Them thar extra hills ... are now finished!

I have finally managed to finish the extra hills I was making to go with 'new' terrain boards.

There are two types of hill in the latest batch; three that are double-length, single-level hills and two that are double-length but with a double-level at one end.


In combination with my existing twelve hills I should be able to reproduce a reasonably hilly landscape for my battles. I would like to make some further hills (possibly with one or more sides that make it obvious that that part of the hill cannot be climbed) and some rocky outcrops ... but I am not sure when I will get around to it. I would also like to make some other terrain items (possibly including built-up areas, fields etc.) but that is not likely to happen in the very near future ... unless – of course – I have a change of heart!

  3. Bob,

    It strikes me that the line on the "flat" hills could be a crest line, with the two sides sloping a bit away.

    For fields etc., just get some of those felt squares from a craft or dollar store and cut them to appropriate sizes. You could even use a darker color to indicate a depression.

  4. Bluebear Jeff,

    I had not thought of that idea regarding the crest of a hill. Nice one!

    I do have squares of suitable felt for fields etc., and will use them. I do, however, want to make some terrain items that will require to be based.

    All the best,

    Bob
