I know, I know I`m still doing the Normandy board

thing lol. Its been on hold for a while but my

creative juice has returned and its back to the

grind stone. I have been working on a small river/

stream and its taken some time to get it right. I hate

the lovely blue rivers you get on most wargaming boards

and wanted something a bit more disgusting looking to be

exact. Thus I need multiple coats of varnish over lots of

greens and browns because that’s the colour of the nearest

stream to me.

Now I have got the basis of the river in place I can

start to work on the bocage around it. I hope to cover

a lot of the river with overgrown stuff so it really looks

like a silted up, stagnant , slow running river.

Loads more work to do on the trench section and gun battery pits

but that will be a lot easier to do than the river.

    Looking really good! Every time I see your terrain boards, I get jealous, and want to make some. But then I remember I’d have to live with them!

    The river looks amazing. I like boards, but until I settle down in one place they are not an option. I wouldn’t mind making some flexible rivers similar to what you have so they can represent larger rivers than the streams I have. I just need to get focused!

      Thanks . The river is just layers and layers of clear varnish over some green/brown paint. 2×2 boards actually don’t take up that much space especially when they are stacked on top of each other. Saying that you still need a spare corner in your house to hide them in.
