Title: board terrain #2
Post by: SeeM on 30 September 2019, 14:37:29
I already have FASA sizes hexed terrain and very much enjoy it, but decided to go a little bigger this time. I have some forests and some hills (aktually: that is all the hills). Bigger hexes allows to place a 'Mech properly in the forest and make weapon distances a little more realistic. Next phases are water and city outskirts.

Is that corrugated cardboard to make the hills/bases?  I'm working on something similar myself right now

It is cork: light, very durable and very easy to glue and paint. Similar to this: https://www.amazon.com/Quartet-Corkboard-Bulletin-Natural-102/dp/B0018DHBAK . Unfortunately those hills are still too low to properly cover BattleMech by level 2.

And another fun fact: those kind of layered rocks are quite common, ex. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/c9/Kuku%C5%82cze_ska%C5%82y._Punkt_widokowy.jpg .

Thanks. Actually, those are road trains, Gienah-Durapaq Elite Series 3 wannabees. And there are more, than two.

They are half based on Brigane Models monorail series http://www.brigademodels.co.uk/6mmSF/Monorail.html and custom tracked chassis from Red Alert 2.

Transported vehicles are Scotia Grendel scrap and old 1:300 models from GZG. Fits the scale and it is good enough.
