Homestretch on the forests

Hi everyone, I was going to be trying to post up completed images of the forests. But due to drying times etc the job ran on a little longer than I anticipated.

Although I am happy to call them about 95% done. Here's where we're at this evening.



Flocking the forests:


If you've been keeping up with the project  you'll remember I said the club terrain is going to be in a more alpine/mountainous theme. My own forests I haven't really decided upon. I'm leaning more toward a dead/autumnal forest theme, I'll get back to those a little later.



The brown material in the picture above is wood shavings, run through a food processor and dyed with paint/ink. I'm using it to simulate leaf litter and mulch under the trees etc


I've used the same mossy/turf as I did on the rocky areas on the realm of battle boards, I'm just waiting for the glue to set right now so I can knock off the excess. With it being mainly rocky themed terrain I thought it would look nice to have the forests provide a lot more greenery to the table.

The grey areas you can see exposed on the forest bases are what really needs finishing. I'll be muckying them up with paint/washes and when I've finally decided upon the colour for the water features, will be filled to match the boards.




Well that's it... Just another quickie from me.

I hope everyone is doing fine, you take care of yourselves.

    1. Thank you. Yeah I'm going to be sorry to let them go. I may have to do my own mountainous terrain when I have more time/funds.
