Revamp And Great War Terrain Etc.

In between figure painting this week I have modified a terrain board that had a fixed hill on it, this made storage awkward and limited its use in games. I decided to remove the hill and add a drainage ditch so that the board could still have some sort of obstacle if required.


The dark green piece used to be a small hill, well a lump really that looked a little silly, to right of the ditch is where the hill stood with an escarpment running down to the road, I am hoping to salvage this by gluing to a piece of MDF at some point.

I have also started work on two terrain pieces for our Great War games, a destroyed gun and a shattered tree line for the road side, the gun needs to be weathered yet. The trees are Woodland Scenics dead fall, the fence piece is by Irregular, love this piece and fit it in anywhere I can, the pile of helmets etc. are from Grand Manner, both these need to be painted and I will add a little bit of greenery.



This week besides commission figures I have also finished my Great War British 18pdr and crew, the other figure that comes with the pack from Great War Miniatures will be put on the ammunition wagon base.


Lastly I have redone the site background to make it look a bit more military and changed the header photo, I hope you like the changes.

  4. Like the 'new look' here, Phil! I still think a dead horse hanging over a branch would add something... No?
