Ready for the ‘Big Red Elg’…

So I’ve palmed off my army onto Andy M of to be painted, as he’s the organising the ‘Big Red Elg’ event this does feel a bit cheeky, but hey at least I’ll have a painted army to play with ;)

Anyhoo so what this post is really about is that I’ve finished the extra roads, hills, trees, lakes and rocks needed to bulk my Bolt Action terrain out onto three or at a push four boards worth. But take a look…

I had a bit of an idea last night and put the ‘Woodland Scenics: Foliage Clusters’, that I usually use as bushes/shrubs around the bases of my trees, in between the rocks and cliff faces on the hills. I’m quite happy with how these came out as they add a bit off natural floofyness to the hard edges of the rocks.

Also finally got round to listening to the second episode of the Home Guard Radio podcast ( and listening to the guys ponder about whether we use ‘too much terrain’ in our games (which is none sense in my mind as terrain is fun ;) and this made me think ‘maybe we need MORE bigger terrain to test the premise’ (hug myself jacket on standby).

So with that in mind I’ve started on a couple of extra huge hills, and as I’m building them I’ll get round to my first terrain tutorial “The Hill”.
