Well… this week I built the terrain boards from scratch for our demo game in a week and a bit at Bovington.

This is the full mock up, minus the proper Dutch buildings and a few more trees…

OK, quit teasing. "Get 'er dun" and get back here with pics, lots of them. Looks really good. Can't wait to see more.

Hmmm, my wife is out of town tonight. Surely she won't miss a few towels…

Love it. I still use the Gilder/Rumford approach to texturing terrain boards (paint, sawdust…) and I like the look, but I have long been impressed by the terrain of Andrews and one of the Perrys using towels. Love the look of your now too. In addition to the dying, are you spraying other colours on? I assume that you are using flocking to soften the transition to other surfaces (roads etc).

Piers, if you're looking for site-specific Arnhem buildings in 20mm drop me a line; I know a chap who may be able to help.

I use cheap green carpet.
I'm trying to get my head round towels.
Are they particularly short pile (if that's the right term)
