I realized that my NWF terrain was sadly lacking, consisting of mostly of pine bark that Vince Clyant and I knocked off the trees in his yard. I had been given some 2" thick pink insulation styrofoam, which is much denser, but not much heavier than, white styrofoam.
I initialy got out an assortment of tools that would have complemented a house builder; hand saw, electric carving knife, hot wire cutter, hunting knife, etc. After two hills, I realized that, for rugged hills, only the hand saw, electric carving knife, hot glue gun. and a craft (Xacto with a #11 blade) knife, were necessary.
So here are my new hills, first from 4 directions.
If you click on the picture, the three figures descending the ramp are the well-known Ballentine, McChesney, and Cutter. These are quick and dirty conversions of Ral Partha officers. Ballentine's pistol was exchanged for a mounted officer's sword hand (he now has the pistol.) Cutter had his pistol cut away and the Thugee axe made from a sword for a set of Abyssinians from Reviresco (not on his list. You have to ask for them. The are also true 35s, with a plethora of weapons)
To paint the hills, I first went to Lowes and found a gallon (whining)"I wanted you to match the other side of the drapes" of tan for $5.00, which was applied with the cheapest 2" brush they had. This is to for a barrier for the spray paint. The vertical sides were sprayed with Krylon Low Odor Jungle Print Satin, after the latex had dried. The horizontal surfaces were sprayed with Valspar Stone Santa Fe Sand.
So, quick and dirty hills!
