Very nice, especially the wild hedges and the gates.
I am going to build a wargames army, a big beautiful wargames army, and Mexico is going to pay for it.

Great tutorial. That is how I make my hedges. Only I use coconut fibres for lining hanging flower pots. As rubberized horsehair is very difficult to get hold of here.

And I have begun to round of the ends of my bases, so that my hedges don't always need to be square. If that makes any sense.

Thanks for the tutorial.
Nice idea to put some 'hedge' bits either end of the gates.
It really does help the gates blend in.
I also like the ruined gate. I do not know of any of my wargaming
mates who would:-
stop their tank; get out to open the gate & close it after them.
They do not follow the Country Code! (just drive through)
