As I mentioned the other day, I'm looking into playing some games that use relatively small playing areas (much smaller than any terrain-boards I own), so I decided to make some 1' x 1' terrain tiles.

My original plan was just to flock the tiles with the same "flock mix" I've been using for the past fifteen years or so, but when I mentioned it on the forums, CPBelt suggested:

You might want to consider switching to Scenic Express flock, which is cheaper and better than Woodland Scenics. My favorite is Pasture Blend.
Flock & Turf

Something new in the world of flock? According to the website:

A New Generation of Scenic Foam Textures featuring a rich palette of fifty colors, textures and blends to satisfy the most discriminating modeler. Flock & Turf provides superior foam quality, permanent color durability and greater value.

I was skeptical. Sure, it might look good, but would it hold up to wargaming? But it looked worth a try, so I perused the listings, and finally settled on:

Scrub Grass sample from catalogue
Scrub Grass Blend - Blended coarse foam and static flock textures. Ideal for wild and natural terrains.

So I placed the order for some flock - plus some recommended accessories...
