I made a new terrain board for Fistful of Lead: Viva La Revolucion and other skirmish games as well.

It's a old frameless picture canvas with a hardboard back that I found in the local charity shop for a tenner. I stripped the paper picture off, skimmed the canvas with acrylic paste then painted it with a pot of old emulsion paint that I bought cheap, plus a bit of a drybrush with a tester pot. Total outlay only about £12.00 GBP or so.

The cacti are from Shellhole Scenics:




I based them on some mdf lasercut terrain bases from ERM, added some filler to blend them in, then painted them up starting with the bases and working up to the cacti.
