We gave my rules a good try out at Partizan and they producede a fast and plausible game that we both enjoyed. We came up with ideas for a few minor tweaks to improve things and I’ll also add some more defined processes for off board mortars and light artillery.
I’ve added some foliage camouflage to some of my German vehicles to help get that “Normandy” look. This is the summer foliage scrim from 4-ground that I picked up a while back in a North Star sale. Glued on with clear PVA and later sprayed with anti-shine varnish.
To complete the process of building my bocage sections:
First I applied my usual figure basing mix and some static grass to the banks. This helps the bocage to match my other terrain and figure bases. I used clear PVA for this and it seems to work a little better than the usual white stuff.
Next I used the same clear PVA to apply fine turf scatter to the hedges. To thicken this up I allowed the glue to soak into the first application of turf then sprinkled on some more.
Lastly I applied more fine turf scatter to make the tree foliage. For this I sprayed the rubberised coco fibre forming the tree with matt varnish and sprinkled on various mixes of turf colours to create some variation.
Everything then got a spat all over with matt varnish to fix the materials in place.
All done and ready for Partizan! See you a week on Sunday.
