This week I have been spending time working on my river sections for the Campaign. I plan to start on some marshes soon, these will be the last things i need to do to complete my terrain for the game. I can't wait to dive in and get going.
I created this muddy ford by using loads of PVA glue and mixing it with flock, then adding hundreds of tiny hoof and foot prints with the end of a brush. I later gave the mud a very light brushing with a gloss varnish to give it a wet appearance.These river sections were originally from War games Terrain, but as always I like to add my own little touches to things and so added rushes and reed beds. Also the colours were more stone than mud and earth, so that was another thing it changed along with adding grit, gravel and various flocks. Above are two fords, one muddy, the other stony. The shallow river bed was made by painting tiny stones and rocks on the river, then covering with gloss varnish.By adding small amounts of flock to the rivers edge and then varnishing, water plants/weeds were created.
