I have posted a series of photos of my latest revised terrain pieces for DBA 3.0. Part were shown in an earlier post here labeled Ploughland or plough using the DBA term.

There are more than enough terrain pieces for "Giant" DBA played on a 4 x 6 foot board. Missing in photos, but are completed, are hills, woods, rivers and roads.

Looks great, any how to suggestions :)

They're excellent. What sizes are they?

That looks good!

If I had to guess, pan scourer painted brown/grey topped with woodland scenics type crumb foliage.

The fiberous pan scourer gives the impression of the dense stems below the foliage. I'll have to try it myself.

Yes, how did you make them?

Thanks for your kind comments.

The terrain features are for 15mm DB(X) and HOTT use.

The "how to" are postings scattered between my two blogs, but you can find other terrain projects by checking the Index at 18th Century Sojourn.

By the way, the small trees growing between the hedges are dried grape stems. The natural colour requires no painting, but layering the Woodland Scenics foliage is much easier than with twigs.

Ah, thank you. I see you have made them 3 x 6 BW and 4 x 5 BW. I wonder though why you have made them only the maximum possible size? Wouldn't it make sense to have some smaller ones, so as to reduce the effect of possible bad going should it become so?

Actually, the 1 in 6 chance that plough does become muddy is not great a problem. It becomes "rough" going which is not to be confused with "bad" going.

Rough going terrain would only slow movement, but is not a tactical factor as bad going. As bow can move 1 BW and shoot, an effective line can still be presented to an enemy's front.

More importantly, it looks prettier.
