Olde Englande - A Terrain Project

I don't get out much these days, at least not without small children in tow, and almost all extracurricular activities have been cancelled with the exception of 5 a side on a Sunday evening. It's lucky I really like playing football or losing every week would be upsetting, but it's not its really enjoyable. Back on subject and I don't get to wargame, no, not at all.  But I did get a wars of the roses novel at Christmas and it inspired me enough to look on the Internet for wars of the roses battle reports, and in doing so I came across the blog of a chat with the most remarkable scenery building skills, and he has inspired me to plagiarise his work.

So here we are - attempting to create a mostly rural English  (or welsh) set of terrain to cover the period between around 1200 and 1700 in 28mm scale so I can use it for wars of the roses and the English Civil war, and most probably many other periods besides. 

This is part one, and I've included some work in progress pictures,  and a shot of a test piece I put together. I'm writing on a tablet which means the photos may be iffy, and the text short, I may/may/might go into detail another time on the how's etc, but cannot claim originality of ideas.


  1. I certainly hope you will do follow up articles of your terrain and also maybe a link to the blog you found.

    1. It is, indeed, only fair because these are his (frankly brilliant) ideas -http://wargamingwithsilverwhistle.blogspot.co.uk

  2. These look great Rick. Love to see how you did them. Only just realised we haven't seen you at the club for a while - don't think I've seen you since the Arnhem game. Surely you can get a pass occasionally.

    Cheers, Andy
