I've made up some paddy fields, as I needed these for my current Chain of Command Malaya 1942 campaign, but they will also be useful for future games set there, as well as other Far East locations like Burma, China or Vietnam. They were fairly straightforward to make, but I've posted a step by step tutorial here Making Paddy Fields

I'm working on a Philippine Insurrection project and have considered this same terrain issue. It looks great. Thanks for sharing.

Really good -- very believable.

Paddy Field is also the name of an Irish pub in Guangzhou (Canton)

Wow, I'm really liking this project!

Did you use a static grass (electric) applicator or did you do it by hand?

I used an applicator (an inexpensive one I bought off eBay). It worked well.

Looks great ! Now if you could just add the stench of paddy water in the noon day sun … evil grin

Absolutely love it, they are a cracking piece of modelling.
