Rivers and other things ...

After a visit to the car boot sale yesterday, I came home with another pottery house to add to my scenics; a cutting mat and a boxful of about 20 dice (all for the princely sum of £3.50).

I've been trying to work out how to make some river sections for my next battle scenario. While tidying up to store my houses away I came across some self adhesive cork tiles - eureka ! idea for river sections:
- cut cork tile to width required
- remove backing;
- stick on some thin clear plastic painted on the reverse side with brown and green smudges
- add some river banks - paint and finish as required.

I decided on a set of straight river sections plus a bridge, to use for the next scenario (curved sections another time !). After a few hours work I created the river sections I needed, photo below shows river sections in place.

  1. Hey -- I really like those innovative cork tile river sections. The bridge pulls everything together nicely too. Best Regards,

  2. Good river idea, should be durable too!

  3. I really, really like your terrain pieces. Your eclectic sources of buildings is highly commabdable also.
