Great looking terrain.  How did you make the Elevation on the mountains? It looks like corrugated cardboard.  Thanks

Very nice terrain! Just out of curiosity, how big is each hex?  :)
At Comstar we listen. It's that simple.

Fantastic!  Could you put a few elements together to show how the trees, rivers, and rough ground look with the hills?

What a beautiful and modular setup. 

Bravo!

Newest addition to the table...City roads, with sidewalks.



awesome! Your roads are impressive. How did you make them?

The roads are quite easy, I use 1/8th MDF 2" Hexes bought from Gamecraft. I take 1in electrical tape to mark out the pattern and then draw off the edges of the tape with a pencil. I then remove the tape and dremmel a small grove where the pencil marks are. From there paint black and dry brush grey. The edges of the rural roads are created with putty and then painted brown and then drybrushed lighter browns...then flocked. The city roads' edges are just painted the same to represent concrete.

I use this Chinese ebay seller, has positive reviews and I got all my stuff within a week or so...his name is kinda funny, but like I said he delivered the correct product and I will be buying more. Just do a search for z scale, I used several trees of various sizes, but all z scale.

Do the trees come already 'assembled'? And is it actually 100 trees?

Asking you as you have purchased from him.

The first time I purchased the light green trees from him/her I ordered 50 and received 50.

Also, yes they come assembled, some were crushed, but they were easy to push/pull back into shape.

So this is what my city looks like so far with two different layouts. Far from done, just wanted to share.

Such nice terrain, very well made!

And I absolutely LOVE the billboard, somehow shows the scale of things in a more striking way when regular trees and buildings :)
The "nuka cola" billboard is just genius!
