Terrain workshop

Hi all

I am on holiday this week, and off to York for a couple of days. Beofre departing though, I have spent some time in my garage, experimenting with the "tarting up" or "pimping" of some old TSS terrain tiles.

The results have been promising. I'll stick up some photos at the weekend. It has been good to actually get away from the word processor and get some "real" gaming activity under my belt again.

I have taken basic TSS boards and textured them in places with polyfilla and a sand/paint mix. This has been painted using brown fence paint (then dry-brushed in paler shades), and the remaining visible green flock as received a coat of green fence-paint. This gives a good finished effect and I have followed this by repainting my latex roads in the same colours and have also brougt some of my buildings up to the same standards. At the end of all this I hope to have a complete collection of more professional-looking terrain than the usual pile of commercial terrain tiles. By using cheap paint that is readily available, I can then add more pieces to the collection.

I visited a local park today and picked up loads of twigs, so the next addition might be lots of woodland...

cheers
