2 Small Hills

Well... smaller than the previous batch. They are each about 30cm by 50cm. Made in the same fashion with 2 exceptions, both improvements over the previous method:
-these two hills are based on 3mm MDF; I wish I had done this for the previous set although it would have made the larger hills a tad heavy.
-after slathering them in tile adhesive/grout mix I began sticking shrubs and rocks directly and applied the static grass immediately. As the adhesive mix takes a long time to dry it worked perfectly; you actually have about an hour to an hour and half of working time- after that it starts to skim.

Here is the raw foam sanded and glued to MDF bases.

The finished hills:

Here some 15mm Numdian horsemen give you an idea of scale:

(without a significant amount of light in the background the camera wants to compensate by yellowing all the greens)


  1. Thanks Dave- how are you own hills coming?

    1. Stalled/Barely started. I found some plastic shell hills that I could through under my gaming mat for the lace wars battles I'm trying to play with Tommy. I imagine when I get to a different scenario i'll need some large hills/plateaus again.

  2. I have lots of foam- I don't mind making you some if you give me the dimensions.

    1. That would be pretty keen. I have a book of wargame scenarios so maybe I'll try and choose some shapes/sizes that cover a lot. I'll let you know.
