Shoreline Completed!

Well, more or less completed anyway, there's a few other bits and pieces I'd like to do but time constraints mean I have to lock the shoreline down now for SELWG. Two weeks to go and I have the Necromancer and three points of Vikings to complete (base colours done, shading up next). I also have a few extra bits of scenery for the table that need highlighting and flocking. These are just for atmosphere though and won't affect gameplay. More on that once they are done.

So it's time for another test photo, to see how the river looks on my GW grass mat.

 

 

Remember the idea was to have some river terrain that was relatively quick and easy to make but still looked good for our games. Well I'm pretty pleased with the result. Of course it will look much better with a Viking ship hauled up on the shingle bank.

Here's an overview.

 

In person the terrain is a little darker than my grass mat, but close enough for our purposes.

Last but not least here's one of the three marshes I recently made. These will be the main obstacle between the sacked monastery and the Viking ship.

  1. Yeah...that looks brilliant! That Adrian's Walls Viking Ship would look perfect there! ;-)

    1. Thanks Gordon. Stop tempting me with that ship! One day, one day... Actually not sure where Paul's is from. However, he did say it had removable rowers

  2. That looks fantastic! I have the Gripping Beast Dragonship which would also look great sailing down that!

    I really like the way you can replace the river colour underneath, so it can be blue one day for a European battle, and the muddy Mekong Delta the next

    1. Thanks Paul. Quite right about the changable water. There is another roll of vinyl in brown with the same subtle pattern that I was considering using.

  3. Nice, I do like how it's turned out. I'd be happy to have that on my table... hint, hint;)

    Cheers

  4. Must do something like this myself - it's very effective!

    1. Thanks Hugh. I plan on using the river for our games of Hail Caesar as well, so need to make another 4 foot, perhaps more!
