The hill is based on the Games Workshop modular hill. After base-coating it with black spray paint I covered the stony parts with Citadel Rough Coat, a structure paint spray whose production was cancelled about two years ago. Afterwards I painted the rocks with Citadel Foundation Charadon Granite and drybrushed with Vallejo London Grey. I like that silightly brownish tone of Charadon Granite. However the lawn was painted green and covered it with some medium-light green static grass. Looks like springtime... A bit too tidy... I should keep that in mind when working on my new boards: They shall look more realistic and less like Wimbledon.
The Bocages were built as described in my tutorial (here). Fearing for his fingers Niclas was a bit hesitant with the hot glue gun. Therefore I had to fix some holes but generally I'm satisfied. Only one piece of Bocages has to be overworked. When I covered the pebbles with thinned PVA glue I was too freehanded and disfifured some poly fibre shrubbery Niclas apllied on the base. I'll present pictures when I meded the worst.
|Two end section and a centrepiece. I should afforest the right piece a bit...|
|Two other centerpieces. Taken as a whole I've got about 1m Bocages now. Far from enough for a Normandy game...|
But not this weekend. Tomorrow I'll visit the Re-Action-Convention in Rheindahlen (Germany) and absorb some new ideas there. Especially some 28mm stuff would be interesting since I plan a little sidestep there.
However I'll post a review next week.
