Construction couldn't be simpler - just cut some scrap fabric, in this case two different shades of green felt and some tan corduroy for plowed fields. The sections are then attached on the underside with duct tape. Short "teddy bear" fur would be even better for wheat fields but I don't have any on hand. I've also got some moral qualms about using teddy bear fur - what kind of monster is capable of trapping and then skinning wild teddy bears just for their fur? Barbaric.
I'm intending to use these for 15 and 6mm gaming. Pictured is a 15mm Austrian infantry battalion and the field edgig is perfect for light cover. At the 6mm scale the edges could even be hedgerows or bocage.
I like the look of the wall but but not the coloring. It will get a grey stain today but I'm afraid that will seep into the fabric. I'm also going to experiment with staining the field a darker tan brown and other details. If the wall staining fails I think I'l just make a bunch of stone wall sections in 12 inch lengths and then cut them to fit. On second thought, the pre-made walls is likely they better way to go as I can also add things likes gates and openings. Plus one can never have enough wall sections when making terrain.
Overall this is really promising and I think they add a lot of character to a bland table top.
By the way, here's hoping there is a Historicon in 2020. Im pretty confident there will be and will plan accordingly.
So if I can use the club's why make more? Well two reasons, (i) so I can use them at home when I host games and (ii) there's a lot of wear and tear on terrain is it gets transported and used at conventions and I'd rather not inflict that on the clubs terrain. Plus I need some creative outlet as I'm helping my portfolio companies go through a rather devastating interruption in activity.
Stay safe everyone.
