Right now, I am in the middle of what I call a Terrain Frenzy. I've been cranking out thicket and bushes at an alarming rate!
Over the last few days I finished these:

Not only did I finish those, but I began working on another batch using rubberized Horsehair. I finished the flocking on them also. These came out very nicely.

Simple to do, these can be placed anywhere on your table and they will look good.

They are not finished, more work needs to be done, but that is also a simple process.

Trimming, reshaping and perhaps a misting of AquaNet and a drizzle of a lighter color on the top will finish these off. I'll shoot pix when I'm finished.

Meanwhile, here are the raw results:

Impressive results!

I totally LOVE how you've based your figures!

That long grass added with some flowers looks amazing and realistic. Battlefields tend not to be mowed lawns… :)

I just wish rubberized horsehair could be located in Finland. You don't get as good results using scouring pads etc.

Awesome – how did you make the top thickets?

Those are stunning!

Upgrading my scouring-pad hedgerows is on my active terrain to-do list, I shall have to look into this material. Thanks for posting. <3

@Lonkka1Actual, here in the US, Rustoleum makes a stone-texture spray paint. If you can find anything like that, the green texture paint does improve the scouring-pads somewhat.

There are Tutorials to guide you posted on this page.

I can see an aMAZE-ing scenario developing here – and your troops look like they're trying to find their way out, before the inevitable amBUSH! :)))

Very cool terrain and i agree with LONKKA, great basing of the figures.

Have done similar with my Vikings as doubt there were manicured battlefields in the dark ages.,

LONKKA, Search around under my name for dozens of examples of how I base my figures. There are also various "how to's" included in the posts. Cheers.

Really nice work, great tall grass and underbrush effects!

My first thought on seeing them was "zariba" for Sudan games.
