The time has finally come to grit my teeth and start decorating the 8 terrain board we need for Zama, so today, I started work on a test board. This is one of the 9 mdf/styrene boards I fashioned back in November.
Above is the board with patches of tebby bear fur PVA'd to it.
Above, my youngest son has trimmed the fur "fields" with electric haircutting shears. This was pretty quick to do. The "wolf" fur on the right makes a pretty good crop; the shorter, paler fur at the back, will make useful long grass. I've also roughly scribed some "tracks" into the board.
I intend the overall look of the boards to be a dry, dusty autumn look, with mostly harvested fields, some ploughed fields and scattered olive trees. However, none of the terrain will have any impact, whatsoever, on the battle.
