Rupert, you are a prince of a terrain maker.

I am, frankly, jealous.

Thank you sir.

To be fair though I'm constantly surprising myself how well things keep turning out. I've built plenty of not so great scenery over the years.

This time around I've found myself inspired by watching YouTube videos by model railway and diorama builders there are so many great ideas on those videos and seeing people actually doing things rather than reading about them has really helped me put some ideas I've had into practice.

Great looking terrain! And remember the first rule: never get between a hippo and the river.

I think the first rule is don't go anywhere near hippo infested water…

The water hole is great!

I see your research into hippos led you across pink oil. You learn the oddest things in this hobby!

I think I'd have a hard time playing on this type of terrain board…..
