I Declare Independence from Terrain Mats!
2ftx2ft sections that have undulating ground on one side and a flat sea for naval gaming on the other. The plan is to build the sections by taking 1/4 inch plywood and framing the underside with 1x2 lumber. I'll fit polystyrene foam (pink insulation panels) on the inside of the frame and the carve it to represent terrain changes.
28mm scaled ironclads dueling on these - they will be in less than two weeks!
Next up - staining the wood.
This is my second attempt at building sectional terrain. I build so larger 2x5 panels in Sep of 2012 that were OK but they never get used. The draw backs of the larger sections is that I can only work on them in the garage and it's hard to store them (which makes the wife mad). In fact I've only used them twice. The smaller 2 foot sections will fit under my game table and I've got enough room to store an inventory of 22 panels. More over they'll fit on my painting desk which will make adding detailed terrain features both easier and more enjoyable.
