebay) glued on top. and then cut to fit. |
Pollyfiller added for texture.
|Painted green and brown. Dark blue/green for the river.|
|Stage arranging, vital to avoid errors and changes of heart, before finishing touches. |
Figures are all Franznap. These are excellent castings.
|Rope now added. Described as rigging rope on Ebay.|
