It's amazing what you can accomplish when you retire early, set your own schedule, and get to take long walks in the woods with your favorite dogs. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I've been taking pictures "off trail" in an attempt to get a realistic look for the terrain I'm building for our French and Indian War battles using Rebels and Patriots.


An enjoyable discovery is that building terrain for large skirmish games is not that difficult. It is also not that expensive; rocks from the woods, sticks and twigs I find, railroad hobby trees, florist moss, old CDs/DVDs and fine hobby railroad ballast. Almost forgot – white glue!
