Walls n such

This is just a quick part two of the terrain project. This time the ever popular linear obstacles, a main stay of seemingly any gaming terrain. Plus a ruined building.

With a lot more power tooling of 6mm MDF board the bases for the walls and hedges were produced. It may be very easy to create a wall from a strip of something but the key is basing it well enough to not break or warp. I set about building three styles of obstacle; rough stone wall, hedge, and a dressed wall with posts to match the building.

Suddenly pictures...

Chunky bases. Shallower bevel than previous pieces due to the shape.
Foamboard and balsa wood construction.
Strips cut from aero board and green scourer at work here.
Feasible set up, Scars of Caen scorched nobles estate?
Detailing for building and filler underway. Floorboards are are coffee stirrers.
Front step tiles are cut from GW custom movement tray.
Balsa wood works so well for many things, the broken corner supports make use of the natural wood appearance.
After two coats of a rough filler mix, the effect of the walls seems to work well.
Painting and flocking almost complete.
