I have been playing Bolt Action for some time now and it was
about time I sorted some half decent terrain out.

The aim was produce six terrain boards and ensure everything was
easy to set up and put away with the minimum of fuss. The ability
to stack everything away in a small space was also a high priority.

The boards were extremely simple (2 x 2 feet) and made from a wooden
frame with an mdf base. A styrene block was inserted into the recess and
sealed with masonry paint. I even managed to recycle some old Flames Of
War boards into the process. Each board was given a basic flock coating
and a road textured with sand was added.

I then created a typical Normandy walled farm complex that can be easily
removed and put away in a box. The superb buildings are from Ham and Jam
and come pre painted at a crazy low price. The price is even lower if
you buy in bulk at a wargaming show.
All the building have been modified slightly by me, so foliage added, weathering,
metal building braces, interior painting, interior scatter, interior flooring,
interior ladders and external telegraph points.

I have also created a few items to add to the Normandy theme. So we have green
house, cider press, milk churns, a rusting bike, hay bales, telegraph poles and wires,
road signs and adverts, flower planters and water troughs, a well, a cart and anything
else you can spot. I also created plenty of trees, bushes, hedges, walls and a road block
if needed.

I needed some more scenery for my Bolt Action boards and

noticed there is a lot of farm equipment made by Britains that

would nicely do the job on fleabay. Its 1:32 scale according to

the official guide but I think a lot of the Britains stuff fits in

quiet nicely if your not to particular.

You get a white plastic kit in sections for £10 and not much else.I

managed to get a grass roller thrown in as well(it all helps).

I assembled the greenhouse and added some wooden boards for

plants made from balsa wood and added a stone paving effect

path inside.

I then based the greenhouse on plasticard and added various bits

inside giving the look of a discarded neglect. The rusty roller went inside

along with some Noch plant pots and various odds and ends. I also

added an out of control creeper escaping through the roof.

The glass is clear plasticard with a green wash to represent mould and

decay.

And goodnight from the greenhouse.
