I've built and completed two hills for use in 28mm and 15mm games. Shockingly, these are actually the first hills I have built since I was 13 or so. I think I had some tiered styrofoam hills I painted green. These hills are a little better. The small hill is styrofoam based on an Open Fire cardboard woods. The large hill is pink foam based on some hardboard. Both were cut to shape, covered with PVA and ballast, painted and flocked.
There isn't really too much else to say about these. I built them for Flames of War with the idea that they could be used for other scales as well. I built on of the hills with some fortifications to allow anti-tank teams, tanks, and artillery to hold a prepared position. This might make life a bit more difficult for my tank companies, but c'est la vie.
These were pretty straight forward to build. I glued styrofoam and pink foam to a base and then cut it to shape using a large bread knife and an exacto knife. I built the entrenched positions using some balsa and then used PVA and ballast to harden the styrofoam and add texture.
Tomorrow the scenery frenzy will continue! I have three woods to share and then later this week I'll include some more pictures of my finished train tracks. Finally, here is a picture of my 11th. Armoured Division squadron so far. I have three Stuart jalopies almost finished and another 10 armoured vehicles in progress. Check back soon for more painted models and terrain!
