Finished Marshland!

A German grenadier enjoys a quick roll up, dressed in his Zeltbahn quarter tent. He looks around for the way out of this wetland hell.
The rushes and reeds were all painted browns and dry brushed green and cut down to fit with the figure scale (28mm). Taller clumps were later added to give a bit of variety and character.

Well they're finally finished and can be cleared away, after taking up my dining room table for more than a month or so. They were fun to do and I loved painting the water areas and getting depth by shading the paint.
They are quite large bases and any unit wishing to advance will be forced to trudge through them, rather than skirt around their edges.

Nice work on the marshes, and great job on the grendier's camo.!

However, isn't this a distraction from the campaign ...? ;-)

Yes I know, but a change is as good as a rest in my book. Don't worry, I'll get back to those Romans soon.
